Your trying to reinstall Windows XP from cd on your emahcine computer and from what I understand part of the way through the installation of XP you recieve a blue screen? Am I correct?
If so then their can be a couple of things wrong here.
One your cd drive is not reading the cd correctly try cleaning the lense on your cd drive or change the drive and use a different drive. Second your Windows XP cd is bad, screatched or smudged. Try cleaning your cd or make a copy of it on a friends machine and use the new one. If you tried all of these and you are still getting the blue screen repost for more help.

Thanks

How do i fix ntldr is compressed on emachine press ctrl alt del to restart I stuck in this loop when I try to boot my emachine


Your Windows installation has become currupted. You may have success if you perform a Windows Repair. Alternatively you will have to format and reinstall Windows.
Obviously it would be best to perform the Windows repair, you will need to Windows installation CD.

Follow these steps to Repair Windows:
You will set your CD drive as the primary/first boot device in the BIOS.
Then insert your Microsoft Windows CD into the CD drive.
Press any key when prompted to book from CD.
The CD should execute and start up.
Now when the Blue screen appears press Enter to install Windows.
Press F8 to accept the Terms.

Now here is the Important Part:
At this blue screen you will need to press the R key to repair the selected Windows Installation.

It will look as though Windows is installing for the first time, but it is keeping all of your information.

You may want to contact a computer technician to back-up your data that you may need in case the repair is unsuccessful.

Please be sure to rate this session.

Take care!

E- computer turn on then the screen says it was shut off improperly. say click to restart or wait.....did this it ran through its process and went to screen with no signal. ran it again under boot and...


looks like it's stuck in a startup loop, can you boot from a windows cd into repair console (press R to repair with xp, choose repair my computer with vista or 7) ?

if so, type the command fixboot and after that fixmbr, if it still doen't work, try the chkdsk /F /R
command. if that doesn't work, try booting in hirens boot cd (download v13 and burn it to a cd rom) if still no success, you need to reinstall windows, if that doesn't work, replace the harddisk and reinstall.

When i turn the computer on it says windows root 32 is corrupt or missing please reinstall but i cant get it to reinstall it the install menu does not pop up


You need to re-install it using your disc not when your on Windows enable for it to install. Here are the steps to install Windows back in your system.

  1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

    Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
  2. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
  3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
  4. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
  5. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows .
  6. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows Setup.

EMachines ET1810-01 trying to install xp pro on clean hd, cmos does not show hard drive and xp says there is no hd. it is connected. how do i get it to find the hd?


You need to format your hard drive. Set your boot device to cdrom in your bios. Boot using xp cd.DO a reinstall of windows and it should give you the option to format or delete partitions on your hard drive. if that doesnt work try putting the hard drive in another computer to see if it works. Or you can buy a hard drive enclosure that allows you to use your hard drive as an external device.

Rebuilding emachine - windows 98SE


A C100 error is a registry error. I suggest that U format the drive and reinstall the 98SE. There are programs (bought) available that may fix this problem, but another perferred choice would be to purchase a XP operating system. Boot up on the XP cd and replace the 98SE with the XP. It's better, faster, prettier and more reliable.
