This is the place that you will find everything that you need for that system.

Driver Install;
Look on the Company site under drivers and downloads. You will have to put in your model first and then the serial number sometimes. After you find your product you will find the drivers and more programs if they have any.
After you download the driver you might have to put it in a folder for it to be stored in. After you put it in a folder, unzip it in that folder and it should have an .exe file. Click on this and it should do the install. If it does not do your install you can go to the Device manager and click on the device and tell it to install or upgrade the driver. Then you will need to direct it to the folder where you have the unzipped file. This should correct your problem.
You can click on my name from now on and I will do my best to answer your question within a day.

If this solved your problem, please rate this as a fixya.

    You rated this as thanks for trying? Why did you do that? Did this fix your problem or not? You asked for drivers for that system, and I sent you to the exact place to get them. I even explained how to install the drivers in case you needed directions. Your rating lowered my score and made me look like I did not help you. If you would have clicked the word (This) you would have went straight to the driver page.

    If this solved your problem it should have been rated as a fixya. If you needed more help you could have asked. I do not know what customer service that you talked to. This site does not have a customer service. We are independent people here to provide you free or paid expert advice. We do not work for E-machine.

    This is not Gateway in any way.
    You did not give information on a hard drive. The thing with the CD-Rom and everything is in is called a tower. The hard drive is inside. Gateway/ E-machine did not make the hard drive. Is is Maxtor, IBM, Seagate or something like that. Look up those names, they are hard drives. Click on the word This in the first line to get DRIVERS. You are asking for thine wrong thing if I could not help you.

    What make of hard
    drive is in it?

    Figure out what brand hard drive it is first. Then go to the website of the manufacturer.

    While you are on the site look for software for hard drive
    repair. It could be listed in many
    ways. Download the windows version if
    you have another computer to test this in.
    If you do not have another computer to test this in you will have to use
    the Dos version. The instructions will
    come with the software.

    Then you will go through these steps.

    Do you have another computer that you can use
    to check the hard drive? If you have another computer or access to
    another computer you can download a hard drive utility that can diagnose and
    possible repair the hard drive. Is it a SATA hard drive? If it is a
    SATA hard drive you can plug it directly into another computer that has a SATA
    cable. If it is not SATA you will need to buy a converter so that you can hook
    it up to the other computer. This will
    be an external slim hard drive enclosure. A desktop hard drive can be put in
    another desktop and used as a slave drive.
    Just make sure that you look at the back of the Hard Drive and make put
    the jumper on the slave pins. Then you can run the test through the other
    computer to test the Hard Drive. The
    test will let you know if the Hard Drive is bad or not. If you can see your files on the drive you
    might want to back them up before you start the test.

My e machine crashed i reinstall win xp now it will not connect to the internet using dsl device manager said that modem was working also there are no com ports showing

HI jar5. Did you install the ethernet driver after the Windows reinstallation? The DSL modem uses 2 interfaces. The USB and the Ethernet. YOu can use the modem´s Driver to use it thru the USB or you can use another computer go to the emachines´website and under support or drivers select your model and download the drivers because probably you also dont have sound, etc. I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast - free support today. Thank you :D

first - You will delete everything on your harddrive with this method.

If possible- scan your disk for viruses.

get to a C prompt.

In most programs you will have an option to boot to C: or even C:>Windows
If you do not end up in C: you can get there by typing
c: and enter


-i.e. not the system drive

CHKDSK - enter

You have a large harddrive - this will take time.

We are checking to see if your hardrive is broken.

if the harddrive is ok

FORMAT YOUR DRIVE- this will take time.

Type FORMAT and hit enter


Insert your system disk and follow the instructions provided by the manufacture

E machin w3502 wont work at all

I am not sure what you mean "if you reboot you will loose all the data" or do you mean reformat your hard drive? You should be able to reboot your system in safe mode which will load only the minimal drivers for your system to work. Safe mode can be used to fix a lot of problems and should not cause you to loose any data. Once you have your system up in safe mode you can use your recovery console to help you troubleshoot and fix many problems including corrupt files from viruses or use " last known good configuration" etc. In the future it is always a good idea to back up your system and burn the back up to a disk, since you have a business this should be done every two days. You can also make a boot disk that can help you if you encounter a problem in the future. Another option is cloning your hard drive which you can buy thrid party software that will make this easy, but you will need to have another hard drive and the software to do this. If your friend has more technical knowledge about computers than you, he should be able to help explain the things I mentioned. Hope this helps, please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
