I have a E-machine laptop it about 2years old. I was on the internet and it went to a blank screen when I tried to reboot it, it would only go as far as the screen that says starting windows. I tried to restore it but that didn't work. So I purchased a recovery disc from E-Machine but the didn't work either. I would appreciate any suggestion you might have.

We need as much information as you can give us. Describe exactly what happens and provide your full specs.
Is this a homebuilt PC?

Do you have data on there that you need to preserve? Would you be hostile to wiping it completely and reinstalling Windows?

I think you should first deal with E-Machine. Complain that the recovery disk didn't work; maybe they'll just replace the machine. After that, you may just have to purchase Windows.
You could try to install Ubuntu off a USB drive. That would allow you to determine whether you have a hardware problem. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBS...
