Hey guys,
I'm new to this and I have an annoying problem
Just wondering if anyone could maybe help?

Ok, so, I got given an emac 2002 the other day, its been used at my local college for the last seven years and so it has all these student restrictions on it and so I want to hard restore to it's factory settings.

I have the osx discs and i've tried running them by holdig "C" on power up but it doesn't respond.

Any tips/ideas?
I just want it to go back to factory settings.

It would be awesome if you could keep the language basic because I'm not very good with computer talk!

May be good to throw a fresh HDD in there and then stick a fresh copy of OS X on there.

Sorry I can't be of much more help.

Sorry Blobzilla, you've probably found a solution to your eMac issue by now, but if not, you need to check that the OS X disks are specific to that eMac. For example, if the OS disks were for a different model of Mac, even though the OS is the same, they won't work. In which case you need to purchase retail OS disks (black color).
