give it some time to install that update, if its still not working then might be possible that the update was not downloaded properly or it got corrupted while installation due to which its stucked on stage 3 of 3.

In these situations we can try to restart the computer into the safe mode and and then check which update is causing the computer to stuck on stage 3 of 3. If possible try to kill that update in safe mode too. To help you on that you need to provide me some more information.

Which operating system are you using?

If your hard drive is too full, then your computer is going to perform slower. Delete old files which are not required.
Remove programs that you are no longer using. Delete temporary files.
Empty your recycle bin. Right click on Recycle Bin. Click Empty Recycle Bin>Yes.

Guessing, but it sounds like your hard drive has been damaged. You may need a new drive, or at least repairs. If you have a "rescue disk", give that a try.

In general, you have to order recovery disks from the manufacturer of the machine.
In your case eMachines Store eRecovery is where you can order it, or you can initiate a discussion with tech support.
Also, many machines give you the option to burn your own recovery media when you first set it up. Most people skip this step. You should do this before you have problems. Search your machine for the word Recovery and see if you have an installer routine there.
Here are instructions to create a recovery disk on a USB stick

Please specify how exactly you're trying to make them work, what machine you're trying to make them work with, and what kind of connection your speakers are using.

General info:

Speakers usually get connected via 3,5 mm plug into the green round socket in the back or front of your computer. In Windows, if your speakers are properly connected and set up, right click on the sound pictogram in your taskbar and choose "Playback devices". Set your speakers to be the default playback device by left-clicking on the preferred device of your choise and clicking the button "Set default" below.

Flashing the bios is a last-ditch move. What happened before that?
Did it work before you flashed it? If the unit is interrupted during clash, or if it is the wrong bios, your goose could be cooked.
Read this:
There may be something you can use, especially if you have a floppy drive (a real one, not a usb-one).
You maybe can use flash drive in the usb port, but that's a long shot.
Good luck with that. I'd be looking at a new motherboard. They can be had pretty cheaply.

I understand that you want to reinstall the Operating System on the computer. Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer. To start the system recovery:
  1. Restart the computer
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Recovery Media.
  1. Insert the disk labeled System CD into the computer's disk drive and restart the computer.
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly.
  3. Select either CDROM or DVD as the boot device, this may vary depending on the system.
  4. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
  5. Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.
  6. After the system recovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

Refer the URL for more information and for the link to order the Recovery media if required.

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
