Maddox: The battery is spring loaded inside the little plastic housing. Push on the battery from the open end of the plastic housing until it clears that side of the housing then, flip that end of the battery up to pop it out.

This could be a Bios password problem just see if you can hold down the F8 key when you boot and if you get the boot screen choices

Boot error - requires control alt delete to recover


Bootconfig might be bad for windows not to start. Or could be a hard drive problem. Windows startup repair might work or you might have to reinstall the operating system. If this does not work then possible the hard drive has problems.

Emachine E528 Laptop is saying a disk read error occured push ctrl+alt+delete an it will restart


The error that you are getting indicates that the system is not able to detect the Hard Drive. We would need to confirm if the Hard Drive is detected in the system BIOS or not. For that we would need to turn off the computer. Turn on the computer and start hitting F2 key to reach BIOS. On the First page of BIOS it should show you the Hard Disk Drive with name and Number. If it shows all drives and none or not detected then it means the hard drive is not getting detected by the system. If you can open the Laptop and reach the Hard Disk Drive you can try to re-seat it to see if it gets detected. If it still remains undetected, Its time to replace the Hard Disk Drive.

Please try the above steps and get back for any further assistance or clarification

Cant reboot my laptop can someboby tell me how to do it with out


As a standard reboot? Click start, then turn off computer, then reboot.

If it doesn't work like that hit CTRL ALT DELETE all at the same time and then Click shut down at the top and then Restart as the option.

If you are getting a 146 error, the HDD is failing. Back up your data, as you can then replace the HDD. No amount of tools or SW is going to change the fact that the drive is dying
