I want to re-install my PC's RESTORE CDs for a fresh start on my 'eMachine' 8210.

The PC has been giving me various niggly problems which I cannot sort out, so I want to start afresh.

When I insert the 1st CD in the CD/DVD drive I don't know what programme I need to click on to start the restore programme.

The CD is not giving me any clues!

Does anyone know what I need to look for please.

You may need to boot with the first of the CDs.

You are correct,insert cd 1,reboot pc and off you go.You will lose everything on the pc so back up waht you want to keep.

Couldn't get the PC to boot using CDs. Had to use F8, change drive and find the appropriate exe file.

Did a full backup after buying an external hard drive with Nero backitup.

Back up and running now - turned out okay although I've spent hours reloading all my programmes and hardware etc.
