You have to reinstall the os xp or vista, if its branded pc the restore cd/dvd should be there and you can use it. if its compatible or assembled one you should purchase original or pirated xp or vista cd/dvd and boot from it to install os

System restart has been paused/pressf8 advance startup nothing happens


Restart your computer
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the delete or F2 key

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart if this fails to fix the problem

During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer

you could select the option start at last known configuration that worked this will tell what file has been corrupted or missing you might be able to work your way through problem if you are unable to find a solution

restart back into safe mode you might need to select your operating system to load into safe mode

click start control panel administration tools computer management in the left panel events + to expand then system you will see all errors in right panel right click select properties this will tell you what has occurred and the time it occurred

you might use the system restore to restore your system to an earlier time
click start all programs accessories system tools you should see your system restore option

hope this helps you

Computer won't turn on it say's \WINDOWS\system32\config\SYSTEM---Windows could not start because the following is missing or corrupt: You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using...


Borrow that CD-ROM from any friend who does have one -- you don't need to have your "original" disk.

Or, telephone eMachines, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" disks.
Probably $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier shipping.

My emachine freezes up at start up


Try starting it in the Safe Mode: Right after the first text appears on the screen, start tapping either F5 or F8 to access the startup menu. It won't have much of a selection; typically safe mode, normal and prompt only. Choose safe mode.
Since you did not give the model number, I don't know if you have Big Fix on your machine or not, most eMachines do. To find it, open the Start Menu, All programs, then look for the name. If there, choose it and look at whatever error logs it has to show you.
If you don't find anything apparent there, click on Start, then All Programs, then Accessories. Look down the list and locate System Tools, then click on System Restore.
Select 'Restore my computer to an earlier time' and then 'Next.' You will be presented with a calendar and the dates in bold will be valid restore points. If you have System Restore tracking disabled (it is enabled by default), well, then consider it a lesson. This is the preferred method of restoration since it only refreshes system files and leaves your personal files untouched. 
You may have to use recovery discs or download the needed installation routines from the eMachines website. Be advised though, if you do a full reinstallation, any work you have not backed up will be gone.
If you don't have any protection against an invasion by malware, at least download and install MicroSoft Defender.  It's free and can give you a fairly decent layer of protection against some common junk.
