Emachine Continuously Reboots after Running Restore CDs

By hobbsje ·
The motherboard in an Emachine T2885 that have went out. I replaced it with a different motherboard (different manufacturer and model). I use the three Restore CD's that came with the computer to restore the factory configuration. When the last CD finished loaded, I removed the CD (as instructed) and pressed enter. The computer appeared to start rebooting (screen black flollowed by the "Compaq" screen) but then the boot selection menu (Safe Mode, Normal Mode, etc) came up. I selected Safe Mode. It appeared to start booting in Same Mode. It displayed a list of files being loaded and after ...\mup.sys came up, the computer automatically rebooted and run the same steps again and again. The CDs state on the label that they will only work on emachines. But are they matched to the original motherboare? Anyone got any suggestions?
