1. Did you set the BIOS to boot from the CD?
2. What's on the hard disk at the moment?
3. Does it boot without CD?
4. Why are you going back?
I have an emachine 740 (about 8 years old?)running XP home and am trying to take it back to its out of the box state. I've tried re-booting with the restore cds it came with but nothing happens. It powers up but with a blank screen... Is there something else I can try or some other software I can use?
