    when trying to restore files we get 'no configurations where imported from disk'. Also we have a couple of files that has been compressed even though they were not backup as compressed files. We called Iomega and down loaded their decompression program, but this did not help. The files are still compressed.

You will loose all data you have put on the computer. When you turn it on right at the beginning there is a black screen and there are a few f key options.
They will flash up with the option when you turned it on, before windows kicks in. Take a look at the user manual to find out for sure.
Press the correct f key before windows starts up, then go through the menus in setup (it will look all crappy and dos like) and find restore factory settings (or something like that) and click yes.
It's a great feature, and will completely kill any virus or **** problems you have had and couldn't get rid of.
Hope this helps. I would appreciate your feed back as I do this for fun not pay.

My gateway laptop 4540gz cant find opp system

Operating system is the main program of the computer. It can b easily detected by your computer in boot up. So if the computer doesn't detect it, this are the steps you can try :

  1. First try to run system restore if you have one.
  2. If you don't have system restore disk, or back up disk, you can remove your hardisk from your laptop and try to connect it to other computer as an external hard drive. in that, you can copy important files and back up it in other computer if it is not also deleted.
  3. Then if you have back up your file or not, you must format your hard disk. return your hard disk to your laptop and format it.
If you don't know how to format just ask again here.

I want to do a system recovery on a EL1200 emachines? Could someone tell me how to do this?


I work with these machines every day, this model was designed after Acer bought out Gateway(who owned Emachines).

If you provide me an email address I will send a copy of the recovery disk creation instruction that we give to all our customers to you. Then once you have made the disks you can simply put disk one of the factory restore set in the DVD drive, Power down and restart and it will boot from the restore disk and from that point on you just have to confirm and agree with the warnings from the restore program to allow it to wipe the drive and start fresh.

Hope this Helps,

Emachines t5212 system restore backup files, please help!!


If you only your files to be copied in the other or any storage disk then you can remove the hard disk of your machine and then attached it to the other functional machine. in there you can browse and copy all the important files. after copying all your files then you can take back the hard drive to your non functional machine and then install new operating system. documentation found here:

tell me if something wrong with your system when applying the solution.
