This issue might be due to two reasons... Hardware or software..
1.Try running a hardware diagnostics on the computer...
You can press and hold the Fn key and then push the turn on key that will run the hardware diagnostics. If it shows any error codes then its a problem with hardware parts...
The list of error codes and the fix for it can be found in the following link...

If the diagnostic passes then you may need to reinstall the OS..
Dell has a default partition on the computer and you can install with the same..
If you have windows vista on the computer then tap F8 when the computer turns on and then you will be able to see the advanced boot options.. Select repair my computer.. In the repair my computer screen select the dell factory image restore...
Your computer will go through the installation and it will be up and running...
If you have windows Xp then you have to turn on the computer and when the dell logo appears you have to simultaneously press control and the F11key.. You will be able to reinstall the OS in this way..

Sounds like your MBR is missing. In the top left corner? Like a blinking cursor? If so it's looking for a DVD/CD to boot from. Try to unplug the machine, wait 30 seconds or so, plug in Try to reboot. If that fails, Do a system restore/recovery at boot using F key. OR ,load Repair disk and reboot from DVD/CD rom.

Hi,

Some of the emachines coming with Recovery image. You need to press F11 key on starting to check whether the image is available or not. If it is there proceed with restore.

Otherwise you need a recovery CD to do this. If you don't have any CD then you could purchase the recovery disk for your emachines from the link below by entering the serial number on your computer:

To start the systemrecovery:

If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available orfails, recovery of the Operating System will need to be from Recovery Media. Ifyou do not have a set of Recovery Media, you may purchase the set onlinefrom the manufacturer. Note: If your computer does not havean internal optical disc drive, an external optical disc drive will be requiredin order to recover the Operating System using Recovery Media.

  3. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the disc labeled System CD.

Sounds like you might have a missing boot manager; but without a restore disc, there is no easy way to fix this. I would download Ubuntu, a live OS, burn to a CD, insert it into the laptop, and boot into it. Then, you should be able to recover your files by dragging them to an external drive. If there are no files; its also possible the drive failed, and the data is lost.
Either way, ensure that there is currently no CD or external harddrive connect while booting, which can sometimes cause those symptoms.

Are you getting the Acer logo on start up? If so you might have a software issue on the hard drive, or the hard drive itself is defective. I suggest using your recovery disc to re-install windows and drivers providing you have them.
