Use the WinXP cd and run a repair on the unit.

When you boot the XP cd, do not use the reopair on the first page. Click on install, then choose the repair option .

My desktop pc will not go to factory restore setting


Most people who own an eMachine computer will find that they will need to reset the computer at some point. It is a fact that PCs are more prone to viruses and malware than Macintosh computers. Sometimes the only way to restore an eMachine is to simply reset it. Fortunately, it is not a difficult process to reset an eMachine computer.

Turn off the computer. If the computer is in a state that it can be properly shut down, follow the normal shutdown process. On the other hand, if the computer is not reacting to anything, simply pull the cord from the wall. Restart the computer. Plug the computer back into the wall and press the Power button. Wait for the eMachine to reach the screen that reads "Press F11 to start recovery." Once this screen appears, press the F11 key on the keyboard multiple times to make sure that it registers. If the recovery screen does not come up, you will need to turn the computer off and back on again and attempt to press the F11 button again when the prompt appears. Select the proper option. After the recovery screen appears, there will be a list of recovery options. Scroll to the option that says "Full System Restore (with Backup)." Choosing this option will copy all of the contents of the hard disk to the c:\\My Backup directory. This will ensure that important files that have been created on the computer will not be deleted. However, the applications on the computer will need to be reinstalled. Allow the system restore to run its course. Depending on the age and effectiveness of the eMachine computer, it is possible this process could take up to 45 minutes. When the system restore is complete, the computer will restart itself. Reinstall applications. Any of the files created on the computer should be saved. However, the applications that created them need to be reinstalled.

Emachine T5062 will not start, keep getting other user sign in screen


Using a very critical timing on Windows Startup, usually within about 2-3 seconds after powering on the system, press the F8 function key until you successfully have the timing right that enables you to start the PC in Safe Mode...(the exact timing will typically be when the first text on the screen disappears and BEFORE the next screen appears, but each system is different by a tad).


Look for the option to start the PC with the last known good configuration settings....


That should fix the problem!

The power button completely broke off my emachine T3090 desktop. How can I get computer to start-up without this button?


You should be able To just reach in there and press it anyways. It depends what emachines uses, but normally it is a little white plastic thing that the button pushes, because it does nothing itself.

Emachince t3604 with vista wont boot just a blank screen tried to get bios screen safe mode etc. but nothing shows on the monitor. n e advice?


Make sure --- turn power off, leave off for 30 seconds. Power up again, holding the F2 key down. This WILL take your eMachines into Setup (BIOS). If it doesn't then your keyboard is most likely defective. If it does get you to setup, press F10 and Enter. Reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del and this time hold the F8 key down ... just hold it down till something happens, choose Start in Safe Mode with Network Support. Again if F8 doesn't work probly says Keyboard is bad. This is for whatever Operating System you are using.
