If you have a power outage when your computer was on, it is likely that your hard drive is corrupted. Do you have a boot disc? Like a windows install disc?

Are you able to tap the F8 Key when booting the computer, can you select the option "repair your computer" Log into that and do a system restore to an earlier time.

I can tap the F8 button and it comes to the screen where you have safe, safe mode with networking, etc. I have hit every command but when I do "disable automatic restart on system failure, it takes me to a blue screen that says" UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
STOP: 0X000000ED (OX851F6900, OXC000006, 0X00000000, 0X00000000

CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS PROBLEM, MY COMPUTER IS A EMACHINES THAT RUNS ON WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION

Sorry, I spaced on the last post, you have XP not Win7, I was looking at your Specs. An unmountable boot volume is just that, A corrupted boot volume. You will need to download the windows recovery console and burn it to a cd.

download imgburn to burn it

You will have to boot to the disc and run a check disk to repair any corruption.

Once in the console you will type

chkdsk C: /r

You will have to actually boot from the disc that you made, your computer is not set to boot from the cd drive first. "this is where I wish I knew what computer your have" but anyway, you will have to bring up your boot manager or log into your BIOS and change the boot order.

Most computers, you tap F12 right after you turn it on, some are F9, or esc.

You need to tap the F10 key to bring up the boot menu on that one.

Exact problem a friend of mine just had- I highly suggest a GOOD virus scan as that was likely the cause of your problem to begin with.
