    When booting through the master cd set I can't pass the step that requires system s/n because I do not know what it is, where do I find it.

Packard Bell Master CD


If I where looking for this, I'd hit up yellowpages.com and look for all computer shops, antique malls, pawnshops and flea markets in the area and start making calls to see if they have antiquated technology laying around.

I, personally, love tinkering around with these old machines. It's been a hobby since they where new! lol And I'm a pawn broker, so I'd be one shop that may have what you need. (I don't, unfortunately, I looked.) And you'd be shocked what all you can find for a quarter at a flea market or an antique mall.

If you borrow a oem cd off some one with the same operating system as you then you can use your original product key which you can find on the tower off your computer.

Recovery help needed for packard bell laptop


So you are using two different XP discs with two different activation codes? That may cause problems. Anyway you are probably already formated with NTFS. So it sounds like you are trying to re-install XP? Go in set-up and choose the CD/DVD ROM drive as the first boot device then start up with the XP disc in the drive. Use the disc for the original XP that was on the computer. This may get you to a point where you can re-install.

Dear Sir ;
Start the computer by putting the cd (RESTORE) in the cd rom.
And follow the instructions. Else format the system (you will loose the data in both the cases.)

Start computer failure


well..what they are most likely asking for is the original set of installation disks, that should have come with the computer when you got it. Have them around somewhere?

I wish to restore my packard bell easynote back to its factory settings but when i bought it it did not have a dics. can i do this any other way? regards martin


Getting any information from Packard Bell is like pulling teeth. I recommend looking on ebay for the recovery discs. Or borrow someone's XP CD and insert the key on the bottom of your computer. If you can't get a CD you can call microsoft and purchase one for $27.

I know this is not what you want to hear. But if you have patience you can write to Packard Bell.
