Restore emachine W1136 desktop to factory settings without disc

I got my computer four years ago. I would like to reset it to factory setting. I have tapped and held down all of the F keys one at a time, after restarting. I have tried the F key in conjuction with ctrl, tab and delete but nothing will show the restore to factory settings page. I have pressed the start button and then all programs and could not find the file for emachine. I tried all the advice that I could find on the internet with no luck. I know that there is a restore to factory setting page because once when I was having trouble getting my computer to start up , I got a page that had several options on one of the options was restore to factory settings. PLEASE HELP ME!

    Do you have the disc available? I've read that this model has two different restore methods...one is with the disc in which you will lose everything and the other is by pressing f11 repeatedly...but if you've tried all the function keys I'm assuming you need the disc.

I guess you can try it again to make it not able to start up such as to rename some important windows file. Always a good option to backup first.

You can chat with emachine tech on the following page.
http://emachines.com/support/answers.html

They might be glad to help. Someone might be always a little bit more courteous than others. You can reward them a most satisfactory feedback anyways.

Someone tried the Alt+F10 to get that restore option, I guess it might work with your emachine too. You might like to try it while starting up the system too.

Something to try if you didn't.
(1) Go to start menu
(2) Click on all programs
(3) click on Emachine
(4) click on Emachine recovery management
(5) Click on restore on the bar across the top
(6) click on restore to system factory default

Did you try the number key while starting up or the R key or maybe with the Alt key? Hope that help.

How to reset to factory settings for e machine T2878


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.

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.

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:

    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.

Usually e-machine and other pc's have a factory restore setting set up in case of an error. You can; according to emachine tap the "Alt" and "F10" keys at the same time when the eMachines logo appears. Press "Enter" and follow the directions on the screen to recover the operating system back to factory condition. I hope that helps, if those keys don't work try F11 at the emachine logo. Good luck.

Emachines usually gives you restore disk to restore it to factory setting (out-of-the box). see if you can find that disk if not you can contact Emachines and get it from them. it should not be too expensive just shipping could be part of expanse. i would say about $25. i would call emachines and get it from them
