According to the issue you've got, the following tips may be available to you.1.An efficiency troubleshooting step on hardware is to start your computer with the minimum hardware necessary to run the operating system. If your computer starts successfully it proves that one of the removed hardware devices was the cause of the STOP message. Otherwise move to the next solution.
2.Boot your computer in Safe Mode by pressing F8 at startup. Then go to My Computer and right-click on Disk C to select Properties from the dropdown menu. From the Tools tab, perform an error check and disk cleaning. 3.If the about two solutions doesn't work, the last one I can suggest to you is to create a bootable disk. It is the most quick and effective way for you to solve the problem. You just need to download a software can be used to burn your CD/usb into a bootable one and then boot your computer from it. Run the software to fix the issue after that. There are few free software for you to use, so if you want to take this solution money is indispensable. Windows Boot Genius owns a better cost/performance among such kinds of software I've used. It may be a good choice for you if you have money to pay.
By the way,reinstall your operating system can also help you out if nothing important stores in it.

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.

My hp computer, windows xp starts with the blue screen then shortly after to a black one telling me to restart error or reboot and select boot device. what do i need to do so i can use my computer again...


Ok the problem here is your computer is booting for the cd drive or floppy dish drive. Try restart the computer and bring up the setup utility (either esc or f2, it should come up when computer is switched on) select booting device, and change it from boot from CD.
Any further questions feel free to ask.
