Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I have a very slow running emachine circa 2003 but it should be sufficient and more efficient if it had less processes running and any spy ware ad ware and I have the manual for the computer and it says to put in the recovery disc before windows boots up and that certain screens will pop up and they do and then it say to push 1 for yes to re install windows and lose the data and I do and it says reading some drive letter and then it goes to like a prompt that says a abort c cancel r retry I put retry and it pops up again ?
If the recovery disk loads and asks you for the confirmation then the issue might be the computer is looking for a 2nd CD with the data which is needed. See if you have a #2 CD or something like that to continue the restore process.

It sounds like your recovery disk is damaged or scratched.
Hold the disk, data side up, and look for any small scratches or finger print smudges.
You can clean it with a soft cloth and warm water, by wiping from the inside out (don't wipe "around" the disk).
If it has scratches, you can find a disk repair device at most Audio / Electronics stores (like music stores) and try cleaning the scratches off that way.
If the damage is too severe, you may have to see if you can find a different recovery disk, or you may have to pruchase a copy of Windows to install.
