Hello and good morning.
emachines are old and now owned by acer.com (gateway,etc)
they OWN many old names.
you are running XP right? the last man on earth to do so?

XP is a virus magnet and doomed, it is time to upgrade.
this PC is 2007 made. so is 12 years old, today..
the RTC coin cell battery will be no good now, replace it for $2
then reset BIOS inside BIOS screen " set default"
then test the HDD, to be sure it is ok, if not? then reloading any OS of any kinds is not going to work with any bad HDD.
Last, reload a new OS.
there are the steps. and can be expensive, spent on any PC this old with zero street value. ($0 if broken a it is)

SOURCE: Emachines T2385 startup problem

Psu is a Power Supply issue but the black screen with a blinking white line is not.
The blinking white line can mean there is no instructions to tell the Computer to boot up. Which could be possibly the system battery (cmos) or Hard Drive.
I would narrow those 3 things down first.

suspected hard disk faulty or OS corrupted.
to check, take out your hard disk and put it in other laptop. if the problem persist your OS is corrupted. In that case, you need to reformat your OS in a defaulty factory settings.

  3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
  4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.

    Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
  5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.

SOURCE: vista boots just Black screen with cursor even in safe mode

Yes, this is a known issue with Vista. You need to back-up your data, format your hard drive and re-install Vista from the beginning.
There is really no use trying to repair it: it is damaged.
After you re-install Vista, do not forget to install service packs from microsoft.com.

I have a emachine computer that wont start up goes to a black screen that says start windows,normally ans never starts


Did you press the Enter key? when you see that black screen, you can use the cursor keys to move up to "Safe Mode with Networking". See if that option will work. If so, run a virus scan with the free Malwarebytes from malwarebytes.org

Did you make any changes to the system just before this happened? In Safe Mode, you can remove any software that was recently added.. that might help; then restart the system.

Emachines T6524 won't reboot after automatic update. I get the windows screen when I turn it on, and everything seems fine, then the screen goes black and I get the no signal message.


You should try to boot in safe mode without the card removed..If this got on after an update it is possible (almost sure) it messed up with your graphic card driver and now it needs to be reinstalled > To do so ..try to boot in safe mode...To do that press the key indicated on screen for boot menu and choose safe mode ...usually it is f8 key or f12 ..depend on the model .If it seams not to be able to find the safe mode boot ..try to stop the computer by unplugging it ..This will force it to stop improper way ..and will show the screen for safe mode and other ways to boot-up .select the first safe mode ..and let it start ..This mode will not load any drivers and work just with the minimum needed for to start .Go to control panel ...remove programs ..and remove the graphic card driver from the list ..after that if you have the disk insert it and run the driver again in original ..If you do not have it look for it on the manufacturer's site ..and download it ..
If you need help with the driver ..let me know exact model of the computer ..and if it is not an on board card I need to know the exact model of the video card ..

Safe Mode is also Black..


I found your other posts regarding this problem. I believe it may be that your monitor is failing. Do you have another monitor to try? Another clincher is to start the computer, do the login, and when the monitor goes dark, turn off it's power button, and turn it back on after waiting for 30 seconds or so. If the monitor lights and looks normal then goes back off, it's the monitor at fault.
