Could be a couple of things, usually when you get the BSOD (blue screen of death) there is usually a ram problem, have you noticed your pc getting slow, sometimes the ram sticks break down over a period, try getting hold of a memory tester software and checking the PC, this is usually done through the inital start up before windows is loaded, please ensure though that if you need to get more ram that you use the correct one for your motherboard, buying incorrect ram can cause more problems and is a waste of money, www.crucial.com is good for checking ram in pcs, also you need to make sure that if it says low density you use low density ram, or high density for high density. also make sure that you buy the one with the correct amount of pins.

hope that this helps

My eMachines T3882 with Windows XP just reboots over and over


Sounds like a sick hard drive. When it starts to reboot, press F8 and choose Windows Diagnostic Test. It will show a hard drive failure if one exists. If it finds a hard drive error, the hard drive is junk and needs replacing. Once replaced, you can run your restore/recovery disk to install Windows back to the condition it was in when you bought it.

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

Restore emachine


Your machine has two ways of repair: SYSTEM RESTORE and SYSTEM RECOVERY. System restore is a Windows utility that rolls the machine back to a point where the machine worked before the problem. System recovery is an eMachines tool that puts the machine back the way it was when you first got it. Restore wont delete your data, recovery will and can. If the problem is catastrophic, and youve backed up your data off of the machine, use the recovery option. Your recovery partition (or a recovery disk) is needed to do this, and it involves pressing a key while the computer boots up. Check your documentation for your model of machine.

E-Machines T3120 Keeps Rebooting


Try rebooting in Safe Mode (generally by pressing F8 as it comes up from a cold reboot). This will let you reset the PC to a date previous to when your cousin changed settings. You won't lose any documents or photos, it just puts system settings back to that point in time. Safe mode will look a little different than you're used to but that will be okay when done. After it comes up, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Pick a calendar date that is in bold as this will have restore points for you to choose from. Make sure the radio button is picked that says restore my computer to an earlier time, click okay and let the system do its thing. This will take a few minutes. Let me know if this works for you or if you have any other questions.
