That may be the issue. have you tried going to msconfig to stop the printer from autostarting while rebooting? this usually helps boot your computer faster. you may as well disable other apps there in the startup folder so that your computer will boot faster.

While I was trying to burn a back up recovery disk for my emachine's windows vista, emachine didn't come with one, but a program on it to install one. I was told to use 10 writeable cd's or 2 dvds, i...


The problem here is that when disk burners stopped being $400 each, the quality went way down. What's likely happening is that your burner is sucumbing to an alignment or heat-related issue. My gut feeling tells me that you should do the burn, then wait about an hour (maybe two) and do the second disk so the electronics and mechanical parts have time to cool off.

[rant] The real issue in your case is that eMachine's recovery system is an after-thought. Any well thought-out system would let you select which disk to burn or give you the option to make ISOs so you could burn them on another machine. More importantly, they should just let you do this to an 8GB USB stick and call it a day. I would avoid machine that can't be bothered to give you an easy way to recover their machines, then give you the responsibility of creating the recovery media on sub-par hardware. [/rant]

Anyway, let me know how it works out.

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

An overheated video card will do this when it is under high load, among other problems, like artifacts, lines, delayed and choppy video, etc. Cool your system somehow. Put a small fan by your PC.

Emachines T2385 startup problem


Psu is a Power Supply issue but the black screen with a blinking white line is not.
The blinking white line can mean there is no instructions to tell the Computer to boot up. Which could be possibly the system battery (cmos) or Hard Drive.
I would narrow those 3 things down first.

Emachines desktop


Could be a sign of hard drive trouble or may need to reload the Operating System. Back up your data and do a system recovery with the cds the machine came with. That will erase hard drive and reload Windows. If still takes a long time to load chances are it is a hard drive starting to fail.

Hope this helps!

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


Hi,
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 )
