Hi,

The message "can,t read disk" is indicative of a defective hard drive in the eMachine. In most instances, this refers to a hardware problem and can only be corrected by replacing the defective hard drive and re-installing the Operating System as well as all other software/applications. This can be verified by entering the CMOS/BIOS set-up and trying to manually detect the HD. If it even manually detecting and the HD will not show up, then the defect has been confirmed.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My dell laptop keeps going back and forth from the loading logo screen to black screen


You might like to Power it off completely by removing the Battery for a few seconds.
If that doesn't help, try booting from your Win7 Installation Disk.

Hi,

It appears that the computer is infected with virus and may need full system recovery. You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key
& keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on
the computer.

You can also create a set to Recovery disk from the recovery partition, to do so
Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Click Create Factory Default Disk, if you receive any error code or unable to burn the disk, please contact Acer Technical
support at 1 800 816 2237 and order for an Recovery Disk.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha

After is finished POST its just sits on a black


The problem seems to be that you have lost some drivers.Put your windows disk in,and reboot from the disk (CD drive((tap) delet,during the boot up process.You'll get a screen asking to slect your boot prioritity set to the Cd then windows will load all the drivers.You'll next get a window asking if you want to install.DO NOT INSTALL,look to the left side bottom,you'll see a repair botton click that.This process can take awhile,so to make it go a bit faster,unplug as much of any add ons you have ie.printer/flash drive or webcam.This should help,just take your time and read befor you click.After windows starts and your logged on remove the CD,try rebooting the system,if it starts with no problems,create a repair disk asap you could also create a boot disk so you don't have a problem like this again.I can help you with this I'd just need to know what operiting system you have.good luck

My computer will not reboot


this will either relate to a hard disk fault or a corrupt driver or registry file, if you cannot get into safe mode, or last known good configuration, you may have to run a windows repair using your XP cd
