Have emachines 3240 i want to factory reset i have a restore dvd ver 1.1 3240. how can i reset it using dvd

Dear foxhugh,

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Your eMachine should automatically boot from the DVD once it is inserted. Please backup and important data to an external drive or other device before running the Factory Restore.
Follow the factories on-screen prompts to restore the drive.

Emachines 3240 windows xp home edition need to reset to factory settings no disc

Did this come with a recovery disc and you lost it? If it didn't come with one you may have a recovery partition that you can boot to. If there IS a recovery partition you should see a message on bootup that will tell you what button to push to startup to the recovery partition. If you DON'T have a recovery partition your only options are a clean install with a Windows installation disc or to call emachines (gateway) to see if they have a disc to send you.

You can contact them by following the instructions here:

Emachine 3240 possible power problem?

I would suggest try to swap the power supply out with another known good power supply.

I've seen where even though the light on the motherboard is lit, it is not getting enough power to start the machine up, especially if you have a higher end video card connected to it.
