    hello everyone, I hope I have this in the correct section,,I apologize if I don't..
    I have a emachine T3418,which I was using with no problem at all last night, shut it down ,turned it back on this morning and all I'm getting is the "e screen" with the boot option and bios option, BUT- it won't let me choose either one. It just freezes there. I have shut down,restarted,over and over- and nothing new happens,just does the same thing. I haven't made any changes at all,I did change my surge outlet in case that was the problem,but again-nothing..I'm lost at this point at what route to take on it. If there is any help out here for me,please give me some advice-except buy another computer- that's just not possible right now,ha ( seriously though).. PLease hellllp,,,,thanks in advance.merry christmas.;)

    Hi,

    Explain what happens (visually) when you first turn on the computer.

    And since you mentioned you shut it down, how did you shut it down?
    Power button, button on back on tower, went to shutdown from windows, etc
