My eMachine T5234, approximately 3 years old starts up and shuts down. I keep getting the error message that Windows failed to start. Its asks me to recover or launch Windows normally, in both cases it shuts down. After about the 5th or 6th attempt, Windows will launch. However, if the computer stays on and goes into hibernation or sleep mode. It shuts down again when I move my mouse. What is the problem?

Normally with an Emachine it is the power supply that is failing. Have you opened the case and cleaned all the dust bunnies out of the CPU cooling fins, power suppy Etc.? Another thing to check would be the CMOS battery if the machine was giving you time/clock setting errors.
If you replace the power supply get a good name brand one like an Antec, Corsair or any other highly rated one from NewEgg, as saving $10-$20 on a power supply really is not a savings when it fails!
