How do i restore back to factory settings with out the cd ?
The only way to restore back to factory settings without the CD is by booting into your Recovery Partition, IF YOU HAVE A RECOVERY PARTITION. If you do have a recovery partition, then you should see an option for booting from that when you first start up your computer. It should be listed with Setup and Boot Menu options. Press the key that is displayed for entering recovery. From there you can choose what type of recovery you are wanting to do. If you know that you have a recovery partition, but don't see it listed when your computer first starts up, then start tapping F8 when you first boot your computer. You should see a black screen with white text. From there you can choose Safe Mode or whatever. You should see something labeled Recovery or Utilities in that area if you really have a Recovery partition. If you don't see this, then you will have to go to emachine.com and request a recovery disc from them. They will likely ask you alot of questions in order to get the disc. Usually it costs between $20 - $50 for the recovery disc. The only other option you have is to go to Staples or some other store and buy the Operating System you want.
There is another way. Once you are in Windows, go to start/All Programs/eMachines/eMachines Recovery Management.
\015\012Click on the Tab that says Restore, there you have the option to restore back to factory settings.
