    If there are a number of discs (say 3) perhaps you’re inserting the incorrect disc – just a thought as I don’t know how many restore discs eMachines distributes. As the discs came from eMachines as opposed to Microsoft, I’d suggest getting in touch with eMachines support here:

    Be sure to have your information (serial number, etc.) handy.

    MS do not supply "Restore Discs"
    Nor should they ever be used for that

    Obviously the presently supplied Restore discs are either not correct for your system, or the hardware has changed in such a way that the restore discs do not work (I suspect not correct Restore discs as Disc #1 worked)

    Yes contact eMachines support

    Also RonS WIN TEAM, I remind you not to quote the previous messge in full (I have already stated this to you)

    Thanks, Kimsland, for the "friendly reminder." Just trying to help out here and got a bit quick with the "submit" button.

    Did you even read above :confused:

    Anyway, yes thanks for your help here, it is usually quite good :grinthumb
