There is usually a hot key you can press during boot up to start recovery (F11 is typical) This will guide you through the recovery process. I would first check all of your cables going to your hard drive, and also the one going from the hard drive to the motherboard. See if that helps. Best of luck to you!

My Emachine T5010 reboots on Windows loading screen.


Before windows loads press F8 on the keyboard to get an advanced menu.
choose the option that says disable automatic restart on error and see what error you get.
Also try the Safe Mode option.
That click sounds like the harddrive is failing.

I need to know the reboot menu on the t1090 thamks


What OS is installed?
A lot of Windows machines will let you into the boot menu by tapping F12 continuously when you restart the unit.
Tapping F8 accomplishes the same thing on some machines.
Check this thread as well, it may assist:

Your description of the problem isn't very specific- ie: Do you get a specific error message when booting the machine?

IO1_Initialization_Failed error on Emachine


Try starting it in Safe Mode (hit F8 key at boot-up). If you see the error "Page_Fault_in_nonpaged_Area stop", you have bad memory usually. If you have 2 memory modules installed, remove one and reboot. If you get the error, remove that memory module and install the other. If it boots cleanly, you have a bad memory module.

My computer wont start up


First try pressing F2 at start up to see if you can get to setup. Also pressing F12 may get you a boot menu. If cd is already set as first boot you may get a chance to boot from a Windows cd. The idea here is to get to a minimal Windows configuration like setup or safe mode (F8) to see if this is a hardware or operating system fault. Two common issues with eMachines are power supply problems where repetitive reboots can actually fry the motherboard or if the PC has a few years use the CMOS battery. Steve Medley

HP Desktop keeps rebooting itself


Hi Julie, the boot order is not correct. You need to change the order to boot to you're cdrom first than to you're hard disk drive.
To change that order go to the boot section of you're bios. Move to select you're cdrom & press enter on the keyboard & a list will open. You cam move devices up & down by pressing the + or - keys. Once you have corrected the boot order save & exit.
As the pc begins to start back up, press the F8 key every 2 seconds. A window will open, look for ( Disable automatic restart on system failure ). Choose the option. Windows should continue to load windows. If you see any error messages write them down & post them here.
If windows does not load continue following as mentioned below.
Check if the PC continues to reboot itself. If it continues to do so than you're windows boot files may be corrupted or worse. Load you're restore cd or you're windows cd into you're cdrom drive & restart you're PC. You should see. to load the cd press any key... (Press the space bar). You're cd will start to load. If you're using windows or the restore cd follow the on screen instruction to reinstall windows (ONLY). Doing a reinstall will not earse you're personall data. Do not format you're drive, (Yet). Finish installing windows. The PC will restart once or twice & you will see ( to load from CD press any key... ) Do nothing, windows will continue installing. When finished run windows update till there are no more updated. Some programs will need to be reinstalled, like printer software.

Post back if you need more help or have questions.
Good Luck Julie!
Mike
