problem getting recovery disk


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.

Error message "restore failed 0x00000070"


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings. Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor. Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs." Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default." Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process. Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.

I have an emachine model# W3609. It's very slow


Back up all of your photos, documents, folders, files, favorites (bookmarks) and anything else you would like to keep and reinstall after the system recovery. Use a CD, DVD, flash drive, MP3 or external hard drive to store your data temporarily.
Click on the "System Recovery" icon (usually found within the start menu) and begin the process by following the on-screen prompts.
Click on "restore" and note the warnings about losing all of your data. Wait for the computer to complete the process of erasing the hard drive and creating a new partition.
Insert the emachines recovery disk in the CD tray when prompted. This will start the process. There are usually one or two disks involved and the computer will let you know which ones to insert when and will even eject the tray automatically in most cases. You may have to restart at least three times, do not be alarmed by this and keep the disk in until you are prompted otherwise.

Example of Windows Installation Install Windows on the new partition and follow the prompts on your screen. Be sure to choose the largest partition, the one with the most kb available. There are usually two to choose from, as you have deleted the other ones in the steps prior.
Reinstall all of your backed up data and any software programs you are currently using, including the printer and Internet, if needed. Be sure all of your drivers and hardware is working properly, as they have been reinstalled as well during the recovery procedure. OR
  1. Place the recovery disk that came with the eMachines computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.

    Click "Next" when the operating system restoration screen appears. Click "Repair Your Computer" and then select "Next."

    Locate your eMachine's current operating system in the list of available operating systems, such as "Windows Vista." Click the appropriate choice and then choose "Next."

    Select "Load Drivers" and wait for the drivers to finish installing. Select "System Restore" and then click "Next."

    Scroll down through the list of available restore points. Select the first restore point if you want to completely revert the computer to factory settings. Select a later restore point if you just want to roll back any changes to your computer to an earlier date.

    Click "Next" and then select "Finish." Click "Yes" and then choose "Restart" to restore the eMachines computer.
