If your running xp pro or vista ultimate you can right click on my computer select manage then user. make sure the user you want is turned on and the other off by right clicking on each user selecting properties and checking or unchecking disable. if the user you want isn't located there then you did a fresh install and the only thing you can do is copy + paste your files into your new account. you could have done a windows repair without losing info. all it would do is reinstall windows files, but too late for that. if this doesn't work please specify on your problem

Wipe the computer memory and restore factory settings


You can recover any files deleted from computer. best thing you can do that to recover any file is by using recovery software, but you must act quickly before that file will gone forever because everything that you do, installing, downloading anything you do can make this file lost forever, my recommendation is Asoftech Data recovery which helped me before, download from
Deleted Files Recovery Software

Factory restore


If your particular eMachines model didn't come with recovery media or you just misplaced the disc, you don't want to be caught without a means to restore the operating system.


It's all too easy to accidentally download a virus or experience any number of problems that make your computer unstable.


However, there is an option for restoring your computer without the original recovery disc by using the pre-installed recovery software.


Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer.



Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings.



Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner.



Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor.

Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."



Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab.



Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default."



Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process.



Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart.



Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your internet settings.



hope this helps

Best Solution;
1. Power off phone
2. Press and hold Home Button ( middle ) + Volume Up + power on button
3. Wait for 5 second until Android System Recovery menu appear
4. There are 4 options

reboot system now
apply update from sdcar
wipe data/factory reset
wipe cache partition

5. Move the options to " Wipe data / factory reset " using volume down ( - ) button and menu button to confirm, because the touchscreen doesn't work in reovery mode
6. After the process done, phone will reboot.

I want to restart everthing


Are you trying to take the system to factory default settings?
what you need to do is restart the system and keep tapping F11 which will take you hp recovery manager and choose the option that says destructive recovery which will completely wipe off everything and the system will go back to day one settings when you got the laptop on the very first day.

Hi John.

F11 process is not working and you get a NTLDR missing when you turnon the notebook.

Steps to be performed:
1. Perform hard drive self test from BIOS.
2. If it is passed then use retail version of operating system disk to install XP or try using new recovery disks which nay cost you $15.00.

In your notebook model this issue appears if there is any issue with the hard drive.
