I have an old packard bell pc and it needs to be rebooted but i haven't got the original floppy reboot disc how can i do it without the disc ?


By rebooted, I assume you mean reinstalled? You cannot reinstall a PC this old without the operating system disk. New PC's have a utility partition that contains the reinstall package. You will have to purchase that OS from ebay or some other site.

I have a Compaq Evo D51C and it does not boot at start-up...screen goes to black with sideways white dash at upper left corner...F-8 does not work...software was factory installed so I do nto ahve any CD's...


I would first try recovering the computer by pressing f10 as the computer is booting. If the compaq didn't come installed with a recovery partition, or like you said, no recovery discs, then you will either need to find someone who has a windows XP disc, buy an XP disc, or take the comp to the computer shop so they can run the windows xp recovery console.
If you want a really accurate, thorough explanation of why this problem happened in this first place, read this microsoft article here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314503/en-us
Good luck. Hopefully you can find someone that already has an xp disc.

How do i reboot ,my laptop offline. internet explorer won't let me online i have viruses


Before you worry about restoring your computer, see if you can clean up the trouble. From another computer, download MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware (the free version) and put it on a flash drive. Install it in your computer and run a full scan. This is a very effective program, updated continuously as new bad software comes along, and is the first thing I try when someone calls me for help.

If MBAM doesn't fix it, you can try another program called ComboFix. You can get it here. (A tutorial and download link is here at BleepingComputer.com, a good site for getting information and help on computer troubles.)

If you need to restore your computer (you said "reboot", but I assume you mean "restore", which puts the original factory software image back on), you'll need the manufacturer's recovery disc or discs. Older computers usually came with a set, but most newer computers no longer have the discs included. Since CD or DVD writers are standard equipment, the manufacturer provides a utility program that lets you make your own recovery discs after you set up the computer. This is a step many people ignore, however. If you don't have a recovery set, you might be able to purchase one from the manufacturer, or you can install a fresh copy of Windows yourself.

Try MBAM first, then ComboFix if necessary. Chances are very good that this will get your computer going again. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

How do i check disc on compaq computer


To check disc while still in windows, click on computer, right click on the "C" drive, Scroll down to properties, click on the "Tools" tab, click on the check disc button, make sure to check the box to automatically fix errors. Since the disc is in use, the program may ask you to force a dismount of the drive, hit ok and continue the scan. It may also ask you to schedule a disc scan when the system reboots, choose yes and reboot. The system will scan the disc and repair any issues.

Try to reinstall it. Go into Control Panel>System>Hardware and find the drive and uninstall the driver then reboot the computer. If that doesn't work it may need cleaning

After installing restore disk computer continuasly reboots after start up


there maybe a hardware fault, is this your own restore disc specific to your pc? have you changed any hardware in the pc before using the restore disc, if so the software will not recognise the serial numbers of the new hardware and cause a looping reboot.
