Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have a dell d9150 media center and have application and driver discs but never had a windows xp disc. Is it still possible to reinstall windows xp without that disc.? Failing that, would a system restore to original state be a viable alternative? Many thanks, Randy
To format your hard-drive then re-install Windows? Yes, you would need one.
If you're attempting to rid yourself of a virus, you can definitely attempt a system restore. However, most modern viruses are smart, and the first thing they will do is integrate themselves into the system restore files. If however you have a system-restore disk (CD-ROM) which came with the computer, those will obviously not be infected (nor will they be infected) and can be used to restore the system to the state it was in when you first turned it on.
Let me know if I can help you further.
