    When you said the recovery disk did not work i would assume you used the disk that came with the PC and hit repair or format. You will need to either get an external wiping program such as DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke) or you will need to put the harddrive of the emachines in a different PC and format it with a different computer.
