Hi!
we'll do some basic troubleshooting here!
okay, try to relax dont panic stay calm and stay focus we'll do it step by step.
1. open your CPU (be sure to unplug it and loose it from any power connections)
2. check the wirings of your harddisk, see to it that its not loosen, just press firmly to be sure its intacted
3. just let it open, put on all the connections (keyboard, mouse monitor) and then the AC supply
4. turn it on, while its booting, press del key to enter CMOS setup
5. configure your CMOS. If your hard disk is in SATA connection you have to enable it but if its ATA then run the automatic HDD detections, if your HDD is detected then save and exit.

thats it!

Emachine EL1852 keep on restarting


Hi,
Does it load operating system fully before restarting?If it does,run a full scan of the drive with an updated anti-virus.
If not,do a reboot[enslave] of your hard disk from another computer.This is how to:-
Remove the hard disk from your machine.
Disconnect CD/DVD ROM from machine 2 and connect your hard drive.
Start the machine.'You're trying to run Unix' alert comes on, press f1[ save changes].
A disk check operation starts.This repairs the operating system on your hard disk.
After successful loading operating system of machine2,turn it off and remove your drive.
Fix it on your machine and start it.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

I think BIOS does not having a problem only the hard drive or data corruption takes place on your drive. Use your unit's repair system. Or using installer cd to repair the damage.

Since you can boot to Knoppix try to view the hard drive contents. If it is readable then data corruption is a strong possibility. In Knoppix 5.1 drive letter is HDA1 I think for the first drive partition.

Sounds like a harddisk failure unfortunately. You might want to boot your original OS disc and perform a repair (non-destructive), this may either confirm an HD crash or fix the problem.

Emachine T1100 Emachine window then no system window


It sounds like the hard drive has been wiped or is dead or not connected. Check the power and control cables to the hard drive. Check drive with a maintenance diskette or CD. Replace drive if bad. If wiped or replaced, you need to re-install an operating system, such as MS Windows-XP, or Ubuntu (a free, downloadable, Debian GNU/Linux based operating system with a Windows-like user interface).

Blue screen


A blue screen means operating system error. Your operating system will have to be either repaired or reinstalled using your recovery disc or operating system disc. A blue screen can also occur with a hard drive failure/crash. It's about 50/50 between system error and hard drive failure. If you have any issues or problems during or after the repair/reload of the operating system, then it's the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.
