Re: recovery disk

If you're running a desktop all you will need is an XP disc. For all the other drivers you can take the side of your tower off and you'll see a mother board number. It usually has number and letters combined on it. If you google those numbers and and drivers after those numbers and letters you should find all that you require. If you're using a lap top you can still get an XP disc and instead of looking for the mother board numbers type in the name of your laptop including the numbers and add the word drivers and that should help you as well. I hope this will solve your problems

Factory restore

If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.

It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.

However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.

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.

hope this helps

Can i format my HD on an external bases with my laptop, then install it back into my pc. my hard drive crashed and i need to get it to boot. i dont have the boot disk

Technically, YES, the hard drive can be formatted as an external (with the appropriate equipment) on your laptop (if there are still files on it, you may even be able to extract them from it) but it still won't be bootable because it does not have an operating system on it.

That would be the part where you need the recovery disc. Windows setup programs from these boot discs already have the format utility so if there aren't any files to extract from the drive, you can skip to reinstalling Windows on the desktop and formatting it in the process.

Bottom line is that you need a Windows installation disc to make the hard drive bootable again, regardless of where you format it.

Hello.. I need some help. I am using toshiba satellite a1O system laptop was fyn till nw..all of a sudden windows doesnt load..when i turn the power on, the toshiba logo is shown..then black...

First thing you do is to see what hard disc installed in your laptop. You can check that by checking it in your bios system. To check in your bios system first turn off your computer then press delete while your laptop is booting up. Then you will see if there is a hard disk detected in your lap top if there is a detected hard drive this means you have a problem in your windows installed in your lap top.
There is also a reason why those message appear if the first boot of your laptop is the CD/DVD ROM. Check you CD/DVD ROM if there a CD inside this may the first on to read while the laptop booting up. Remove the cd inside your CD/DVD ROM. Then restart your laptop. Check your hard disk connector it may have some loose contact thats why your laptop did not recognize the hard disc.
Hope this can help keep on touch with fixya. Hope to hear some testimonial from you. . .

My dell 600 goes into the blue screen and Wont Load (Error mesg)

This is quite common, and easy to fix, I have included a link below to help you.

Insert the Windows Recovery CD into the disk drive and reboot the computer.
Check the computer's boot order. This must be done from the BIOS set-up before boot begins. Pressing "F2" will start the BIOS set up on most PCs. (This is not always the case, and the boot screens will tell you which button will take you to the system set-up.) Make sure that your CD drive comes before your hard disk in the boot order.
Select the drive with the Windows installation you wish to repair when you see the menu to select a hard disk drives. If you have mistakenly swapped a Windows Installation CD for the recovery disk, enter the automated system recovery and place the recovery disk in the drive when prompted to do so.
Select the drive that needs to be prepared. You will be asked for the administrator password. Enter the administrator account password if one has been set up.
Type "expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32." Windows is not case sensitive, but you must spell the commands correctly. This copies the ntoskernel.exe file to the approrpriate directory.
Press "Y" when the program asks if you want to proceed.
Enter the exit command and the reboot the system. Take the CD out of the drive and Windows should load correctly.

Hello. I just want to know how many gigs of space do all external LG CD-ROM hard drives have?

All full size CD-ROM disks should hold .680 GB of data.

That's *POINT* 680, or 680 MEGA bytes, which is LESS than 1 GB.

The capacity of some CD-ROMs may be slightly more 700MB or so (the capacity is usually stamped on the label), and of course the mini CD-ROM disks hold significantly less.

Is there a website where i can download a recovery hp pavilion zv5000 disk

If you have a Windows Xp CD and your laptop has the serial no. then
1. Insert the CD in CD-Rom and follow the instruction to install the Windows XP.
2. Once you installed the XP, try to get connect with internet, most of the time the LAN drivers installed, plug the Ethernet wire with your computer go to the browser.
3. type
4. Click Support & Drivers
5. Select Download Drivers and type your product no.
6. Install each component Sound, VGA, Wireless from the list.

This is the simple way to recover your computer without recovery CD. for this you dont have to be technical but smart to choose the steps. Good Luck. Amir

I have a laptop Toshiba satellite A30. I have a black screen and some text on it like: PXE-E61 MediaTest Failure PXE-M0F Exiting PXE ROM and it goes continiously, I can't go any further. When I was loaded...

media test failure means that your boot drive has failed ie your hard drive has failed to boot....could be one of a number of reasons
1 hard drive connection could be loose - try taking out the hard drive and reinstalling it
2 the boot sector on the hard drive is corrupt or damaged - try booting off a windows disk and running chkdsk or fixboot command
3 partition table is corrupt - try booting off windows cd and running chkdsk /p from command prompt
4 Hard drive has failed - if machine is still under warranty return for repair if not install new hard drive and reload op system from recovery disks

Recovery disk

I have recovery CD's for presario 700 series, works for most Compaq laptops and desktops, I can E-mail them to you or if you give me contact info I'll mail them to you.

through e-mail they are sent as an image file and will have to be Burned on cd by cdrw and burning software. So if you prefer the easiest is to just load the cd's i would mail you.

contact info
