Hi there.
The system files have become corrupt so it won't start properly, the only option left for you to do is recover the system.
If you didn't get any recovery disks with the laptop then you must use the recovery partition.
As the computer starts you can try ALT+F10 or CTRL+F10 during the initial boot cycle - this will prompt the laptop to access the recovery partition on the hard drive.

Good luck

My computer says configure updates and then it automatically turns off


This will be a long process of troubleshooting and may end up of restoring your computer to a factory settings. You can try the steps below:
First is boot up to advance boot options, to do this follow the steps below: -Turn off your computer -After pressing the turn on button start tapping F8 key until you see the Advance Boot Option. -Try choosing Last Known Good Configuration if it fail try Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt, if one is successful use system restore to restore your computer to an earlier date but if it fails you'll need to use your Operating System Disc to use the repair option.
Here's how to access system restore incase you're able to access Last Known Good Configuration, Safemode, Safemode with networking or safemode with command prompt: Windows XP: Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
Windows 7 and Windows Vista: Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If you're on safemode with command prompt: At the command prompt, type %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, and then press ENTER, System Restore window will pop-up then select Restore my computer to an earlier time then select a bold date on the calendar and click Next on the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows configuration, and then restarts the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.
If all the steps above fails you need to use the recover disc or the operating system disc to do a repair on your computer. Revert back in case you need steps for using start-up repair.
Note: If the steps above and start-up repair fail there's no other option but to restore your computer to factory settings.

Try the below steps:

E-machine gets the blue screen that says.....stop 0x0000007E(0xC0000005, 0x8053A593) what does this mean


A registry error or device driver is causing this. Attempt a boot to safemode by tapping f8 after the computer boot logo screen and before the windows logo screen.

if you can't boot to safemode then try the same key sequence but select "last known good configuration". If this does not work, then you will have to repair reinstall the operating system.

if you can get in safemode or last known config, make sure to run a spyware/virus check if you didnt' install any programs, devices or used a registry cleaner like CCleaner
