Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I am having some trouble with my eMachines desktop computer. The madel is a T4510. The original power supply burnt out so I replaced it and it works fine, but from before, the HDD had some bugs or viruses in it and so I wanted to completely wipe the drive and start over new with a clean install of Windows XP Pro. I have the disk and I ran through the install, and when it reboots itself it automatically goes straight back through the Widows install. It seems like it doesnt recognize that I just installed it. What am I doing wrong?
I think you might have either bad memory or a bad hard drive caused by the bad power supply.
Reseat the memory into a different slot and instead of performing a quick format, select the second option (the long one)
Make sure your bios is not set to only boot from CD. after the first install, I'd access the bios and change boot order to hdd then cdrom (so that you don't get tempted to hit the ANY key when the cd loads) :)
