Most likely solution:
your e-machine needs to be started with a Windows XP CD in the primary drive (if there are two optical drives, it's usually the first one)
You should see a message that says: Press any key to start from CD
Hit the spacebar quickly when you see this message, then allow the process to take you to a screen which says: Repair Windows. Choose to hit the ESCape key to NOT perform a repair to your current Windows installation. The next screen offering should let you see the partitions (plural) that exist on the hard drive. Choose them one at a time and DELETE them! There could be as many as 3!
IF you see that there are other "drives" listed, then you have a card reader device on the front panel of your PC. Unplug the PC, open the side panel (right side as you face the back), find the cable that runs from the Motherboard to the card reader device & pull the cable end off of the motherboard, paying attention to how it was attached (orientation), 'cause you're gonna have to put it back later.
Replace the side panel, power on the PC, eject the Windows XP CD, insert the Ubuntu CD in the drive, close the drive drawer, then pull the power plug to shut it down again.
Hit the power button and start up again and your Ubuntu software now has a clean pallette from which to work. Hope this helps and works out for you. Best wishes, Jim
