Access Control Panel; goto system information and check to see if a driver is installed for your cd rom. If not, try installing using the "add hardware" feature of Control Panel. Also make sure the cd rom drive has the power and IDE cable properly installed.

    First, make sure the IDE cable and power is properly connected to your cdrom; then access Control Panel and System Information to check the status of your cdrom; if no driver is installed, install the cdrom using the add hardware function of Control Panel. If you have the installation disc from the cdrom mfr, use it to install.

Press F11 couple of times when the computer is started and select the factory default setting.
This will make the computer to the date when the PC was purchased (Brand New).
Make sure you back up any important files or photos before you do this.

After you have done the default factory setting successfully insert the required CD'ss or DVD's to copy the operating system and the drivers for future use.

All the best!

Problem getting recovery disk


I understand that you want to reinstall the Operating System on the computer. Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the computer. To start the system recovery:
  1. Restart the computer
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
  3. When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  4. After the system recovery program has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Recovery Media.
  1. Insert the disk labeled System CD into the computer's disk drive and restart the computer.
  2. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the F12 key repeatedly.
  3. Select either CDROM or DVD as the boot device, this may vary depending on the system.
  4. When prompted for the Recovery CD, remove the System CD and insert the Recovery CD.
  5. Note: If there are multiple Recovery CDs, please insert the first Recovery CD.
  6. After the system recovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

Refer the URL for more information and for the link to order the Recovery media if required.

How do i fix ntldr is compressed on emachine press ctrl alt del to restart I stuck in this loop when I try to boot my emachine


Your Windows installation has become currupted. You may have success if you perform a Windows Repair. Alternatively you will have to format and reinstall Windows.
Obviously it would be best to perform the Windows repair, you will need to Windows installation CD.

Follow these steps to Repair Windows:
You will set your CD drive as the primary/first boot device in the BIOS.
Then insert your Microsoft Windows CD into the CD drive.
Press any key when prompted to book from CD.
The CD should execute and start up.
Now when the Blue screen appears press Enter to install Windows.
Press F8 to accept the Terms.

Now here is the Important Part:
At this blue screen you will need to press the R key to repair the selected Windows Installation.

It will look as though Windows is installing for the first time, but it is keeping all of your information.

You may want to contact a computer technician to back-up your data that you may need in case the repair is unsuccessful.

Please be sure to rate this session.

Take care!

How to restore to factory settings


  • Use a memory device such as a rewritable DVD or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings.

  • Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard and mouse. Bring up the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."

  • Navigate to "eMachines" and then "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the tab labeled "Restore," which is located at the top of the window.

  • Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and then click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default."

  • Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process.

  • Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appears on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.

    When i turn the computer on it says windows root 32 is corrupt or missing please reinstall but i cant get it to reinstall it the install menu does not pop up


    You need to re-install it using your disc not when your on Windows enable for it to install. Here are the steps to install Windows back in your system.

    1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.

      Note To boot from your Windows XP CD, the BIOS settings on your computer must be configured to do this.
    2. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD.
    3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
    4. Read the Microsoft Software License Terms, and then press F8.
    5. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows .
    6. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the Windows Setup.

    Emachines 180 desktop reinstalling windows xp


    Your trying to reinstall Windows XP from cd on your emahcine computer and from what I understand part of the way through the installation of XP you recieve a blue screen? Am I correct?
    If so then their can be a couple of things wrong here.
    One your cd drive is not reading the cd correctly try cleaning the lense on your cd drive or change the drive and use a different drive. Second your Windows XP cd is bad, screatched or smudged. Try cleaning your cd or make a copy of it on a friends machine and use the new one. If you tried all of these and you are still getting the blue screen repost for more help.

    Thanks

    NEED TO DO PC RESTORE. DO NOT HAVE REINSTALL CD. The Pc is a Emachines.


    Contact Emachines for the cd's.
    Alternatively, you can reformat the machine and reinstall the Operating System yourself.
    Alternatively to that you can have a computer store do it for you.

    Installation windows xp emachine t5082


    You must find "eMachine" XP USB drivers for your computer.
    If all USB support is "enabled" in BIOS, the conflict is with drivers.
    XP is loaded with many generic drivers, however eMachines is proprietary and requires eMachine drivers for most on-board hardware.

    Contact eMachines support to locate the drivers (if available).

    Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!

    Sound card drivers


    SOLUTION #1: If you have a driver CD that came with your eMachine, look for the audio folder on the CD. If there is a "setup" program inside this folder, then run it. SOLUTION #2: Start, Control Panel, System, Hardware, Device Manager, right click on sound device, choose Update driver, install from list, don't search, have disk, browse to the audio driver location on the driver CD, then okay it. SOLUTION #3: Download the file from the following URL, unzip it, then run the SETUP program inside the folder. http://downloads.emachines.com/drivers/audio/T1140_50_Audio.zip
