(Just for knowledge) My wifes emachine w3052 would not boot one morning it just let a stringer of muti-? disk lines one on top of the other signifying it had a problem. I tried the recovery, no good I removed the hard drive and replaced it with another one which eliminated the scrolling multi message but it wouldn't boot past the e boot screen with the f2 f12 options. I removed the connections to the rom drive and every other external piece except the power to the mother board and found it would boot again. after reconnecting each item individually I found the digital media reader was the problem and left it disconnected I had to re-installed windows xp but was happy to get the computer up and running.
