My eMachines computer is running on widows XP but in the past while its started to mess up a lot, so i've decided to restore it to factory settings.

But, this is where the problem lies, once the 1st disc [eMachines Restore CD Ver.1.1, 820] is in and ive restarted it goes into the "Warning, this will delete all files on C:" once ive answered yes to all of these the "Symtec Ghost" usually would start on times ive done this before; but now i just get "Error, Drive R is unreadable"

So i can't restore to factory settings, and i really need to! Help!!

I have a bad feeling, do you still get back into your system, if not you can probably repair the instalation with an XP cd, andif so and if no one has a better idea, you might first try driver magician to gather all your drivers because if the drive where your ghost has been lost or something, it is always good to be able to just save/reformat/reinstal/load but for that you have to have the drivers gathered beforehard and have a copy of the same XP(pro or home), the rest since you have used your recovery disk before is simple enough. btw I am glad you are doing save/reformat/reinstal/load shows a spirit of self reliance.
