The 'test screen' of the monitor means only that the monitor would display if it receives an input signal.
Make sure it isn't something simple like dislodged video connector on the back of your system box.
You may even want to removed the plug and reinsert it several times in case a sync signal contact hasn't taken a hike.

If this doesn't help, your restore CD won't help either; it means that the video signal (there are several: Red, Green, Blue plus two synchronization signals) is incomplete or missing altogether.

If the video connector is attached to the strip with many others, then the video is on the main board (common on lower end systems) and the chip supplying video has failed.

This doesn't make the system worthless as you can buy dozens of different video cards to plug in to the main board and disable the on-board chip.

I don't know how old your system is but you will likely need a PCI video card (check your manual for the types of buss available for 'add-on' cards) to install and then possibly new drivers from a supplied CD.
This is a pretty simple procedure and even the Chinglish instructions are normally enough to guide you.

Until you can see your system's boot sequence appearing on screen again, you won't be able to restore anything.

Pick up a second hand monitor, test your system to see if a signal comes through i.e. you have image on screen. before you do a recovery, perform a back up and restore, to a previous date & time. You may just have a bad monitor.

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:

    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.
    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.

The pc won't burn cd's seems like it doesn't recognize cds or dvds


Does the cd/dvd drive read cds? This is a good test to ensure that the drive is functional.

Sometimes, generic cd/dvd burners do not recognize certain types of blank discs. Try another type of
brand blank discs, it should work.

Pc keeps trying to start up but states it needs to reboot and won't. I have tried to insert the operation disc and it does not work either


it probably says insert suitable boot device. If you are trying to boot from a cd go into the bios and set the boot device priority to CD as priority. If hard drive then set hard disk to the top.

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

Download the drive test for the hard drive. Put the drive in your other computer and run the test. If it test good on simple test do the long test. IF IT COMES OUT FINE, Run the Zero program and then try to install the O.S. Check your BIOS settings and make sure everything is set right. You are on the right track. You just did not know how to test the drive. If it is a Toshiba you will not find a hard drive test. You might be able to use the Maxtor or Seagate drive test. Use the windows version if you can. If you can't do any of the test, right click on the drive and check for errors.

Rate me if this helped.
