Question about E-Machines T5082 PC Desktop
Restart your computer in safe mode. To start in "Safe Mode", power on your computer and immediately after the BIOS loads, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, you may get a "keyboard error" message. If this happens, restart the computer and try again waiting a few seconds longer to begin tapping the F8 key. When you get the Advanced Options Menu, use the arrow keys on the keyboard, select Safe mode and then press Enter.
After Windows loads in safe mode your screen will be different and it will say "safe mode" in each corner.
Put your original eMachines Recovery CD in the drive.
Click "start" and then open the "control panel".
Double click the "system" icon (looks like a little computer and is usually near the bottom) and then select the "hardware" tab at the top. Click on the button that says "Device Manager", scroll down if necessary until you find "system devices". Click on the "plus" sign to expand the list and look for a yellow exclamation point. Right click that entry and select "update driver" from the dropdown list.
When the Hardware Update Wizard loads, highlight the selection that reads "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)" and click Next. The next page should default to "Search for the best driver in these locations" and a check mark should be in the box that says "Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM....)". Make sure these are checked and click Next. Windows should then find the appropriate driver. Doubleclick the driver name and then click Finish.
Now shutdown and restart your computer normally. If this does not work, your computer most likely has faulty hardware and you will need to take it back to your dealer for repair or replacement.
