Check to see if unit works with other disks. If it works fine then it is definitely a software issue that is preventing playback of your disk.

Install VLC freeware and see if that plays it back.

All the Emachine's I worked with have a Restore Partition .... might try that first.... after the boot screen hit the F8 key and look for an option called Directory Restore Service.... if you still want the Ethernet Controller Driver try a program called Unknown Device Identifier you can find it on download.com it can help you find the manufacturer and model for your devices ...might be a good start

This error comes when the OS system files are corrupted .
You need to re-install OS.

Thanks for using FixYa.

This is not necessarily a problem. The computer will utilize the cpu when it needs to, meaning, you are not putting much of a burden on the cpu if it is only running at 1GHZ. When you start to do more task, run more programs etc, you will see the CPU utilization increase!

I hope this is informative.

Hello sage_morales,

A backup restore cd should have been created when the computer was first installed. But if you don't have the restore cd then this link on the emachines support site may have helpful information:

Restart the computer, when you see the Emachine logo, tap F8
go to safe mode
Once in safe mode, go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools system restore
restore to 1 week previous that you downloaded the malware. The software that you are getting hit with is a virus itself called "Hijack Ware"- it basically holds your system hostage.

Now after that is done, go to a site like Avast! or AVG and install an antivirus (Both of those are free and reputable. I prefer Avast!)

Don't click and don't believe crud like those popups ever again.

I suggest that you clean it first using some soft of air blower, maybe there is something stuck in there. just make sure the computer is not switched on.

One more thing, take the driver out of the the boot sequence from BIOS if the noise happens when the computer starts up.

Also, check with the manufacturer if it is still under warranty. Sometimes if you have used a shatter, it could damage the drive gears.

If it is too old, perhaps you would want to replace it with a new one because maybe there is drive failure that cannot be fixed.

No, it's a software problem, most likely the chipset driver is corrupted. If you're lucky the cause of the corruption hasn't destroyed any other file and in that case you will be able to boot in Safe Mode - in there update all your drivers.
If you fail to load into Safe Mode then the damage is to great - your last hope to avoid a full reinstall and lose everything in the process is to perform a Repair: boot from cd and skip the first Press R for repair and go the setup and after you press F8, use the R for repair and it will check and replace all your system files.
