This should be your graphics card driver is not it. The original installation of hardware drivers may be better.

If that is not what system you set up the software in question. Can be re-systems.

Ihad my computer mem wiped out because of virus,no fix it disc how to restore it to origunal factory settings


Reset the parameters you stated above yourself. No need for a Restoration Disk, or a Full Installation disk.

(Full Installation disk = New genuine copy of Windows.
{ Note* Microsoft makes one Master disk. From this all genuine copies are made, and sold to the consumer )

A) Can't rip CD's or movies? I suggest the free Infra Recorder.

Home page;

http://infrarecorder.org/

Screenshots;

http://infrarecorder.org/?page_id=4

B) Screen is too big?
Go to eMachines Support, your desktop computer model number, and Drivers. Download AND install the VGA drivers.

Then reset the Screen Resolution, to the native resolution of the monitor, in Display Properties.

[ Display Properties:
Windows XP;
1) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen

2) Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the fly-out list

To change Screen Resolution:
3) Left-click on the Settings tab

4) Go down to the middle of the small window to -
Screen resolution

5) Drag the Slider to the pixel ratio you need.
(Left-click on Slider, hold the left mouse button down, slide the mouse in the direction you want the Slider to go )

6) On Color quality to the right;
Make sure it is set at - Highest (32 bit)

If it isn't;
Left-click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the Color quality box.
Left-click on Highest (32 bit)
Left-click on Apply at the bottom right
Then left-click on OK at the bottom left

Find your monitor on the internet, if it did not come with your eMachines. See what the native resolution is.
Also, monitors come with an installation disk, which also has the drivers on it.

C) Start > Control Panel > Appearance and Themes > To the left under the heading - See Also, click on - Fonts.
Change the font size (If needed after changing Screen resolution)

D) Click on Internet Explorer
Go to your browser home page, (Yahoo, Firefox, etc), and set it up again.

E) Go to Microsoft Support, and download the new Windows Media Player,

[ Click on Windows Media > Downloads and Updates > Get Windows Media Player,

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-media-player

IF memory serves Gateway bought out eMachines, then Acer bought out Gateway, and eMachines.
I have heard it is tough, and/or expensive to obtain a Restoration Disk, plus a lengthy wait.

Otherwise it is buy a new genuine copy of Windows, install it, and when asked save the old files.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Whenever I go into full screen it just shows me a black screen and my mouse. I can hear the sound of the video. The setting that I am using is 800 x 600 pixels. 32 bit.


Your setting is too low to accomodate the colors of a video. You need to change your resolution to 1024 min. Right click on the desktop with your mouse away from the ICON's and choose properties. Change the display settings to a higher number and save your choice. Then try the video in full screen mode again and advise if this solves your problem?

My computer begins to load windows, then after the screen with the windows logo and bars goes away my screen goes black.


Nine times out of ten if that's when your display stops, it's simply because your display settings are set to something that your monitor can't handle. Depending on what it's not supporting, some monitors respond by going black ... others just go "crazy" displaying unintelligible gibberish.
If that's the problem, it's fairly easy to fix.
First things first ... let's get you a bootable system.
Boot in safe mode - press F8 when the Windows loader presents you with the 30 second list of choices, and then select "Safe Mode" as your boot option.
Right click on the desktop and click Properties, and then on the Settings tab.
Now click and drag the Screen Resolution slider to the far left ... you want the smallest settings that your screen will support. Typically that'll be 640x480, or 800x600.
Also change the Color Quality dropdown to 256 colors, or whatever is lowest. (You probably don't need to go as low as 16 colors, if that's presented as an option.)
Now, click on the Advanced button, and then the Monitor tab of the resulting dialog box. Change the Screen refresh rate to 60 Hertz.
OK your way back out, and reboot your machine. If these setting were the source of the problem, it should now be able to boot normally. You may not like the screen settings, but at least you now have a place to start.
"Start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor."
If the display is still blank or gibberish, the my recommendation is to once again boot into Safe Mode, possibly Safe Mode with networking, and update your video display drivers. It's likely that they are incorrect or otherwise broken. Now start experimenting with the settings to see what does, and does not, work with your monitor.
I tend to start with the screen resolution. Once again right click on the desktop and click Properties, then Settings, and then drag the Screen Resolution slider a notch or two to the right to increase your display resolution. Now click Apply. It should change the resolution and display a small message box asking if you want to accept this setting. If you don't respond within some time, it assumes you can't see it, so it resets to the previous setting. If the screen goes blank or you can't read it, wait at least one minute before doing anything. The problem may resolve itself, and you'll be able to say "well, that resolution doesn't work", and move on to try another.
If, after a full minute or more the screen remains blank or unreadable, you'll have to reboot into safe mode, as we did originally, to restore your setting. (Why might this happen? Windows "remembers" and doesn't bother to ask you if you reset to something that you previously said worked. If you mistakenly said "this works" when it didn't ... perhaps by random keyboarding while the display was blank ... well, that could be how we got here in the first place.) You can repeat this process of trial and error for each of the screen resolution, the color depth and the screen refresh rate. (For CRT displays, you really do want the refresh rate to be as high as your monitor supports.)

Unable to change color depth...


Ok I think i found your problem. You don't need to install any drivers.

Switch your display to 256 colors To switch your display to 256 colors
Some games and other software programs require that your monitor be set to 256 colors, or they run better in 256 colors. Many of those programs will switch your monitor to 256 colors automatically when you start the program. For those that don't, follow the steps below if you want to switch the display temporarily while the game or program is running.
  1. On your desktop or on the Start menu, right-click the game or other program that you want to run in 256 colors, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the Compatibility tab.
  3. Select the Run in 256 colors check box.
  • The screen will revert to your default color quality when you close the program.
  • Try switching to 256 colors if your software program shows the wrong color or the graphics redraw slowly.
  • If your software program appears in a small window in the center of your screen, you can increase its size by changing your screen resolution temporarily. Follow the procedure above, but in step 3 select the Run in 640x480 screen resolution check box. Your screen resolution will revert to its previous resolution when you close the program.
  • The Compatibility tab is available only for programs or games located on your computer's hard disk. It is not available if the program is stored on a floppy disk, compact disk, or a network.

My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
  • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
    NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
    1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
    2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
      1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
      2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
      3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
      4. Click OK and restart the computer.
      5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
      6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
      7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
      8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
    3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
    4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
    5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
    6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
    7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
      NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
    8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
Step 2: Connect to another monitor
Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
  • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
  • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.

Make sure the drivers for both monitors are installed. Update the driver for your graphics card. Hopefully this will fix your problem. Good luck.

This maybe due to lack of Video Card/Monitor drivers or the resolution is set to a small size. You will have to find out which video card you have, and if you have an LCD sometimes they come with drivers (Samsung LCDs have drivers). To find out what video card you have, you can usually go off the model name and number of your computer and get the drivers from your manufacturer's website. If it is a home built computer, you will have to look at the card/motherboard model and serial numbers to figure out the video card they use. Normally XP has a default video driver and it should not do a miniature resolution, but it happens sometimes.
