Go to emachins website and download your computer online manual try this link http://emachines.com/support/drivers.html
in this manual you should see if your computer has a recovery partition and if you can restore it. I restored my desktop by pressing ALT-F10

Are you based in the UK?
If so, and the laptop is under 1yr old then Emachines will collect it from you to do a reapir. It is still under warranty with them!
Their UK number is 0871 4670006

I have just had the same problem with my laptop and they are going to collect it and repair/replace it

How to erase data to factory system default on emachine t3504 i t says to hit start then click all programs then click emachine but that heading isnt on list


If your computer has a recovery partition on the hard drive to as follows:
  1. Restart the computer
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If your model does not have a recovery partition then you were given the option to make your own recovery CD's. Unfortunately if you did not do so then you will need to contact eMachines to see if they will sell you recovery CD's. I used to sell these models and as I recall they did not come stock with a restore CD.

I am trying to restore my emachine to it's original factory settings as I am going to sell it. I have been told that I need to go in the emachines folder in programs but there isn't a folder...


emachines does not provide any factory restore option in computer, in fact you might have received factory restore disks when you bought it, which can be used to restore your computer Or you can check with emachines if they can provide you these disks
hope this helps

I was trying to create the Recovery Management disk but everytime I try to burn the CD it keeps ejecting. I would really like it if you could provide some help. I recently bought this E-Machine computer...


Welcome to Fixya

Please see procedure below on how to create recovery disk. Let me know if smae thing will happen.

  • 1

    Click the "Start" icon on the Windows Vista home screen. Select "eMachines," then click "eMachines Recovery Management." The eMachines Recovery Management program opens.

  • 2

    Click "Create Factory Default Disc." The program will tell you how many discs you will need. Make sure the correct optical drive is selected, then insert a blank disc into that drive. Click "Start" to begin the burning process.

  • 3

    Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.

  • 4

    Press "F12" repeatedly when the eMachines logo is displayed on the screen to be redirected to the Boot menu. Select the optical drive, then press "Enter."

  • 5

    Insert Recovery CD 1 when you are prompted to insert the recovery disc. The eMachines Recovery Management program will open.

  • 6

    Click the "Restore" tab in the list on the left side of the eMachines Recovery Management program window, then select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults." The computer automatically restarts and the recovery process begins. Insert any additional recovery discs as requested. The computer will reboot automatically when the laptop has been recovered to its original factory default settings, and you will be taken to the Windows Setup screen.

    How can I reset my emachine w3653 to factory setting? Unfortunately, I forgot my password. help


    Hi! Normally the emachine came with an eRecovery Disk that you can use to restore the PC back to factory settings. To do that follow this steps:
    1. Press F2 to enter BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the eMachines logo is being displayed).
    2. Using the keyboard arrow keys, arrow over to Boot.
    3. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to CDROM.
    4. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the System CD.
    5. Close the CD-ROM tray.
    6. Press "F10", then press "Enter" to save the changes and reboot the system.
    7. The computer will boot from the eMachines Recovery Media, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

    My emachines t3604 starts up and all the fans are running but doesnt boot up and keyboard and monitor are not working. Replaced the ram but that doesnt work any ideas.


    Try downloading puppylinux, burn it onto a cd then boot from the cd, if everything works fine, then you need to reinstall windows.

    You'll need the Recovery CD for this. Try contacting emachines (www.emachines.com) and they should be able to sell you a duplicate of the CD.

    CD drive wont read on my brand new e627


    Hello, Jennifer.

    Since you just purchased the emachine two days ago and already there is a problem, I would suggest that you either return the computer to where you purchased (most place have a 7-day return policy) or contact emachines. Here the link to emachine's Customer Care: http://www.emachines.com/support/warranty.html

    I suspect that the CD drive is faulty and should be replaced.

    Hope this helps.

    I would like to make a recover cd for my emachine 770.


    Hi M_Borland,

    You could consider making Ghost CD's but that wont get you back to a factory setting, So if your computer is having issues Ghosting the system wouldn't be the best option. If you are interested in Ghost check out Norton's website. You could contact emachine and see about getting replacement CD's. Hope this answers your question.

    Thanks,
    Armymason
