My dad bought a cheap emachines to learn to use the computer and for basic email, google, and what not. So one day it froze and he turned it on and off. He gets a widows did not boot corectly what would you like to do with the safe mode, normal bs. So he freaked and calls me up. So i came over and I hit normal, just reboots to same error, tried all 5, same thing. I format and reinstall with the emachines cd, everythign ok. I start loading the printer and scanner and it comes time for a reboot, then the error again! So i reformat, this time i never get into windows. I unplug all the stuff, printer and scanner and the junk and do it again, get to windows, install everything it works and i go home, then a day later same thing. I think the harddrives malfunctioning any thoughts?
