Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

I have an emachine T3085. I was online on Google images when my computer reset itself. When it rebooted, it doesn't open Windows xp. Instead there is an error message that reads as follows: " A disk read error occurred Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart." I follow the instructions, however I am returned to the same message. I know how to enter the CMOS Setup Utility, but do not want to change any values as I'm am not familiar with this Utility. Please advise. Thank you for your tome and attention to this matter. Rich

The hard disk has just died and everything on it is lost.
You will have to buy a new one , install it in the place of the old one and then reinstall.

Emachines T4010 won't start up, says image checksum, and that an image is corrupted


Receiving a bad image checksum error message when upgrading a computer to Windows XP means that a Windows system file such as user32.dll is damaged. This error occurs when any damaged system file is encountered that isn't overwritten during Setup. The repair process for this error involves voiding the damaged dynamic link library file from the DOS command line prompt and replacing it with a new copy from the Windows XP disk.

Insert a clean Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (ME) or Microsoft Windows 98 Edition startup disk into the computer, and hold the reset button on the front of the computer until the system commences rebooting. Navigate the Windows startup menu with the keyboard's directional keys and select 'Start Computer with CD-ROM Support'. Hit "Enter" to continue. Write down your CD-ROM's drive letter on a piece of paper. At the command prompt, type "Drive:" without quotes (Drive should be replaced with the drive letter on which Windows is installed), and press "Enter." Type "cd windows\system32" without quotes, and press "Enter." Type "ren user32.dll user32.old" without quotes and again press "Enter." This renames your damaged user32.dll file so it is not recognized by the system, but still physically exists as a backup if needed in the future. Eject the Windows ME or 98 disk, and insert the Windows XP disk. At the command prompt, type "extract CDROMDrive:\i386\user32.dl_ Drive:\windows\system32\user32.dll" without quotes, replacing CDROMDrive with the CD-ROM's drive letter that you made a note of earlier, and replacing Drive with the system's drive letter on which Windows is installed. Hit "Enter" to execute the command. This process extracts a new copy of the user32.dll file to your hard disk, from the Windows XP CD. The new file will be found in the Windows/System32 directory. Restart the system by holding the reset button on the front of the tower until reboot commences.

Hi i forgot my administror password to my emachine. i didnt create a password reset disk either hav lots of files i need to retrieve. How can i fix this solution?


Search the Internet for "NT Offline Password Editor" -- this is free software.
If you can write these downloaded files to a CD-recordable disk,
and you can boot your computer from the CD, instead of from the 'C:' drive,
then you can delete the password for the 'Administrator' account.
Then, reboot, and logon to the 'Administrator' account, and set a new password.

Or, if there is another account with "administrative" privileges on the computer,
login to that account, open Control Panel, and open Users, and change the password
for the 'Administrator' account.

Try this, this should work for other versions of windows.

1. First reboot Windows XP in safe mode by re-starting the computer and pressing F8 repeated as the computer starts up.
2. Then (in safe mode) click Start and then click Run. In the open box type "control userpasswords2" (without the quotes, of course)
3. You will now have access to all the user accounts, including the administrators account and will be able to reset the lost password.
4. Just click the administrators user account (or the target user's account), and then click Reset Password. You will need to add a new password in the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and confirm by clicking OK.

Hope this works, if not just google windows password bypass, there are a few programs out there that can get around windows passwords, but they are more complicated

EMachine T3120 keeps rebooting


You can manually download drivers from eMachine's site: http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html

The operating system, you'll need a disk...and product key.

Sounds like a reformat may be your only option at this point. How far will the machine boot up? Can you boot up in safe mode?
