Emachine loop again

HI, i have the same problem as someone else that you posted a reply to below. Your solution is their recover disc for their Emachine, but I don't have it. Any other suggestions?

I continue to get this error message (as if it is in a loop, and can’t get out.)

Windows didn’t start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. [nope]

"If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files or folders, choose “Last Known Good Configuration” to revert to your most recent settings that worked.

"If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure, or a Power, or a Reset button being pressed, or if you aren’t sure what caused the problem, choose “Start Windows Normally.”


Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration
Start Windows Normally

Okay. Regardless which option I choose above, it loops, and returns to this page.

    While I was trying to perform system restore, the power was knocked out and my computer shut down and will not let me back in. I have tried using F10 , F3, F8 and so on... and I still can not even get it to start in Safe Mode. My computer keeps going in and out. How can I get my computer to start up normally again , as well as being able to get back on the internet? Thank You.

Try first of all 'Last good configuration'
If still no go consider what it is you have done latly in termso of installing new software or a new hardware device.
Remove the most recent.
Finally in Safe Mode go to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and reset the machine to a time before the problem started.

if you have puchased computer with disc recover then
u can go to program files and u can find the application there and make recovery disc
every vendor has different method of recovery discs.

I"m trying to hook up this Emachine and im having proble4ms connecting cdrom floppy hardrive


An external drive would have a cable you connect to the back of your tower. An internal would not have this but would connect directly to your motherboard on the inside of your PC Tower.

Based on your follow up question it appears you want to connect to an inside pin out connection point. Is this right? And if so, what type of cable do you have that need to connect? Is it thin and round or flat and wide?

Thank you for your patience. One of use will be able to help you further once you post this information. Sorry, but we actually need to konw this in order to solve your problem.

Emachine failure. no recovery disc.

just go to and purchase an OEM copy of Windows XP for 99 bucks. thats your best bet. Or you may have a recovery partition on that desktop...if you press f11 when you turn it on it may let you recover from that. good luck

Engine missing

Hi again,

Appreciate the "Ask Me". With your indulgence, I would also be posting this reply in your original post here.

The fuel pump is inside the fuel tank as shown in diagram below.
Vacuum leak could of course cause poor performance on take off on engine speed below 3000RPM. Another indicator of a vacuum leak is slight above normal idling with the exhaust fumes hurting to the eyes.

Need large disc support for old emachine, flash bios? or try restore cds?

flashing a bios, can render your machine/motherboard useless.
You should always ensure any bios download is from a trusted source. if you experience a power failure, or an incomplete bios file. your computers as good as dead.
Windows 95/98 only supports disk drives to a certain capacity. if you updated to windows 2000/ME/XP your problems may be solved. I,d certainly try that first.
Bios flashing Last resort, even after finding a reliable bios update. also ensure the bios file is 256mb-512mb or equivalent. as this is standard bios file size.
Finally check that your hard-drive does not have a jumper ( Small white/black ) plastic block restricting the drives registered size.
When you install windows XP, it will ask you if you wish to enable LBA ( large block Allocation ) Select Y ( yes )
