BUT I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP I CAN RECIEVE. THROUGH YOUR EXPERTISE. THE MACHINE BELONGS TO MY SON , AND HE SEEMS TO HAVE MISPLACED OR LOST THE RECOVERY DISCS THAT CAME WITH IT,

YOURS SINCERELY

Mr burrows

Most Emachines have a hidden partition that has a recovery console holding all the drivers,though may need updating.

Try tapping F11 possibly f10 on startup,here you should have 3 options.

1) restore (destructive to factory settings)
2) repair windows
3) reinstall windows with data loss

maybe not exact how ive posted but similar.

As woodchip says,please turn off caps lock,this is commonly known as shouting.

Hi Woody,hope your well :-))

you need ot use a ps/2 keyboard to tap f11

my usb ports are not working. and my keyboard is not recognised through p/s2 , so i cannot see any way of accessing f11 or f10, or am i not thinking straight.
