If you have another pc in the house. take the hard drive form the E-machine and set the jumper to slave. and connected as secondary drive on the other machine. backup all of the files and reinstall the OS on the E-machine.

it's more than likely a driver issue, as the computer boots tap the f8 key and you'll presented with a boot menu. load the system in safe mode and see if it loads properly. if it does, uninstall the video drivers (usually the culprit) and then load the drivers from the manufacturer's website. windows update drivers sometimes screw things up more than they help. you can also tap the f8 key at boot and toggle down to 'do not restart on system failure' and restart. when the pc boots and it blue screens again it will stay on the screen and you can get the failure hex code. that will help us diagnose it

Windows will not start up, stuck on the blue screen.


as your title indicates refurbished pc. you might be continuing the windows that came with your pc. My suggestion to get a clear solution. just reinstall windows again. and try to make backup of all the data in the windows drive or else you cannot recover.

Blue screen


Are you getting a splash screen at start-up? If so, go into BIOS and set the CDROM as first boot device. Insert Windows disc into CDROM drive and restart. If it boots from the CD you should have the option to repair or re-install the operating system. If you re-install, you will lose all data on the hard drive. Sometimes taking the coin battery out before you do this can help.

Ihave blue screen after my laptop just shut down


If you didn't get to log in try this.Reboot, tap the F8 key until you get to the advanced start up screen. Click on last known good configuration.
If you logged in it will not work so try to boot in safe mode. (again tap the F8 key on reboot)
The blue screen is a configuration error. Either hardware or software.
Hardware could be bad, (memory, hard drive).
Software could be any thing, (an update, new install).
If you just did a windows update and the blue screen happened I would boot to safe mode and uninstall the update.
Control panel, add/remove programs.
You might need to check the box in the top right to show updates.
Find the latest update and click remove.
