Specs: Windows XP
My emachine computer will turn on but comes up with a screen saying that a fault occured and that it recommends to restart my computer in safe mode, but gives the option to start normally or start with last working configuration. no matter what i select i just repeats this cycle and i cannot get the loop to stop. any help would be great thanks

Looks like a corrupted OS. Start salvaging file already because you need to Format your computer.

You don't need to reformat. If you have the OS CD, you can run a Windows Repair.

Well he is right maybe you can run a windows repair. But if that didn't work try my advice as a last option.

HI

Its not so much the HDD but the os its self.

Its getting as far as starting it up but then it has a hissy fit and turns off!!.

You might be able to press an F key and boot it in to recovery mode if this is an option.

If this isnt you can reinstall your OS via dcd/dvd and it should side swipe your original OS into a foder of its own after install where you can access your old files and transfer tem to yur new OS.

"Well he is right maybe you can run a windows repair." That would be "She" not "he."

You'll have to contact e-machines and obtain a Reinstallation/Recovery CD. Then run the Windows Repair after booting to the disk.
