It is possible for the Windows operating system on your eMachines computer to have a critical failure. If the operating system on your eMachines computer is failing, you can use your recovery discs to restore your computer. Recovery discs come with your purchase of an eMachine, and contain your operating system and all your basic drivers. You can recover your eMachines W series in about an hour.

Turn off your computer and press "F8" to enter the BIOS menu. Tab over to the "Boot Sequence" or "Boot Order" menu. Move your optical drive to the top of the list. Press "F11" to exit and save changes. Insert your recovery disc into your optical drive, then restart your computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Select the "Full Recovery" option from your recovery disc menu. Allow the recovery procedure to complete. Hope this helps.

Can't install windows


If there is a boot menu you may have to load the CD drive from there and the restore disk will load. Check the boot screen when the PC is first turned on and look for restore option and which key to press. It is usually F10 or F11. If all else fails press F8 on start before the first boot screen vanishes and select the prompt option. then load the CD from there after you ID the drive letter.

I tried to do a system recovery by restarting the computer and holding the f11 key but it wont go in to the restore screen mode


You have to keep pressing it during the boot sequence. Can you get F8 to work? You can try having windows restore your last known good configuration.

When i turn on my computer it glitches and restarts repeatedly. need to do a system restore, but nothing seems to work. it is an emachines EL1200

What triggered the problem? do you know? did you recently change anything? install any new programs? etc.
Do you get any error messages? Do you see the windows loading screen and then it just reboots again?

Try this first: HIt F8 when it is trying to boot, and if you get to select boot using Last Known Good settings. See if that helps. If not we can try something more advanced.

My laptop wont turn on fully


you could have a boot virus. to restore, switch on laptop and repeatedly press F8 key until you get a boot option screen. you can select the bottom option, to go back to the last settings that worked. if this doesn't fix the problem, then you can restore your laptop using either the F10 or F11 key when you switch on your laptop. one of these keys takes you into system restore. you may have to press the Alt key + F10 or F11.

Machine won't boot to win xp


You have two choices:
1) Insert your e-machine system disk and boot from it. It should ask you if you want to install Windows or repair it. Choose R for repair. Then when you get the black screen with white writing, choose your windows installation (usually #1) and then press enter when prompted for a password. When you get the c: prompt, type chkdsk /r
This might fix it.
If not, then try the process again and don't choose "r" but continue through the screen when it asks you to accept the Microsoft agreement by pressing F8. Then on the next screen choose to repair the existing version of Windows. It will reinstall the system files and may actually fix your problem.
