    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...

It looks like you'll have to either return it or perform a default factory recovery. These instructions are from their site but proceed knowing that this will erase any data that is stored on the primary partition (meaning if you have anything on it, it's gone...). Esentially it resets it to a point as if you just picked it up in the store (which you did.. :( )


How can I restore my computer with the backup discs I created?
With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    If you have a recovery disk:

    How can I restore my computer with the backup discs I created?
    With user created backups you are able to restore your computer to the factory default settings. If backup discs were created instead of factory restore discs, these can be used instead and will restore the system to a user backup point.
    1. Ensure that the computer is completely shutdown, then turn on the computer.
    2. When the eMachines splash screen appears, tap the Alt and F10 keys simultaneously. A screen stating "Starting eMachines eRecovery" should appear.
    3. From the recovery options, choose Restore system from CD/DVD.
    4. Insert either the first Recovery or Backup disc that you created.
    5. From the on-screen options, choose a backup.
    6. Click OK and the installation will begin.
    7. Change the disc as necessary when prompted.


      If you do not have a recovery disk:

    8. Restart the computer.
    9. When the eMachines logo appears on the screen, press the Alt and F10 keys repeatedly.
    10. If you are prompted with a Microsoft Windows boot screen, press the Enter key.
    11. After the system recovery application has loaded, follow the prompts to reinstall the Operating System.

I purchased a restart/restore disc for my emachine two weeks ago i recieved it some time last week and come to find out that it dosnt work, i took it to best buy geek squad and the put in a disc of their...


Was the Geek Squad's disc being detected? Or did you just take them your disc to see if they could get a computer to recognize it? If not, then you may just need to change some settings at Boot for your computer to start booting from your restore disc. I've never personally dealt with the Geek Squad, but I would not just take their word for something. I've had several people very unhappy with the outcome of letting them service their computers. I've talked to other people who were very happy with the Geek Squad service. Try taking your disc to a local computer shop and ask them if they can put the disc in their computer to see if it is a functioning Restore Disc. MADHATTER COMPUTERS

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.

How do i use the 3 restore disc


Make sure you are enabled to boot from cd rom, put disk one in cdrom, restart computer, follow instructions given on screen. When it is finished it will prompt you to put disk 2 in and then disk 3. Good luck.

I can't get my system recovery disk to work so i can restore my computer to the orginal format


If your recovery CDs have failed you have some options

1. you can call the company who made your computer about a new set of restore discs

2. you can buy an operating system disc such as XP or vista

XP or Vista , Operating System Installation CD will setup the computer nicely , you may need drivers for certan things but not likely.


Malfunctioning restore CDs really **** me off

I just chunk em and load my XP pro disc

( multi machine volume license required if you wanna put it on multible computers )
( same with vista )

but in some cases you may find that XP pro will install on many machines just fine.


Thank you for using FixYa!
