|I apologize, however asking if you tried is an insult regardless |
of skill set. Trying something before reporting that it doesn't
work is just common sense.
That said, so you know what my abilities are, I am CompTIA
A+ certified. I just don't know much about eMachines laptops
since I deal mostly with HPs and Toshibas and the way you
recover them is different.
Since this is a laptop, I am not using an external keyboard.
As for your mention of the recovery partition, it is there and is
normally accessed through the eMachines Recovery Manager
but as mentioned that program is not functioning.
I have also Googled the matter before deciding to post here for
assistance and the only mention I found was for the afore
mentioned program. All other Google advice on how to get the
program functional didn't resolve the issue.
However, seeing as this laptop is in rather rough condition and
my girlfriend is giving it to her ungrateful younger brother, I
think I'll just back up all the drivers, reformat it, and install
Windows Vista from my retail copy using the laptop's product
Again, I apologize for my rude behaviour. It was not intended
and I shall restrain myself better in the future. I thank you all
who posted for your assistance.
