Question about E-Machines PC Desktops
Whats happening is when the the computer boots, first stage goes thru CMOS, second stage loads drivers and starts to look for the operating system. And if it does not find the operating system, then it re-cycles.
Here are some possibilities:
1) Go into your BIOS and set CMOS setting to default. Save settings and reboot. See if this makes a difference. If not, move on to next step.
2) Memory Module - If you have more than one memory module, take one out and reboot the pc., Do this one by one until you discover the culprit. If there is no bad memory module, then move on the the next step.
3) Make sure the cable ribbon or harness is properly inserted on both ends of the cable (one end to the hard drive and one end to the mother board). If you dont find any problem, then next step is important.
4) At this point, your hard drive may be going bad or gone bad. You can try to reformat and install everthing back. But if you dont have the installation or recovery cd then you will need furhter help with data recovery.
Hope these steps help and good luck.
