Same as any other system. Insert your Windows CD, go to the recovery console, format. You know you will have to reinstall everything after that.

E machine does not recognize my external hard drive.

1) Try it on a different USB port. If that doesn't work

2) Try it on another PC, if it doesn't work on either, you've got a faulty drive.

If it works on another PC but not yours, there's something wrong with your PC.

Check PC control centre, ask it to look for new hardware and/or check you device manager, see if its got a yellow question mark over one or more device. Which would mean re-installing

When i piuged in their is no power what i have to do?

Check on the power supply and make sure the main power switch is turned on. If it is turned on make sure the plug works by pluggin in a lamp or other simple device that you know works. Also if it is on a power strip make sure you did not turn the strip off. If all these work and there is no power when you hit the front button you might have a bad power supply. If that is the case contack emachine and they offer a warranty repair.

Check the BIOS to see if ACPI is enabled.
Might try looking in event viewer/Application or System log files to see what may be hanging it up.
It may also even be a virus.

Some older computers, like mine, have a maximum memory they can handle. This one happens to be 1 gig, but yours may be less. Do you have an older computer? Yup, you do. As seen here, the maximum supported ram is 256. I'm sorry. Please rate.

EMachines eMonster 500A Restore Disk

I suggest finding the specific drivers that he deleted. Typically, when a computer begins to get slow, either 1 of 3 problems occur. 1. The drivers are insufficiently up to date. 2. There's too much clutter on the hard disk, RAM, and CPU. Lastly, driver files and start up files get deleted. The best way to fix that slow problem is downloading the driver files.
