Sr1750nx xp/media edition..lost recovery disc in my move

I lost the recovery disc that I made when I bought this computer and would like to make a new recovery disc just in case I need to use one.
My computer wont allow me to make one saying one has been made already. Is there any way to make a new recovery disc?
Please help me...I'm a vacuum-tube brain in a micro-chip world! Thanks in advance...Mike in Minneapolis, Mn

You can restore/recover your system to its factory settings by using F10 at boot
(this option only works with the original Hard drive)
after the restore is complete, the option to remake the disk will be available again

***Make sure to copy your personal data to a USB or disk before you do the recovery

Some programs that will help you do a recovery disk is Norton Ghost, Acronis, and some others.
I recomend you to use Norton Ghost thou that one is very easy to use.


Good luck to you

I have a emachine desktop W3115. It lost the network adapter and does not recognize the internet. I bought a OPERATING SYSTEM DISC Dual Core Windows XP Media Center Edition but that did not fix the network...


If you still have the original eMachine software as your desktop, go to Start > system Recovery > Create my Drivers and Application CD disk.

This will create a CD that will contaon all the drivers for your eMachine.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Hey,

you will need a copy of the windows installation cd or the recovery media that comes with the computer.

Ones you have that you have to reinstall windows or restore from the recovery media to get your computer working normally again.

You can also take the computer to a local professional who can install it for you if you don't have the disc.


Let me know if you need anything else.


Thanks,
Ekse

Use a memory stick to back up all your programs you have installed and then format you computet.
or download or buy a new program for Explorer or get Firefox it is a much better and you can download it for free. Remember to create back up files on an old laptop or a memory stick just in case of any loses during formating the computer... The same is advisable is creating an new account.

O S disc, Toshiba L35-S1054


No unfortunately XP home and XP media edition are different but not completely. The only difference is the entertainment factor like TV control and live recording and pausing , viewing photos etc and media center is considered to be a bit more secure than XP home but i find this just a wrong perception of people as i also have XP home and also had media center, makes no difference at all regarding security but yes if u want much more features or facilities as far as entertainment is considered media center edition is far more good than XP home.......
IF U INSTALL XP HOME THAT DOES NOT MEAN U INSTALLED XP MEDIA CENTER
Now there are 2 ways to solve ur problem
1. Either get a NEW disc from microsoft or any computer shop for media center and then install it.
OR
2. Install XP home on your system and then try to put the CD for media center , it will update XP to media center . In this way u will get the media center back and u will also not lose any previous stored data.
NOTE: In both the above cases u will have to get the CD for Media center......
Wat matters is losing the data that is already stored on your system.
BUT AGAIN I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND HERE IS THAT INSTALLING XP HOME WILL NOT GET BACK U TO MEDIA CENTER AS THEY ARE DIFFERENT BUT IT MAKES NOT DIFFERENCE WHETHER IT IS XP HOME OR MEDIA CENTER AS ONLY DIFFERENCE IS ENTERTAINMENT>>> IN THE WORLD THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE USING XP HOME THAN MEDIA CENTER>>>

I would recommend to cont. with XP home
