How to restore emachines E732ZG

When I turn it on, we get an 'e' on the screen and down to bottom says 'press F2 to setup'. If I press nothing, it eventually goes to a black screen and the cursor is at the top left, but not blinking - I cannot type anything. If I press F2 I get to the setup, I set that to 'default settings', but still nothing. Have taken battery out for 5 minutes, re-inserted and still nothing! Help!

If you have a disk in the dvd, remove it and try to start. If that fails press F8 while starting and see if you can start in safe mode. If that fails , you will need to insert an operating system disk , and when you get the disk info loaded on the screen, type fixmbr . Hopefully one of these will work

SOURCE: Need to restore to factory default but my lappy gives me a blank black screen with a blinking underscore on the top left of the screen.

There might be one step you could try to restore the system to factory specifications. When you turn the laptop on, and you see the Acer splash screen, press the Alt-F10 keys together at the same time, and this should hopefully bring the Acer eRecovery system up, provided that your computer has the built-in recovery partition. If it asks for a password, try using the default of "000000". If that doesn't work, then a password has been entered into the system, and there is no way to reset it, however there is a way to find out what the password is, however it does require the use of the Ubuntu Operating System (which is free to download, here)

Hold the power button down and let it fully power off then boot it back up. If you get a prompt saying Windows did not shut down normally, select Last Known Good Configuration.

That blinking cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that Windows is missing - its most critical, core files have been corrupted beyond repair. The only thing you can do is to reinstall using the recovery cd or your own Windows install disk.

How do i change boot order on emachine t3604


You will need to change the boot order in the bios set-up.
Turn your computer off, and turn it n again (alternatively Restart it) These things may be initiated by clicking the Windows button at the bottom left of tour screen, and from the shut down drop down menu selecting the appropriate option) As your computer is starting up, and the Emachines logo appears on the screen
"Press the "Tab" key repetitatively: If that fails to take you into the BIOSsetup, repeat and try either the "Escape," "Delete," or "F2" keys instead of the Tab key.
Once in the BIOS setu[p, Look through the options until see Boot order, and then change that to CD first, HD 2nd. Exit the BIOS setup with save changes option. Done.

Restored to factory default cd/rom dvd drive not installed driver not found


This is likely a BIOS problem.
If you restored factory defaults, the BIOS may have reset to a default configuration as well, one that may not include a setup for your CD drive. Assuming this is what happened, here are some steps to try to get it working again. Note that the pictures are from my computer, and what you will actually see will depend on yours, but it will often be similar.
1. Shut down your system if turned on.
2. Immediately after turning on your computer, look for instructions for 'Setup' or 'Configuration'. There will be the name of a key to press; often this is one of the F keys, such as F2, F5, or F12, or the DEL or ESC key. It varies from computer to computer. You must press the setup key before the screen advances. If you miss the prompt, simply reset your computer and try again. This will open the BIOS menu. hyblademin.png

3. Look for 'Drive Settings', 'Drive Configuration', or otherwise a block of settings referring to "Primary," "Secondary," "Master," and "Slave" drives, and use the keyboard to navigate the menus to get there. Be sure you read the instructions at the bottom of the screen so that you know which buttons to press. hyblademin_0.png


4. Again paying attention to the controls at the bottom of the screen, make sure each drive is set to AUTO. If that setting isn't available, try setting either the Primary or Secondary (whichever one shows no drive) to CD or CD/DVD.
5. Press the ESC button or see the instructions at the bottom of the screen to learn how to exit your BIOS. Make sure you select Save/Exit from the list of choices. If you accidentally change any other setting, simply choose Exit (do not save), and you will be put back at the boot screen. You may then try again.
I hope this helps. Good luck!

How can I reset my emachine w3653 to factory setting? Unfortunately, I forgot my password. help


Hi! Normally the emachine came with an eRecovery Disk that you can use to restore the PC back to factory settings. To do that follow this steps:
  1. Press F2 to enter BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the eMachines logo is being displayed).
  2. Using the keyboard arrow keys, arrow over to Boot.
  3. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to CDROM.
  4. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the System CD.
  5. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  6. Press "F10", then press "Enter" to save the changes and reboot the system.
  7. The computer will boot from the eMachines Recovery Media, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.

Emachince t3604 with vista wont boot just a blank screen tried to get bios screen safe mode etc. but nothing shows on the monitor. n e advice?


Make sure --- turn power off, leave off for 30 seconds. Power up again, holding the F2 key down. This WILL take your eMachines into Setup (BIOS). If it doesn't then your keyboard is most likely defective. If it does get you to setup, press F10 and Enter. Reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del and this time hold the F8 key down ... just hold it down till something happens, choose Start in Safe Mode with Network Support. Again if F8 doesn't work probly says Keyboard is bad. This is for whatever Operating System you are using.

Emonster 550 wont load operating system wont read disk nothing can you help me please?


Go into the BIOS (watch your POST screen as you turn the computer on for instructions if you don't know how to get in there, it will say something like "press F2 to enter setup") and set your computer to boot from your CD drive. Put your restore or XP disk in the CD drive and reboot.

Can not Boot from OnBoard SATA Hard drive.....it keeping looping...


Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F12>.
The Boot Device Menu appears, listing all available boot devices. Each device has a number next to it.
At the bottom of the menu, enter the number of the device that is to be used for the current boot only.

If this works and you want to change the setting permanently do the following:
Turn on (or restart) your computer.
When F2 = Setup, F12 = Boot Menu appears in the upper-right corner of the screen, press <F2>.
Use the arrow keys to highlight the Boot Sequence menu option and press <Enter> to access the menu.
NOTE: Write down your current boot sequence in case you want to restore it.
Press the up- and down-arrow keys to move through the list of devices.
Press the spacebar to enable or disable a device (enabled devices have a checkmark).
Press plus (+) or minus (–) to move a selected device up or down the list.
