Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

PC W3623 Vista Home Basic Windows stopped working after U/G installed.

PC does not start. A disc for re-install the Op Sys does not work either.
The problem begun after an UpGrade code KB93....... was automatically installed and Windows Stop to avoid damages to the System. A CD to restore to factory settings was ordered but I think will not work either since after the order I found the CD that came with the system and is not working. Microsoft is not able to help.

    Solution suggested extremely expensive with partition involved and software installations tasks.



    Amazingly, not being a technician, I solved the problem using an old CD (actually a set of 2) that came with a PC with Windows-Me that immediately asked if I wanted the HD C: erased; clicked yes and a Windows-Me was installed instead of the corrupted Vista, of course with the caveat that was not supported any longer by Microsoft. Watching the process I saw that some utilities from Norton software called Ghost were involved. After that obsolete Windows was in place, I inserted the CD with the Vista Home Basic that re-installed the original Vista, however short of 56 updates!. Still uneasy, I clicked to accept those updates with no major glitches. Now I am in business again, sort of, since I lost settings and bookmarks, etc.

    Maybe my unorthodox solution can be applied to other cases.

Windows Vista business & Home Basic


Hi,
No you can't downgrade once Vista business is installed, what i do recommend you do is when Vista business asks you for the product key, if you input "your" key for home basic it should theoretically install home basic for you as most of the install DVD's are multi installers (basic, premium, business and ultimate)

See if that helps you.

Problems with used Emachine W3623 Windows vista Home basic


Simply put, No.

Chances are the performance of vista on an eMachine is an ugly sight anyway. My advise would be to downgrade to XP or try a good solid Linux distribution like Ubuntu. It will preform faster and be more stable that it ever was with Vista. Don't get me wrong I am not a total vista hater but it is a hog.

Best of Luck

SETTINGS FROM FRENCH TO ENGLISH


There are three areas you can (or cannot) set languages.
1. Operating system (Windows most probably) Unfortunatelly you cannot change the operating system language. (Except Vista Ultimate and Vista Enterprise edition and having the right MUI)
Other windows languages are not changeable without re-installing the current op.sys. and of course you have to have the right language based op. sys. on cd or on dvd.
2. BIOS language change: It can be change if the BIOS flashable and the BIOS provider released the required version in your language. (Mostly default language is english) Some BIOS can be set to other language without flashing it. Look in the BIOS menu first. It's not easy to find if its set to another language but try every sub menu than you will find it.
3. The regional and keyboard settings. Its a basic setup in the control panel--->Regional and Language (GLOBE ICON) ---> firs and second tab you have to choose the desired language.
