Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
When I use my restore dvd, everything goes well until it's time to name the computer. I can either type in a name and hit next or hit skip and the system just sits there with the choices greyed out. I can still move the mouse pointer and click on help and get the help menu, but the restore never goes any farther.
How about just leaving the name the way it is (the default) and not changing it.. (don't worry about doing it at that moment... you can always change the name of your computer later when everything is installed later.
leave your computer unplugged from the network (internet) and try again. (make sure not use any spaces or odd characters.. I don't think it would allow you to either but just in case)
