Hi there
If the operating system is that degraded and is asking for recovery, you have no choice but to purchase an operating system like XP or Vista and reinstall the system. Once you have your new OS post back if you need any more advice getting it installed

Good luck

If Windows is purchased separetly;
Call Microsoft and get order a Disk for approx. $10
If shipped with the computer; Call eMachines and check if they can send you a back up disk.
If you have your product key, you can also lend a CD from your friends or family and use your product key while installing.

Your hard drive has gone bad. You will need to replace the hard drive, and reinstall the operating system with the system recovery discs you created when you first purchased the computer.

It is possible for the Windows operating system on your eMachines computer to have a critical failure. If the operating system on your eMachines computer is failing, you can use your recovery discs to restore your computer. Recovery discs come with your purchase of an eMachine, and contain your operating system and all your basic drivers. You can recover your eMachines W series in about an hour.

Turn off your computer and press "F8" to enter the BIOS menu. Tab over to the "Boot Sequence" or "Boot Order" menu. Move your optical drive to the top of the list. Press "F11" to exit and save changes. Insert your recovery disc into your optical drive, then restart your computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Select the "Full Recovery" option from your recovery disc menu. Allow the recovery procedure to complete. Hope this helps.

I tried to Reboot my pc with System Disc and it is asking for a second disc. I have 1 of 1 system disc. what is disc 2


It may be a content disc. One probably holds your operating system, the other holds your preinstall programs.

I have a emachine desktop W3115. It lost the network adapter and does not recognize the internet. I bought a OPERATING SYSTEM DISC Dual Core Windows XP Media Center Edition but that did not fix the network...


If you still have the original eMachine software as your desktop, go to Start > system Recovery > Create my Drivers and Application CD disk.

This will create a CD that will contaon all the drivers for your eMachine.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

I lost my d recovery partions and i dont have erecovery option or nti backup.it under warranty and i dont feel i should have to pay for the disc to fix it


Unfortunately if you did not create the restore disks you will either need to purchase them from eMachines (usually around $30) or buy/download an operating system and install it yourself using the drivers located on the eMachines website for this model.

Is there a system recovery disk for the emachine ET1161-07 desktop pc?


If you bought the computer new and did not receive a recovery disc with it then the recovery software can be reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer.
The steps for re-installation:

  • Restart the computer
  • When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  • When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  • After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

If you bought the computer used try the above method. If that fails then it came with a recovery disc but you didn't get it with the computer. The only thing you can do is contact eMachines support for help or purchase a new copy of Windows and reinstall it with that.
I hope this helps. If not and you need any help with reinstalling a new version of windows please let me know.

A DVD CD burner came installed in my Emachine computer purchased Nov 2007 and runs Vista Just want simple instructions on how to use the burner. Thanks


To burn files onto a disc, all you need to do is drag and drop files onto your drive under My Computer. When you have put all the files there, put the disc you want to burn in there, go to My Computer, double click the drive, then go to File/Burn these files to my disc. If you wish to burn music/video CDs or DVDs I would suggest using more of a full fledged burning suite such as Nero.
