Factory restore


If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.


It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.


However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.


Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive 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, mouse or monitor.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."



Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab.



Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and 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 appear 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.



hope this helps

Emachine, w3050, restore os without discs


Impossible unless there is a recovery partition on your hard drive.

It's best to just reinstall windows. Look at the side of your computer for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker. It will tell you which operating system you have and it will show you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers). Borrow an Operating System Disc from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker that is the same as what is listed on your COA Sticker and install it. Make sure you get the Product Key Code from their computer if it is not listed on the Disk. Sometimes when it comes to activation it will want the key code from your sticker and sometimes it wants the one from the disk that is being installed.

You'll be much better off with a clean install of windows than having a factory restore and all the bloated software you don't want.

I need to press a key on my keyboard to start factory recovery


Hi and welcome to Fixya!

In order to revert the machine back to its factory setting, you need to have the recovery disk (if you don't have it, call the warranty support line of e-machines so they can provide it to you).

To restore Windows from your recovery discs, you will need to
insert the first backup disc and enable the F12 Boot Menu via the BIOS Setup
Utility.
1 Turn on your computer and insert the first system recovery disc into the
optical disc drive. Restart your computer.
2 During startup when the eMachines logo shows, press the F2 key to enter
BIOS Setup, where you can set system parameters.
3 Use the left and right arrow keys to select the Main submenu.
4 Use the up and down arrow keys to select F12 Boot Menu.
5 Use the F5 or F6 key to change F12 Boot Menu to Enabled.
6 Press the ESC key to enter the Exit submenu, press the ENTER key to Exit
Saving Changes. Press the ENTER key again to select Yes. The system will
reboot.
7 After rebooting, when the eMachines logo shows, press the F12 key to
open the Boot Menu. Here you can select which device to boot from.
8 Use the arrow keys to select the IDE1*, then press the ENTER key. Windows
will be installed from the recovery disc.
9 Insert the second recovery disc when prompted, then follow the onscreen
prompts to complete the restore.
10 Remove the recovery disc from the optical drive once the restore is
complete. Do this before rebooting your computer.

Hope this helps!
