I have been looking for a W3650 recovery disk for quite some time. Acer says they won''t even sell one because of microsoft regulation on XP.

Bummer

I CAN save off user files, Wipe the disk and install Ubuntu 10,4 (Long term Support).

But I'll wait to see if I can beg, borrow someone else's recovery DVD

One option is to run virus removal software in windows safe mode which is started by pressing the F8 key when starting up the computer. I suggest running an online scan such as trend micro housecall at housecall.trendmicro.com/ . This will probably remove the virus. Also, is there important data on the hard drive that she will need? If that is the issue, there are other ways to copy files from the hard drive without actually copying the virus. Let me know exactly what you want to do? If you just want to run the recovery, but lose everything that was on the hard drive, use the F11 and it will completely refresh your computer to how it was when you got it. The discs aren't necessary as the recovery section is on the Hard Drive.

    I have the same computer with a similar issue. However, pushing F11 pulls up the restore and it tells me to put in cd/dvd 1. I don't have a cd/dvd 1 .
    Any ideas?

Trying to restore emachine to factory settings.. When I go to emachines recovcery management, I get something saying "Empowering Technology is not ready. try again Later"


This is usually a sign that the partition on your hard drive that the recovery media is located in is corrupt. 3 reasons for this:
  1. bad recovery partition from the factory (bad image)
  2. Virus or spyware corrupted files to prevent usage which would prevent you from removing the problem with a recovery.
  3. Hard Drive issues (physical sections of the drive going bad.)
If you created recovery media, use those to recover your system. If you didn't, you may have to purchase recovery media from gateway for your model to recover the computer.

While it may cost you $30 to $50 dollars for the recovery media, it is a lot cheaper than the alternative of getting a tech to try to repair the partition or track down the virus or spyware.

The other advantage of recovery media is if the problems you were experiencing are hard drive related, you can put a replacement drive in and use those recovery disks to get your system working again.

(1) Go to start menu(2) Click on all programs(3) click on Emachine(4) click on Emachine recovery management(5) Click on restore on the bar across the top(6) click on restore to system factory default
Some emachines can be restored by pressing ALT+F10, but not sure on your model. Give it a try if you can't restore it to factory defaults using Emachine recovery management.

I need a recovery CD for eMachine T6534...my D drive got viruses and corrupted my recovery data


Recovery disks cost about £15, check what version of windows you have, you may be able to download that version of windows from a torrent site and use your own COA key to activate it.

Remove the emachine/PC ANGEL RECOVERY SOFTWARE


PC angel isn't installed as such it uses the desktop.ini to load its software.

desktop.ini is used to by windows to customise the view of individal folders in windows.

if you know how go to command prompt
type in;
attrib -h -r -s -a c:\folder\*.* /d /s
( replace c:\folder with the drive/folder of the protected folder )
next type in
del c:\folder\desktop.ini
( Again replace c:\folder with the drive/folder of the protected folder)

Bye bye protection for that folder
