I have an eMachine T3410. When it boots, a screen

I have an eMachines T3410. When it boots, a screen appears giving me the option to start Windows XP or to start XP setup (the XP setup option is highlighted). If I do not choose Windows XP, the setup option executes and I get the error message "\minit\system32\biosinfo.inf could not be loaded error code 14". If I choose Windows XP, the PC starts normally. Any ideas as to 1)correcting the error and/or 2)not having the screen appear and starting Windows normally?

Can't install windows


If there is a boot menu you may have to load the CD drive from there and the restore disk will load. Check the boot screen when the PC is first turned on and look for restore option and which key to press. It is usually F10 or F11. If all else fails press F8 on start before the first boot screen vanishes and select the prompt option. then load the CD from there after you ID the drive letter.

My emachine ET1831-03 crashed a few months ago. All I can get it to do is display the windows boot manager screen. It says windows failed to start, and gives me status: 0xc000000f NLS data is missing,...


Power off the computer, then restart it. As soon as you see the eMachines logo appear on the monitor screen, press the "left-Alt" and "F10" keys simultaneously. Wait a few seconds for the Windows boot screen to appear, then press the "Enter" key.

Click the "Restore Operating System to Factory Defaults" option after the eRecovery Management window appears. In the Notice window, read the warning that states all information on the drive will be lost, then click the "Next" button.

Click "Next" in the Restore Destination window, then click "OK" in the final confirmation window. The eRecovery Management utility formats your main system drive and reinstalls the original software that shipped with your computer. A progress bar notifies of you of the current progress of the recovery. The recovery utility may prompt you to restart your computer several times during the recovery process. Restart the computer when prompted. The computer reboots automatically after the recovery finishes and launches the Windows First Time Setup. The recovery takes between 10 minutes and one hour depending on which model eMachines computer you own.

Follow the onscreen prompts to customize and personalize the Windows installation on your eMachines computer. Log in to Windows with the username and password you choose during Windows Setup.

When using the restore discs on my emachine w4682, restore freeze


In that case unfortunately, you are probably going to have to get a Windows DVD. Set the laptop to boot off DVD, and reformat and do a complete reinstall.

Wont load passed windows xp screen


Try holding down the "F-8" key when the emachines logo appears, see if you get a prompt for "safe mode". If you can get the system up and running in safe mode, shut it back down from the start menu. That should rewrite the boot sector and may clear the problem.

Windows xp logo will start to load then......


To solve this will require more information from you. The Blue screen is Windows way of telling you that it has a driver issue with a basic component, usually your video card. Did you recently make any hardware changes? If so please let me know what was changed.

When windows first boots, you can repeatedly press the F8 key until you see a menu giving you choices of windows booting. You need to select Safe Mode. Safe mode should allow you to at least boot without a blue screen. The blue screen could also be cause by a virus or other software.

Microsoft has a description of Safe mode here;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222
but here is a quick snippet
To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:
  1. Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.
  2. Select an option when the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, and then press ENTER.
  3. When the Boot menu appears again, and the words "Safe Mode" appear in blue at the bottom, select the installation that you want to start, and then press ENTER.
