    Hi, I have my sisters pc here, trying to fix it for her, it is an emachine T4160, she has had it for a couple yrs now, anyway, I have reformatted her harddrive for her, but when I try to use the restore cd, when it is complete and reboots, I get this error:
    technical information:
    STOP
    0XF9677640,0XC0000034,0X00000000,0X00000000
    I even went as far as to load windows 98 in it, and everything loads, but it came with xp home edition, and I want to put it back in for her, but I don't have xp home, I have xp pro, anyway, I can't find any help from www.emachines.com, what to do?

    There should be more to the STOP error. Does it not reference a module? Can you boot to safe mode? Because by owning that computer/restore CD, you own a license to XP Home, you can install from a normal XP home CD (copied from a friend for example).

    Yes, it said a lot more, but don't remember what all it said, then of course there were all those numbers. I talked with a guy from emachines.com, but everything they wanted me to they, I already had, still same thing. Anyway, I don't know anyone who has a cd for windows xp home.
    But thanks for taking the time to answer, I just put 98se on it, she will have to make do. I think she might have a boot virus or something, I told her to get a new harddrive.By the way, I couldn't even go to safe mode, though it gave me the option to, when I tried it, a bunch of stuff showed up, like command prompts or something.
