Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
After a power blink, my EMachines T3882 will only boot up to the EMachines/Windows XP logo. I tried the recovery discs I made when I purchased the computer, but nothing. The manual seemed to imply I should reload the operating system when this happens, but this computer did not come with the XP Home disc. I tried to use my XP Professional disc, but nothing.
Is this computer dead or can it be fixed?
You have to press and hold F1 until it shows that it's loading BIOS. Then check the boot sequence. The CDROM sohuld be first.
Booting into safe mode is another story.
To get into the Windows 2000 / XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.

You have not set the cdrom as first boot device in the bios (press F2 or Del on boot up to get in bios), choose cd as first boot device, save settings and restart the pc with your cd in the drive and then when prompted press enter
