There is a good chance that you could restore the computer without the restore discs. It all depends on if there is a recovery partition built into the machine. Here is what you should do:

1. Restart your computer.
2. Tap F11 a few times before the windows loading screen.
3. Choose to restore your computer if step 2 worked.

After that your computer should be like new.

If you don't have a recovery partition try contacting microsoft and see if they can give you a copy of the operating system you are running. Just make sure you have your product key handy. It should be located somewhere on the case. Good luck.

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

How do I restore bios?


If all you have done is change the CMOS battery then the BIOS should be fine but it will have been reset to default settings which may have changed the Boot device and / or boot sequence.

Go in to the BIOS setup when you power on the computer and check that you have your main hard disk drive set as the main boot device.

Your eMachines T3508 has one PCI-Express (PCI-E x16) slot available, so yes you can use this card with it (this video card for newer Pentium 4 motherboards with PCI-x slot).

It has a built in Dial Up Modem.

To get Broadnabd you will need to get a Bradband Modem or Router to connect to telephone linked Broadband. Same for Cable I guess.

Specs of your unit can be found here:

Need large disc support for old emachine, flash bios? or try restore cds?


Hi,
flashing a bios, can render your machine/motherboard useless.
You should always ensure any bios download is from a trusted source. if you experience a power failure, or an incomplete bios file. your computers as good as dead.
Windows 95/98 only supports disk drives to a certain capacity. if you updated to windows 2000/ME/XP your problems may be solved. I,d certainly try that first.
Bios flashing Last resort, even after finding a reliable bios update. also ensure the bios file is 256mb-512mb or equivalent. as this is standard bios file size.
Finally check that your hard-drive does not have a jumper ( Small white/black ) plastic block restricting the drives registered size.
When you install windows XP, it will ask you if you wish to enable LBA ( large block Allocation ) Select Y ( yes )

Restore disks


Alot of manufactures will include restore disks with the pc. However if you don't have them anymore you will need to order them from the manufacture either on-line or over the phone. Hope this helps.

Emachine T3508 Loud Loud Loud


The only sure way to quiet it down is to replace the hard drives with newer ones, that you have selected based on their noise rating, AND to replace all the fans in the machine with fans that you have selected based on their noise rating. I did this for my self-built machine last year and never regretted spending the money on new drives and new fans. It's SO much quieter! ;)
