Without your restore CD you'll have to purchase WinXP. You could phone tech support and see if they'll ship you a replacement restore CD, or find another T2240 and see if they'll let you copy theirs. The eMachines restore CDs and model-specific.

Another option is to install a freee OS like Ubuntu or Kbuntu.

Good luck.

How can i do a full system restore for my emachines T3656 i dont get the option to press f11 i only get f2 or f10


This indicates you have no resident restore partition on your hard disk drive. The easiest way is to put your Windows OS CD in the PC and startup. It should ask if you want to start from CD. Say yes and follow the instructions. You may need to press F2 or 10 to change the bootup sequence to start from the CD if it doen not do it automatically.
Thanks

I lost my d recovery partions and i dont have erecovery option or nti backup.it under warranty and i dont feel i should have to pay for the disc to fix it


Unfortunately if you did not create the restore disks you will either need to purchase them from eMachines (usually around $30) or buy/download an operating system and install it yourself using the drivers located on the eMachines website for this model.

I need to restore xp home edition but cant find cd have product key numbers emachines 330


You should be able to reinstall from another XP Home Edition OEM CD so if you know someone who has a computer which came with XP Home Edition preinstalled you should be able to use their Cd, you'll still have to download the drivers for your pc though.

I need system setup disks for emachines T2682 desktop


unfortunately I have had more than one customer who has had to call up to 4 times to get someone who can help. If that is the first person you spoke with, call back and ask someone again, according to the specs this PC came with WinXP Home, which is not considered ancient yet, and I know They do have restore sets for this model.
If you have access to another PC try to order them online yourself through their website

Installation windows xp emachine t5082


You must find "eMachine" XP USB drivers for your computer.
If all USB support is "enabled" in BIOS, the conflict is with drivers.
XP is loaded with many generic drivers, however eMachines is proprietary and requires eMachine drivers for most on-board hardware.

Contact eMachines support to locate the drivers (if available).

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!

Forgot password to log in to pc


Hi,
Please mention your problem clearly....
If its BIOS password (when system boots it will ask for password) then shutdown the system and remove the COMS battery for 2 minutes which is present in the one of the corner of the motherboard.
If its user password (asking the user name and password) then you need to install a fresh copy of windows xp. to install a windows xp, Insert the XP bootable cd into the CD-ROM. Restart the system. Then the system will boot from cd. If its not asking to boot from cd then you need to change the settings on BIOS menu. When system restarts keep-on pressing the DEL or F2 keys or both. then it will take you to BIOS setup. there change the boot priority. Select first boot device as CD/DVD ROM. After please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Follow the steps.
