Try a cleaning kit from any office supply store. It's a CD with little brushes on them that clean the laser eye while spinning.

If that doesn't help (and it might take two or three passes), replacing the drive itself is the next step.

Emachine, w3050, restore os without discs


Impossible unless there is a recovery partition on your hard drive.

It's best to just reinstall windows. Look at the side of your computer for the Certificate of Authentication (COA) sticker. It will tell you which operating system you have and it will show you the Product Key Code (a series of 5 letters and numbers). Borrow an Operating System Disc from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker that is the same as what is listed on your COA Sticker and install it. Make sure you get the Product Key Code from their computer if it is not listed on the Disk. Sometimes when it comes to activation it will want the key code from your sticker and sometimes it wants the one from the disk that is being installed.

You'll be much better off with a clean install of windows than having a factory restore and all the bloated software you don't want.

Emachines desktop with netgear wireless adpater


You need a driver for the card.
Download one here if wanted after reading on.. I will have the link below inwhich you can click onto for instant access

Emachines are the worst computer to have. They have more problems since they are manufactured so cheaply. My advice is to sell it and purchase a HP, Or a DELL.
When the power supply gets a spike it shorts out the Mother board instantly
Emachines do not beleive installing a fuse so that is why the mother board goes too

Emachine come up where it ask for me to hit f10 or f2 but it wont do anything. My keyboard or the mouse wont work. My emachine is a w3050. Looking for a diagram of how to hook hardrive cd and just to see...


Are you using a wireless mouse or keyboard? If so try using one that you plug in. As for the cd rom and hard drive all you need is one cable for each device hooked to seperate connectors on the motherboard. Ususally the hard drive will be sata which is a red cable and can only go onto one connector on the motherboard. the cdrom is an ide cable(grey usually) and there is a seperate connector for that on the mainboard.

Go into bios and be sure the unit is set to boot to the DC/DVD when you boot up the unit.
