Some bios use F5 for a one time boot sequence. If lucky you'll get this option to choose cd rom as first boot device.
You can remove the Cmos battery for about 3 min. It is the small round watch looking type battery on the motherboard. This may reset all defaults in case of hardware/software conflicts.
If nothing still try a new Hard Drive.
YES I would say you have crashed because it is "just stuck". But this doesn't mean your computer is fried.
Try these things if your want let me know what happens and I'll try to help from there.

There is a recovery option with the xp installation disk that will fix your master boot and boot record on Hard Drive. If your interested let me know!

How do I get past the blue screen? Computer has been stuck on this for weeks. It has been rebooted, restarted, unplugged, still doesn't get past blue screen.


First unplug your machine and plug it back in and turn it on while its booting up you should see a message to press the F2 key to enter the BIOS. press that key, you will only have a couple of seconds to press it. Look for an option called First Boot Device, Boot Sequence, or something similar; press the arrow keys on your keyboard to select this field and then press Enter (You may have to select Advanced Options or another submenu to find it.) In the resulting screen, select CDROM/DVD and then press the Esc key until you return to the main BIOS screen. Follow the onscreen instructions to save your new settings and exit BIOS setup. Insert the installation disc (you need an installation disc of the operating system, if you dont have one you can find one on amazon, but if you needed to buy one you should consider upgrading to windows 7(more like vista) or Windows 8 (not really like vista)) once the disc is inserted restart the computer and follow the on-screen instructions

My Dell Windows 7 laptop won't boot?


Press the Delete key during start up, to enter its bios settings window. At boot sequence selection, select CD ROM as first boot device, Hard disc to second boot device, and deselect all other boot devices. Means, there should be only CD ROM and Hard disc as boot devices, as said above, in sequence. Select 'Save and reboot' at the bios option, the computer will restart with hard disc; provided there is no CD at CD ROM. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

How to restore system


im assuming you have the recovery disk

Restart the computer and press the pause/break key on the keyboard.


This key will slow down the boot process and allow you to see the motherboard BIOS access key that you'll need to press in order to access the motherboard BIOS.


Press the respective motherboard access key and check the motherboard BIOS for a boot sequence.

Change the settings in the boot sequence so the primary boot device or the first boot drive is the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.


Insert the system recovery disc into the disc drive.

Restart the computer and allow it to boot up before doing anything.


A black screen should show up with the words Press any key to boot from disc CD/DVD.
Press a key to have the system boot from the recovery disc.


Allow the system to load.

Follow the on-screen instructions on how to install the rest of the operating system.


There are many different settings for you to choose.
If the operating system is just a little out of whack, you can choose to repair it.


The system recovery disc will contain important drivers and software for all the components connected to the computer system.


If you do not have a system restore disc you can search the Internet for drivers and software that are packaged for your specific eMachines model.


Restore the BIOS to their default settings so the hard drive is primary boot sequence.

This is an optional step.


You can leave the CD-ROM drive as the primary boot drive, but it will slow down the startup process by a few seconds.

hope this helps

1 Remove any floppy disks or bootable CDs, DVDs, USB flash drives or other bootable media from the computer. Attempt to restart the computer again. Proceed if you continue to receive the error.
2 Restart the computer again. Press the key required to enter your BIOS setup. (The monitor usually displays a "Press [key] to access BIOS" right after restarting your computer. Press the key shown on your screen.)
3 Navigate to the "Boot Options" or "Advanced" menu by using the arrow keys. (The precise menu terms will vary according to your computer and BIOS type.)
4 Select the hard disk that contains your operating system (usually C:) as your primary boot device. Select your CD/DVD drive, your floppy drive or another hard disk as your secondary boot device.
5 Save and exit the BIOS. Proceed with the next step if you see the "Non-system disk error" message again.
6 Restart the computer. Return to the BIOS' "Boot Options" screen by following the steps above, then set the "CD/DVD drive" as the primary boot device and the hard disk as the secondary boot device. Save and exit the BIOS.
7 Insert your Windows installation disc. Restart the computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Follow the on-screen prompts to reinstall Windows.
8 Replace your hard disk drive if you cannot install Windows.

If it gives you options to choose from such as Windows XP, NT 2000, etc. then select one and press enter. If not, try reinstalling Windows using the restore disc that came with the computer. Make sure to set your CD drive to boot first from your BIOS setup. To enter the BIOS press F2 at startup. Then select the CD drive and set it to first in the Boot Order list. Restart your computer with the Windows disc in the CD drive and follow the on screen instructions.

Hope this helps, good luck. Don't forget to vote. Thanks :)
