Download the drive test for the hard drive. Put the drive in your other computer and run the test. If it test good on simple test do the long test. IF IT COMES OUT FINE, Run the Zero program and then try to install the O.S. Check your BIOS settings and make sure everything is set right. You are on the right track. You just did not know how to test the drive. If it is a Toshiba you will not find a hard drive test. You might be able to use the Maxtor or Seagate drive test. Use the windows version if you can. If you can't do any of the test, right click on the drive and check for errors.

Rate me if this helped.

SOURCE: Don't know how to reformat my emachine T5010 desktop PC

Reformatting your Windows computer is usually the absolute last resort and is often done unnecessarily. Before you go through the process of doing a reformat of your hard drive please take a few moments to read through the rest of our website. If you are reformatting to fix problems with your Windows computer it's possible that by using some of the tips on our site, or by downloading or purchasing some of the tools or products that we link to, you might be able to avoid the need to reformat your computer. Because doing a complete reformat of your computer will erase the contents of the hard drive and require you to reinstall all software, reformatting is usually a last resort. Some Computer Manufacturers Make Reformatting EasyMany name-brand PC manufacturers include a restore-disk which makes it easy to reformat your PC and return it to the state it was in on the day you purchased it. Some manufactures supply only a standard Microsoft Windows CD, and some (usually lower-end PC manufacturers) supply neither! If your PC did not come with a restore or reformatting CD, then you will need to take extra steps to format your hard drive and get Windows re-installed. Back Up Your Files Before You Reformat Your Windows PC!Because the reformat or restore process erases everything on your computer, it is critical to have a backup of any important files on your computer. You will also need your original software install disks to reinstall any software you have purchased.
Things to do before you reformat your PC hard drive

  • Write down or print out all notes and internet pages because once the format process begins, you will no longer have access to them (or anything else in the PC)
  • As already stated, BACKUP all important files and data! When you reformat your computer everything will be erased!
  • Make sure you have all the CDs and other software. All programs will have to be reinstalled after you format the hard drive. Don't forget about software that came with hardware such as printers, scanners, etc.
  • Write down the brand and information for all the hardware on your computer. Look in the Device Manager and make note of the brand and model of network adaptors, video cards, sound cards, printers, modems, and displays. After reformatting you might need this information to reinstall drivers.

If the drive is trashed, just force the drawer open. If you don't want to do that, you should be able to disassemble the drive enough to get the disk out by removing screws... Sometimes the screws are underneath stickers, or warranty stickers, etc etc.

My Lite-ON Combo SOHC-4836V DVD/CD-RW Drive will not open, is there any way to fix this? Expected Action: CD Tray opens What Happens: The sound of it trying to open, then the sound of it closing....


It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

There is a small pin hole below the tray. Straighten a paper clip and gently push it in this hole. The tray will unlock and pop out slightly, then pull the tray out and remove the DVD disc.

Emachines 180 desktop reinstalling windows xp


Your trying to reinstall Windows XP from cd on your emahcine computer and from what I understand part of the way through the installation of XP you recieve a blue screen? Am I correct?
If so then their can be a couple of things wrong here.
One your cd drive is not reading the cd correctly try cleaning the lense on your cd drive or change the drive and use a different drive. Second your Windows XP cd is bad, screatched or smudged. Try cleaning your cd or make a copy of it on a friends machine and use the new one. If you tried all of these and you are still getting the blue screen repost for more help.

Thanks

I have a Emachines t3522 W/ 4gb of ram, a 256mb ati X1300 pro but my disk drive won't open. It kills to get games in. Morse code is what it's like to press the button to get the drive to open. HELP!


Hi,
Unfold a large paper clip and look for a small pinhole under the tray(the part that opens to put your cd in). Put the paper clip into the hole and push firmly. CD/DVD tray will open.

Also you can try going to my computer then right click on your cd/dvd rom icon. Then left click on eject.
