Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My friend has a emachine desktop. When he is on it it sometimes will just shut down. He said it has now crashed. When he runs the recovery disk it will read part of it then the power button will cut off, but the processor light keeps blinking and the screen is blank orange. What does he need to do? Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like the unit is over heating. let the computer cool for awhile. once you boot go into bios. select hardware monitor and watch the cpu temp. if the temp rises quickly maybe some thermal paste will do the job.$4 If the temp dose'nt rise fast and the unit still powers off then you might need a power supply. $25

HOW TO RESTORE MY E MACHINE WITH OUT A DISK OR TO DOWN LOAD ONE


Click Start/My Computer and see if you have a drive label Recovery. If so turn off the computer and immediately hit the F1 thru F12 key repeatedly until you get into Recovery. The most common key among manufacturers to get into recovery is F11.

Sometimes there might be a Recovery in the Program List. Click Start/Programs and look for Recovery. Sometimes the Recovery will be inside of one of the eMachines Folders.

You can always go to your manufacturers website and see if they offer a restore disk and you can try eBay.

My computer has crashed and I need a recovery cd to restore the system. Is there anywhere to download the recovery?


You can go here:

http://www.emachines.com/support/drivers.html

Enter your serial number, model and make of computer and find all the files that your computer came with originally. You may need to burn them to a disk using another computer. You can also order new recover disks from them.

Good luck!

After reinstallion, no emachines recovery/original programs/apps


Your recovery software is usually comprised of more than one disk. You should have one windows disk in addition to the eMachines disk(s). Complete recovery requires that you use all the disks, in order to return to original state. If you are missing programs, it is because you did not use all the disks.

Option A: Go here to order a complete set of recovery disks:

https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=emachines

You will need your machine serial number to ensure you obtain the correct recovery disks; they are about 20$ plus shipping.

Option B: Use your eRecovery: Restart the computer and when it begins booting up, you have to hit repeatedly/hold down a key to enter the Recovery management menu. As for the key, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try the F10 key for starters. If it's not that one, try the F12, or the F8 key. That should get you pointed in the right direction. Just follow the screen prompts, and choose RECOVERY, not RESTORE. Also make sure you choose Recovery without disks.

Reply if you need more help.

Hope this helps.
