Run diagnostics on the system, see if a hardware failure is detected (Hard drive is most suspect)

If you cannot run diagnostics, see if you can boot to your windows XP cd go to recovery console and run CHKDSK /R

as a last resort reinstall Windows

Or, telephone eMachines, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" disks.

For that you need to repair your windows.
Insert recovery disk into cd/dvd rom then when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or del or ALT+F2 key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot menu and set first boot device as cd/dvd rom then save settings and exit.
Then it boor with recovery disk follow the procedure and choose Repair option for repair windows.

Without a setup disc there's not much you can do other than take it to a repair shop.

Alternatively do you know anyone with a setup disc?

You'll also need to download the drivers for your m/c from the makers website.

Computer won't reboot


Check your BIOS settings, specifically the diskette drive setting. Next, check the cabling to the drive itself. Your problem may have nothing to do with the diskette drive, but check it out. Next, have someone download hard drive diagnostics for the brand of drive in the machine. You could have errors on the drive, and a diagnostic program may locate, repair them. The startup disks, these do a full system restore, reinstall of the operating system? The machine will boot from the first startup disk and begin the reload process?
