Things to try:
1. Remove and reconnect the hard drive.
2. Remove all USB attached devices. Like other hard drives and anything non-critical.
3. Wipe and reinstall Windows once the hard drive is properly installed.
4. Replace hard drive if bad.

Try reinstalling your windows. If you get an error on install the problem is probably in your hard drive, in which case you'll have to replace your hard drive and reinstall your windows. I really don't think it's a hard drive issue though. Sounds more like a registry issue but the easiest fix is to reinstall windows. Good Luck.

I bought this emachine in july and it had to be restored because it lost my personal settings it said then after the restore it lost my desktop icons and taskbar and now it only comes on the widows xp...


If this was a new machine & still under warranty I would take it back to get it repaired. I suspect that it hasgot a hard drive that could be on the way out. If this is a second hand machine, get a new drive & re-install Windows or install Linux instead, it would work even better.

This is caused by two files that are corrupt on your system. If you can get to another XP computer and get the following two files from the windows\system32 folder and copy them to the same location on your hard drive.

When I attempt to log on to my computer, I get message "Loading personal settings", but it immediately changes to "Logging off"...I can't even log on.....HELP!!! I am using an emachines w4685....


Hi,
My Name is ArmyMason, I am here to help you. Are you seeing any flash of Blue Screen before it reboots? If not it sounds like you have a boot virus. If you can't boot to Safe Mode best the way to fix this is to pull out the hard drive and put it into another computer that has up to date Antivirus. On the hard drive are pins with a little plastic piece attached to them above that should be a diagram SL = Slave, MS = Master, CS = Cable Select. Depending on the Setting the persons harddrive that is in the computer you are about to put that Hard Drive into depends on the setting you need for your Hard Drive. So remember or right down the setting of your hard drive. If there hard drive is set to Master set your hard drive to slave. If there hard drive is set to Cable Select set yours to Calbe select. With the computer off and unplugged, locate the cable that the hard drive is connected to and take your hard drive and connect it to the second connector which is in the middle of the cable. This is where all slave hard drives go. Note: Dont worry you wont infect the host computer with a virus, because its not an active partition. <--- techy info... Now boot the computer and once the Hard Drive is detected run the Antivirus program on that drive.

There are other solutions, but this is one way you can remove the virus without having to format your computer and start over. If its a Blue Screen please make a post with blue screen issues so that we can figure out exactly what the error is.

Emachines 2792


pull the power plug as soon as the emacines logo comes on
and if that doesn't work pull out the power as soon as the first windows logo screen comes on. it should then come on and give you the option to start in safe mode or regular mode, choose safe mode then after it comes on in safe mode restart the cpu
then it should come on in regular mode i don't know why it works for my emachines cpu but it does . i'm looking at downloading a error fixing program because i'm doing this almost when ever i turn off my cpu hope this helps if not reformat your hard drive andput windows on again it worked last time i had this problem.
