Depending on which disc if its your hard drive

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they might be faulty a computer needs its connections continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps you

I reformatted by emachines m5312 but windows xp can not proceed to windows setup-setup is starting windows and it turns off the laptop

Windows is very fussy about the hard drive being formatted

I would try a different Operating System just to be sure the rest of it is OK

The fix for you is to verify that XP can be installed with your disk.

Try a different hard drive

This is an extremely difficult problem. You may want to take it to a shop and have them install XP for you.

My laptop, emachine m5312 shuts down by itself despite the power settings to stay on, any ideas?

it may be set to hibernate in the bios. if it's randomly shutting down while you are working then you probably have an overheat issue.
