How do I save my Cyberlink?

I have a T3504 with prepackaged XP home, the factory Recovery disk and after McAffee made the system unstable too many times I made two Recovery CDs. Can't say why, but nearly a year ago System Restore stopped working and web hints don't help much.

I loaded Nero 7 Essentials with my new Memorex DVD burner and it turned out to be total garbage lugging the system down until it was useless. I did an uninstall from the disk, but Nero and Lightscribe folders still exist in my Registry. I can't burn MP3 DVDs from my Cyberlink now.

I loved Cyberlink but I didn't have Lightscribe hence the Nero Fiasco.

The questions are:
Is my cyberlink Power 2 Go messed up by software conflicts with the 'removed' Nero?

Since I couldn't find Cyberlink files on the factory recovery CD, and I have never backed up my system and system Restore is junk - is there any way to fix the cyberlink by an uninstall/reinstall and is the Cyberlink hidden on the D drive for a reinstall?

How to erase data to factory system default on emachine t3504 i t says to hit start then click all programs then click emachine but that heading isnt on list


If your computer has a recovery partition on the hard drive to as follows:
  1. Restart the computer
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.
If your model does not have a recovery partition then you were given the option to make your own recovery CD's. Unfortunately if you did not do so then you will need to contact eMachines to see if they will sell you recovery CD's. I used to sell these models and as I recall they did not come stock with a restore CD.

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.

How can i perform a factory restore on my emachine w3619 without my start up disk..my computer will not load my sims 3 game and it used to be able to i tried everything (including system restore) to fix it


ask emachines for duplicate dvds of your startup disks.
your os is Genuine Windows Vista® Home Basic
any copy of that would work, but you wouldn't have the cyberlink or other software

before doing that
you may first try checking for viruses or startup programs
and then reinstalling any game software

maybe your sims is broken. verify that it works on another machine

After reinstallion, no emachines recovery/original programs/apps


Your recovery software is usually comprised of more than one disk. You should have one windows disk in addition to the eMachines disk(s). Complete recovery requires that you use all the disks, in order to return to original state. If you are missing programs, it is because you did not use all the disks.

Option A: Go here to order a complete set of recovery disks:

https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=emachines

You will need your machine serial number to ensure you obtain the correct recovery disks; they are about 20$ plus shipping.

Option B: Use your eRecovery: Restart the computer and when it begins booting up, you have to hit repeatedly/hold down a key to enter the Recovery management menu. As for the key, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try the F10 key for starters. If it's not that one, try the F12, or the F8 key. That should get you pointed in the right direction. Just follow the screen prompts, and choose RECOVERY, not RESTORE. Also make sure you choose Recovery without disks.

Reply if you need more help.

Hope this helps.

System restore emachines T3504 disc missing, emachines no longer offers disc! computer is not that old! help! my daughter is heartbroken! i need the disk to complete a system restore.


Is their files that need to be retrieved from the computer? If you were doing a restore they would be lost. You have other options. Your best option is to just purchase a copy of windows xp and install a fresh copy of windows. you will still have to find the drivers on the internet and download and install the. All of this work should really be done by someone who is computer savvy but its really not that difficult.
Let me know if you have other questions.
Thanks,
Lee

Couldnt find the sound card driver for emachine T3504


your drivers are available here : http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T3504
make sure you dowbload the drivers correct for the operating system you're using as both xp and vista are there. download them to your desktop so you can find them to install.. install..reboot if prompted..
also make sure to remove any entries in the device manager that have a yellow ! or ? next to them before installing new drivers..
The device manager can be found by clicking START-CONTROL PANEL-- double click SYSTEM-select the HARDWARE tab at the top- click on device manager..
