There is little we can do in this case. however I recommend you try one of these:

1. download CD recovery software like CDCheck and try to recover the CD (link here) http://www.softwarepatch.com/software/cdrecovery-security.html

2. ask for a new set of rec CD from manf.

3. use the old-school method to format and reinstall OS and drivers

After you have put the disk in your optical drive, and when asked, choose Repair. (Non-Destructive Installation)
This will repair the basic Windows files. (System 32 )

Borrow that CD-ROM from any friend who does have one -- you don't need to have your "original" disk.

Or, telephone eMachines, and order a replacement set of "System Restore" disks.
Probably $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier shipping.

I want to restore my pc to its factory settings


Take the original "System Restore" set of CD/DVD disks that were shipped with your computer, and reinstall Windows.

Some brand-name manufacturers (Dell, IBM, HP, COMPAQ) will accept telephone-orders for that set of disks, to match the disks that originally were shipped with the computer.

Factory setting restore


If you have a Cd Rom called a Recovery Disk that usually comes with the computer. You can reformat the computer to it's original configurations. You will lose all data. It will be as if you took it right out of the box. Or on some computers you can do a Recovery only withour reformatting the PC. you will have to reinstall all updates , programs, etc. you turn off the computer and install the disc then you restart the computer. The disk will give you the option to Recover Only or Recover and Format.
