    I have the same problem with my T2984 recovery DVD. When the system restarts with it in the DVD drive i get a message that it is a non-system disc or disc error



    I have tried hitting f11 while it's booting with no luch

  • gmcchesney May 18, 2008

    Well, I was having problems with administrator permissions and access to programs. I have always been the only administrator, so I have no idea why the Emachine did this. Anyway, I finally gave up and put in the restore disc, to re boot the hard drive from scratch. After the computer ran the cdrom, I removed it and pressed any key to comtinue. The computer starts and runs until it hits the screen where It's supposed to open Windows XP. At this point the screen says "please wait" and the cursor becomes an hour glass. I have "waited" several hours and "nothing" happens. If I press F8 on start up and enter safe mode, and tell it to open in "safe mode", the computer "displays" a window that says " system32ini/config " cannot be located. Is there a workaround for this? Can it be fixed? If it can, I'm all ears. Thank you in advance for your advise.

Hit f11 when computer is starting up..it will take you to the restore menu...do a complete system restore from the restore partition.. as far as the restore discs goes, when you pop that in, the computer will boot from the cd and take you to the restore menu...do a complete system restore..after formatting the hard drive.it will show a bunch of files..be patient and let it complete the process...

When folks purchase their computers in today's world. You have to go to their recommended download site and gather up your models recovery disc. If they provide the recovery disc for you in the box that is a serious plus. Some people just do not know how to download things off the net not know how to burn them. Companies do not wish to spend the large amounts of money it takes to provide each customer with a system restore disc these days.


Some companies still store them and other do not offering people no support at all when their computers fail. Anything computers before 2008 maybe even newer, will not have disc support let alone driver sites to go to. If you are lucky enough to have such a deal get all the goodies while you can. Companies have also set aside on your computer recovery section on your hard drive where you can recovery from there, So support is null and void really of any real change of talking to a tech guy mainly oversees, although at the time of sale sure we offer great support for your new machine. It can be frustrating to say the least been there done that one.


Now to solve that matter of restoring your computer and you are not going to like hearing this, you are going to need a factory restore disc, or you will have to follow those informative members who know if even there is a restore section on the hard drive or a method in which you can do this without a disc again often the case. If you do not have one available for your computer?


You can go back and restore from a saved image file you did or a backup in which most folks did not do in the beginning of time since they first started using their machines. "Imperative" Now you know why?


It simple really, for those of us who have done this several hundreds of times. Personally I like to get rid of all the factory junk that comes with computers these days. Most of it is junk filling up your computers, some of it is needed but really not needed with the deployment of Win 7. I always keep a copy of Windows 7 and use this disc when restoring computers. It is called and O.E.M. disc. Or you can just for you purchase a Win 7 disc. This way no junk no extra things on the hard drive that will pop up or disturb you with buy this and buy that sort of thing in your face.


You know why because Windows 7 in its update process keeps loads of driver and hardware files and software it seeks on your computer during the update and installs them for you if there is a driver that it does not pick up "Rare" it offers a solution as to where to find that driver file at. Thus support is done virtually. Unlike XP where you still have to seek out some driver files after restoring your machines in most cases. So my advice is Windows 7 if you can get a disc for yourself by all means do it. Make sure that you have the resources within your computer to do this update.


Place the system restore disc in the DVD or CD drive of your machine. Boot from that source first boot. Go to BIOS or where it set set the boot order and do this most machines are designed to boot from DVD or CD drives by default. Follow the onscreen instructions and there you have it a restored computer.


It would take me forever to seek out restore discs for every single question I answer. The main questions are, "how to restart my computer without a password" How do I restore my computer back to factory settings? If you do a little more research on your subject matter there are solutions other than just having a restore disc. However as much as I would love to be able to give everyone there complete answer and a complete solution to this issue. Many brands come into play and many different models as involved for me to find out if yours has restore capabilities located in a drive section.

How do you go about to format a toshiba l650 and reinstall windows 7


Hi! If you have the Windows 7 disc just insert it restart the computer. It will boot directly from the disc. Then follow the step by step instructions here.
If you don't have the Windows 7 disc, you have two ways to reformat your Toshiba computer.
Using Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from the recovery partition
In case of a hard disk drive failure, you may be able to restore the drive to the factory default state using the on-disk Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility (in a special partition on the hard disk drive).
You can select restoring the entire hard disk drive to the factory default state, or restoring only the C: drive -- without affecting other partitions (for example, a D: drive) -- or changing the size allocated to your C: drive, and then restore it.
To recover your hard disk drive from a system failure using the utilities stored on your computers HDD, follow these steps:
  1. If the computer is running, shut it down -- by clicking Start, Shut Down, and again Shut Down.
  2. Press and hold the 0 (zero) key on your keyboard and then press the computers power switch. When the computer turns on, the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting three options:
htd7c02140000r0136063.jpg
Sample TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen

Restore Original Factory Image (Recommended)
CAUTION:
Restoring a hard disk drive to its factory default state deletes all partitions on the hard disk drive and all data stored on those partitions. All of your files and information will be lost! Be sure to back up all important files first.
  1. Press 1 to restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. A confirmation message will appear, indicating that all data will be overwritten and lost during the restore process. Be sure to back up all important files before proceeding.
  2. Click Yes to begin the recovery. A message will appear once the operation is finished, indicating the HDD has been restored.
  3. Press any key to restart the computer.
* The options 2 & 3 are for advanced users.
Hard Disk Drive Recovery using Recovery CDs or DVDs
You may also wish to to run the Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility from Recovery CDs or DVDs that you have created.

Insert the first Recovery CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive, and turn on the computer. Once the computer is running, the TOSHIBA HDD Recovery Utility screen will appear, presenting the same three options above. Again Press 1 to
restore your hard disk drive to its original factory default state. Click Yes to begin the recovery. Press any key to restart the computer.

Installing Drivers and Applications
The TOSHIBA Application Installer allows you to reinstall the drivers and applications that were originally bundled with your computer.
To reinstall drivers and applications:
  1. Double-click the "Toshiba Application Installer" icon on the Windows desktop. This utility may also be launched by clicking Start -->All Programs --> Hard Disk Recovery Utilities.

    htd7c02140000r0136067.jpg

  2. Click "Next".
  3. Click the item(s) you wish to install. To select multiple items, hold down the Ctrl key as you click your selections.
  4. Click "Install".
  5. Follow the on-screen prompts to complete the installation process.

Hope this helps.

How do i get my presario 2800 to factory state


From what you say I presume you wish to put it back to when you bought it. If so, boot your computer and go into the Bios, select default settings.
Re boot your computer with your system disc in the DVD drive and when the menu asks whether you want to install a fres system and format, select that.
When your new system is installed, go to the manufacturers web site and down load the drivers for your computer then re boot it.
Install Office and any other periferal software that was supplied with the computer and there you have a system installed bare PC.

That option is the built in Windows restore, Not the system recovery that you need.
You should of been given either a windows disc or recovery/factory restore disc with your computer. OR it will have asked you to make a recovery disc when you first used your computer.

If you have none of these you will need to buy one. Recovery discs are about £15.
You may also wish to get a copy of windows to start from a fresh instalation

Please how do i reset my computer to default.


If you are asking to put it back to the point to when you purchased it you need the restore CD\DVD. It should have come with your computer when you purchased it. If not you can purchase it form the manufacturer. Just put the disc in the drive and restart the computer. It will wipe everything and put it back to the state where you purchased it. I do this leist every year with my laptop after backing everything up. I call it my spring cleaning.
Hope this helps

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


Hi,

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,

Chris

Do I need windows xp disc to reinstall?


To format your hard-drive then re-install Windows? Yes, you would need one.

If you're attempting to rid yourself of a virus, you can definitely attempt a system restore. However, most modern viruses are smart, and the first thing they will do is integrate themselves into the system restore files. If however you have a system-restore disk (CD-ROM) which came with the computer, those will obviously not be infected (nor will they be infected) and can be used to restore the system to the state it was in when you first turned it on.

Let me know if I can help you further.
