    Hmm...this could be a number of things... Do you even hear the hard drive boot, is the fan in the computer running? You don't see anything? No insignia splash screen? Are you able to use the recovery disk again?

The fact that you don't see the insignia splash screen tells me it's not looking good for your computer.

- Have you tried another working monitor with your computer? It could be your monitor died.

- Where is your monitor plugged in on your computer? To the mainboard or a graphics card? It could by your onboard graphics or graphics card has died. Try switching, if possible.

- Have you tried reseting your BIOS? You'll need to open your computer case and look for 3 small metal pins with a connector connecting to two of those pins (it should be on the lower-right hand of the motherboard when you open your case). However, depending on your computer ability, I would generally hold this off.

Unfortunately, without actually being there and without the proper equipment, there's not much I can do. If none of the above helps, then you'll need to open your computer case, and do some equipment checks, however this is only for people who have built computers before and know what they're doing. If you can get a friend thats knowledgeable in building computers to take a look at your computer, then definitely go that route.

All I can do is direct you to the product specifications of your motherboard (the D400a has a D845GVSR motherboard)

Click "Manual" under System resources and download your language version of choice. Good luck.

    I meant D300a, but this also applied to D400a too.

It is possible for the Windows operating system on your eMachines computer to have a critical failure. If the operating system on your eMachines computer is failing, you can use your recovery discs to restore your computer. Recovery discs come with your purchase of an eMachine, and contain your operating system and all your basic drivers. You can recover your eMachines W series in about an hour.

Turn off your computer and press "F8" to enter the BIOS menu. Tab over to the "Boot Sequence" or "Boot Order" menu. Move your optical drive to the top of the list. Press "F11" to exit and save changes. Insert your recovery disc into your optical drive, then restart your computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Select the "Full Recovery" option from your recovery disc menu. Allow the recovery procedure to complete. Hope this helps.

It looks like you'll have to either return it or perform a default factory recovery. These instructions are from their site but proceed knowing that this will erase any data that is stored on the primary partition (meaning if you have anything on it, it's gone...). Esentially it resets it to a point as if you just picked it up in the store (which you did.. :( )


How can I restore my computer with the backup discs I created?
With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    If you have a recovery disk:

    With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    1. Ensure that the computer is completely shutdown, then turn on the computer.
    2. When the eMachines splash screen appears, tap the Alt and F10 keys simultaneously. A screen stating "Starting eMachines eRecovery" should appear.
    3. From the recovery options, choose Restore system from CD/DVD.
    4. Insert either the first Recovery or Backup disc that you created.
    5. From the on-screen options, choose a backup.
    6. Click OK and the installation will begin.
    7. Change the disc as necessary when prompted.


      If you do not have a recovery disk:

    8. Restart the computer.
    9. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
    10. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
    11. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

I can start it up fine, but when i log in,it shows my backround, then the taskbar shows up, finally the programs show up, then the whole screen goes only to the backround. and that same thing happens


Startup PC, press F8 at instant of turn on... choose Safe Mode. when you are asked if you want safe desktop or system restore choose restore, when you get to the restore menu, choose a date BEFORE you had problems there may only be one or two to choose from. just follow the instructions and you should be back to working with all that behind you.

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

Screen shows at quick start that pri prog was not closed correctly.Can import vidio but will not play back or make disc


There is a corrupt file that was partially imported.

You need to flush the program cache.

Go to System Restore Point and see if you can go back to the day before this problem happened.

Now, on a separate disk backup any data you have saved just before this install point.

Restore to the old desktop state. This often solves the problem but will potentially erase all data up to that date.
