Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
Posted on Oct 27, 2014
Testimonial: "thanks for the assistance ... I cannot boot anything up ... seems like I am stuck in safe mode ... I cannot do anything or type anything. Complete black screen and a movable mouse pointer. no command prompts nothing."
SOURCE: eMachine T3120 keeps rebooting
The first time that you run the XP install, when the computer boots you will see "press any key to boot from cd". Do that, let Windows load it's files, etc., then it reboots by itself. When that happens and the computer is starting back up DO NOT respond to the "press any key to boot from cd". Just let it go and Windows will continue by itself. You are not the first or the last to have that problem.
If this does not solve you problem, please do not rate this post until other solutions have been explored, as hardware issues can cause the same problem(s), but try this first.
If you have the wrong disk, there isn't much recourse other than buying a new disk :-(

You need to repair your windows xp installation.
Insert the xp install cd and power off - then power on your pc.
If the screen says "press any key to boot from cd" then do that.
It takes a while until you get to choose options.
Choose the repair previous installation option by pressing the R key when prompted.
Follow the instructions on the screen and you should be fine.

Before windows loads press F8 on the keyboard to get an advanced menu.
choose the option that says disable automatic restart on error and see what error you get.
Also try the Safe Mode option.
That click sounds like the harddrive is failing.
