Contact eMachines and see if they will sell you a copy of the original setup disk. If they won't buy a OEM copy of XP with a new COA and install that. Ralph

I've come across a number of 2220 boards and many Dell boards that were populated with defective Rubycon electrolytic caps. Recapped 16 such boards already and now they work just fine.

Look at the motherboard very closely with a flashlight and see if any of the caps are swollen on the top where that "X" is cut into the top. Some may pop out the bottom. If any look like that then I suspect the board is defective.

The 1800 ufd 6.3 vdc caps are notoriously suspect. They were counterfeits as well as other values on the board.

great advise and excellent repair, but the repair on this particular one was strictly software related.

You can attempt to do a system recovery (it will reset the computer to factory specs) from the boot menu. Here is a link to a website that will give you step by step instructions. I hope this helps.

If you have access to another PC with a CD/DVD burner download a copy of the Ultimate Bootdisk and copy the ISO file to a CD. Botup from that CD and use one of the HD diagnostics to test the HD first to be sure the HD isn't fried before you invest in the oem or the system dsiks from emachines.

I got my late Mom-in-Law's "e" computer with a startup issue. The caps are fine, and my Linux live disks are working in it fine. The Ultimate Bootdisk mentioned above would have the same effect, with the advantage of having the diagnostic tools readily available.
