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

Re: EMachine T1840 Restore
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
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
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

(1) Go to start menu
(2) Click on all programs
(3) click on Emachine
(4) click on Emachine recovery management
(5) Click on restore on the bar across the top
(6) click on restore to system factory default
It takes about 20 mins.
this will only works if the recovery partition is still intact or you havent deleted it or format it in anyway.
if the above process dont work, you can insert cd installer and choose repair then go to recovery option
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.
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.
You need to get hold of a boot CD - BartPE is great for this. Put the hard drive in another computer, and you'll find it more than likely blue screens, as the Drive Controller Drivers don't match the motherboard. Run a program called FIX-IDE, reboot, and it should at least boot. You might find that all sorts of other bits don't work though, but your apps should. Download the drivers for the new board and you should be off and away.
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.
