Hello, I am having trouble trying to reformat my computer. I try putting in the Restore DVD that eMachines provided me with before the computer boots up, but it does not load up at all. I have also tried starting it up on safe mode and normal mode.

My Computer:
eMachines T3256
Microsoft XP Home Edition SP2
AMD Athlon 3200+ 2.2GHz
ATI Radeon 9550 / X1050 Series 256MB

Does it mention setting the boot priority to CD ROM Drive then Hard Drive, if yes and it isn't set this way

Press the power button, keep tapping the delete key (or the key specified on the first screen) until it enters set up. Look for boot order, set it to CD ROM Drive then Hard Drive, press F10 to save, type Y to confirm, press enter to reboot.

Look for press any key to load from CD
