Where do i get drivers for t3256 e-machine, drivers to completely r e-install Tower PC


Hello sage_morales,

A backup restore cd should have been created when the computer was first installed. But if you don't have the restore cd then this link on the emachines support site may have helpful information:

I have an emachines t3256 desktop that i just reinstalled windows xp and now i cant get the network adapter to work its onboard and i cant find a driver on their website


Try installing a PCI ehternet card.Turn off the cpu then restart.The cpu will automatically (!?)detect the new hardware and even install the driver(generic).Then there you can get to the internet and get you E-machine drivers.It will also install the driver for your onboard ethernet(NIC) adapter and with that you are good to go.

How to downgrade from windows 7 to xp on emachine laptop


If it is a new emachine, then it proberly will not let you. There is a problem with drivers. certain pieces of the hardware might no have any drivers that are supported by XP.. The best thing you can do is check the emachine website to see if any drivers XP. If so then follow this basic guide to format and re-install XP on your PC.

Emachine T1100 Emachine window then no system window


It sounds like the hard drive has been wiped or is dead or not connected. Check the power and control cables to the hard drive. Check drive with a maintenance diskette or CD. Replace drive if bad. If wiped or replaced, you need to re-install an operating system, such as MS Windows-XP, or Ubuntu (a free, downloadable, Debian GNU/Linux based operating system with a Windows-like user interface).
