Emachines T1840, Computer will not get past start screen

When i power up my computer, the windows xp statup screen comes up, then the computer shuts down before anyother thing happens. I have tried running the recovery disk multiple times. Won't even let it boot in safe mode? Funny thing is that power is still on to the DVD burner and the hard drive still spins, but the computer is shutdown. I have to remove the plug from the back so I can try to restat the compuer only to have it do the same thing over and over again. will not get past the startup screen. tried the windows XP boot disk that i downloaded off another computer but that didnt work either the system will not read the A: drive only the cd drive can be read! Was running norton with everything up to date, what could have happened? Very frustrating ready to throw it at a wall! Thaks for any suggestions Tim

Cant reboot after failed Windows 10 update. Tried to restart with Gateway Recovery Mgt.program.


Try this:

Start the computer. As soon as the "Starting Windows" screen comes up (not the Gateway/eMachines screen), hold down the Power Button to shut off the computer. This might force the computer to go in to Windows recovery mode when you restart. Now, turn on the computer, and it should go to a "Windows Diagnostics and Recovery" page. Choose Diagnose the Problem or whatever it says, follow the instructions.

Good luck.

I can't open windows pc emahine t1840


If your computer does not respond when pushing the power button you may need to have your computer checked out by a computer repair shop.

Possible causes for this issues include but are not limited to.

1. broken or bad power switch
2. Bad power supply
3. Dead or dying motherboard

All these issues can be replaced / fixed. However microsoft no longer supports windows XP and soon most software may fail to work as well. It may be a good time to look at a new computer, most places offer the option of transferring over old data such as images and documents as well.

Computer begins to start up and then turns off after windows xp is displayed. Reformatted drive installed windows 2000, same thing happens


Hi,

The issue that you experience might be problem of your power supply please change the location or check the power supply of computer. If you shut down your Windows XP-based computer, your computer may restart instead of shutting down. The computer may also restart unexpectedly while you are using the computer to perform certain tasks. An error message may appear on a blue screen when the computer restarts.

For more information, please click the link below;

Moreover, check the motherboard, CMOS battery or SMPS, as that might be one of the reason. Any of such device not functioning properly may cause computer restarts automatically.

Windows xp will not install


If you don't see the message on start up "Press any key to boot from cd" Then you need to change the boot order.

Start the PC and hit delete a number of times. This will take you into the bios screen. (Set up screen)

You will have a tab called "Boot Priority" or "Boot order". Make sure that CD/DVD drive has 1st priority. Save & exit & your done. Upon restart if you have a disc in the drive you will get the option to press any key to boot from CD/DVD. By default, most motherboards are set to boot from floppy & then Hard drive so in most cases you will need to enter setup & change the boot order.

Print screen key on computer.


On a windows computer by hitting print screen you are only copying an image of your computer screen to your clipboard you then have to paste it into an imaging program and save it. For example ... hit the print screen button on your keyboard -> go to start -> programs -> accessories -> paint -> then click the edit menu and click paste you should then see the screen shot of you computer in the paint window you then can go to file -> save and save the image somewhere on your computer.

EMachines PC that has not yet been thrown out the window, but....


If this computer came with XP Home, and you don't have a disc, then they would have put the restore files in a separate partition on the hard drive. Do you have the manual for the pc? It's possible to recover your system without losing everything. What happened when you used the recovery disks and XP Pro?

Emachines 2792


pull the power plug as soon as the emacines logo comes on
and if that doesn't work pull out the power as soon as the first windows logo screen comes on. it should then come on and give you the option to start in safe mode or regular mode, choose safe mode then after it comes on in safe mode restart the cpu
then it should come on in regular mode i don't know why it works for my emachines cpu but it does . i'm looking at downloading a error fixing program because i'm doing this almost when ever i turn off my cpu hope this helps if not reformat your hard drive andput windows on again it worked last time i had this problem.

Want shut down


Click Start, then turn off computer, and make sure that your computer is not set to standby or hibernate. This works if you are running Windows XP or Windows 2000. Hope this helps!
