Hi great,

All is not lost, when you try to boot up, you may see a "Press F? to enter setup" it goes by quick so you have to watch. Once in DOS environment you can change your boot options, set passwords, if your dual booting you can set the default os , anyway, whatever you change be sure to save and exit. To get yours up, choose safe mode/recovery mode. If os comes up go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore> choose a date before issue arose>click next/continue, wait for system to recover> reboot and enter DOS environment again and now set boot options to normal save and exit. I hope this helps.

Invalid configuration information


Start your computer and after the BIOS screen disappers , begin rapidly pressing PF8 until the Windows Boot Options appear. You should see "Safe Mode", "Boot from last valid configuration", and "Normal Mode", and maybe a few others. Select "Last Valid Configuration." Computer should sucessfully boot.

Trying to load packard bell ,its formated hard drive ,next screen i have c:\ what do i put to continue



The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.

Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.

After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.

Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.

One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.

The computer has to be booted from the disk.

Unit failed to boot and observe the followng; - No start-up display - No CMOS boot-up display - Hard disk clicking sound and OS won't start


Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power supply.
Remove the battery.
Remove the disk-drive.
Reconnect the AC power supply.
Turn the computer on.
Put any "data" disk into the CD-drive.
Does it display the CMOS boot-up display?
Can you hear the PC try to spin that "data" CD, i.e., trying to "boot" from it?
If it works "better" without the disk-drive attached, the disk-drive is the problem.

How do I restore to the factory settings. f9 is not working and I disabled the quick boot


the only way i know to do that is to format the hard drive. formatting the hard drive erases everything from the computer and reinstalls the operating system. to do this you need the disk for the operating system. put the disk into the cd/dvd ROM and then restart your computer. when the computer is starting up there will be commands that you can press at the bottom of the screen. press the button for booting from disk. this will take you through a bunch of things ask you if you want to do this. say yes to all of these and it will format your hard drive.

Comp wont start up


The hard disk may have died. Check the BIOS and check the hard disk setting, if it appears OK then boot up with a DOS floppy startup boot disk, and select boot up without CD-ROM support, then type fdisk, answer Y to large disk support, select 4 to Display partition information.
If you see all your disk partition the most likely your hard disk is OK.
Most likely you operating system is damaged/corrupted and you will need to reinstall your operating system and drivers for all your devices.
