Type is going off the screen

I recently had to do a system recovery on my computer, which went OK, however I notice the type is going off the screen on the left side. Is this a monitor adjustment or a computer adjustment?

Factory restore


If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.


It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.


However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.


Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer.



Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings.

How can i restore back to factory condition without the disc?


Use the following steps to recover the computer from the Windows XP desktop:
  1. Backup files from the My Documents folder and from other folders you may have created.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. From the Windows XP desktop, click Start , All Programs , and then one of the following options:
    NOTE: The following options are for HP computers. Compaq computers will have similar options (for example, Compaq Tools).
    • HP Tools , and then HP PC System Recovery .
    • Hewlett-Packard , hp pavilion pc tools , and hp pc system recovery .
    • PC Help & Tools , and then HP PC System Recovery .
    c00370937.jpg A recovery Welcome screen appears.
  4. Click Yes or OK to continue the recovery process. The computer restarts to the recovery program. If another welcome screen is displayed, click OK to continue.
  5. Select one of the following procedures, depending on which recovery type you want to perform:
    • To perform a system recovery, click Next , and then click Yes
    • To perform a destructive recovery, click Advanced , (select Destructive Recovery ) and then click Next .
      CAUTION: A destructive recovery will format the hard drive. This will delete all the information on the hard drive and reinstall Windows XP and the original software that came with the computer.
  6. Read and respond to each window and screen that appears.
  7. After the System Recovery is complete, the computer restarts and continues into Windows setup. Complete the setup screens and wait until the PC finishes the setup.
    NOTE: It may take a long time to complete Windows setup. This time varies and may take over several hours. Recovery times are most affected by using recovery discs that were ordered from HP and/or the amount of files that were stored in the user account folders (for example, My Documents and the Desktop).
  8. Before using your computer, update and protect your computer. For more information, refer to Things To Do After Performing a System Recovery in Windows XP .
  9. Re-install applications that you added after purchasing the computer, and any files that you have backed up.

Cant access router screen or get on the internet after updating the firmware


If you have updated the firmware for your router and you can no longer access the router screen please follow these steps and you will regain access to that screen. In the browser address bar type in http://192.168.2.1:88/login.htm. If you still cannot access the screen, follow the instructions below. FOR Win95, 98, 98SE, ME: 1. Right click on Network Neighborhood. (you should see the icon on your desktop, or for winME it will say My Network Places) 2. Double click on TCP/IP for your network adapter. 3. Select ?Specify an IP address? and type in 192.168.2.41. For the Subnet Mask use 255.255.255.0 4. Then click on the DNS Configuration tab and select Enable DNS. For Host name you may assign whatever name you prefer. (ex: your name, or your computer name) Leave the Domain name blank. Under DNS search order, type in 4.2.2.1 and click add. Then add 4.2.2.2. 5. Click on the Gateway tab. Under New Gateway, type in 192.168.2.1 and click add. 6. Then click ok. Click ok again and you should be prompted to restart. 7. Once the computer is restarted, open your browser and in the address bar type in 192.168.2.1. You will get the router login screen. If you get a screen that says Recovery Micro Code, that means the update didn?t go through and you will need to update it again. For Win2000, XP: 1. Go to your control panel and double click on Network Connections (for winXP you have to select Network and Internet Connections, then Network Connections) 2. Right click on your Local Area Connection and go to properties. 3. Double click on Internet Protocol and your TCP/IP properties should open up. 4. Select ?Use the following IP address? and type in 192.168.2.41. The Subnet Mask should be 255.255.255.0. 5. For the Default Gateway use 192.168.2.1. 6. Select ?Use the following DNS server address?. For the Preferred DNS server type in 4.2.2.1. For the Alternate, type in 4.2.2.2. 7. Click ok, then click ok again and restart your computer. 8. Once the computer is restarted, open your browser and in the address bar type in 192.168.2.1. You will get the router login screen. If you get a screen that says Recovery Micro Code, that means the update didn?t go through and you will need to update it again.
