Try inserting your Windows CDROM at startup and look for press any key to boot from cd.
Wait 'til " Welcome to Setup" occurs and press R for repair.
Type Administrator password or just click enter after choosing
(most likely) 1. At windows prompt, type fixboot and after self
repair type exit.

The system is likely encountering a critical error and
theautomatically restart option has been selected in
the startup andrecovery options.
Right click on My Computer and select
Properties/Advanced Tab/Startup and
Recovery/Settings Button.

Under System Failure, uncheck the Automatically Restart
option. Thiswill allow the error to be displayed when
the problem is encountered.

You need to perform some troubleshooting steps to
try and locate exactly where the problem is coming
from.

Good Luck...Nate P.

At the startup menu i am getting a message that says, Reboot and Select Proper Boot Device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device."


Firt thing you can check is wthr your harddrive is detected or not. to do that you have to enter to the BIOS,To Enter BIOS you have to press DELET or F1 or F2 key(Mostly DELET). Now inside the BIOS in main menu check if your hard drive is showing or not. If it is showing there then you try to find out boot sequence, option after getting the boot sequence optuon check if the first device is other then hard drive.
if your harddrive is detected and your first boot device is also set to HARD drive then it might that your Operating system is Crash, in that case you need to re install the OS.
Now if you can see your hardrive in your BIOS then you can open the case( remember to unplug all the cable, Power, VGA, KEYboar ...etc) and try to inter change the harddrive cable connting cable, i mean just try to chage the port of the cable to other one and try switch on your computer ... if still you find the same problem then try changing new cable. ....well if still you have the same problem then i am afraid that you might need to replace the hard drive with new one.

Sorry for the Bad Englsih. Hope the above steps will work for you and you understood what i tried to say.
Cheers:)

Emachine wants to: " reboot an select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device an press any key " . I dont have a boot media or know what is the proper doot device....


The proper boot device is your hard drive, when you boot hit F2 while it is booting up and it will bring up the screen to change boot devices select the hard drive and save the settings and this should work if it dont it is possible that your hard drive has bit the dust.

Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media


its basically telling you that your master hard drive with O/S installation cannot be found in the booting system...Check if your master HD is not corrupted and see if your O/S still exist or maybe wiped out..

When I turn it on it says Reboot and select proper boot device or Insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key.


Please verify if you don;t have a floppy disk in your drive. If you don't then you have to verify in BIOS if is selected proper boot device - HDD.
If everything is set then you have problem with your hard disk, must check and install new operating system.
