My laptop crashed and I want to restore to factory
1) In some cases, you can buy the recovery media from the manufacturer.
(needs your serial number and often is restricted to purchase during the initial warranty period)
2) Your computer came with a Recovery Management tool which would have allowed you to burn your own. (Too late for this to work)
3) In the Bios see if Disc to Disc Recovery (D2D Recovery) is enabled (Press <F2> during the POST to enter the BIOS.) It will be in the Main section. If it is enabled (or after enabling it - save and exit the BIOS), restart the computer and press <alt> and <F10> simultaneously when the eMachines logo is visible. You should enter the Recovery section and follow the directions. Please note this will reformat your hard drive and you will lose any data that wasn't previously backed up.
I sometimes find it hard to time these startup key strokes, try again until successful.
I hope this helps.
(The D2D recovery information is in a hidden partition (15 GB) on the hard disc, if your computer had the feature. Backing up your data and checking if the hard drive has this partition can be done with a LiveCD of either a UNIX or some other system utility programs (if you have a second RW optical disc or an external hard drive). Using a LiveCD requires hitting <F12> at the eMachines logo to enter the boot menu.)

My emahine e725 is froze onreovery magement
Looks like you will have to reinstall windows, unless you have a recovery disc.
If you have the original Windows disc you can reinstall windows.
If you want to keep all your old vids and pics, just put the disc in the drive , then restart your pc, make sure its set to boot from disc drive.
install windows on the same place it is now DONT format the drive if you want to keep stuff, if not format it. if you dont format it will put all your current files into a folder called Windows.old after you get a fress install go to C: and look for windows.old

Emachines e627 web cam problem
Could be a simply focus adjustment within the cam software that needs to be done. Or the cam is bad itself try adjusting the focus wheel as well. It may be out of focus. Usually the adjustment is on the lens turn it in or out. Try testing the cam on another computer close by see if it is working well on another computer. If not replace the cam. Try re installing the cam software and driver files. John
