put your backup disc in then you need to set the cd/dvd drive as the first boot device either by going into the bios or pressing an f key for a boot menu might be f12 but different makers use different ones

if your backup disc is bootable then it will let you run it

there may also be a hidden recovery partition--but i dont know which key or keys emachines use to access it if there is one

edited--try f11 for the recovery partition
