This could possibly be a driver issue. Please disconnect all devices connected to the computer other than the mouse, keyboard and monitor during installation. If installation completes successfully, then you may reconnect the devices.
I suggest you open it up and check for bad capacitors. I have a T1742 right now that I am replacing capacitors on. They're round, a little bigger than a pencil, less than an inch tall and the ones you will be looking for are close to the microprocessor heat sink.
They are supposed to be perfectly flat on the top (you'll see plenty of others on the motherboard that are still good.) If they have bulged out or bulged out and leaked, they are bad.
Replacing these is not easy, you have to know where to get the parts and how to solder items connected to ground and voltage planes on a motherboard.
I'm sorry, but unless you can fix this yourself, or know someone that will fix it for you, your computer is now done. The cost of taking it into GeekSquad is more than a buying new cheap computer. And with WinXP you can't just take your hard drive out and put it into another old computer and make it run. Before you take it to recycling though, remove the hard drive, as you should be able to connect it to a computer and still get all your information off.
You need to go to:
if there is an exclamation mark within a yellow sign .. this means your driver is not installed and your network card will not work untill you get the driver installed which will identify to your motherboard that the device is network card.
I would suggest going to google and search the motherboard model number for drivers and go to the e-machines website or actual manufactuer website for genuine drivers then install it. The device should work.
There are a lot of things that can cause this kind of problem. You might try swapping out the cable connecting the monitor if you have an extra, or if you're lucky and own another computer, you can try to use another monitor, or connect another tower to the monitor in question to see if another computer works better with it.
If you've determined that it's not the monitor or the cable, it's most likely going to be an issue with your graphics adapter. If you are not comfortable messing around with the interior of your machine, a shop could help you do further testing to see what needs to be done. Most likely, a new motherboard will be the solution, since your particular computer's graphics chipset resides on the motherboard itself.
As a final hint, I've seen a lot of Emachines with motherboard issues at my primary place of work. You might try contacting Emachines if the machine is less than a year old, since it would fall under manufacturer's warranty and you can get the board replaced for free.
Xbox Live is having problems guys they are working on it and hope to have it fixed sometime this week the problem you guys are having is due to the xbox live being down.

Bad capacitor(s) on the motherboard can cause this problem, corrupted BIOS maybe... try flashing BIOS.
Probably the CPU if your not getting any error code beeps on startup.. NO Processor for the BIOS instructions thus no Beeps !
