Answers :

You have two choices:
1) Insert your e-machine system disk and boot from it. It should ask you if you want to install Windows or repair it. Choose R for repair. Then when you get the black screen with white writing, choose your windows installation (usually #1) and then press enter when prompted for a password. When you get the c: prompt, type chkdsk /r
This might fix it.
If not, then try the process again and don't choose "r" but continue through the screen when it asks you to accept the Microsoft agreement by pressing F8. Then on the next screen choose to repair the existing version of Windows. It will reinstall the system files and may actually fix your problem.
