Question about E-Machines T3092 PC Desktop
The pc turns on runs thru its normal process, and then a screen saver appears but none of the icons on the desktop appear. It will just hang there. Any suggestions... I have tried using the system's recovery disk, and no luck. I tried reinstalling the MBR and then restarted the pc and still nothing. There is an option to reinstall everything but most files will be lost. If that is my last resort I will do that, just thought if there was something to prevent losing files? Please and Thank you
If you have your Windows installation disk then you need tp press 'R' for repair instead of a full installation. This will repair all the system files and you will not lose any documents or settings. But I think maybe you have a bad sector on your hard drive, so when you get up and running go to your HDD manufacturer web site for a diagnosis and repair.
