Lost System Recovery Disk

I lost my system recovery disk for my emachine laptop (Windows ME -Media Center Edition) and I need it because my stupid dad tried to upgrade to vista but when he did it vista comes up and everything is in German on my menus and everything... PLUS I'm missing drivers because of it. I need a recovery disk so I can put my laptop back the way I had it. I don't know where or how to find one and my warrenty just ran out!!

    Yes it came with a disk to put it back to its original state but I cannot find it anywhere. I've moved twice and I'm thinking it got lost along the way somewhere, somehow.

    did the old system come with a recovery disk for returning it to the original state, thats the first option. If this system did not come with the syatem disk then chances are that it was installed on the hard drive under another partition besides the bootable one windows installs to and if your father did a complete partition and format of the whole drive , this will have been lost.

    If this is the case you will need to purchase a copy of windows xp or millinium to install , then go to emachines site and download the drivers and install them.

    If you still have the original partition containing your install files you can consult your manual or post the model here and i can check online to see if this model had a recovery sector on the harddrive or was shipped with a disk.

    Please post again if you need a few more steps.
