    Sorry if my questions seem really basic, but we have to start at the beginning. I'm assuming from your posting that you have a factory-issued recovery disk? Does your computer read software on other disks?

Can you copy the disk onto a new folder on the desktop? if you can then there is no problem with the disk...you dont mention how old your computer is but if may be worth your while getting a dvd lens cleaner.does it read other disks ok? if so you might have a damaged cd and will have to look for a new disk. if the disk is not reading from your drive...ask a friend with a new computer ( clean drive lens ect ) and ask them to copy it for you.as long as it does not have a copy protection on it you will be ok, if it does you might have to ask the supplier of you e-machine for a new disk but they will prob ask for a charge

I'm trying to download E728 recovery disk but my serial/SNID no isn't recognised


If you have done a Factory Recovery, all your date is gone. You have formatted the HDD. You must start from the beginning, do all your Windows and eMachine updates. In Windows 7 you will find a folder, "Windows.old", after you have finished ALL the updates, do a Search for Windows.old, you will find SOME of your old data. If the Laptop didn't complete the Recovery process, try again. Where did you download the e728 Recovery disk from? Is it a boot disk? A ISO disk? You may have to contact eMachine support, using your Serial Number, order a Factory DVD to return the Laptop to Factory Settings.

Emachines t1116


Usually e-machine and other pc's have a factory restore setting set up in case of an error. You can; according to emachine tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time when the eMachines logo appears. Press "Enter" and follow the directions on the screen to recover the operating system back to factory condition. I hope that helps, if those keys don't work try F11 at the emachine logo. Good luck.

I am trying to restore my emachine to it's original factory settings as I am going to sell it. I have been told that I need to go in the emachines folder in programs but there isn't a folder...


emachines does not provide any factory restore option in computer, in fact you might have received factory restore disks when you bought it, which can be used to restore your computer Or you can check with emachines if they can provide you these disks
hope this helps

Im trying to get my pc to go to its original settings factort restore


The only way to restore your computer to factory setting with all the software/bloatware as it came with your computer the first day you start it up, you will need the factory restore disk that came with the computer if one is provide, if not usually with e-machine product, which doesn't provide you with a factory restore disk, you will have to create one yourself using a dvd-r. Usually you will have to go the the emachine recovery/back up management option in your menu programs and use that program to make the factory restore disk, after making that disc, you will need to insert the disc, and shuit down the computer and restart it. It will prompt you to follow direction once the factory restore disk is boot up. Follow the directions and you should be good to go. If there isn't a recovery managment program or a factory restore disk provided, you will need to contact emachine up.... usually they can send you factory restore disk for a small fee.

I have a t5082 emachine desktop and i want to dump it back to its original default settings


For that you need recovery disk or winxp or vista bootable disk.
Then boot your computer with disk.
When you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios.Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as your cd / dvd rom.
Then save and exit .
Then it boot with disk.
Then follow the procedure and if you want previos windows then choose "r" option for repair.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks.

My husband has an e machines and has been having problems deleting certain programs and all he wants to do is restore to factory settings but he doesn't have the discs needed to do this...is there any way...


to do a system restore you would need the disks. possibly you could restore some settings but not a full restore. if it has xp and he has system restore enabled he might back up till a time the problems werent there.you would have had to have had the system restore activated befor the trouble started and it may still ahve problems there.some pc's have a backup on the hd you might try emachine support and see if this is the case here. i have fixed a few emachines just not that experienced their os.

T5082 CF reader problem


If your comfortable opening the case, I would try disconnecting the reader from the mother board, and then reconnecting it. Sometime reseating the connections will fix it. Usually however the hardware is bad. If this is the case, you can get a replacement here
