When I start computer, here are the messages I get:
Boot from AHCI CD ROM
No Emulation -System Type 00
Pres any key to boot from CD or DVD
Microsoft Corporation (with a loading bar)
-My Hanns G monitor says "Adjusting"
then everything goes black.
Here are the things I've tried.
A. If I push a button to boot from CD it says "Windows is Loading Files" for about 3 seconds, then goes black for 60 seconds and flashes a blueish, greenish desktop looking screen with a circle that looks like its loading something. This lasts about 2 seconds and then all goes black and nothing else happens.
B. If I do not push a botton to boot from CD and just let it boot normally, this is what happens:
There is a real quick screen that says something like "Windows did not shut down properly. You may be able to save...... by starting in one of these safe modes:
- Safe Mode (when I choose this, it goes black for a bit, then a large arrow appears, then all goes black again. nothing else happens
-Safe Mode with Networking (same thing happens) -should i click something else at some point?
-Safe Mode with Command Prompt (same thing happens) - do i need to enter a command here?
-Start Windows Normally (black screen, nothing happens)
The only other things I see that I can press are right at the beginning when the eMachines screen comes up. It says I can press F10 for Display Boot Menu or F2 for BIOS
When I choose F10 I am given these options:
choosing any of these does nothing to load Windows.
or if I choose F2 and then I get the BIOS screen which flases for about 1 second or so. But I'm not sure what to do at that point. Any ideas or help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you!!!
