Error message "restore failed 0x00000070"


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings. Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor. Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs." Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default." Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process. Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.

I have emachines el1360-ur30p running windows 7 and doesn't recognize cd/dvd


Hello,

Was it working fine before? If it does, then you would need to update the driver for your DVD.. Or you might have an outdated DVD driver. You can use RadarSync to update it.

My emachines el1360 doesn't recognize cd/dvd


Try going to safe mode. Restart your computer and tap f8. Use the arrow key to highlight safe mode, and once you are inside safe mode. Try running the dvd or insert the sd card. If it runs well, then install RadarSync or any automatic PC updater then update the drivers. You can also manually update them by going to the website of your computer's manufacturer. Look for support and download.

Misplaced manual - want to install CD-ROM for first time - no slot available


Do you mean you want to install a CD-ROM drive, like it doesn't have one? It comes with a super-multi DVD drive that reads and writes CD's and DVD's.

Because it's a very small desktop unit, it only has room for one 3.5" hard drive and one DVD drive. Consider an USB external drive. They work fine.

Windows 7 password reset bought at a auction dont know main password


Download the Ophcrack Live CD: http://pcsupport.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=pcsupport&cdn=compute&tm=48&gps=88_10_1152_572&f=10&su=p284.9.336.ip_p504.1.336.ip_&tt=4&bt=1&bts=0&zu=http%3A//ophcrack.sourceforge.net/ and burn it to a disk using Image Burn: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

Then just boot the computer with the Live CD in the CD/DVD drive. If it doesn't boot into the CD you will have to go into the BIOS and set the boot order so that the CD/DVD drive boots first. Most computers will tell you which "F" key to press to get into "setup," also called the BIOS. Sometimes it is the "del" key.

Be advised that it is a criminal offense to break into a computer that doesn't belong to you.

    I have e machines EL1300G-02W desktop pc has dvd rom can i add a cdrom drive?


    Your DVD-ROM drive will also play CD's. You can also easily remove it and replace it with a CD-ROM drive if you like. Simply open the case, unscrew the DVD-ROM, remove the power and data cables from the back and pull it out through the front of the case. Installing the CD-ROM just involves doing this in the reverse order. Make sure your computer is off and unplugged during this process.
