The problem is my emachine laptop does not want to start up it is asking me a boot decives wch l dont have, the model for my emachines is E525, where can l get the boot device?

It is asking you for a bootable drive or device.
Your windows OS is your main bootable device, if it is not booting, you must have a error in your windows installation.
Other bootable devices can be your Windows CD, or a USB drive with some bootable media on it.
Try tapping F8 when you turn your PC on, it will give you the option to boot into safe mode, or may also give you repair / restore options.
Try booting into safe mode and do a system restore

Blue screen error

The most frustrating blue screen computer errors are basically caused by some physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of PC components, or hardware running beyond its limits, device driver conflicts etc.
If you see the blue screen and halts occur in boot process, and also notice some specific error message appear on your screen, this indicates a serious issues most probably due to inappropriate device driver or firmware .Blue screen is really an annoying issue and creates a lot of trouble to the end user.
Follow these steps to fix a Blue Screen in Safe Mode
Once booting start, select "Safe Mode" from the boot menu.
Scan your hard drive by running your antivirus software . If the program locates an infection, move it to your vault or follow the on-screen instructions. After program completion, if a virus was removed, attempt to reboot your computer and see if this clears up the problem. If not, restart your computer in safe mode.
Restore your computer to a previous point. Click on the "Start" button. Select "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and finally "System Restore". Choose a restore point on or before the last day your computer worked without error. Finally Reboot your computer to see if it loads correctly.

Getting a No sync message on monitor ,computer

No sync message could be for 2 reasons.

1. Loose VGA cable
2. Wrong driver installed or configuration made is out of monitor range

For loose cable you can fix it up from both ends, on CPU and on Monitor itself.
For second reason, we just have to delete display driver from Device Manager. Follow below method to delete driver

Start computer in safe mode. To start in safe mode, as soon the system boots up press F8 and select Safe Mode. After you log into the safe mode. Right click the "My Computer" icon on desktop, go to properties,
go to "Hardware" tab, Click on "Device Manager", go to "Display driver" and expland it, select the driver below the expanded "Display Driver" and press delete to remove the driver. Now restart the system and it will automatically adjust the display driver for you.

Will not boot, error message


Im sorry to hear about your luck. Basically this error message is letting you know that one of your important windows system files is corrupt or missing.

Problem is every solution requires you to use a cd. Does the PC have USB drives ?

Windows 2000 pro can't safe mode exit

The system is corrupted, that is the reason why it starts only in safe mode.
Easiest way to proceed is reinstalling Windows 2000 pro as an update installation.
To do this start a Windows installation from Windows (not from dos booting with disk inside).
Do not do new installation, do upgrade installation, it will preserve all your data, and most of your software and settings.
Do a backup of all your data first.
