    The tower itself is getting power and I can turn it on. But windows will not start. My..EX "Dumb A#@ boyfriend decided while I was at work the he would become "Mr. Fix anything"..Needless to say he couldn't. Now I can go to DOS but I'm afraid to go into my system
    in fear of doing more harm than he did. He's ..."Miffed" at me for a better word and will not tell me what all he did to screw things up.

    This is very fustrating for me and any input would be greatly appreciated.

Unplug the power cord and hold in the power button for up to one minute to discharge the computer. Make sure the power cord is securely inserted into the pc, plug it back into the wall and try re-booting.
If this doesn't work you may need a new power supply.

Is an emachine boot disk W2828 compatible with compaq presario desk topS4000v series?


When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components;

1) Processor
2) Motherboard chipset
3) BIOS program, version, and date
4) Harddrive
5) Graphics chipset

Instead, I would like to post that you can get the Restoration Disk, for your Compaq.

THE disk.

On the back of the desktop is the Serial Number in a white Service Tag. S/N = Serial Number
Only give this to an authorized HP representative.
(HP bought out Compaq)

In the US the disk is free.
The shipping and handling is not.

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 1-800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Write the Serial Number down to give to the nice representative.

Outside the US,

After you install the Restoration Disk in the computer, and when asked, choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Our work e-machine will boot to just past the bios screen and can even make it to the "unexpected shut down" screen that lets me choose to start in Safe Mode, but then will immediately shut down. I have...

Boot into safe mode. From another computer download malwarebytes free version.
Save to usb it will show up as MBAM.exe
Rename MBAM.exe to winlogon.exe.
Boot to safe mode, send winlogon.exe to desktop (create shortcut)
Install, update, and run full scan. delete everything it finds.
Hope it helps

Comes on, but no picture, seems like its stuck in sleep mode

Perhaps the problem lies not with the computer but with the monitor. Is the boot up screen showing like "Windows is starting up..." or do you simply get no image whatsoever? If your screen is blanked out alltogether the monitor may not be connected properly or may not even be functioning at all. Try looking to see if it's connected properly and seeing if it's even getting power... Otherwise I'd replace the monitor.

Have emachines T6528 graphics problem

if it doesn't boot at all .( this is the reason that you see that message on the screen it means that no video signal came out from the computer ) ..try to change the cable that leads from the pc to the monitor first ...and if the problem its still on have to be something related with the Ram memory or the CPU ....cause these 2 are the only things that can make a system to do not boot at all ...if any other device will not work ..the pc will still boot to bios ..or will still show the devices it finds on start ...even if is not able to succeed with the operating system boot...
so ...either it boots and you can not see anything cause the cable its damaged...( very possible cause this is the case it shows that message ...when the cable its shorted ..or unplugged ) or it doesn't starts at all cause of the memory or CPU ...

Emachines w2828 keeps shutting down reboot/Screen Freeze

I dont thing this is a virus problem but a heat problem. if you dont mind getting inside the box see how clean it is and put your hand on the power box case .. then unplug all the hardware except the mother board then turn the unit on, if it goes on then plug 1 hardware at a time.
