Same as any other system. Insert your Windows CD, go to the recovery console, format. You know you will have to reinstall everything after that.

Check on the power supply and make sure the main power switch is turned on. If it is turned on make sure the plug works by pluggin in a lamp or other simple device that you know works. Also if it is on a power strip make sure you did not turn the strip off. If all these work and there is no power when you hit the front button you might have a bad power supply. If that is the case contack emachine and they offer a warranty repair.

Check the BIOS to see if ACPI is enabled.
Might try looking in event viewer/Application or System log files to see what may be hanging it up.
It may also even be a virus.

This is due to the resolution set on your computer. change your resolution of the desktop from display property to less than 800X600.

I suggest finding the specific drivers that he deleted. Typically, when a computer begins to get slow, either 1 of 3 problems occur. 1. The drivers are insufficiently up to date. 2. There's too much clutter on the hard disk, RAM, and CPU. Lastly, driver files and start up files get deleted. The best way to fix that slow problem is downloading the driver files.

to boot a cd then you must have the bios set to allow it, or tap f12 immediately to intercept boot menu and choose cd. sounds like your drive has a few bad disk sectors.

firstly lets think why a Working pc would no longer BOOT. The boot process then. a pc starts the bios which POST's. this results in ONE BEEP which might be followed by messages(if you get several beeps then they are like morse code long/short and count out an error code). when you get your ONE BEEP the pc is working. when it then HANGS(appears to do nothing) its usually because of either a) the cd drive is duff so disconnect its cables. b) the hard drive is duff so disconnect its cables c) the hard drive hasnt quite died yet but has some very slow sectors and is making the Clackety Clack of the heads recalibrating every few seconds. d) there could be a a gpu card bios glitch and your pc is running but you just have a blank screen. some hints then 1) never start removing parts as that corrupts the CMOS(the battery backed up configuration for your BIOS) so you may need to clear your cmos. 2) never play with the idea of changing ram sticks as people usually end up putting them in any old slot(which may result in a non working pc). make sure a PAIR is fitted in slots 0/2 and a separate matching pair in 1/3 slots not in slots 0/1 which is two half pairs. Other factors. 1) a short circuit. your PSU has built in protection, if the psu fan(inside case of the psu) turns and kicks back and immediately stops you have a short circuit and its cuts the power to avoid a fire/meltdown, which could be caused by high wattage gpu(>60 watts) without its extra power cables fitted or wrongly connected front usb cables or removing a mainboard and fitting it into a new box where the board has its support posts NOT lined up with the holes fro the screws so the post is touching underside of the board circuits. hope some of that helps.

Download a Linux distro to a flash drive or DVD and see how well it runs off that. There's HDD utilities like SuperGrubDisk that can diagnose things.

Unfortunately, without a specific model number for your monitor, this may vary from the manual I am referencing. Just the same, I should say the link should at least have enough similarities to get you out of a scenario mode, and into the custom configurations (that I am assuming you are after). The steps begin on the bottom of page 5. http://global-download.gateway.com/GDFiles/Document/User%20Manual/User%20Manual_Acer_1.0_A_A.zip?acerid=634321354437313817&Step1=MONITOR&Step2=FLAT%20PANEL&Step3=E182HL&OS=ALL&LC=en&BC=EMACHINES&SC=PA_6E If you are using a similar model, clicking on the menu button will bring you in the OSD menu where you can customize the brightness, contrast, etc. Any changes will become a "custom" mode that will effectively take you out of anyone of the scenario modes. I have seen monitors that do not allow much customization (if any) outside of the scenario modes. You may find specifics if you search the monitor model number itself. If you post that information in the comments I can help you find info more specific to your display. 26036777-s3re1a4em3ul4plxlhbwewwp-4-0.jpg
