I tried to Reboot my pc with System Disc and it is asking for a second disc. I have 1 of 1 system disc. what is disc 2


It may be a content disc. One probably holds your operating system, the other holds your preinstall programs.

I want to reboot my entire system so it starts from scratch, how do I do this?


If your system does have a recovery partition (typically says press f11 for recovery during boot if you have one) Reboot the pc, press f11 during the asus screen. The system restore utility will guide you through the rest.

If your system does not have a recovery partition
Take your system restore or operating system disc, Put it in the cdrom, reboot the computer.

When your pc starts back up (during the asus logo screen) During this screen there is usually a key sequence you can press to pop up the alternate boot menu. Typically the key is esc, f8 or f10. If one of those is right it will bring up a second menu asking what to boot from, select your cdrom. The cd will boot and your system restore disc will guide you through the rest..

I need to press a key on my keyboard to start factory recovery


Hi and welcome to Fixya!

In order to revert the machine back to its factory setting, you need to have the recovery disk (if you don't have it, call the warranty support line of e-machines so they can provide it to you).

To restore Windows from your recovery discs, you will need to
insert the first backup disc and enable the F12 Boot Menu via the BIOS Setup
Utility.
1 Turn on your computer and insert the first system recovery disc into the
optical disc drive. Restart your computer.
2 During startup when the eMachines logo shows, press the F2 key to enter
BIOS Setup, where you can set system parameters.
3 Use the left and right arrow keys to select the Main submenu.
4 Use the up and down arrow keys to select F12 Boot Menu.
5 Use the F5 or F6 key to change F12 Boot Menu to Enabled.
6 Press the ESC key to enter the Exit submenu, press the ENTER key to Exit
Saving Changes. Press the ENTER key again to select Yes. The system will
reboot.
7 After rebooting, when the eMachines logo shows, press the F12 key to
open the Boot Menu. Here you can select which device to boot from.
8 Use the arrow keys to select the IDE1*, then press the ENTER key. Windows
will be installed from the recovery disc.
9 Insert the second recovery disc when prompted, then follow the onscreen
prompts to complete the restore.
10 Remove the recovery disc from the optical drive once the restore is
complete. Do this before rebooting your computer.

Hope this helps!

Can you play PC DVD ROM on an emachines E4026 Desktop PC. because i just had a game brought for me & when i try to load it , the computer reads it as a blank disc Any help appreciated ...


Based on the one and only specs sheet I could find for this model of emachine, it does have a DVD-ROM drive. So in theory it can. Does the unit play DVD Movies? if yes then it should work, try rebooting and then putting the disc in again. I assume the disc is clean and scratch free as the game is new.

If the OS on your computer has ever been reinstalled, you may be missing the driver for the drive, in which case windows would treat it as a generic CD-ROM drive, and not be able to read DVDs, you can get the drivers for the drive from the emachines website if this is the case.

I had to use my system recovery disc on my EMachine


When you used system recovery it is possible that some stuff got missed by pc. Nothing you did since i have seen it many times. You might wanna try reloading windows from scratch but be aware you will loose all the data of off it. This might be only way.while in set up for windows install make sure you delete old partition and then install new fresh copy of windows. You will need you OS XP disk for this. It is very easy to do so just follow the prompts and when it tells you do you wanna install new copy of windows so do and it will give you option to delete old partition and do a format on it. Once this is done just do regular install.Hope this helps.

As the computer is only 2 months old, you should be able to contact Emachines and have
them send you a recovery disc out for the particular model. As the computer may seem identical, in most cases a recovery disc from your computer will not work because of a different
driver or some other small issue.

My T1220 IS RUNNING SLOW


There are a few things you can do to help your computer to run faster. First is do a disc cleanup. Go to "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools", then click "Disc Cleanup", it'll walk you through the rest.

Next go to the control panel and remove programs that are taking up space that you don't use a lot. Browse your computer and delete old fiels saved on your computer you no longer use.

Also, change your start up programs. You could have a lot of programs opening up when your computer starts that you don't use. Go to the control panel, click "Performance" and on the left hand side you will see "Manage start-up programs" and Disable programs that you aren't using often so they won't boot up everytime you reboot your computer.

Visit the eMachines website, put in your model number: T6536 and then choose Windows XP 32 bit, and download the sound driver:

Even though you indicate that you have a 64 bit version of Windows XP, the 32 bit driver should work for the sound.
