Error message "restore failed 0x00000070"


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings. Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor. Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs." Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default." Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process. Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.

The problem is when click on application program it displays fatal error message of error opening driver file how can i fix this?


Is this happening on any program you click on? If so it means a virus has changed your program file associations.

Click Start/Control Panel/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore
When system restore opens select a date and time that was before this problem started happening. Let the system restore run to completion.
Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy any of your data, documents, music, pictures or videos. System Recovery destroys everything and sets the computer back to when you first purchased it.

If the virus won't let you start system restore then turn off your computer and turn it back on, start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the safe mode option and when it boots up click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore and from there select a date and time that was before you started having the problem.

If you still have a problem after doing the restore, report back and there is about 30 different little programs you will have to run to get your program file associations set back to their default settings.

Emachine 3653 factory restore


You can use the Restore CD that came with the computer. The eMachines restore disk sets your PC back to factory settings with the original operating system and programs that were shipped with the computer. Doing so resolves many problems that can arise from long-term computer use, viruses, or the operating system slowing down.


1. To do a factory restore insert the restore CD then reboot the computer. When prompted, press any key to boot from the CD.


2. Select the option to "Reformat the drive to factory settings."

3. Follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall the operating system and original software that came with your computer.

4. Once the Restore finishes, you can re-install all the programs that you added to the computer as well as restore your files.


Reminder: Reformatting your computer erases all of your installed programs, personal documents, pictures and music. If you have the ability to, back up all of your personal data using a removable flash drive, external hard drive or DVDs before doing a Factory Restore.
