Hi There,

As a general rule, when you're in the booting up phase right after the power button is pushed, you'd push the F2 key quickly and repeatedly intul you saw what's called your BIOS Settup. SOmetimes it's the Escape key or even the F10 11 or 12 key.

Using one of those, once you see the BIOS you'll be in an area where the mouse doesn't get used any more. You navigate around with the arrow keys. You want to find the BOOT ORDER selction by searching among the tabs you see, scroll to it using the arrow keys and when it's highlighted follow instructions on how to enter the BOOT ORDER.

Then, following instructions you'll see, change the BOOT ORDER to start with the CD?DVD and follow directions on how to Save and Exit.

Once you exit the BIOS your computer will boot normally and you should let it, and insert the Recovery CD while it's on. Then, Shut Down Windows properly.

Now, press the power button and as soon as you see a message on a black screen in white letters saying, "Press any key to boot from cd", hit a key and your recovery disc will run.follow the Recovery CDs prompts and make the choices you want to restore.

After that, just follow the prompts and make the choice you want to restore the system.

Best Regards,

Marcus

    is I imagine this is for a full system recovery, like a out of box sort of recovery?

Turn the computer on, install the Recovery Disk in the optical drive. Give the optical drive a few seconds to read the Recovery Disk.

If the recovery disk is not read, and does not start automatically, go to Start, My Computer, and double-click on the optical drive icon.
(D: drive)

When the Recovery Disk starts, and comes to the question, "What do you wish to do?", click on Destructive Recovery. Also may be listed as Full Installation.

Added 2 1GB memory to a T5048. Will not boot. do I need to upgrade the BIOS? Also want to disable on-board graphics and add a pci graphic card.


There are two variants of the T5048 One uses DDR PC3200 ram the other uses DDR2 PC5300
Should be able to look at the old ram and it should say on it what it is. If it doesn't, take out the new, put in the old ram and go here http://www.crucial.com/store/drammemory.aspx Run the "Scan My Computer"
Some computers will have a setting in BIOS to disable on board video although eMachine are very low end and probably don't offer that. Shouldn't need to just install your video card and plug your monitor into it. It should work just fine without disabling on board.

Will my emachine t5048 support AGP or PCI-Express? what video card should i buy to get the most out of my system?


Your system supports PCI Express x16. So look for a compatible video card which should atleast have 512mb of video memory.

I recently purchased Two PNY 1Gb ram to upgrade from original 512mb. When I put both 1Gb ram in the slots, the computer will not boot up. When I take one out and put the original 512 back in with the other...


I don't know your specific model, but some of the Emachines had some memory directly on the motherboard. With the 1Gb and 512Mb sticks installed, boot the machine and report how much memory the system sees. Perhaps the onboard memory is causing you to exceed the 2Gb limit.

Please post the memory size you get here with the above sticks.

Thanks,
Dan

I have ACERT EMACHINE 250 NETBOOK THAT BROWSE VERY SLOW AND I AM USING WINDOW 7..PLS WHAT COULD BE THE POSSIBLE PROBLEM AND HOW CAN I RESOLVE IT. THANKS


In that case you should upgrade your Ram,memory and graphics card.If you are using 1gb Ram then upgrade it to 3gb by adding 2gb Ram.Then you can see the difference.You can also upgrade your memory like that.If you are using 500gb Memory then upgrade it to 1tb Memory.Then you can see and feel much difference.Upgrading graphics card is an optional thing.If you upgrade it you can see difference in gaming and in your system graphics.

If you do all this things surely your system will improve it's performance.

Good day. I just would like to inquire if the Palit 8400GS 512MB/DDR2 video card that I recently purchased is really compatible with the Elite Group P4M900T-M2 (REV:1.0) motherboard. I also upgraded...


Hi,

Yes, Palit 8400GS 512Mb/DDR2 video card is compatible. It was a great decision you've made that is to upgrade the RAM (memory) as well from 1Gb to 1.5Gb. Your P4M900T-M Motherboard is capable of handling upto 4Gb. You might want to consider to upgrade its memory to 2Gb, 3Gb, or to its full capacity, 4Gb. Definitely, it will greatly affect your computer's performance as you are distributing its resources (video, motherboard, memory, etc) to perform individually as it was designed for.



I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!

Dell computer.5 yrs.old. Very,very,slow.What can be done? Have dial up internet service. Also, what does memory upgrade mean?


Hi,

There's nothing you can do about your internet speed, dial up is dial up and is known to be slow. If you want fast internet then you would need broadband.

A memory upgrade would speed up the overall performance of the PC. For example: the computer may take 5 minutes to fully boot up and programs taking time to launch. This would not fully resolve but help it to be more responsive.

A memory upgrade is always recommended by me. I expect that your computer can be probably maxed out to 2GB of memory.


Regards.

Can I load Windows 7 on an eMachines T5048 with 2GB RAM, 160GB HDD, and 3Ghz CPU? It is Vista capable so shouldn't Windows 7 work?


Yes you can Load windows 7 on the Emachine with those specs. It should work well,much better than Vista (in my opinion). Your machine has all the specifications necessary for windows 7. The only thing is if you want all the graphics bells and whistles to be enabled you need a better graphics card. Something to keep in mind!
