I went to use my computer the other day and it was frozen, so I restarted it, but after about 10 minutes I got the blue screen of death. I should have taken a picture of it but didn't. It tried to go into a repair mode but then froze again. Now when I try to turn my computer on and do the windows start up repair it will either not do it, or it will start doing it and then freeze. If I start my windows normally it will just continue to reboot over and over again or the screen will go black and make a terrible loud pitch beep. So I can't even turn it on to do a restart point or a virus scan or anything.

If your BIOS is beeping at you then you have a hardware failure in the computer. Most emachines use phoenix bios, but you didn't say exactly what the beeps were. Usually one long beep means the memory is bad, or unseated. If you try to reseat the memory then always touch the computer case with your bare fingers to dispel any static electricity in your body. Static E can damage computer parts very easily. Here are beep codes for most computers.

Hi Caitlin DeMartile ... :wave: ..:welcome:

have you tried booting into safe mode...

As you press the power button but before Windows launches, tap F8... about once a second
On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press F8 when the boot menu appears.

Use the arrow keys to highlight the safe mode option, and then press ENTER...
