Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
A simple and effective task (well most of the time) is to reseat components on the motherboard. This can include unplugging the components, including but not limited to:
Hard Drive and Optical Drive Cables
AGP / PCI / PCI-E add in cards
Note - Never mess with the processor unless you feel qualified to do so.
If after reseating all the components, the computer still does not boot, try setting in your BIOS to start up from the CDROM and insert your recovery disc into the drive and see if the recovery detects the drive. If it does, its most likely the boot header in the file system has gone kaput. You could attempt a re-installation of Windows by choosing the repair option, however, this is a last resort thing, and if you cannot do this either, then you might be in the market for a new computer.
When a new computer is bought, you might want to buy an external USB Powered enclosure for your hard drive so you can plug it into the new tower and recover all of your documents.
I know how the failing computer feeling feels like........ So good luck!
