The best bet is to borrow a copy from a neighbour/friend and use your CD key on the side of your laptop instead of his to register.

also get onto the police and report that repairman as he's charged you for a job he hasn't done and using illegal software.

your modem is always talking to your service even when not connected to your pc it is just showing that it is working. Emachine manuals are a little hard to find, your best bet is to contact the store where you bought it, I know Best Buy used to sell the, they may have a manual, and you could try contacting emachines directly.

I just bought this brand sony vaio new laptop and it has windows home premium on it... Then the ms Office home/student 2007 and that kept asking me for a Prod Key..


You need to register the Vaio and if you are using the MS office that came on the computer you will need to go through the purchase and registration process. The version they put on computers today is a 90 day temporary trial that requires you to purchase a product key to continue using it. You can go to Walmart, Target, Best Buy and purchase the software there to get your key if you prefer. It will cost the same.

Vista is slow


The slowness of Vista depends on the components that you have for the computer. Did you buy your computer with Win Vista installed? If you upgraded your computer from XP to Vista, you have to make sure that it is covered by the system requirements of Vista.

If you have a brand new computer with Vista installed in it, then there could be a little glitch on the program. I've used different kinds of Vista (Home Premium, Vista Business and Vista Ultimate) but none of them worked slow. If that's a brand new computer, I would suggest to contact the manufacturer or the reseller.

Have a great day!

Windows vistas download disk for my emachine w3653.so i can restore my computer.


Hello jmackfreebal,
If the PC did not come with the Vista install disc or Recovery disc's, more than likely you can contact eMachine Customer Support about purchasing the Recovery Discs. Or maybe ask the store where you bought it if they can help. The worst case scenario is that you have to buy your own personnal copy of Vista. I know that all of this sounds bad, but without the discs there really isn't much that can be done.

I need a Windows Vista Install Disk


Whoever you purchased your laptop from should be able to sell you a restore set of disks.

I've heard getting restore disks can be like pulling teeth out but it's better than getting a new license.

Error -need to re-install the operating system


Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.

It will autoboot from the CD and you can reinstall Vista Basic.

Should you have further problems don't hesitate to give more details.
