Blank screen after windows intro screen

Hello, I had an old hard drive and hooked it up to my emachine desk top in the open second spot to do so. It didn't work, so I took out my already working hard drive and put the old drive in its place- didn't work. I put the working one back in and now my computer starts and shows the start up windows screen and then goes to a blank screen forever. I have the back up disc back hope I won't have to lose all my music files. Thanks

Hooking up a Internal Hard drive


You probably need to give more details. If it's a replacement drive, did you reinstall Windows from a CD? Did you copy from the original hd? It's simple enough to remove the two cables from the original drive, physically remove and replace the drive, and hook up the new drive. But then you'd need to boot to a Windows CD in the CD/DVD player to format and install Windows, if that's what you're attempting to do.

There's possibly a recovery partition on the old drive )or a recovery CD). If so, you'd connect the new drive to a second power cable, and data cable (which might not be included in the tower) :

(from http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Desktops/8510406.pdf)

To restore system software from the Recovery discs:
1 Insert the Recovery disc #1 into the CD or DVD drive.
2 Restart the computer, then press and hold
R when prompted to display the restore process options. The
Options menu appears.
3 Select a restore process option:
- Press R to boot from the hard drive recovery partition
or CD. If no recovery partition is found, go to Step 4.
- Press F to format the hard drive and perform a full system
recovery, then go to Step 5.
4 Click a system restore option. For more information, see
"Restoration options" on page 5.
- Non-Destructive System Restore (Recommended)
- Full System Restore (Destructive)
- Full System Restore (with Backup) (Advanced Option)
5 Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the system
software restoration process.

My computer mother board is bad. I need to transfer all my information from the hard drive to a new computer. Is there a way to do this.


Just take the hard drive out of your old computer and hook it up to another computer via a usb port with a device like this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812232002

Then when you have it hooked up to your new computer via the usb port just transfer the files you need from the old computers hard drive to the new computers hard drive in windows explorer.

I have an emachine T5062 desktop. A friend of mine took an old hard drive out of another machine and added it to this machine. Now the desk top won't boot to windows - it keeps rebooting and sounds like...


You need to set the second hard drive up as the "SLAVE". There is a small jumper on the end of the hard drive where the power cable and data cable plug in. There should be a diagram showing where the jumper is placed to make it the SLAVE.
As far as figuring out which is which (MASTER .vs SLAVE), the MASTER is the last drive on the cable.
I hope this makes sense...

Good Luck.

It sounds like the hard drive has been wiped or is dead or not connected. Check the power and control cables to the hard drive. Check drive with a maintenance diskette or CD. Replace drive if bad. If wiped or replaced, you need to re-install an operating system, such as MS Windows-XP, or Ubuntu (a free, downloadable, Debian GNU/Linux based operating system with a Windows-like user interface).

Black screen


Some USB devices seem to cause this problem. I've had it myself. USB devices when hooked up cause the computer to freeze as it hard for USB drivers to be loaded outside of windows. Try updating you windows thru windows update though even updated I still run into the problem sometimes. If updating dosen't work you need to keep the drive unhooked while booting then hook up in windows.
