The most common problem occurs when there is an incompatible device installed or a device that interferes the boot up of Windows.
If you have recently installed a new device in your computer please remove it and also remember to remove all of the USBs attached to the computer. Basically nothing except the Power source should be connected while you are booting up your computer. You can install the USB devices once your computer has loaded up.

    Okay here is one more advice before you go for a new netbook.

    Try going into safe mode and restoring your computer to an earlier date. You can do that by following these steps:

    1. Power up your computer and press F8 key several times until you get to the options screen
    2. Select Safe mode from the options screen and let it boot
    3. Now it should boot up properly if there are no virus on your computer
    4. (I will assume that you are using Windows XP), click the start button scroll to Accessories and Select System Tools over there you can see a button named System Restore
    5. Now Click System Restore and follow the steps shown in the window.

    Hope this helps,
    If this even doesn't work there might be a virus on your computer that you might have to get it removed.

    Please feel free to ask me any further.

Start your computer(this is if you have windows 7 on this like my em250).
while it is starting hold down the ALT button and hit the F10 button continuously until the recovery manager comes up and then you can choose to factory restore or recovery from an earlier time. the F8 option does not work on these netbooks.

I cant get any sound at all on my netbook. It just went suddenly


I need to know if it is indeed an eMachines EM250-1915 Netbook PC, and what version of Windows operating system you are using.

We will go to eMachines Support, download AND install the Audio Driver.

[Sometimes Windows has a 'brain f@rt'. Looses the address to the driver file. Most of the time it just takes reinstalling THE audio driver.]

My emachine em250 wont start windows 7 will not boot up at all what can i do? there is no cd drive so i cant do a recovery with a cd

If you are using Windows 7 Click on the start icon, right-click on "Computer" click on "Properties." On the left hand side are quick links, one should be "Action Center," click on it , at the bottom of the page you will see a computer icon with a clock called "Recovery," click on it and click on the blue text "Advanced recovery methods," You should see a button called "Return your computer to Factory Conditions" click on it and follow the instructions
Hope that helps

How to restore my pc emachine e727 to factory setting without using a cd.

This works with most computer that come with a "restore" partiton, and haven't been erased.

when you turn on your computer look for the bios screen(press this for setup, this for boot) imeadiatly look for text that say "restore" and a key to press, then press it, you might need to do it a few times, it's usually a second or 2 before windows boots.
