Hello,

your windows start up file(s) is corrupted, that's what the computer is doing like this. To solve this problem you will have to repair windows by running your windows operating system CD (Win xp/vista). This will help to fix this problem. Also, you won't loose any file and it doesn't take much time.

Get your windows operating system CD, insert it into your computer and allow the first stage of the installation run. After that, you will see an option, to either repair windows or run fresh installation, choose repair and that would be all.

After repairing the system will restart, remove the CD and allow windows boot, this time, everything should be alright.

If you don't have the windows operating system CD for your computer, you can borrow from a friend.

Good luck.

HI! This can be a hard drive and program issue. The hard drive may be faulty which can cause the pc not to respond, if this is the case you will need to replace the hard drive. Regarding the program, I strongly suggest that you reinstall a fresh copy of windows, this issues happen when your program has missing or corrupted files. Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya!

Dvd code 10


Check the cord connection between the dvd player and the computer. Re boot the computer and then plug the dvd player in. Be sure the dvd player is connected to the power source.
You should "see" it on the computer as an icon if you are displaying the desk top

If not, click on the desk top Windows icon, and then click on Computer when the pop up comes on.
You should see the display of your computer and hard drives
The dvd player icon should show up under "devices with removable storage" there.
Re check the dvd is actually on.
Click on Control Panel and then "Hardware and devices" You will see your printer etc.
If the dvd player doesnt show up, try and open the dvd player to load in a disc. If the tray doesnt open, the player is defective
If it does, then the fault is in the computer "Device Manager"
Go to the computer Device Manager and you will see the device name with a red x against it.

The two possible faults are
1. The driver is missing or damaged
2. The device is defective

If you have the skilset, delete the dvd driver and install it again from the manufacturers (Toshiba?) web site
If you dont, find a geeky friend!

Icons and Start tool bar disappearing every few seconds


Sounds like the explorer.exe process might be restarting. Open Task manager and keep refreshing the processes to see if explorer.exe disappears/re-appears.

My computer wont start up


First try pressing F2 at start up to see if you can get to setup. Also pressing F12 may get you a boot menu. If cd is already set as first boot you may get a chance to boot from a Windows cd. The idea here is to get to a minimal Windows configuration like setup or safe mode (F8) to see if this is a hardware or operating system fault. Two common issues with eMachines are power supply problems where repetitive reboots can actually fry the motherboard or if the PC has a few years use the CMOS battery. Steve Medley
