You have provided some good information, but more detail is needed.

Is the system still under warranty? How long ago did this start? Have you added any new hardware or software?

Your reboot issue might not be hard drive or MBR related. Disconnect everything not needed for booting. Even disconnect keyboard and mouse to see if it will get to the Windows Desktop.

If that works, start adding until you get the reboot problem again.

If none of that helps and you need to recover data from the computer, buy or borrow a hard drive you can boot to for the computer and when you are able to boot to Windows, you can back up your important data, then wipe the drive and reload Windows or leave it blank as extra storage capacity depending upon your desire or circumstances.

Let me know if you have questions.

How do i boot my windows xp when only the wallpaper shows, no icons nothing


First Question John is simple but have you tried to reboot or have you tried to simply go into Recovery mode, even if you do not get there all the way, if it stops before you get to the Safe Mode Screen, just kill your box cold and restart. If not you may have gotten your boot sequence done.
Check on your C drive which you may have to get to via DOS commands and see if your Boot.ini file on the Root of the /C/ drive is similar to mine - except I still like to run this older box with Win XP Pro -
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

How do you put the Windows XP back to factory default in the start?


There's two ways, one is using system restore and using the oldest restore point, as long as the points weren't deleted to increase storage space.

The other way is to use a windows XP install disk and doing a fresh install of XP.


As for a system, you can restore a system like a pre-built, say a eMachine using the recovery partition or recovery disks.

I have an eMachine t3516 that I would like to restore back to factory settings. I understand there's a recovery management partition on the HDD. how do I access it?


to access the recovery partition, reboot the machine. when you reboot the machine you will see at the BIOS skip screen "PRESS F2 or DEL etc... for System Recovery".

System logging off as soon as i starts it. Please see details..


Looks like you've tried a lot. Try this stuff.

1) Try F11 instead.
2) Dunno. Corruption?
3) chkdsk /f
4) Microsoft EULAs are much less crackable than their software, according to BitTorrent.

You need to make sure that the computer is booting to the cd/rom. I think on an e-machine that you have to hit F-10 when the big e-machine splash screen appears and then choose cd-rom.

Recovery CD WIN XP


Upon startup, quickly hit Delete; this will get you into the main BIOS menu - check with Compaq's documentation, and the BIOS documentation for specifics, but generally you want to format a FAT32 partition
