    When you did system restore it might have restored it to a point where it did not have any of your files that it use to. This means that it might have restored to its original factory installation point

Hello,

If you only your files to be copied in the other or any storage disk then you can remove the hard disk of your machine and then attached it to the other functional machine. in there you can browse and copy all the important files. after copying all your files then you can take back the hard drive to your non functional machine and then install new operating system. documentation found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/316941

tell me if something wrong with your system when applying the solution.

I need to restore my compter to facotory using system recovery and I don't have the disk. I have a Emachines EL1850G-42W


Hi christoph73030

You have three choices..
1...Try to do a system restore to an earlier date.
This will take your comuter back to an earlier time when it was operating good, pick one of the darkened dates before your troubles started..
To do a restore: Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
2...Buy a restore disk from Emachines
3...Buy and Install a new operating system...
Sorry for the bad news
Please take time to rate me

Can i use a compaq system restore disk on an emachine? I don't have the boot up disks that i was supposed to create when i got this emachine, but i do have some old compaq ones, both use windows xp os...


You cannot use the restore disks from those other systems to do a restore. Even though you may be able to extract the XP install files, you won't be able to authenticate it because the disk is OEM and reads data off of the system it is supposed to install on.

If you have an emachine, contact them for the restore disk, or search the internet for a restore disk for your model. Some people sell them, even on ebay.

Card reader not working


Try restoring windows to a date prior to the date your bubby had done something.

If you are not successful then repair your windows using windows repair disk. If you don't have a repair disk; boot your disk from a windows installation cd and continue installation till you reach windows terms and conditions. There press F8 --as needed -- and machine starts copying some more files. Then after the restart you will get an option to repair. DO THE REPAIRING FROM HERE ONLY. Don't press "r" on the first repair option you get. Your problem will be solved.

Hello,

If you have the original restore disk you can use that, if not - what operating system is it? Windows/Linux? XP, 2k, etc? I can guide you how to fix the problem.
