Emachine 170 I am trying to format my mothers Emachine but cannot find the driver disc, I have looked on the internet but cannot locate anywhere that does the driver disc. It is an old model (2002). Do you know where I could get one, or even a web site that does them.

Probably a bit to late for ya now, but if it's an Emachines 170 SKU# 683066 then I have both re-format CD's for them. CD1 and the Driver disc. If you still want it then email me:

welshdragon465@aol.com.

PS. As far as I know they are just for the 170, but I have used them on other Emachine PC's

Regards,

Dave

My webcam doesnt work


Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right.

But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including webcams, use DirectX for video processing.

Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer

If you still have no webcam installed

Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."

The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.

Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and then click "Next."

Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you'd prefer to have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your laptop manufacturer.

Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.

Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows Update, if this was your choice.

An active Internet connection is required for Windows to successfully do this.
Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.

Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without using the Windows Update search feature.

Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My Documents" folder.

Choose the option "Install the software automatically (Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press "Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.

The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.

Choose the option "Install the software manually" in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and install it from there.

Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

If it is USB CD_Drive you can plug it in a USB port of the computer. You may have to install drivers, but usually Windows Update can download them from the Internet.

MY EMACHINE T3306 is saying cd/dvd isnt present in my system. Im trying install windows vista. need help!!!!!


This could be due to a missing or corrupt driver. To verify (assuming you are using XP), right click "My Computer" select "Manage". On the left-hand side of the window, select "Device Manager". Check tosee if your installed device or any device for that matter is located under the heading CD/DVD drives. If there are no entries and you do have a CD/DVD drive installed on the computer, try restarting to see if it will reinstall the device. If this does not work, the drive may not be connected or is bad. Turn off the computer, open the computer and you will see a ribbon cable coming out of the back of the drive. Verify that this cable is plugged into both the drive and motherboard securely (the slots will look like long, slim rectangular boxes with tiny metal rods standing up inside of them). If the drive is securely connected and the machine does not see the device when turned on, the drive is probably bad. If the device manager does have an entry for the drive and there is a question mark next to it, this means the driver for the drive is missing or corrupt. I have checked the emachines website and they do not have drivers for CD/DVD drive for your model. You will have to check the drives manufacturer's website to see if they have a driver for you drive.

Can you play PC DVD ROM on an emachines E4026 Desktop PC. because i just had a game brought for me & when i try to load it , the computer reads it as a blank disc Any help appreciated ...


Based on the one and only specs sheet I could find for this model of emachine, it does have a DVD-ROM drive. So in theory it can. Does the unit play DVD Movies? if yes then it should work, try rebooting and then putting the disc in again. I assume the disc is clean and scratch free as the game is new.

If the OS on your computer has ever been reinstalled, you may be missing the driver for the drive, in which case windows would treat it as a generic CD-ROM drive, and not be able to read DVDs, you can get the drivers for the drive from the emachines website if this is the case.

When attempting to copy blu ray disc message reads disc not detected.(emachine e525)


Although the same shape and size, Blue Ray disks are a completely different format to DVD's and CD's. You drive won't recognise them

You'll need to get a Blue ray RW drive, and it doesn't stop there. Because there a great deal more information on a blueray disk, you'll need several dvd disks to copy the info to a DVD.

Bluerays hold about 25Gb of data, DVD's hold 4.7 GB and CD's hold 700Mb data.

We need to download drivers for our emachine, but we cannot connect to the internet with that computer. Is there anyway we can download drivers to a disk from another computer and install them that way?


Many drivers can be downloaded and burned to a CD or transferred to a external memory source. They are usually compacted files that need to be extracted which can be done on your PC that doesn't have internet after downloading them on a different computer and transferring them to an alternate memory source. Simply download the drivers and transfer them to a jump drive or burn them to a CD and then run them from the other PC.

I cannot open cd's on my emachine 4260. Can you help? The discs have data on them (Knitting patterns)


It could be a proiblem with the cd-rom drive or the computer. You can try and run a cd lens cleaning kit in the drive to try and clean the lens. Also try using a different SATA or ATA cable for the drive depending on which one it has(the cable could be bad). I would take out the cd-rom drive and try installing it into another computer to verify if the drive is working. If the drive acts the same in a different computer then replace the drive. If it does not then there might be a hardware problem with the e-machine motherboard.

Recovery disk


If you're running a desktop all you will need is an XP disc. For all the other drivers you can take the side of your tower off and you'll see a mother board number. It usually has number and letters combined on it. If you google those numbers and and drivers after those numbers and letters you should find all that you require. If you're using a lap top you can still get an XP disc and instead of looking for the mother board numbers type in the name of your laptop including the numbers and add the word drivers and that should help you as well. I hope this will solve your problems
