While restoring it asks for Modify, Repair or Advanced or somthing like that. For this you should have given repair, and proceeded.

Want to restore to beging of time


Remove any DVDs or CDs from the optical drives and then unplug all peripheral devices except for the keyboard and mouse. Click the "Windows" button and then type "eMachines recovery management" into the search box. Click on "eMachines recovery management" in the results list and then click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" and then type a new password into the text box. Click "OK" and then click "Restore System to Factory Default". Type the recovery password into the "Password" text box and then click "OK". Click "Next" To start the recovery process. Click "Finish" and then wait for your computer to restart. This procedure could take several minutes. Once your computer has restarted, you'll be prompted to create a new user account, enter the date and time and set up the internet settings.
or if you are running XP If you set your machine back to eMachines factory settings, it might help you for a short while but if you don't have effective virus protection your problems will return in short order.

You should get rid of this virus with an effective virus remover.

You can run Bitdefender's free online scan which doesn't need to be downloaded http://www.bitdefender.com/scan8/ie.html

If you know when you got the virus, you can do a system restore to a time before the virus was on your system.
This article tells you how to run it from safe mode http://bertk.mvps.org/html/safemode.html

Your best protection in general is a complete internet security suite such as Bitdefender or Norton internet security 2009.

If you need to totally rebuild your system and you don't have a recovery disk, contact eMachines to get one.

You might also try a Windows repair install if you have the operating system disk. Follow the directions here for XP http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepa... Source(s): http://www.ask-the-computer-doc.com/comp... Hope this helps.

Emachines c2881 unable to upgrade to sp2


Yeah, but you may not care for it.

I, personally abhor the automated feature of Service Packs.
I would rather download Manually, and see what I'm getting.

Takes longer?

Sure.

Cramming junk down my throat that I don't want, don't need, and it is just filling good space I need on my harddrive?

Uh, no.

What to download, there's so much stuff, and I don't know what I'm looking at?
Just download the basics.

What?

Okay, download manually one at a time. When you can't boot your computer, Yep, that one has got to go.

Acer, (Excuse me, I mean eMachines), wants how MUCH?
You told them you could buy a better, used, computer, for that much.

Right?
(I know. I know. Be nice. There's always time to be bad. Lol!)

Lemme see. What could Acer have done for 150 bucks.
Motherboard? Ummm. Harddrive and new genuine copy of Windows XP? Ummmm.

Naa!

They were going to pick your computer apart, to see what the problem was.

You stated " I even tried not using the restore cd but a copy of XP again...."

Meaning a;
1) NEW genuine copy of Windows XP?
2) Genuine copy of Windows XP from another computer?
What are we talkin' about here?

I want to know what the original problem was? Why were you using the Restoration Disk in the first place?

Post back in a Comment.

Installed XP to my emachine EL1850G-42W, cant get connect with internet, what's the model of it enthernet controller?


HI.
Your eMachines computer has an integrated network card, not a pci type of card.

It is a 10/100/100 network, so it will work well with both personal and business class internet services at high speeds.

Now, if you wish to go wirelessly to the internet, then you will need to get a wireless network adapter.

Those usually go for around 30-40 dollars at WalMart.

I hopre that this is what you were wanting to know, and good luck to you.

Can i use a compaq system restore disk on an emachine? I don't have the boot up disks that i was supposed to create when i got this emachine, but i do have some old compaq ones, both use windows xp os...


You cannot use the restore disks from those other systems to do a restore. Even though you may be able to extract the XP install files, you won't be able to authenticate it because the disk is OEM and reads data off of the system it is supposed to install on.

If you have an emachine, contact them for the restore disk, or search the internet for a restore disk for your model. Some people sell them, even on ebay.

Does my new Emachine laptop have no dial up modem?


Correct. It's looking for a standard dialer modem. You may just need to go through the internet connection wizard and define how you want to connect. With a wireless adapter, you could locate and connect to internet with that instead of a dial-up modem. Internet connetion wizard comes with Vista and XP and is found: Start > Control Panel > Network connections.

Acer 4810T w/Vista it will not stay connected to internet


i doubt its your unit. if it shows your connected, your connected.wireless routers often loose signal. even if you have a cordless house phone it could easily interupt with your signal also. a lot of times it could be your service provider.

Wireless network access: 1 laptop fine, other not so much


Check the wireless card on the PC first. Go to "My Computer" then "Device Manager" and check to se if all the hardware is ok.

Use Control panel/netconnections to check to see if you still have a wireless connection and if it works. Also check "My Network Places." Try re-installing the drivers.

As a last resort....try System Restore if it's an XP or Vista system. Remember - using system restore will return the PC to an earlier time but you could lose some stuff so decide first.

Ok, you need to put a new Op system on the computer, (I assume you want XP) If you have an older HP computer that came with XP on it, you probably already have the discs

Now keep in mind, you will probably have to go online and get the drivers for a lot of your hardware (modem/ethernet port, wireless card, maybe even your touch mouse)

Disk clen up


first start by getting rid of all the mp3's that might be on your hard drive. Download www.ccleaner.com and run it- it will get rid of most of the temp files on your hard drive. Go into add remove programs and delete unneeded programs. Online support can help you do this too. Try www.plumchoice.com they can fix it over the internet!
What you probably need is a much bigger hard drive- they're cheap, but you might need help installing it, and setting it up. A local computer guru can do this easily.
