First try the "Restore" function to the earliest date. If that doesn't work reinstall using the install cd. I tried to lok it up for you but you need the series as well as the model number. See link below:

Emachines 3240 windows xp home edition need to reset to factory settings no disc

Did this come with a recovery disc and you lost it? If it didn't come with one you may have a recovery partition that you can boot to. If there IS a recovery partition you should see a message on bootup that will tell you what button to push to startup to the recovery partition. If you DON'T have a recovery partition your only options are a clean install with a Windows installation disc or to call emachines (gateway) to see if they have a disc to send you.

You can contact them by following the instructions here:

How do i reset my password for my belkin router

Hi Andrew,
If you have not entered a password before during the setup, you wouldn't need one and could leave the password field blank and still get in to the router.
If you have entered a password and forgotten it, then you'll have to do a factory rest. Unfortunately this will wipe all the data and put it back to factory status.

Setup steps:

  1. Locate the reset hole on the router. The button will be on the back or side of the router.
  2. Leave the router powered on.
  3. Use a paperclip (or similar) to press and hold in the reset button for 10 seconds.
  4. Remove the paperclip.
  5. Wait approximately one minute for the router to restart.
  6. The settings for the router have now been reset back to their default.

There is a photo on the belkin website which will help if you cannot find the reset hole:

Do you mean a complete factory reset....if this is the case you must open the box, find the bios chip and beside it you should find its jumpers. The jumper must be taken off and stay off for at least a minute....replace as it was.....close the box and reboot, hey presto back to factory rest.

Emachine 3240 possible power problem?

I would suggest try to swap the power supply out with another known good power supply.

I've seen where even though the light on the motherboard is lit, it is not getting enough power to start the machine up, especially if you have a higher end video card connected to it.
