EMachine T1840 Restore

Hello,
I am trying to fix the above stated computer for this older lady. The T1840 was taking forever to boot, she started getting pop-ups constantly. I recommended a full restore after talking to her on the phone for a couple hours removing spyware and other stuff bogging her computer down. We put in the restore disc 1 and rebooted and got the restore started, About 6% into the Symantic Ghost then stopped and got an Error 347 dialog box. We tried this several times but got the same thing. Now when she boots up, The E-Machine start-up screen starts then immedietly goes to the blank black screen with the curser blinking in the top left corner. That is as far as it gets now, She can't even get to the windows XP start up. Do you have any suggestions on how to get it going. She did do everything in as for what the restore instructions that came with the computer. Thank You

Hi f14tomcataoc:
If you do some research on the Net, you will see that this model of computers have had problems with the motherboards. I have had one given to me. ...bad mother board.

If you want to keep the configuration of the machine, it may be best to get another small board to fit this machine. You will have to re-install the Windows system to get all the drivers and the bios to work.

EMachine recovery disk won't work invalid serial keeps restarting


Restart your computer and as its starting hold F8. This will take you into system restore. Choose Factory Default Restore. This will take your computer back to its original state when it was purchased. You will lose all files that were previously in the unit.

Emachine cant find operating system


Hello,

If it doesn't show a HD in bios, that means that either the HD isn't connected properly ie you have 2 devices set as slave or master on same ide cable and it cant detect the HD. Try temporarily disconnecting the CDroms or other devices that may be conflicting and see if that helps.

Hope that helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Pc keeps trying to start up but states it needs to reboot and won't. I have tried to insert the operation disc and it does not work either


it probably says insert suitable boot device. If you are trying to boot from a cd go into the bios and set the boot device priority to CD as priority. If hard drive then set hard disk to the top.

Ok,

first - You will delete everything on your harddrive with this method.

If possible- scan your disk for viruses.

get to a C prompt.



In most programs you will have an option to boot to C: or even C:>Windows
If you do not end up in C: you can get there by typing
c: and enter

MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN C:


-i.e. not the system drive

CHKDSK - enter

You have a large harddrive - this will take time.

We are checking to see if your hardrive is broken.

if the harddrive is ok

FORMAT YOUR DRIVE- this will take time.

Type FORMAT and hit enter

WHEN YOU DO THIS YOU WILL LOSE EVERYTHING!!!!!

Insert your system disk and follow the instructions provided by the manufacture

EMachine T1840 Will Not Boot


Well the first thing is first. Usually depends on the Operating system. If it is a later version of XP or even Vista. Try to boot it from the restore cd. They will usually tell you if your going to lose important information and ask you if you would like to back up the information. Based upon that you can move forward or not move forward.
