SOURCE: Wipe Hard drive without operating disks

Remember that wiping your hard drive will erase everything on your drive, restoring it to an 'as new' condition. Try to back up whatever you can before you restore the hard drive.

Factory restore


If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.


It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.


However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.


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.



hope this helps

I want to give away my D620 emachines laptop, but want to reset if first so all my personal information is erased. How do I do this?


In order to completely reset all personal information, the only failsafe way is to wipe the hard drive (and even this is not failsafe).
Look at this program. This program will allow you to make a bootable disk (eg USB). After you create the disk, reboot your computer and press the Boot Order key (on a Dell D620, its F12). Select USB. The Kill Disk program will load, allowing you to completely wipe your hard drive (eg. by overwriting everything with 0's). This will probably take a while, depending on the size of your hard drive.

Microsoft Windows asking me to backup the files in drives because hard disk has encountered a problem. How to solve the problem without backing up of the files?


There is no way you can avoid this because if the hard drive fails you will lose your data.
Do you want to risk losing your data?
The problem could be some bad blocks on the hard disk and Scan Disk may fix this problem BUT there is a risk this process may wipe out some data files or may require re-formating the hard drive.
The hard drive may be corrected by re-formatting the hard drive, but this process will wipe your data off this hard disk.

Emachine T1100 Emachine window then no system window


It sounds like the hard drive has been wiped or is dead or not connected. Check the power and control cables to the hard drive. Check drive with a maintenance diskette or CD. Replace drive if bad. If wiped or replaced, you need to re-install an operating system, such as MS Windows-XP, or Ubuntu (a free, downloadable, Debian GNU/Linux based operating system with a Windows-like user interface).

Wipe Hard drive without operating disks


Get in touch with your PCs manufacturer to get fresh set of disks (you can also download them from your mfg website), or check if it has a Utility Partition (usually press F10, F11 or F12 while booting up).

Eliminate all info on emachine PC


There's an excellent tool I use myself called KillDisk that is free, just download it and copy it to a bootable floppy disk, then use it to entirely wipe your whole hard drive, it just takes a few hours depending on your computer speed and drive size. It can be configured to wipe to Department of Defense security standards (takes longer) or just random 0s and 1s. I highly recommend this software, it's very easy to use and best - free!

Kudos to you for donating your PC, and for being smart enough to wipe the hard drive!

Please be sure to back up important emails and any data first!! :)
