Usually if your seeing the dash on the upper left corner it means it's still trying to load the Operating system (example: windows XP or Vista or Windows 7) of your computer . If it really stuck on that part, try to do this step

1. You said that you just finish the setup, so we need to know if the setup is completed or successful
2. You need to restart your computer either by pressing reset or the on/off switch
3. Before you get to the e-machine screen you need to press on F5 on your keyboard for 3-5 times
4. You should be getting a screen that will give you options like this

Safemode with networking
Safemode with command prompt

5. You need to choose safemode and usually it will load the page of windows if the setup is completed or successful

6. If it doesnt load then you might need to have it reinstalled because chances are that the setup failed and not all the files we're installed causing your windows not to load completely.

Hope this help you a bit.. Have a great day.

Some of the emachines coming with Recovery image. You need to press F11 key on starting to check whether the image is available or not. If it is there proceed with restore.

Otherwise you need a recovery CD to do this. If you don't have any CD then you could purchase the recovery disk for your emachines from the link below by entering the serial number on your computer:

Checked your RAM chips? Remove them and boot up and see if it will beep. If you have another DVD drive, swap it and try again. The board battery rarely goes, and only change it when it is not keeping the date/time etc, it won't help in outputting video.

Usually you would use the OS installation disk to get into restore mode (be careful, you don't want to accidentally delete everything by reinstalling the OS).

It should still be under warranty!!! So if I were you, and if you need a little hand holding, call Dell Customer support at 1-877-293-1197. Have your model number, serial code (usually somewhere on the bottom of the laptop), and setup disks for that computer handy before you call them.

They may walk you through a few procedures to try first before resorting to restore mode, but just be patient with them.

Hope this help you. Let me know how it turns out.
