I have a backup Emachine PC - needed to restore system - ran emachine restore CD's - process works great, it goes through formating my drive then installing windows, system reboots then asks for date, time, etc... - When it asks for computer name and computer description, no matter what I type in, when I hit next it freezes - the screen fades slightly and an hour glass (mouse icon) comes up - I have let it sit for 2 hrs and it just sits there. The hard drive light blinks on and off the hole time. When I shut it down and try to reboot, it starts the windows setup process all over again (time,date,name). there is also a skip button on this step, when i hit skip it does the same thing.
I have read articles on the net saying that people have had this problem and switched hard drives but came up with same problem. therefore, i did not try that. But I am willing to try anything at this point, please help.
By the way, I have disconnected everything but the necessities from the back of the PC.
