I have an E-machine D4362 running windows XP home edition. When I push the power button on the front I get a power light, DVD light and the mother board fan starts. However the case fan does not come on, I get constant beeps from the computer and no display. (the video display works fine on another computer). Will the fact that the case fan is not running cause this trouble or should I look elsewhere.

Re: Emachine Will not boot
Different beeping patterns are codes which indicate what part of the hardware has failed (ram, video card, cpu, ect). the fan failure would not cause beeps, and would not cause the cpu to fail unless already in windows. if you could find out the manufacturer of your motherboard you could check with them about what the paticular pattern of beeps which you are getting mean.

It means that your computer is missing a file that windows xp needs to run boot properly or is missing a program that your home edition xp needs. Repairing the OS or windows xp home edition by means of your xp instalation cd will do the job. Just insert your xp installation disk to your cd/dvd rom and select install windows xp home edition. Then select ( repair ), and so on let it finish repairing . Once your system rebooted, let it run without pressing enter or space bar. Just watch and let your computer do the job. This will probably solve your boot problem. But before doing all of this, please check your IDE or SATA cable and also the power cable that is connected to your hard drive. Try to unplug and plug again to ensure a good connection. If this won't work, you can proceed repairing Your windows xp installation or reinstalling a new xp operating system. Have a nice day and i hope i was in any help to you friend.
Ok it needs to have a file disabled that says " restart on faults."
To get to it. Put the XP disc in the drive with the computer turned off.
Start the computer. It should ask if you want to hit any key to boot off the disc.If so tap any key.
(If it does not ask as above you need to change the way the computer boots.. Turn it off. As it restarts tap the delete key to enter the BIOS. In that window you will see a tab 'boot order" Click the tab and follow the instructions to make the DVD or CD drive the first device to boot from. Then the hard drive 2nd.
the instructions are usually in a littlesquare box bottom right and may be using the - and + keys or page up and page down keys to change the order.
When you get the order correct, escape from the BIOS and SAVE what you have done by clicking on save and exit.
The machine will boot off the disc and offer a repair option. The os you select is 1.
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).
did you hear any beeps from the bios? Try to remove all the peripherals like all the PCI cards, specially the "video card", your ram's,. Once you removed and cleaned all of those, put it back,make sure that theres no loose connections and boot the computer.
try this: 1. right any where in desktop except on start menu 2.go to properties 3. go to desktop tab 4.go to customize desktop 5.now select desktop icons like my computer,my documents etc.. give ok now you will get those icons..
if you want to reinstall the windows means no problem you can reinstall the repair option will come... boot from dvd (make sure by going to bios setup first boot device is cd/dvd device) then you can follow instruction from the set up wizard
