Hi there.
If you don't have the option of hitting F12 to change the boot order to the CD/DVD just as the computer starts up then you will have to enter the bios to change the boot order.
Restart the machine and hit either Del or Esc to enter the bios, look for the boot order and set the CD/DVD as first boot device, hit F10 and exit the bios, the computer will restart and you should now be able to boot from the CD/DVD.
Please post back with the results and if you need anymore help.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

How do I SET BACK TO FACTOR SETTINGS WHEN THE MONITOR IS ASKING TO INSERT DISK 3 AND I DONT HAVE IT.


Hi
I have found a manual for your machine here:
https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/www.mrcdn.com/pdf/emachines/emachines-e627-owner-s-manual.pdf
and am assuming that you followed the instructions for making the back-up disks when you got the machine. The Recovery programme is described in detail on pages 23 and following. However it only refers to 2 disks the OS and Drivers & Apps. Did you use 3 disks when you made the restore disks, if so you really need that 3rd disk. If you didn't then you shouldn't need a third disk.Does restarting the machine work, or does it return to wanting third disk? If the former you are obviously OK and can use updates to get all the relevant updates for your machine. Otherwise the only other option is to get the disk from e-machines and use these to return to factory settings.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How to restore emachines E732ZG


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

Im trying to get my pc to go to its original settings factort restore


The only way to restore your computer to factory setting with all the software/bloatware as it came with your computer the first day you start it up, you will need the factory restore disk that came with the computer if one is provide, if not usually with e-machine product, which doesn't provide you with a factory restore disk, you will have to create one yourself using a dvd-r. Usually you will have to go the the emachine recovery/back up management option in your menu programs and use that program to make the factory restore disk, after making that disc, you will need to insert the disc, and shuit down the computer and restart it. It will prompt you to follow direction once the factory restore disk is boot up. Follow the directions and you should be good to go. If there isn't a recovery managment program or a factory restore disk provided, you will need to contact emachine up.... usually they can send you factory restore disk for a small fee.

How do i use my recovery disk? i put disk 1 in and then restarted the computer ad nothing happened.


Hi,

Before you try to restore the computer with CD, I would advise to try to restore through partion you can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Altgr" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Altgr+f10 or Alt+F10 (try both), it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

If the above steps fails, then try with Recovery CD. to do so, insert the System Disk (CD1), turn Off the computer, now as soon as you turn ON the computer keepon tapping F12, it will give an option for CD/DVDROM, select CD/DVD ROM or USB DVDROM and follow the onscreen instructions.

Thanks and regards,

I have an emachine model# W3609. It's very slow


Back up all of your photos, documents, folders, files, favorites (bookmarks) and anything else you would like to keep and reinstall after the system recovery. Use a CD, DVD, flash drive, MP3 or external hard drive to store your data temporarily.
Click on the "System Recovery" icon (usually found within the start menu) and begin the process by following the on-screen prompts.
Click on "restore" and note the warnings about losing all of your data. Wait for the computer to complete the process of erasing the hard drive and creating a new partition.
Insert the emachines recovery disk in the CD tray when prompted. This will start the process. There are usually one or two disks involved and the computer will let you know which ones to insert when and will even eject the tray automatically in most cases. You may have to restart at least three times, do not be alarmed by this and keep the disk in until you are prompted otherwise.

Example of Windows Installation Install Windows on the new partition and follow the prompts on your screen. Be sure to choose the largest partition, the one with the most kb available. There are usually two to choose from, as you have deleted the other ones in the steps prior.
Reinstall all of your backed up data and any software programs you are currently using, including the printer and Internet, if needed. Be sure all of your drivers and hardware is working properly, as they have been reinstalled as well during the recovery procedure. OR
  1. Place the recovery disk that came with the eMachines computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.

    Click "Next" when the operating system restoration screen appears. Click "Repair Your Computer" and then select "Next."

    Locate your eMachine's current operating system in the list of available operating systems, such as "Windows Vista." Click the appropriate choice and then choose "Next."

    Select "Load Drivers" and wait for the drivers to finish installing. Select "System Restore" and then click "Next."

    Scroll down through the list of available restore points. Select the first restore point if you want to completely revert the computer to factory settings. Select a later restore point if you just want to roll back any changes to your computer to an earlier date.

    Click "Next" and then select "Finish." Click "Yes" and then choose "Restart" to restore the eMachines computer.

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

Restoring


go into the Bios and set it to boot from disk, restart and it will walk u through, as long as it's xp or vista. Once it loads it will give you the option to repair, and at that point it will ask for the restore disks

My emachines computer starts up fine but freezez on the login user screen. i have bought the restore disks etc. but it will not read them because when i try to login it freezez too.


Are you booting from the restore disk? Shut down the computer, insert the cd in the drive and turn the machine on. It should then boot directly from the restore cd.
