1.This cannot be done. "Formatting" is removing all data on the hard drive. You can backup the data on the hard drive then format the hard drive.

I need to know how to restore a emachine desk top to factory settings without a disk


Without a disk you can either pick up some kind of cleaner for your computer and use that while also removing whatever programs you have installed that are not necessary. Or you could format the hard drive and reinstall your operating system if you have a different operating system to install.

RES.SIR, PLEASE TELL ME HOW TO ADD(INSTALL) THE MISSING FILES OF OPERATING SYSTEM TO RUN WINDOWS PROPERLY,WITHOUT FORMATTING CONCERN DRIVE.PLS PROVIDE THE PROPER PROCEDER. THANK YOU.


Hi

Use the OPERATING SYSTEM CD/DVD to run the REPAIR MODE.

REPAIRING THE OPERATING SYSTEM just load or install corrupted or missing files from your operating system thus will not delete any of your files from your computer.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.
