i have an e machine with windows seven. after emachine logo screen comes up nothing happens. i made recovery disks after purchase and it required 3 dvds. only way i can boot up is to put recovery disk #3 in and reboot from dvd drive. could this be a cmos or bios problem and how to fix it. compuiter is less than a year old.

If you have Windows 7 DVD then you can use it for Recovery.
If you do not have Win 7 DVD, download Windows 7 Recovery Disk ISO image from here http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/
Burn them to a CD (all instructions for downloading and burning on the link above)

Then boot from this CD and choose to Startup Repair as show here : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows...ns-in-Windows-7

I do not think its BIOS or CMOS problem. Had it been that kind of problem you wont be able to boot at all.

i was able to run startup repair with a repair disk and it didnt work. this was a different disk than the recovery disks. i booted from recovery disk #1 and ran a total rebuild. did not fix problem. try to boot from disk #1 and it wants to go through the rebuild again which i decline. booting from disk #3 is the only way computer will boot and then it works fine.

Boot using repair disk, select command prompt and give commands bootrec /fixmbr then bootrec /fixboot. Then rebuild BCD using the information on this page : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392
