Question about Acer PC Desktops
Remove and plug your ram back in. You should be able to run set up. Your Ram could either defected or need to be resett in its slot. To do this : On page 36 of the travelmate user manual: 1 Turn off the computer, unplug the AC adapter (if connected) and remove the battery pack. Then turn the computer over to access its base. 2 Remove the screws from the memory cover; then lift up and remove the memory cover. 3 (a) Insert the memory module diagonally into the slot, ben (b) gently press it down until it clicks into place. 4 Replace the memory cover and secure it with the screw. 5 Reinstall the battery pack, adn reconnect the AC adapter. 6 Turn on the computer. The computer automatically detects and reconfigures the total memory size.

im assuming you have the recovery disk
Restart the computer and press the pause/break key on the keyboard.
This key will slow down the boot process and allow you to see the motherboard BIOS access key that you'll need to press in order to access the motherboard BIOS.
Press the respective motherboard access key and check the motherboard BIOS for a boot sequence.
Change the settings in the boot sequence so the primary boot device or the first boot drive is the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive.
Insert the system recovery disc into the disc drive.
Restart the computer and allow it to boot up before doing anything.
A black screen should show up with the words Press any key to boot from disc CD/DVD.
Press a key to have the system boot from the recovery disc.
Allow the system to load.
Follow the on-screen instructions on how to install the rest of the operating system.
There are many different settings for you to choose.
If the operating system is just a little out of whack, you can choose to repair it.
The system recovery disc will contain important drivers and software for all the components connected to the computer system.
If you do not have a system restore disc you can search the Internet for drivers and software that are packaged for your specific eMachines model.
Restore the BIOS to their default settings so the hard drive is primary boot sequence.
This is an optional step.
You can leave the CD-ROM drive as the primary boot drive, but it will slow down the startup process by a few seconds.
hope this helps

Acer are cheap and they don't provide you with a factory restore disk. You need to make this factory disk yourself. I know how to do this, but it is to much for me to type and here is a really really good reference site for you to visit to get instruction to make your own factory restore disk. After making that restore disc, pop the disk into your laptop and turn of your laptop and restart and the factory restore program should start, if it should not start then go into your bios menu and have it boot from your Dvd-Rom and save, after full restoration, make sure you turn your boot priority back to where your Os is being installed, exm hard drive.
