I have an emachines T3516 Desktop PC running XP Home and when the power button is pressed it goes to the menu that asks how you want to start windows because it was not shut down properly. I choose start windows normally, last known good configuration and safe mode. The first 2 make i o the windows logo screen with the moving bar then a quick blue screen and reboots. Safe mode reboots also with blue stop message screen. The Stop is......
STOP: 0x000000ED (0x8AA5C030, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

The computer has been sitting here for a while about a year, I was trying to fix it again today. Last time it was working, I turned the computer on after moving its location and the monitor was not connected as I forgot to connect the cable. I connected it while the computer was already on when I noticed the screen did not turn on. I don't know if that could have caused this problem but it might be a possibility. There is no new hardware or software that was installed prior to this. Windows XP came pre-installed and I do not have a Windows CD for recovery console. Microsoft website list setting the bios to fail safe default, is that an option? Or pulling out the CMOS battery? The only thing I saw in Bios was setup defaults i think, I'm assuming that's the same. Can anybody give me some helpful info here? I tried Googling the stop message to see if there was a proper explanation for my problem but there was not. I tried looking up the stop message on the Microsoft website and the same thing. It's their message and they can't even tell you exactly what it is. Help Please!
