Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have a T-3104, and recently got a virus that restarts my computer when I try to run the anti virus, or try to delete temporary files. I tried to reinstall software with the recovery disc, but it tells me "no operating system installed, or partition corrupted" just 5% into creating the partition. I cannot get past this problem, and my computer is now stuck in a constant attempt to recover whenever I restart. Any ideas? Thanks.
Try bootdisks.com and make a bootable windows 98se floppy. Boot the PC and once at the C:\ (dos prompt) type FDISK
you'll have to check "Y" to enable large disk support. Hit option 3 (remove partition) and option 4 for non-dos parition (since 95% of the time it's an NTFS). You will need to verify your selection by typing (Y)es. In some rare occasions, you might have to type in the VOLUME LABEL which will be displayed on the top of the screen on the same line as the HDD information.
Once you delete it, the line displaying the HDD information will disappear. that's an indication of a successful partition deletion.
there might be more than one partition which you could safely delete since you did mention having the recovery CD's at hand. Try it and let's hope this works.
