if you have a recovery option you can try that. that option allows you to reload the previously known good start up operating system before you added any new updates. you should have an option to choose a previous date.
There are several options. This is what I would do: Go to the E-Machines site and get the fix from them. If they don't have it I would down load the files to the hard drive and burn a CD. When you make the cd ensure your folders are labeled DISK1, DISK2, ... there should be 1 folder for each disk and then make a folder DSK and put all the files in that folder. As long as none of them share a name you should be good. The cd will need to be Bootable. Boot the machine from the CD and try running the fix from teh DSK folder. If that does not work. Reboot the machine from the cd, Open the Disk1 folder and startt the program. Now, if none of that works or you feel you haven''t really put anything on the computer you need to keep the fastest option to get back up and running is to put the CD that came with the E-machine in the drive and reboot the computer. Choose Repair system or Restore to Factory settings when the menu appears. One of these options will work if your harddrive is not damaged.
Boot from the Windows XP CD and at the first prompt, press "r" for repair. Press 1 when asked to choose windows installation and then enter the admnistrator password. If you don;t have one, just press "enter" and it should show you "c:\windows>"
At this prompt, type the following
THis should take quite sometime but will fix the problem at the end. when you get the c:\windows prompt again, type the word "exit" and your system will reboot and load windows XP normally
Yes, unmountable boot volume usually means you need a new hard drive. However, if you have a windows xp cd, you can boot to the recovery console (press R at the first prompt) and try running a chkdsk /f command. Sometimes that will help. Thanks and good luck! Oh and if you could remember to give this solution a rating of fixya. Thanks!
at startup start tapping the f8 key and log in using safe mode
go to my computer , right click it, select properties, and go to the tab that says hardware, go to eithernet adapter and highlite the new one and hit the delete key, re start the computer
re install the driver for the card see if that clears up the problem.
