Question about E-Machines Computers & Internet
On eMacines, the recovery partition contains your driver and software. But you needed to create the recovery cd set when you got your computer.
To restore it,if your computer came with XP, borrow an Win XP cd (cannot be a HP,Dell etc).
Try a repair first:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstall the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If a repair does not work, do a complete install.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
