Question Solved: Restoring Emachines d620-5133 to manufacture settings
Hi,

I have an Emachines D620-5133 model MS5277 laptop with windows vista home basic SP2 that i am trying to restore to manufactures setting due to a virus that screwed my registries beyond repair, and believe me I've tried just about everything, I even disabled the F10 boot key on the logo screen and tried the Alt-F10 thing but its not doing anything at all, I've tried calling the manufacture but they're not answering, I even took it to my own hands to try to reconfigure my registry manually, I've added the best anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-adware, and anti-hackware but none were able to help.

Please if you have any ideas on how to help me i would greatly appreciate it.


P.S. I'm very sorry if this post happens to be in the wrong forum section for i have never used techguy before.

Here is a few lines from your manual

I recommend creating your disks before starting however


Restore

The restore feature allows you to restore or recover the system from a factory
default image or from previously created CD and DVD backups. You can also

reinstall applications and drivers for your Gateway system.

1 Click on Start, All Programs, eMachines, eMachines Recovery Management.

2 Switch to the Restore page by clicking Restore.

3 You can choose to restore the system from a factory default image or
reinstall drivers and applications.

4 Follow the instructions on screen to complete the process.

Can you boot into windows in normal mode?
If so and you have some "grayed out" of recovery associated software....it may have been disabled through msconfig or some software may have been uninstalled.
Go into msconfig and make sure everything is checked that has to do with "preinstalled software"
Except java flash and the sort
Reboot
Go to services..........look for anything that has to do with "software specific to your machine"
Start the services...no need to change the start up type..just manually start them and see if you can use the recovery software........I had to do that with an acer once that had "empowering technology"

We need to be able to make the machine stable enough to work on.

Only gold shields are allowed to aid in virus removal/ but since your intent is reformatting anyway rather than keeping the install...I am going to have you use a rescue disk...The purpose is to clean the machine enough to be able to work on it

Thumb drives work great..if your machine will boot from a usb device.

After booting it....update it....if you are on a laptop..You more than likely will have to use the wired network connection,,,just as if you are on a desktop that isnt wireless.
