If I replace my hard drive do I have to re install windows 7 from using my product key sticker which is found under my laptop ?


Yes you have to reinstall Windows 7, because the operating system resides on the Hard Drive. You can certainly try using the product key under the laptop. I also believe that if you have the recovery media and want to reinstall on the SAME computer with a different hard drive it should work. It is possible that you will not have to register again.

MY EMACHINE T3306 is saying cd/dvd isnt present in my system. Im trying install windows vista. need help!!!!!


This could be due to a missing or corrupt driver. To verify (assuming you are using XP), right click "My Computer" select "Manage". On the left-hand side of the window, select "Device Manager". Check tosee if your installed device or any device for that matter is located under the heading CD/DVD drives. If there are no entries and you do have a CD/DVD drive installed on the computer, try restarting to see if it will reinstall the device. If this does not work, the drive may not be connected or is bad. Turn off the computer, open the computer and you will see a ribbon cable coming out of the back of the drive. Verify that this cable is plugged into both the drive and motherboard securely (the slots will look like long, slim rectangular boxes with tiny metal rods standing up inside of them). If the drive is securely connected and the machine does not see the device when turned on, the drive is probably bad. If the device manager does have an entry for the drive and there is a question mark next to it, this means the driver for the drive is missing or corrupt. I have checked the emachines website and they do not have drivers for CD/DVD drive for your model. You will have to check the drives manufacturer's website to see if they have a driver for you drive.

I was trying to create the Recovery Management disk but everytime I try to burn the CD it keeps ejecting. I would really like it if you could provide some help. I recently bought this E-Machine computer...


Welcome to Fixya

Please see procedure below on how to create recovery disk. Let me know if smae thing will happen.

  • 1

    Click the "Start" icon on the Windows Vista home screen. Select "eMachines," then click "eMachines Recovery Management." The eMachines Recovery Management program opens.

  • 2

    Click "Create Factory Default Disc." The program will tell you how many discs you will need. Make sure the correct optical drive is selected, then insert a blank disc into that drive. Click "Start" to begin the burning process.

  • 3

    Remove the disc when it is finished burning and label it "Recovery CD 1." Insert the next the next blank disc if one is required. Click "OK" to begin burning the next disc. Repeat this step until all of the discs have been created and labeled. Close the eMachines Recovery Management program, insert the system CD that came with the laptop and restart the laptop.

  • 4

    Press "F12" repeatedly when the eMachines logo is displayed on the screen to be redirected to the Boot menu. Select the optical drive, then press "Enter."

  • 5

    Insert Recovery CD 1 when you are prompted to insert the recovery disc. The eMachines Recovery Management program will open.

  • 6

    Click the "Restore" tab in the list on the left side of the eMachines Recovery Management program window, then select "Completely Restore System to Factory Defaults." The computer automatically restarts and the recovery process begins. Insert any additional recovery discs as requested. The computer will reboot automatically when the laptop has been recovered to its original factory default settings, and you will be taken to the Windows Setup screen.

    Cd draiver problems


    Windows 2000 and XP and Vista and 7 have the correct device-drivers for CD-ROM devices.

    What are the symptoms of your problem?
    What error-messages are produced?

    Is it just one CD-ROM disk that is giving you the problem?
    Have you tried that disk in another computer?

    I cannot open cd's on my emachine 4260. Can you help? The discs have data on them (Knitting patterns)


    It could be a proiblem with the cd-rom drive or the computer. You can try and run a cd lens cleaning kit in the drive to try and clean the lens. Also try using a different SATA or ATA cable for the drive depending on which one it has(the cable could be bad). I would take out the cd-rom drive and try installing it into another computer to verify if the drive is working. If the drive acts the same in a different computer then replace the drive. If it does not then there might be a hardware problem with the e-machine motherboard.

    Unable to rip music with Windows Media Player 11 and Creative Labs CD5223E


    I had this CD Rom drive in my older PC (200 MHz). I was able to rip audio CD's to MP3 with no problem. I used the program Cool Edit Pro. I would look to see if it's a setting with your sound card. Check to see if there are any settings that select the recording source. There has to be a path set up to record from the CD rom. With cables, you might also try taking the audio out from the sound card and feeding that into the audio in port on the sound card.
