I turn my emachines EL1200-07w and it has black screen that says starting in safe mode but then just goes black and does nothing else.
hello and good morning.
emachines are old and now owned by acer.com (gateway,etc)
they OWN many old names.
you are running XP right? the last man on earth to do so?
XP is a virus magnet and doomed, it is time to upgrade.
this PC is 2007 made. so is 12 years old, today..
the RTC coin cell battery will be no good now, replace it for $2
then reset BIOS inside BIOS screen " set default"
then test the HDD, to be sure it is ok, if not? then reloading any OS of any kinds is not going to work with any bad HDD.
Last, reload a new OS.
there are the steps. and can be expensive, spent on any PC this old with zero street value. ($0 if broken a it is)

How to fix no boot device on emachines e442 for free
First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.
