Heres what happened
I did a system restore where you pick to set the computer to a later date. I also did the system recovery with the CD/DVD disk that emachines gave me with the computer which is D3107 model. Anyways none of the above things set my computer back to the way it was.
So I did another system recovery except I did the destructive and I knew it would delete my user created files but it also deleted microsft works, the dvd player and video controller(vga), PCI stuff, basically everything that came with the computer except solitare, adobe, and other files like disk configuration and word pad. I also cant use the media player.
So how can I change to computer back to the way It was when I bought it?

Re: after system restore problems
The only way this can be done is if you use the system discs that you have supplied from e machines, but back up all documents as it will format the drive.
Insert the first dvd and leave it in the drive and restart your system, but as it's booting press either F2 or Del and you will get the bios screen, go to advanced menu and select your cdrom as first boot device, save settings and exit.
The sytem will reboot and prompt you to press enter to start with cd, and follow your disc instructions.

Looks like your keyboard has been hijacked. Turn your computer off and boot up in Safe Mode. When you hit the power button to turn the computer on immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. Once safe mode is up things will look different to you. The icons will be bigger and the screen will be darker, that's normal.
If this started happening to you recently say only a day or two ago then lets try doing a System Restore to a date and time before it started happening. Click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. When System Restore pops up look for an option that will allow you to pick additional restore points than the one you see. You want to pick a date and time that was before your keyboard started acting crazy. Let it run to completion then try typing again. Don't worry, System Restore does not destroy your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, (programs (unless you added a program after the restore point you selected)). System Recovery destroys everything and sets your system back to when you first purchased it.
go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/ system restore...restore to an earlier date click next...pick a date 2 to 3 mos back when your system was working just fine...click ok..systems is to reboot now..yes (your system will shut down and reboot and prompt you are you sure you want this to happen click yes....system is restore no disk feel free to rate the help
Hi, the best thing to do at this point is perform a "System Restore." Try to remember the exact "Date" before the problem occur, or once you start the System Restore, ("pick a date going back more than 5 days"), check the dates and see if any of the dates seem familiar. Pick the closest date prior to the "Sound going out!" Type: in the "Start Search Window" from the start menu: system restore; scroll to find, and open. Follow all the instructions carefully, and be very "patient," you cannot use the computer in any way during the "system restore" even after the computer "Restart" the system restore is still running to "fix the problem." When the process is finish the computer will let you know if the restore was successful or not? Do what is suggested if the restore didn't fix it." "Hope it works out for you; if so rating the help will let me know, thanks."
hi there, its a system glitch of windows. i experienced that problem before. heres the solution for that issue. boot your computer to safe mode. once you are in safe mode click start menu then all programs then click accessories then system tools then system restore. choose a date where your computer is working fine and restore the computer to that date.
Have you tried to use system restore on windows to put your computer back to a date before your problem started?
You do this by going to Start, Help and support, and click no system restore. a window will be open and chose restore and follow the prompts. You will be asked to pick a date from a calendar. Pick a date that shows a restore point that is before the date your computer started only starting in Safe Mode Only.
Please let me know if this helps you get thru this problem
There might be a problem during the installation of norton. What you can try to do is to perform a system restore and bring back the computer to an earlier date before you install norton or befor you get the problem. Here are the steps on how to do it:
restart the computer
press F8 key repeatedly when you see the VAIO logo until you get the screen that says Advanced boot option
use the arrow keys on the keyboard to highlight safemode then press enter
when it loads to safemode, go to start menu
go to all programs
click system tools the select system restore
on the system restore window, click next
in choose a different restore point, you will see list of dates or calendar where you can pick a date that you want to use in restoring back the computer settings.
click on the next button again
the computer will start restoring the settings back to the selected date which may take for a few mins(2mins to 10mins usually). system restore does not delete any personal files/documents. It only undo software applications, updates and settings.
Best bet is to do a system restore to a date before you have problems. Go into start>accessories>system tools>system restore. Your computer automatically creates restore points each time you log on..so once you are in system restore just pick a date that was before you had problems and your system will restore itself to that date...if you have any questions let me know..there are other options if that does not work so keep me updated..
for enabling system restore do this
Start the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) Navigate to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/System Restore Set Turn off System Restore and Turn off Configuration to Disable Right click on My Computer and Select Manage Navigate to Services and Applications/Services Navigate to System Restore Service and double click On the General tab set [Startup Type] to Automatic using the drop down list Click the Start button to start the service Close the Computer Management console Return to System Restore in Group Policy Editor and configure both to Not Configured Close Group Policy Editor and reboot the system.
