Question about E-Machines emachines (emachinees) CD-ROM Drive
EMac won't boot. Grey Screen with Grey Apple and little clock-like icon moving around and around and around forever. Tried to boot from external CD Drive using "Tech Tools" Disc: Disc spun up but no boot. Using OX 10.3.8 I believe.
It sounds like your hard drive is going out. Most discs that come with Apple machines are machine specific, which means just any Apple disc wouldn't install on the eMac. Try and burn a free linux disk, I suggest Ubuntu, and see if it will boot with this. If the same thing happens, then you will need to replace the hard drive.

Based upon your symptoms I believe the hard drive and the battery both need to be replaced.
