I did a system restore from the supplied disc for my e-machine. When windows opened it did not recognize that I had a modem. It also thought my 240 gig hard drive was only 5 gigs. What am I doing wrong

The most probable way to fix this scenario is to open the "add hardware" section in the control panel. Allow windows to "automatically" find new hardware. Once this step is complete, see if your missing hardware is listed and follow the instructions. - Let me know the results.

Why doesn't the restore disc help me out? I thought if I replaced the hard drive I could use the restore disc to get me running again.where do I get a system disc for Windows 7 if I need it


the best place to buy one is from a computer shop.
or you can buy them on line.
sounds like the restore disc you have would of been for the old hdd.
a restore disc is not the same as a windows system disc.

I have a lenovo desktop with windows 8


If you mean Windows 8 will not load to the login screen then you may need to reinstall Windows. Most manufacturers will supply a system restore disc or during the inital boot you may see a press F# to recover. If you didn't get a disc you will need to contact Lenovo to have them ship you a disc.

Computer won't recognize driver


Turn the modem off. Disconnect the electrical power.
Reconnect the electrical power. Turn the modem on.
This "resets" the modem, and you should be good-to-go.

Or, telephone your Internet Service Provider's "Help Desk", and get them to trouble-shoot.

Modem in use


Try the following:

-Open the Control Panel
-Open System
-Click on Device Manager
-Click on Modems
-Highlight and right click on the listed modem
-Select Uninstall

Close out anything open and Restart.

IF (!) Windows is cooperating, it should 'find a new device' and reinstall the Winmodem (it's only software and a little telephone line matching).

If Windows fails to recognize the 'new device,' you will have to manually reinstall it via the 'add new hardware' path in the Control Panel.

As with any Windows stuff - rotsa ruck!
