How do i restore bk to factory settings on a emachines 130 pc runnind windows xp as i carnt load msn onto it or anythink like that i brought the pc second hand and want to start from fresh with it


If you buy a copy of XP with the service pack, load the XP system CD and let it format and reset the hard drive. When it has loaded XP, install the required drivers and then install Service Pack 3, that will allow you to download the latest Microsoft updates and there you go, a new system.

Tip

What Does It Mean When Support for My Operating System Ends?


Microsoft Support for Windows Vista (with no service packs installed) ended on April 13, 2010, while support for Windows XP (without Service Pack 3 installed) ended on July 13, 2010. Windows 2000 support ended on July 13, 2010 as well.
There is no Service Pack 3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. If you're running the 64-bit version of Windows XP with SP2, you have the latest service pack and will continue to be eligible for support and receive updates until April 8, 2014.
If you are still running a version of Windows where support has ended, it means that version of Windows will no longer receive any updates from the Windows Update or Microsoft Update site. These updates are generally provided for security reasons to help protect the PC from harmful viruses, spyware, malware, and other malicious software. Windows Update also provides new drivers for your hardware that can improve the reliability of Windows.
Hackers love to take a security vulnerability in Windows and exploit it to their advantage. So, if a vulnerability is found in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you are not running the latest service pack, you will not be protected and will be at risk.

How Can I Tell What Service Pack is Installed?
Follow these steps to discover what Service Pack is installed:
1) Click on the Start Button
2) Right-click on either My Computer or Computer (depending on your Windows version)
3) Click on Properties
On this window, it should tell you which version of Windows along with which service pack is installed). It should also tell you whether you are running a 32 bit or 64 bit version of Windows.

My computer will not properly install Microsoft Windows XP service pack 3. What do I need to do to fix this problem?


You need to get an official service pack 3 from microsoft's website.

Follow this link (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en)
The file size is about 316 mb.

If you already have this file, service pack 3 will not install if your current version of windows has errors. That means you have to reinstall Windows XP, install your pc device drivers, then install windows xp service pack 3.

Did you try performing a system restore to a point before installing SP2? If you had System Restore enabled, try performing a restore. Let me know if it works.

What version of Windows are you running, and what service pack? If it's XP, try upgrading to XP SP3. Less than XP, try this: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ie/ie6/downloads/recommended/ime/install.mspx

Language packs are found on the OS CD, but since you don't have that you can try searching Microsoft Downloads for MUIs.
