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

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

Err1err3


There are several issues that can cause this err1err3 issue. It could be a bad hard disc (or a bad wire between the drive and the motherboard), an incorrect BIOS setting for the SATA hard drive or a problem with the master boot record (MBR). Make sure that there is no disc in the CD drive and disconnect any external storage devices (flash drive). Your computer may be trying to boot from a non-bootable disc.

To check the BIOS setting, turn off the computer and turn it back on. Press F10 continuously to access the BIOS on an HP computer. Some HP computers use F2 or F6. There should be a splash screen that tells you which to use. (If you see the error again, try this step again. It's easy to not have the key press noticed between the POST and the attempt to boot the computer.) Once in the BIOS, go to the Advanced Settings tab (one to the right) and go down to the SATA1 controller option. (Try AHCI.) Then press F10 to save and exit. (Note this isn't part of the BIOS on all HP machines - it does work for some.) See if there is a Diagnostics tab in the BIOS and try running the hard drive test.

Get an hard drive testing utility (ISO) and burn it to CD on another computer. You can set the first boot location when you go into the BIOS as above. With the bootable CD in the drive, restart the computer. (Some machines let you set the one-time boot location by pressing F12 on start up; as with entering the BIOS, it's easy to miss the timing. Just repeat the attempt.)

If the disc tests as good, you can try to repair the MBR. Use a repair tool or an OS install disc for your version of Vista (Home Premium). Boot from the CD as above. With the install disc, follow the on- screen directions and select the Repair option. You will need to enter the Command line mode. You'll need to enter Bootrec with the correct option. For more information, see the following document: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392 .

If you possibly can, remove the drive from your current computer before trying the repair. Use a USB/IDE/SATA adapter and another computer, see if the data on the disc can be copied to make a back up. This will work if the disc is still good. (It will also indicate if the cable was the problem if the disc failed the diagnostic tests.)

I hope this helps.

System registry problem says its missing a fill from there and it wont reboot my windows vista ultimate disc but the sony vaio laptop comes with windows premium..


If your laptop isn't booting from your Windows Disc, it is not because of corrupt registry. It is because the BIOS settings.

1. Restart your laptop.
2. The screen where the logo of manufacturer is displayed press and hold F10.
In most BIOS it would lead you to the BIOS setup screen.
3. Find anything which sounds similar to Boot Order. (Different BIOS use different names).
4. Select the Optical Media Drive to be the first one to be checked for bootable media.
5. Save the settings and restart.

For very detailed instructions, follow this link.

Hi yancart,

I see that you are having issue booting into windows on your machine and that you are getting black screen and a blinking cursor.

The issue you are experiencing can be a Hard Drive issue not being detected on the machine or possible something else is wrong with the system to be able findo ut we try doind some steps to check the machine.

>First turn the Machine OFF.

>Turn the Machine ON again then Keep on tapping F12 on your system to boot into the Boot Menu, or if it shows on the screen Press F11 Boot Menu then you should press F11 if your system uses F11 but in regular machine F12 is the Boot Menu.

>Once you have the Boot Menu Screen it should give you options from your Hard Drive to the DVD drive on your machine.

> Select you Hard Drive it should be the first on the list highlighted in Blue then press Enter on it to boot into your Hard Drive.

>Check if this will boot into your Hard Drive if it does not then, possible your Hard Drive is nto detected.

>If you can try to reseat your Hard Drvie from the machine just to see if it went loose, then try restarting the system again and see if it will boot into windows.

>If still the system will still not boot into windows then try setting the BIOS to defaults then restart the machine agian if still the issue is the same then most probably your Hard drive may need replacing.

Have T5026 emachine with boot problem


Sounds to me that theres a good chance that the windows files are corrupted. It is possable that its could be hardware, but software is free so start there.

If youve got the recovery disks then put them in and restart. Just attemp a repair of your windows. its worth a shot. you may need to go into your boot setting to boot from disks.

if you havnt got them and you havnt got warrenty them youll have to format the drive and install a fresh copy of windows, and find all the drivers from the emachines after.

1st get all the stuff off the drive that you need/want, take the drive out and connect it to another pc or use some sort of external connection.

then find a copy of windows that matches the licence sticker on the case of your pc. throw the hdd back in and boot the disk, format the drive and install windows.

youll have to get the drivers from
