If you are having difficulties with installation the problems could be a number of things. Faulty Optical drive (CD or DVD) Faulty hard drive or a faulty recovery partition. The failed hard drive is most likely in your case. To test the hard drive you should get a HDD management suite from someone like Seagate. This will allow you to check the physical functioning of the drive and its ability to read and write.

SOURCE: Need to reload windows xp on Emachines PC

Yes all you have to do is.........

Turn off the Computer
Turn back on and Press F11 repeatedly when the message "Press F11 to start recovery" is displayed.
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:

Full System Restore (with Backup): This options will move all Hard Disk contents to the "c:\My Backup" directory and install a new copy of Windows. This option preserves your existing data files, however all applications and settings will need to be reinstalled. This option requires 4GB of free Hard Disk space for the new OS.

Alway suggest backing up your data before you do any recovery

Ok, first blets try and use the eRecovery program.

When you turn the system on, and it displays either the ACER logo or black screen with white writing, press F2 or Del to enter setup. It should display what to press in the bottom left corner of the screen.

This will open the BIOS settings. There should be a tab at the top called Main, select it. Somewhere on the list there should be something called D2D Recovery. Highlight it, and make sure it's Enabled. Now, while it's highlited, it will display what keys you need to press to start the recovery program. This is usually Alt+F10. Now save your settings and exit.

The system will now reboot. When the ACER logo or black screen with writing appears, press the keys that you saw in the BIOS. The Acer eRecovery program should now start. Follow the on screen instructions.

Hope this works, let me know

I would suggest you to follow these methods.

Method 1

Last known good configuration
It's a Windows startup option that uses the most recent system settings that worked correctly. Every time you turn your computer off and Windows shuts down successfully, important system settings are saved in the registry. If a problem occurs, you can restart your computer using those settings. For example, if a new driver for your video card is causing problems, or an incorrect registry setting is preventing Windows from starting correctly, you can restart your computer using Last Known Good Configuration.
1.Remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer by clicking the Start button, clicking the arrow next to the Shut Down button, and then clicking Restart.
2.Do one of the following:
·If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you'll need to try again by shutting down and restarting your computer.
·If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system you want to start, and then press F8.
3.On the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration (advanced), and then press Enter.
4.If your computer has more than one operating system installed, use the arrow keys to highlight the operating system that you want to start by using Last Known Good Configuration, and then press Enter. Windows will then resume starting normally.
Method 2
Chkdsk (Chkdsk.exe) is a command-line tool that checks volumes for problems. The tool then tries to repair any that it finds.
1.Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on Command prompt.
6. Type the command chkdsk and press enter
Method 3
Offline system restore.
1. Boot from the DVD
2. Select the Language
3. Click on "Repair your Computer" on the Install now screen
4. Click next on the System Recovery Options screen
5. Click on System Restore.
6. Choose the date to which you want to restore

How to Create a Windows 7 System Repair Disc:
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/2083-system-repair-disc-create.html


"This will show you how to create a Windows 7 system repair disc to use to boot to the system recovery options if you don't have a Windows installation disc, can't find your

Windows installation disc, or can't access the recovery options provided by your computer manufacturer."

or

If you do not have access to either disc: Windows 7 - Repair Disc download
http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/


a) Insert the Windows 7 System Repair DVD or Installation DVD and reboot.


b) Select the correct keyboard input method and click 'Next'.


Note: If you are using the Windows7 Install DVD then at the 'Install Now' prompt (Do not pick the Install


Now option) instead choose the 'Repair your computer' option located in the lower left of the dispay.


c) The System Repair tool will search for a valid operating system and will report that "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options. Do you want to apply repairs and restart your computer?"


d) Click 'Repair and restart' and reboot again to the Windows 7 System Repair environment.


e) Click 'Next' at the keyboard selection prompt and when the 'System Recovery Options' screen appears verify that the "Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows" is selected.
Note that on your Dual Boot system there now should be only one operating system listed. Click the 'Next' button.


f) Now from the menu list select the 'Command Prompt' option.


g) At the DOS prompt type the following three commands:


bootrec.exe /fixmbr


bootrec.exe /fixboot (may return an 'Eliment not found' message)


bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd


h) Close the command prompt window and click the 'Startup Repair' option.


i) The repair process may take some time, so wait until the process completes at which point you will see two messages "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" and "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".


These messages are the result of the radical changes made by removing the other drive. Ignore the Send/Don't send options.


J) Close this message window by clicking on the X in the upper right corner of the Send/Don't send window. Next click on the 'View advanced options for system recovery and support' option and from the main menu once again click 'Startup Repair'.


This time the repair process may only that a few seconds and when prompted "Startup Repair could not detect a problem", click 'Finish' and run the 'Startup Repair' option one more time, click 'Finish', and then remove the System Repair DVD and click 'Restart'. Reboot the computer.


hope this helps

Mi notebook acer aspire 3000LCi the only do is a an upper and i dont have a recovery disk


When you restore your system back to the new factory settings, it will wipe your hard drive clean and do a fresh install of the operating system with the original factory setting.


To start this process, unplug all extra devices from your computer

(printers, external hard drives, etc.) as these can interfere with the system restore.


Starting with Windows XP, most systems with issued a system recovery disk in case of any problems with the factory installation.


Check the documentation and disks that came with your computer to determine if you have one of these system disks.


If you do have a copy of this disk, place it in your CD/DVD drive and restart your computer.

If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions.


Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words.

Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings.


Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation.

Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again.


Restart your computer to complete the restore.


3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk.


Unplug all external devices and restart your computer.

When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times.


This will bring up the system restore menu.

Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings


hope this helps

Hi,
I would suggest you first try the Start Up Repair for Windows XP.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.
2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.
3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done choose "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER"4. Press F8 to agree to the License Agreement 5. Choose "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R"
Windows will then start the repair process. Do not worry all your data and settings will be retained.

If above solution does not work then,Use Recovery Console.
1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.2.

On the Recovery Console, choose the installation you would like to log on to (for example c:\Windows)5.

Computer should restart. No need to boot from CD at this point. You can take out the Windows installation CD.
