Usually when it gets caught in a restart loop it means the Operating System is corrupt. Sometimes an .ini file is missing or corrupt, sometimes a hardware/software update causes a stop error. If the data on the hard drive is not critical use the e-machines recovery dvd and reload the OS. If you need all data on the hard drive I would suggest downloading a "Live CD" like the Linux distribution of "Puppy"
this will load an os into ram and you can then "mount' the hard drive and back up all data on the hard drive to cd/dvd.

try starting your computer in safe mode. if you see anything that you havent installed, delete it and try restarting. if it doesn't work, then you probably will need to do the system recovery

venkatachalam,

How to Enable Boot Logging in Windows By Dan Gookin from Troubleshooting Your PC For Dummies, 3rd Edition
Two event log files that come in handy for troubleshooting your PC are the boot log files. These files are created when you specify boot logging as a start-up option. The files are named either ntbtlog.txt or bootlog.txt, depending on how old your PC is. These files, found in the Windows folder, list the success or failure of various pieces of Windows as it's loaded into memory from the PC's mass storage system.
You can enable or disable boot logging by using the MSCONFIG utility. Follow these steps in Windows 7 and Windows Vista:
  1. Press Win+R to summon the Run dialog box.
  2. Type msconfig and press Enter.
  3. In Windows Vista, type the administrator's password or click the Continue button.
  4. Click the Boot tab.
  5. Place a check mark by the item Boot Log.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click the Restart button to restart now. Otherwise, click Exit without Restart.
    The logging doesn't take effect until you restart Windows, and you have no reason to do so immediately unless you really want to see the boot log.
In Windows XP, you can enable boot logging by pressing the F8 key when Windows first starts and choose the item Enable Boot Logging.
The boot log is overwritten every time you start Windows. And, the log is produced only when you turn on the boot logging option.
What can you do with the boot log? You can check for the failed installation of certain pieces of Windows or device drivers. The drivers or files are obviously flagged in the log. Because you know the filename, you can then either disable it from loading or look for an update.
  • Activating the boot log in Windows 7 or Windows Vista means that you configured your PC for a custom start-up. If that bothers you, disable the boot log after you cull whatever useful information you need from the boot log file; repeat the steps used to enable boot logging, but in Step 5, remove the check mark.
  • Traditionally, computer logs are all text files. They may have the filename extension log, or they may use txt instead.
  • You can search for log files by using the Windows Search command. Simply look for files named *log* anywhere on the hard drive, including system, hidden, and non-indexed locations.
  • Most log files are in plain text, but the text may be organized by using the XML, or Extensible Markup Language. XML is merely a way to organize information, and although XML files are readable as text, to get the most from the information, you should use an XML reader, such as the Event Viewer program.
  • If you find the file boot.ini on your Windows XP computer, you can enable boot logging by modifying the file. Open it in Notepad and look for the line that contains this text:
    Windows="Windows XP (That's only a portion of the line; in the file, it's longer). Add the text /bootlog to the end of the line. Save the file. When you restart Windows, boot logging takes place automatically.

during the black screen of turning on
keep tapping f8 not hold look for safe mode by navigating your arrow keys

press the start you can see a search box right ?( just on top of the start ) Just type system SYSTEM RESTORE.Just press next . make it is designated to a date wherein you can log on in before in case it will happen again do the same thing .
You may also removed your password Once you log in successfully to safe mode go to control panel > useraccounts > removed password


In case you can not still log on to windows the best way is to set it to factory defaults however al lyour files will be removed .You may used a license windows disc for a clean install

I forgot my password what disc do i need to buy


if its the windows password you forget , the one it asks before logging into windows then you may be able to override it by booting into safemode (press F8 before windows starts) and then choosing to log into administrator instead of your own account, then click start > control panel >user accounts. Choose your account and then click on remove password. Then just restart the pc and you wont be prompted for a password. This will only work if you have not set your account as the only administrator.
