  1. Ive been wanting to restore my computer to factory settings for some time now. Today I decided to do so and as it was restoring several errors popped up, this led to me cancelling the restoration and a large problem occurring.

    Whenever I restart the computer now a blue screen appears saying something like autochk not found, restarting. I dont have any cd's to use and my computer is an emachines system running windows xp.

    Help would be appreciated as I need to access the computer to restore again.

    Thanks for the advise in advance.

    Another problem is that the disk drive also doesnt work.

    You may have a bad motherboard and you will have to re-install Windows fresh if you can
