The reason when you boot from DVD, then it just goes blank is because it is unbootable or corrupt

you might want to try a diffrent recovery dvd disc

I have a eMachine t5246. My hard drive went bad, very bad, couldn't get it to even get wiped out so. my eMachine disc won't start up. It is the operating disc but every time it says install and...


If the hard drive failed you will first need to replace it with a working hard drive. One that is done, power on the computer with the recovery disc is the drive and enter setup. It should say something like press F9 or F10 for Setup. Look through the menus for "Boot Order", make sure your CD/DVD drive is above hard drive. Save the changes and reboot, you should get a message "Press any key to boot to disc" or something similar, do so, and follow the prompts to re-install windows.

Computer won't boot stuck in Error RecoveryScreen won't go any further


You should be able to do a clean install of Windows. Just insert the installation disc and press any key when indicated. Optical drive needs to be the first boot option. Go into BIOS and change it is not.
As for disc, you have to use the same Windows version as indicated on the MS Product Key sticker, because of the serial number.

Unmountable boot disk error on blue screen


first, recover your files. You will need to use some data recovery program like asoftech data recovery. you can download it from
http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/Back-Up-and-Recovery/Asoftech-Data-Recovery.shtml

I've had to use it many times in the past but in this case you need to plug that drive into another system as an external drive or slave drive and run the software from there. It will rebuild the drive and hopefully recover the files.

After you get back your files, you can then format the drive and reinstall your system.

My acer aspire am5100 desktop needs a recovery to wipe the hard drive. I have the discs, but when they are placed in the drive, the system doesn't recognize them and starts up normally. It basically...


With the first recovery disc in in the drive, and starting from a powered off machine, press the power button and then press quickly and repeatedly on the F12 key. The boot menu should appear. When it does, make sure that CD/DVD/Optical whatever drive is highlighted. If it's not, use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight it. When it's highlighted, hit the enter key.

The second you see a white message on a black screen that says...."Press any key to boot from CD" hit a key and begin to follow all the prompts.

You should be ok after that.

HOW TO USE EMACHINES RECOVERY DISCS


Turn your computer on.
When you see "Press <BLAH> to enter BIOS SETUP mode", press the <BLAH> key.

Change the "boot-order" to select your CD/DVD drive as the "first" boot device.

Put the first recovery-disk into your CD/DVD drive.

Save-and-exit from BIOS SETUP.

Your computer will "boot" from the media in the CD/DVD drive, and thus will start the "recovery" process.
