Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

I bought an emachines computer about a year ago with vista home. My hard drive died, how do I install vista on a new drive, I have no install disk for vista.

Answers :

You'll need to contact the manufacturer.  After they confirm the product serial # (you should write down both the product number and Microsoft license # before you call) they will send out a recovery disk (they will probably charge you for them).  If the old hard drive is still installed, you can attempt a recovery by booting and hitting the ALT key while tapping the F10 key repeatedly to initiate the recovery mode which is stored in a partition on the hard drive.  The partition is probably still good although the "C" drive is no good.
