Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
After retoring my w6246 w restore disk during the setup of windows, computer hangs on screen "name your computer" I have re ran the restore disks, and have tried everything I can think of to get around problem. PLEASE HELP
Hanto is correct in saying "You shouldn't have to give it a name if you don't want to. Windows will self-name the comuter based on a formula that it decides on." but the install should not freeze regardless of which option.
Have a good look at the "data" side of your restore CD, make sure it is spotless with no scratches. If it is damaged see can you "borrow" an OS CD which matches the OS product on the license sticker which you will find stuck to the PC from someone else (idealy an OEM copy). You will be able to load windows using this and entering your "KEY". You may have some driver issues, but if your PC came with a 2nd Driver CD you won't have any problems, otherwise you may have to download them from the PC manufacturers site.
If this solution is of any help please remember to rate it.

Tips for a great answer:
Turn Off the computer now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding Alt key & keep on tapping F10 key ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer) or
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually delete or the F2 key this will differ depending on which bios you have
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
hope it helps
