Having problems with your E-Machines M5305 Notebook ?

Can't restore my computer

\015 I have an Emachines M5405 and I'm trying to restore it with the DVD included with the computer. The restore program loads up fine and it will start copying files. However, when it gets to about 93% the computer suddenly shuts down. When I restart it and let it boot into Windows, the windows load screen displays for a short while, then the computer reboots and continues to do this in an endless cycle.\015

Here's your GEEK-steer …
\015\012
\015\012Is the DVD you mention the manufacturer/reseller's recovery disk? You'll readily know because its user interface screens will display NON-microsoft business name such as eMachine's, etc. Or is it an actual Microsoft Windows Operating System (XP, Vista, etc.) installation disk?
\015\012
\015\012If it is not the Microsoft Windows disk AND you have no other means of recovery/restore [such as a drive image backup (Norton Ghost, etc), registry recovery (i.e., ERUNT), etc.], then you'll need to perform an in-place Windows "Repair install" (if XP)/"System Restore" (if Vista). However, you can only do this if you have a Windows installation disk. Did one come with this particular eMachine computer?
\015\012
\015\012If you did NOT receive one from the vendor who sold you your M5405, you NEED TO CONTACT THEM AND INSIST UPON ONE. This is an ALL-TOO-COMMON situation that all system buyers need to put a stop to by not accepting anything less than their own disk [for the very reason you need it now!].
\015\012
\015\012If you get nowhere with that (or you can't wait for it), you CAN use any other Windows disk you can get your hands on from someone you know with the same version you're running (XP, Vista, etc.). However, YOU WILL NEED YOUR WINDOWS AUTHENTIFICATION CODE to complete the repair. You can NOT use the user's code from whom you borrow the disk.
\015\012
\015\012Assuming you have (or will soon have) a Windows installation disk:
\015\012
\015\012Insert in into your CD/DVD drive, then boot your system. Then, for step-by-step instructions, refer to the following as applicable:
\015\012
\015\012XP:
http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
There's a lot of very busy clutter and info there, but the operative section begins at "XP Repair install".
\015\012
\015\012VISTA:
http://www.windowsvista.windowsreinstall.com/#Windows_Vista_Home_Premium__Uninstalls,_Upgrades,_Installs,_Diagnostics,_Reinstalls_and_Repair_Guides.
\015\012
    \015\012
  1. Click on the applicable version at the heading of the page\015\012
  2. Click on the "single page" link next to "How to use the Windows Vista Home Basic CD or DVD to repair a Startup Problem"\015\012
  3. Follow the step-by-step instructions.
\015\012NOTE: This procedure will only modify/refresh your Windows operating system files, not your installed applications or data.
\015\012
\015\012IMPORTANT: After completion, you will need to bring your system up to date with all critical security patches/hotfixes released since the date of the disk you used in this procedure. Do this immediately after you successfully boot into Windows, but make sure you have a firewall running before you go online to perform these updates.
\015\012
TIP: After you wake up from this bad dream and all is once again serene in your computing world, take some necessary steps, so you never have to rely on this very primitive recovery method again.
\015\012
\015\0121. Get "Emergency Recovery Utility NT" (ERUNT) to accommodate recovery from any future Windows Registry caused boot-failures. It is ESSENTIAL and FREEWARE, so there's no excuse not to add it to your recovery arsenal.
\015\012Referrer: http://www.larshederer.homepage.t-online.de/erunt/
Download: http://dundats.mvps.org/Files/erunt-setup.exe
\015\012
\015\0122. Employ a (system) drive and data backup system via a third-party software. There's an endless array of choices, but I cannot recommend highly enough that it be "image" based. "Norton Ghost" and "Acronis True Image" are two of the biggest boys on that block, and either are solid choices. They may cost you a few dollars, but nothing compared to the loss related to computing downtime, time and aggravation of recovery, and most importantly your precious, irreplaceable data. A word to the wise is sufficient.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck, and please post back with a status report and/or any further questions you might have. Especially if you do download and install ERUNT … I can give you a couple GEEK tips to optimize it.
