Question about E-Machines eMachines T3830 PC Desktop
My old hard drive on my emachine fried, due to electrical storm, so i went and bought a new western digital hard drive and took the old one out of it and installed the new one. it's an 80 gb hd western digital. the computer won't boot to nothing but bios. i have the emachine recovery cd and operating system on the cd too. it won't boot into the boot method to install windows,, it just keeps going into the bios. when i exit the bios, it say turn off power and reinstall the jumper in normal mode.
I hit the r key when it boots up,, and sometimes it will say mouse not detected. and sometimes it will just boot into bios. what can i do to fix this problem.? it's an emachine T3830
A computer cannot boot straight to the bios, unless under 2 circumstances. First, the jumper on your motherboard is not set into the right location. (If you never mess around inside of your computer, this shouldn't be an issue...) The only other way a computer can boot itself directly into bios, is if your keyboard is going out or has a sticky key. Unplug the keyboard when you boot, if this does not solve the problem, it sounds like you have a serious hardware failure.

Go inside to your BIOS menu then set the BOOT sequence to CD as the first boot so when your PC with the operating system installation disk inside it will load the installation wizard.
Good luck hope that helps........

Well your jumper is probably set to boot right to bios. you have to go into your comp and move the jumper to its origional location.
