I'm trying to reboot my e-machines w3107 to it's factory settings, and i had no luck, i lost the recovery cd, what can i do?


The E-Machines W3107 ships with Windows XP home edition. I will provide support for Windows XP. If you have upgraded to another version of Windows let me know in the comments section and I will provide further support.

The first thing you should do before performing any kind of system restore is to back up any important data on your computer. To do so, either save the files you need on disks, an external hard drive, or other storage device. If you need help with this, let me know.

Once you have everything you need backed up it is time to start the recovery process. Restart your computer (Start> Turn off computer> restart). Once your computer boots back up, remove all the disks from your disk drives (CD's, floppy disks, etc.), and unplug all devices connected to your computer except for your mouse, keyboard, and monitor. This includes your modem (if applicable) and printer.

After all disks and devices have been removed, open the start menu, go to "all programs," then find the "e-machines" folder. In that folder, click "eMachines Recovery Management" and select the "restore" tab at the top of that window.

More than likely you have not yet set a recovery password, so click the button that says "password settings." Follow the onscreen instructions to create a new password and click "ok." Once that's done, click "restore system to factory default."

You will then be prompted to enter the password you just created. Do so, click "ok," then click "next," then "finish." Your computer will then begin recovering.

Stay by your computer as it restarts and begins to install Windows again. This will take some time, but you need to stick around to follow the onscreen instructions for configuring windows.

Thanks for using Fixya! If you need anymore help, feel free to leave a comment in this thread and I will get back to you.

Tip

Windows system always restart


Computer often restarts, can not enter windows.<br /> Firstly check your ram.<br /> If you can, do a test with the new ram it's better.<br /> if not, make sure your use ram is fully functional.<br /><br />Turn on your computer, if the problem is still the same.<br />Do a test on your power supply. make sure the power supply to do the test is 100% work or use the new.<br /><br />Turn on your computer again, if the problem still occurs. unplug all cables connected to hard disks, cd / dvd rom, floppy and remove all the pci cards. now leave the connection to the power supply to the motherboard and the other connecting wayer suiz on / off (all the connections on the panel) if you are using a display card, left the display card in the slot and then turn on your computer.<br /><br />Now look at the results. if still the same. This means you need to do tests on your processor and motherboard. but if your computer does not restart again stable, this means, most likely the problem comes from the hard disk.<br /><br />Ok. now try to connect to your hard disk. problem occurs frequently restart <br />again right?<br /><br />If so, you need to perform tests on your hard disk. <br />how to perform the test, if you have important data in the hard disk. I suggest you first Copy your data to another computer first. by connecting the hard disk into the computer that you want to use to make copies (if the type of hard disk pata / ideas, set the jumper to slave and connect to any idea that the cable has not been used in the computer you use, if no the cable idea, you can use a cable that is used for cd / dvd ram for a while) if your SATA hard disk, no need to set jumpers, just connect the sata cable and then just copy the data may be at work to do.<br /> <br />After completion of all copied data. The cover page, then klik2x on my computer icon. observe the hard disk drive for. (For example, now for the hard disk drive is e. Right-click on the drive and click format. If the page to format mungul. Tick box format for quick and clear the volume level and then click Start.<br /> <br />after the format, remove the hard disk and set the jumper to the original and put it on your computer. then for the window installation process you will be done as usual.<br />** (If your problem still occurs. My suggestion is that you must use a new hard disk or a 100% hard work and re-do the installation window, because the hard disk is damaged or has a bad sector will cause your system files are always auto restart due -file to boot normally have been damaged or lost due to bad sectors.) **<br /> <br />good luck ... <br />Contact me for further problems<br /><br />Regards<br />multilinkent<br />Thank fixya<br /><br /><br />

Hi! I need help with my computer. I use a seagate ST380811AS hard disk in my desktop computer. The problem now, is that everytime I start my computer "A non system disk" appears on the monitor or...


1 Remove any floppy disks or bootable CDs, DVDs, USB flash drives or other bootable media from the computer. Attempt to restart the computer again. Proceed if you continue to receive the error.
2 Restart the computer again. Press the key required to enter your BIOS setup. (The monitor usually displays a "Press [key] to access BIOS" right after restarting your computer. Press the key shown on your screen.)
3 Navigate to the "Boot Options" or "Advanced" menu by using the arrow keys. (The precise menu terms will vary according to your computer and BIOS type.)
4 Select the hard disk that contains your operating system (usually C:) as your primary boot device. Select your CD/DVD drive, your floppy drive or another hard disk as your secondary boot device.
5 Save and exit the BIOS. Proceed with the next step if you see the "Non-system disk error" message again.
6 Restart the computer. Return to the BIOS' "Boot Options" screen by following the steps above, then set the "CD/DVD drive" as the primary boot device and the hard disk as the secondary boot device. Save and exit the BIOS.
7 Insert your Windows installation disc. Restart the computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Follow the on-screen prompts to reinstall Windows.
8 Replace your hard disk drive if you cannot install Windows.

I need help uninstalling window seven so that i can get back window vista that was bought with my computer


You cannot uninstall an operating system once it's installed. The only way to remove it is to reformat the hard drive (meaning erasing everything) and then installing Vista (if you have the isntallation disk that came with the computer). Now some PC's have a restore button like Lenovo or IBM computers where all you need to do is press that button and then it will reload the operating system and therefore erasing the one that's installed in your computer. For all other computer brands, you would need the Installation disk.
If you have the installation disk, just put the disk inside then restart the computer. As the computer restarts, continuously tap F12 to pull up the boot options menu. Then select " boot to optical/CD/DVD drive" then press enter and from there, just follow the instructions and you're good to go.

Note: You should always ask for the Installation disks for the OS (operating system) whenever you
buy one that came pre-installed with an OS. Always.

Hope this helps.

Your CMOS battery is dead.

The battery is a CR2035. Find the battery on the motherboard BEFORE you spend any money. It's about the size of an american quarter.

Restart your computer and as its starting hold F8. This will take you into system restore. Choose Factory Default Restore. This will take your computer back to its original state when it was purchased. You will lose all files that were previously in the unit.

Hp media center - hard disc failure iminent


I am sure that noone wants to tel you thins but when you go the Hard disk failer iminent that was so you woudl shut it down and transfer everything onto another disk. Once it crashes, such as your has, you cannot recover the data w/o very expensive equiptment or costly contracting out the HD for data recover.      About the only thing that you can do now is replace the hard drive, download a   recovery disk from HP,if one is available, for your model, If you have not already made one, and reinstall the software from the disk.

My computer keeps restarting


do you see an error message at some point?
describe in which part specifically your computer restart?
what were you doing last before the computer started acting up on you?

it may be a driver problem:
have you tried to restart in safe mode?.. after the post sequence press f8 and start the computer in safemode. there are other options you may want to try from the advance startup menu that comes up when pressing f8. if you are able to start the computer in safemode your problem most likely is with a driver.

did you install new hardware?
try uninstalling the new hardware and restart the computer to see if that solves the problem

you may have a problem with some configuration files or booting files...
try to restart your computer with a windows 98 boot disk. first download the disk from http://www.bootdisk.com/ and make a floppy disk as directed. then get into the cmos/bios of your computer and make sure your first booting device is your floppy drive, then put your newly made win 98 boot disk in the floppy drive and restart your computer. at the prompt type c: then enter then type win

You may have a corrupted driver for your PMD. See if the manufacturer as a driver or HP.
Microsoft Windows drivers must have an INF file in order to be installed. An INF file is a text file that contains all the information necessary to install a device, such as driver names and locations, registry information, version information, that is used by the Setup components.
