Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
After my cousin changed the way it starts up (regular blue screen to the black one with only a box, and no avatar) it started rebooting every time I tried to log on. If the only way for this problem to be solved is to use the recovery disk then, 1) is there any other way to recover the information on it, and do 2) Where can i get another recovery disk, I lost mine.
Try rebooting in Safe Mode (generally by pressing F8 as it comes up from a cold reboot). This will let you reset the PC to a date previous to when your cousin changed settings. You won't lose any documents or photos, it just puts system settings back to that point in time. Safe mode will look a little different than you're used to but that will be okay when done. After it comes up, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Pick a calendar date that is in bold as this will have restore points for you to choose from. Make sure the radio button is picked that says restore my computer to an earlier time, click okay and let the system do its thing. This will take a few minutes. Let me know if this works for you or if you have any other questions.
