How to restore system


im assuming you have the recovery disk

Restart the computer and press the pause/break key on the keyboard.


This key will slow down the boot process and allow you to see the motherboard BIOS access key that you'll need to press in order to access the motherboard BIOS.


Press the respective motherboard access key and check the motherboard BIOS for a boot sequence.

Change the settings in the boot sequence so the primary boot device or the first boot drive is the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.


Insert the system recovery disc into the disc drive.

Restart the computer and allow it to boot up before doing anything.


A black screen should show up with the words Press any key to boot from disc CD/DVD.
Press a key to have the system boot from the recovery disc.


Allow the system to load.

Follow the on-screen instructions on how to install the rest of the operating system.


There are many different settings for you to choose.
If the operating system is just a little out of whack, you can choose to repair it.


The system recovery disc will contain important drivers and software for all the components connected to the computer system.


If you do not have a system restore disc you can search the Internet for drivers and software that are packaged for your specific eMachines model.


Restore the BIOS to their default settings so the hard drive is primary boot sequence.

This is an optional step.


You can leave the CD-ROM drive as the primary boot drive, but it will slow down the startup process by a few seconds.

hope this helps

How-to repair Windows XP, How to Perform an In-Place Upgrade


One of the best kept secrets of Windows XP is it's built in repair feature!

In previous versions of Windows, correcting an operating system error, or installing a new motherboard, usually meant formating and reinstalling, resulting in loss of all data. Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system!

Why would I want to reinstall Windows XP?
1) Can't start Windows XP in safe mode.
2) You have problems caused by a recently installed system update (Windows Update, hotfix, Windows XP service pack, or Microsoft Internet Explorer update).
3) Your problems can't be solved with system restore, or you can't access system restore.
4) You've installed a new motherboard, or made other major hardware changes and need to reinstall Windows.


Let's get started!

Step 1: Rule out hardware issues. Windows Repair will only fix software problems. Hardware issues can also cause boot problems (i.e. bad hard drive, memory, CPU, or power supply).

Step 2: Backup. It's always a good idea to backup your important data before making changes to Windows XP. Relax, if you follow these instructions your data will be perfectly safe.

Step 3: Boot from your Windows XP CD. Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer. When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD. Can't boot from your CD? Please see the note at the bottom of this page (Configuring Your Computer to Boot from CD).

Step 4: A blue screen will appear and begin loading Windows XP Setup from the CD.

Note: RAID/SCSI/Unsupported UDMA users:
You will be prompted to "press F6 to install any third party SCSI or RAID drivers". Most users will not have to press F6, but if you are running RAID, SCSI or unsupported UDMA controllers, then you will have to have your controller drivers on a floppy disk. If you are unsure whether you have RAID/SCSI, then simply let the CD load without pressing F6.

When completed loading files, you will be presented with the following "Windows Setup" screen, and your first option. Select "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER". DO NOT select Recovery Console.

Don't worry; Windows XP repair feature won't delete your data, installed programs, personal information, or settings. It just repairs the operating system!

Note: The system repair function will remove any updates you have previously installed that are not included on the CD. Drivers will also be reverted to their original XP versions, as well as some settings (network & performance settings may sometimes be reset to their defaults). It may be necessary to reactivate your Windows XP as well. When finished, you will have to download all of the updates from Microsoft Windows Update, because they are all replaced during repair.

1) Can't start Windows XP in safe mode.

Next, Windows Setup will find existing Windows XP installations. You will be asked to repair an existing XP installation, or install a fresh copy of Windows XP.

If no installations are found, then you will not be given the option to repair. This may happen if the data or partition on your drive is too corrupted.

Note: If you install a fresh copy, all data on that partition will be lost!

Your almost finished! Windows XP will appear to be installing itself for the first time, but it will retain all of your data and settings. Just follow the prompts, and have your CD-KEY ready if needed.

Do you have more than one system, or lost your CD-KEY? Visit the keyfinder page to retrieve your CD-KEY.

Update: Due to the proliferation of the Blaster and Welchia Worm/Virus be aware that a Repair Install will leave your system vulnerable. You can get infected within seconds. Do not go on line until you have enabled XP's firewall first.

Remember to run Windows Update! (install critical updates first)

Configuring Your Computer to Boot from CD

Many computers are not configured to boot from the CDROM. If you cannot boot from the CDROM, this is probably due to the boot order of your devices being incorrect. You can change this in the BIOS.

You enter the BIOS from the first screen you see when you turn your computer on. To enter your BIOS, most users here will press the DEL key.

Most Dell, Toshiba, Gateway, Sony & HP systems will press F2.

Compaq users will usually have to press F10.

IBM typically uses F1 or F2.

Other brands may have different keys to press to enter setup, F1, F2, Del, Tab and CTRL+S. If possible see the manual for your computer or motherboard. Also, the BIOS will usually display which button to press to "enter setup" during POST (if it flashes by too fast, press the Pause key).

When you enter the BIOS setup, you need to change the boot order. The CDROM should be setup before the Hard Drive. Each BIOS is different, but here is an example:

My AcerOne is Stuck on a Bluescreen, how do I use the internal reboot to reinstall the system?


This is a general guide and not custom to your specific model. There may be another way that only your model is capable of.
Your going to need the CD that came with the system.
If you did not receive a system disk then you will need to go to Acer or the store you purchased the computer from and buy/request a CD.
When you receive the disk
1. Put the disk into the CD/DVD Drive
2. When you boot the computer it should at some point ask if you want to boot from CD IF it does not you need to change the boot options in your bios. (When booting hit the reset keys it says to go into bios options, usually the Delete key) Find boot options/sequence. You need to set the CD drive as your boot priority. (Change nothing else, if unsure take it to a local shop and ask them to do it)
3. Select boot from CD when asked. (Usually you got to press a key)
4. Wait for windows to load files to boot
5. At this point you should see options for what you want to do. system restore, repair windows, restore from backup, along with other options.
6. Pick restore from backup, Then select the backup you want to use. (There usually is only 1 to select.)
7. Follow any on screen instruction, as it may say many diff things.
*Please be careful this is major work on a system and if not fully understood should only be performed by a professional or enthusiast.

HOW DO I RESERT TO FACTORY SETTING MY DELL DESK TOP


To reset the bios, hit F2 during POST and you can reset the defaults in there.

For Windows, insert your Windows CD/DVD and re-install windows by hitting any key when the prompt comes up and then following the directions on screen. Make sure you use the key on your computer when it asks for it after it reboots.

After installing a windows update on my advent 7113 laptop i restarted laptop and some of the keys were numbers instead of the letters that they should be.Why did this happen and how do i fix it pleas


Try going to Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore. Restore to a date prior to the time when Windows was updated. If this does not work you may have to do a system recovery, which can normally be accessed during boot by pressing the F11 key.

Let me know what happens.
