Unhappy Computer restarting problems

Hello to all; I have an Emachine T2542 with Windows XP Professional; I was restoring the computer settings to an earlier date under SYSTEM RESTORE. As it was loading, I noticed that it was going extremely slow. Then the progress just stopped. So like the computer idiot I am, I shut off the computer. When I turn on the computer, the "E" sign comes on for a second or 2 and then goes off. This cycle keeps repeating itself; while the can keeps going between the hard drive light flashing and the 3.5 drive flashing. (like it's stuck). I can hit the "F8" key and go to the [page that lets you do other things boot, safe mode;etc. But no matter what I go to; It does the same repeating sequence. Any Ideas?????? Help.... Thanks, Chris
