Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Attempted to upgrade Vista to SP1 on an E-machine, during install, Norton reinstalled, upon rebooting - BSOD so I don't know if SP1 issue or Norton, or both. Using VISTA disk, the bar progresses and then leaves at BSOD. Tried F8 - all options explored with no progress. Only message at any time is the "bootmgr missing" message. Any way to boot to recovery partition? Tired of Black screen

Try booting into safe mode.
If you can, I suggest getting rid of Norton. The drivers are not compatable with vista.
Vista has a ton of issues and many types of softwhere will not run or work.
If you want a good virus software, use the new software from Microsoft.

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and Computer Restarting Constantly


A very common issue, especially with old computers, is that of crashing and frequent restarting of the machine.
A common accompniment to this issue is the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).

The BSOD will tend to occur randomly and will not even let you reinstall the Operating System on the computer.

There are a few things suggertions I would like to share to help overcome this issue.

I suggest that you keep the machine shut down for some time (30 min) and allow it to cool.

Also, open the case and use a Vaccuum Cleaner to blow off the dust on the Motherboard, Power Supply, CPU Fan and other internal components of the CPU.

Try to keep the machine is an Airconditioned Room with the temp set to a relatively cool temperature.

In case airconditioning is not available, you might want to use a table-fan for blowing air into the unit.

These issues are mostly due to blown capacitors on the Motherboard.
The steps mentioned above will allow you to restore your operating system on the machine.
The BSOD and rebooting indicates a hardware error i.e faulty capacitors or perhaps issue with the RAM.

The permanent solution, however, is to replace the faulty capacitors with new ones.

I suggest that you visually inspect the Capacitors on the motherboard.
The blown ones will have a curved, arched top and perhaps a black, powdery, burnt look.



If that is the case, get the capacitors replaced first.512c17f.jpg

BSOD after power failure during check disk-now I cannot reboot from recovery console or disk. How can I uninstall the OS then reinstall OS from eMachines T6524?


You need to enter the BIOS. immediately upon starting the computer start tapping either the F2 or the tab button. Once in the bios, go to boot order and set the cd/dvd drive as the first boot priority, hard drive second. It is ok to leave this permanently, save and close settings which will reboot the system and considering everything goes as planned you should be able to start up from a disk and then repair or replace XP. When replacing XP remember to delete partition and write a new copy. THIS WILL ERASE ALL INFO ALREADY ON THE HARD DRIVE!!!

I wish to install Windows Vista Home Premium. I already have Windows XP. I pay for Norton Internet Security by direct debit through Tiscali and have done so since, 2006. I have run Norton Liveupdate. ...


You will need to cancel your Norton subscription and use one of their products that is suitable for Vista. May I suggest that you purchase Norton Internet security 2009 for a single payment of about 70 dollars.

C2881 wont boot after sp2 installed


Generally when an SP2 installation doesn't take it means that there was some corruption of the SP1 installation. Usually virus related.

Although it is possible, I doubt very highly that replacing hardware will fix this problem. This is a software related issue and should be repaired as such.

You'll need to boot to the XP recovery console and then perform an uninstallation of SP2. Then you'll need to disinfect the SP1 installation (check for winlogon infections!)

Please, do not attempt to physically replace the BIOS ROM. You'll probably brick your motherboard.

If this doesn't solve your errors or you need more information please post back with what BSoD you're getting when the computer starts. And if possible upload the .dmp file from C:\Windows\Minidump to a file hosting service.
