Before doing anything start your PC and keep pressing F8 slowly. A screen will appear with options choose Last Known Good Configuration to see if it cures your problem.

I can't start windows vista


If your computer is stuck in a loop whereWindows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. If no other options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean) installation of Windows will permanently delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies.

How to restore to factory settings


  • Use a memory device such as a rewritable DVD 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 and mouse. Bring up the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."

  • Navigate to "eMachines" and then "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the tab labeled "Restore," which is located at the top of the window.

  • Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and then 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 appears 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.

    Borrow that CD-ROM from any friend who does have one -- you don't need to have your "original" disk.

    How can i perform a factory restore on my emachine w3619 without my start up disk..my computer will not load my sims 3 game and it used to be able to i tried everything (including system restore) to fix it


    ask emachines for duplicate dvds of your startup disks.
    your os is Genuine Windows Vista® Home Basic
    any copy of that would work, but you wouldn't have the cyberlink or other software

    before doing that
    you may first try checking for viruses or startup programs
    and then reinstalling any game software

    maybe your sims is broken. verify that it works on another machine

    After reinstallion, no emachines recovery/original programs/apps


    Your recovery software is usually comprised of more than one disk. You should have one windows disk in addition to the eMachines disk(s). Complete recovery requires that you use all the disks, in order to return to original state. If you are missing programs, it is because you did not use all the disks.

    Option A: Go here to order a complete set of recovery disks:

    https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=emachines

    You will need your machine serial number to ensure you obtain the correct recovery disks; they are about 20$ plus shipping.

    Option B: Use your eRecovery: Restart the computer and when it begins booting up, you have to hit repeatedly/hold down a key to enter the Recovery management menu. As for the key, it varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but try the F10 key for starters. If it's not that one, try the F12, or the F8 key. That should get you pointed in the right direction. Just follow the screen prompts, and choose RECOVERY, not RESTORE. Also make sure you choose Recovery without disks.

    Reply if you need more help.

    Hope this helps.

    I have an emachine model# W3609. It's very slow


    Back up all of your photos, documents, folders, files, favorites (bookmarks) and anything else you would like to keep and reinstall after the system recovery. Use a CD, DVD, flash drive, MP3 or external hard drive to store your data temporarily.
    Click on the "System Recovery" icon (usually found within the start menu) and begin the process by following the on-screen prompts.
    Click on "restore" and note the warnings about losing all of your data. Wait for the computer to complete the process of erasing the hard drive and creating a new partition.
    Insert the emachines recovery disk in the CD tray when prompted. This will start the process. There are usually one or two disks involved and the computer will let you know which ones to insert when and will even eject the tray automatically in most cases. You may have to restart at least three times, do not be alarmed by this and keep the disk in until you are prompted otherwise.

    Example of Windows Installation Install Windows on the new partition and follow the prompts on your screen. Be sure to choose the largest partition, the one with the most kb available. There are usually two to choose from, as you have deleted the other ones in the steps prior.
    Reinstall all of your backed up data and any software programs you are currently using, including the printer and Internet, if needed. Be sure all of your drivers and hardware is working properly, as they have been reinstalled as well during the recovery procedure. OR
    1. Place the recovery disk that came with the eMachines computer into the CD or DVD drive. Restart the computer.

      Click "Next" when the operating system restoration screen appears. Click "Repair Your Computer" and then select "Next."

      Locate your eMachine's current operating system in the list of available operating systems, such as "Windows Vista." Click the appropriate choice and then choose "Next."

      Select "Load Drivers" and wait for the drivers to finish installing. Select "System Restore" and then click "Next."

      Scroll down through the list of available restore points. Select the first restore point if you want to completely revert the computer to factory settings. Select a later restore point if you just want to roll back any changes to your computer to an earlier date.

      Click "Next" and then select "Finish." Click "Yes" and then choose "Restart" to restore the eMachines computer.

    Windows doesn't recognize recovery partition after os reinstall


    The issue you are having involves using multiple systems,...If your emachine came with vistan and you installed xp, you voided your warranty status...However remove your dual boot and stick to vista if you wanna keep your restore partition working properly.....On a side note theres usually conflict with running OEM OS's on dual boot...typically it doesnt work and if it does it doesnt work like you want it to! so here is what you can do..Call Emachine up and fib to them a bit (just alittle) tell them that you cought a nasty bug and it messed with your restore partition and now you cant restore your pc....request the factory programing discs (if you ask nicely they'll hook you up 99.99% of the time) you get the discs so you can reprogram the pc to factory spec if you ever wanted to. Now use a retail version of vista and a retail version of xp. and create your dual boot, feel free to remove your restore partition if you want (cause you have the factory programing discs if you wanna go back to stock stuff YAY) I hope this helps!

    I want to restore my Acer Aspire M1100 desktop computer back to factory settings. I have the disks from Acer, one is a System Disk and one is a Recovery Disk. Is there any way to restore/reinstall Vista...


    Hello,

    If you used the restore disk on your computer it will erase all files, and all your programs. the restore Factory settings means "ALL" settings the time you created the CD for the restore.

    If you have an individual Vista Installer CD with the Serial you can use it and use restore option.

    Thank you for using Fixya
    Hope this helps.
