Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Emachine- will boot up 3-4 times before computer

\015 Emachine- will boot up 3-4 times before computer finally allows itself to stay on. Get knocked off and have to boot through all stages from turning on computer-logging in-trying to get on internet. Each stage causes me to have to re-boot until I finally get it to internet. This happens each time I log off and seems to takes longer each.\015

Answers :

This could either be a operating system problem or hardware.
\015\012O/S problem could be actually caused by several things but eventually it might not work at all. It can also be caused by a recent and rather nasty virus going around. I would save off any personal documents music pitcures as well as your favorites and emails adress's and anything else that would be "annoying" to loose. Once you have that done then you can try to fix it or take it to a shop. Basically you should start off restoring it to a previous working point. Next I would use an online antivirus scanner such as microtrends housecall (there are a few of them so use what you prefer). after that the next step would be to reinstall the operating system. Depending on which emachine it is it will either have a restore disk or use a part of the hard drive to store it.
\015\012Hardware problems could be either the cpu or the hard drive or the drive controller. Of those I would look at the hard drive or controller first. You can easily replace the drive but the controller is on the motherboard.
\015\012The biggest problem is balancing the cost of repairs verses a replacement. Given those symptoms it could either be a simple fix if it is virus or o/s or cost a good portion of a new box if it is hardware. As well it will depend on how much you can do before you need help from the shop.
