    Hi tincupjo- what happened to your system that you want to do a restore? You said it asks for disk 1, was this the result of pressing F11 right it starts to boot? Let me know your answers so I can help you out. Yhanks.

Usually system restore does not require you using a CD of the OS but if you're going through system recovery, it will.

1.Click Start.
2.Point to All Programs.
3.Point to Accessories.
4.Point to System Tools.
5.Click System Restore.
6.Follow the instructions on the wizard.

Product key e machines model EL 1200


Hi,

You do not need any product key to install Operating System in Emachines as it uses OEM versions of OS. If you have Recovery Disk you can use it.

The recovery disk consist of 2 DVD, the first is the System Disk (this is first disk to insert), once finished loading, it will ask to insert the second CD (Application and Drivers disk), if in case both are not working, then follow the below mentioned steps:

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps: Turn OFF the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

You can also place order for a set of Recovery disk by calling Acer Technical support at 1 800 816 2237

Thanks and regards,

How can i perform a factory restore on my emachine w3619 without my start up disk..my computer will not load my sims 3 game and it used to be able to i tried everything (including system restore) to fix it


F11. every manufacturer has a magic little button to push. E-Machines uses F11. When it first starts up, press F11. There won't be a prompt for it, just keep tapping the F11 key until it asks if you want to do a system restore. it should bring you to a factory restore utility. Don't forget to back up all you data first. When you do the restore, it erases all your saved data.

Please what it is the procedure to restore the default factory system without disk


The first thing you need to do is save all of your pictures and files that you have on your computer to your email or upload them to another account that stores them. When you factory reset an Acer, it wipes it clean of everything you have downloaded on it. THIS IS PERMANENT ONCE FACTORY RESTORE IS DONE.

Turn your computer off.
Restart your computer.
When the Acer screen comes up, press Alt+F10.
Keep tapping F10 repeatedly while keeping the Alt button pressed down.
You will be asked how you want to reset your computer.
Press Factory Restore.
This may take up to an hour.

If you are asked to enter a pass code, enter your pass code or 000000.

Hit okay.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If you are tired of using recovery discs and having to deal with that whole issue, there is another way to factory restore your computer.


The first thing you need to do is save all of your pictures and files that you have on your computer to your email or upload them to another account that stores them. When you factory reset an Acer, it wipes it clean of everything you have downloaded on it.

Turn your computer off.
Restart your computer.
When the Acer screen comes up, press and hold Alt+F10.
Keep pressing F10 repeatedly while keeping the Alt button pressed down.
If computer starts up normally, repeat these steps until you are asked to reset
You will be asked how you want to reset your computer.
Press Factory Restore.
This may take up to an hour.

If you are asked to enter a pass code, enter your pass code or 000000.

Hit okay.

Remember, this may take a few attempts, but this does work for Acers! You may choose to not restore it to factory and restore it to a previous date when you were not having issues. Keep those options in mind.

How do i reset my toshiba laptop without a recovery disk? i tried to hold the "0" and power key but when it came back on the recovery system program did not come up


Power it down. When you restart the laptop start tapping f12 until a screen pops up saying "DO YOU WANT TO DO A SYSTEM RESTORE" Once this system restore window opens, stop tapping and just follow the instructions. Some of the older computers may ask you for the restore discs so have those ready. Most newer computers do not need restore discs.

The only thing to try now, is to get a Windows install DVD, put DVD in drive and boot from the DVD, then try to install with that, when you get to installing and it asks if you want to Format, do so, format Full NTFS. Then try to proceed to installing. If this too fails then you will need to replace your hard Drive, quite a simple matter.

Restore emachine


Your machine has two ways of repair: SYSTEM RESTORE and SYSTEM RECOVERY. System restore is a Windows utility that rolls the machine back to a point where the machine worked before the problem. System recovery is an eMachines tool that puts the machine back the way it was when you first got it. Restore wont delete your data, recovery will and can. If the problem is catastrophic, and youve backed up your data off of the machine, use the recovery option. Your recovery partition (or a recovery disk) is needed to do this, and it involves pressing a key while the computer boots up. Check your documentation for your model of machine.
