Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?
Emachine EL 1200 06w Restore ???
\015 Hello!Just wondering if there is a way out of this problem. I have a computer sitting here and no restore CDs. I've heard that there is a bootup keypress that will lead to a system restore, using restore files on a partition of the HD. Again, I don't have the cds.Tried to install XP using a regular XP Home disk, but the drivers I downloaded from Emachines for this model don't want to work! Could this be because of differences with XP HOme and XP Home "Nettops"?Thank you,Tim\015
\015\012I have no idea about the difference between XP Home and "Nettops", lol! But, I can help you restore :)
\015\012Reboot your PC, when the very first screen comes up (the manufacturer's screen, the one before the Windows splash) press and hold F8 (or tap repeatedly). This will take you to a boot-options menu. Choose "Boot in Safe Mode", allow windows to load.
\015\012When it is finished loading, you may be given an automatic choice of either running System Restore, or finish loading in Safe Mode. Choose System Restore, and restore to a date (on the little calander) sometime before your issues came up.
\015\012If you are not prompted automatically, and instead it loads to the desktop, go to Start Button ---> Help and Support ---> and under "Pick a Task" choose "Undo changes to your computer with System Restore". Again, pick a date and let 'er rip!
\015\012(you can also find it in Start Button ---> Programs ---> Accessories ---> System Tools ---> System Restore)
\015\012*****If you are not having problems with your boot, and simply want to restore, you can skip the F8 way and just go straight to restore from your normal desktop!
\015\012Whew! Hope some of this helps!
\015\012If you need any further assistance, please feel free to post a comment to this post and I will be glad to help!

I've lost the operating system on my emachine. Unfortunately, I tried to restore it using the restore disks from my OLD emachine. Of course it didn't work. I've called emachine support and it's an automated service and asks for a seriel number - which my machine does not have. It has several stickers with numbers but none of which, when I punch it into the phone, are valid. then it hangs up. There is no option to speak to a live person, even if you press "0".

I have an eTower 500is and I want to add a second HD or completely just replace the old one. I have the reboot disk from emachines to restore the system, does this restore my Windows 98 as well or is there a separate disk to restore the OS. I still have the product key for the OS and the book, but I do not recall the system coming with a windows 98 disk, just the restore disk. If I can reboot the whole system with OS using the emachines restore disk, how would I go about installing the new HD?
