Try resetting BIOS
On the motherboard will be written clear cmos or bios this will be a small 2 or 3 pin connector
2 pin remove the jumper which is only on one pin and fit it over both for 15 or 20 seconds remove jumper fit back over 1 pin reboot all things being equal your computer should start

3 pin remove jumper from pins noting which pins it is on fit jumper over middle pin and the one it was not on before leave for 15 or 20 seconds replace jumper over original pins and reboot

I wanted to reinstall windows i put my emachine disk in and the next thing my computer woulnt start up at all and it says registry files are missing or corrept

Boot the computer and press the key or key sequence that allows you to enter the BIOS configuration utility. Explore the tabs to find the BOOT order. It should be under the TAB called BOOT.
Change the boot order so that the computer boots from the CD-Drive before any other drive. Usually you select the drive and press the UP arrow to move the entry Up. Save the changes.
Open the CD-drive and insert the Windows Installation disk. Reboot.
The computer should reboot from the Cd-Drive and invite you to install the OS. Follow instructions.

How do i access recovery mode on eMachines W3052

Not sure that this is what you need, but should work. If you have Windows OS, try pressing F8 when booting. A menu will be given on the screen. Will have to choose SAFE MODE and when windows loads go to START MENU-PROGRAMS-ACCESSORIES-SYSTEM TOOLS and choose SYSTEM RESTORE

Emachines W3052 Gets stuck on logo screen when starting up.

My computer does a similar thing, the issue with mine is the mother board which requires everything to be at a certain temperature. Let it run on the start screen for a couple minutes and hit the reset button. If it doesn't boot up you're going to have to get more involved with your PC. Turn off the power, unplug the cord from your power supply, open the case, look for the battery and the JP8 (CLRTC) jumper. Move the jumper from pins 1-2 over to 2-3, wait 30 seconds, and move the jumper back. Close the case, plug in the power cord, turn on your machine, and boot it up. If it still fails to boot check that all cables are securely attached (inside and out), check that the RAM is securely seated, and check the CMOS battery to be sure it is not dead. Beyond this you're looking at a component failure and should contact a repair tech.

P.S. if you feel up to it and can't wait for service, pull the hard drive out of the first computer and use it in a different computer. Be sure to unplug the hard drive from the second computer.

Bike will not idle

Remove and clean the carb. Reassemble then adjust the pilot screw. This screw is on the bottom outside of the carb centered L & R and forward of the main jet. The screw is nearly recessed in the carb. Turn the screw out 1/2 turn to richen the mixture if the cleaning alone doesn't do the trick. Also, move the clip on the jet needle down one notch for better low speed response. Reset the idle speed as needed.

Computer bios seting

Try restarting the computer. As soon as it shuts down start tapping the "Del" key continuously. It has to be before the beep if you get a beep, and before any boot up screen appears.
If this doesn't work try in the same manner tapping F2,F8 or F12.
Try going on the web to Emachine site and do a search for that question.

1333 FSB processor only runs with fsb set to 1066 in bios

RIArchangel, you're board is not able to run 1333fsb; it can only run at 1066fsb. Though setting the bios to auto should not cause the system to lock up, unless you are over-clocking other settings in the system bios.
Changing you're memory to the faster dual channel 667 will increase the systems over all performance but it will not change the fact that the board can only run at 1066fsb.
If you have the time, take a read over this link. 1333fsb over 1066fsb.
Feeling spunky? You can test you're CPU with this free software. Scroll down a bit until you see, CPU Stability Test,7146-order,1-page,1-c,alldownloads/description.html

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
