Question about Packard Bell Computers & Internet

3 Answers

Computer wont boot, installed hardware for my mobile phone it seemed to work but the next day i got a message saying computer shutting down due to hardware not installed properly. whenever i switched the computer on i get the packard bell screen saying press esc to switch screen, i have options to boot or go into bios however it will only keep trying to boot and it fails. i do not have any boot cd's, if possible is there a way to restore the computer to factory settings? or a way to get past this screen as when i press a button it keeps scanning bios, i cannot select the options. this has happened before when i install my internet companys cd and they told me it was a virus however in the end it turned out it was my new digital camera but i cant remember how i managed to fix it.

Try restoring it to an earlier setting when you know it was working.

Turn on your computer and as it is starting continuously press F8 until you here a beep this will/should start your computer in safe mode. Everything will look big on your screen, ignore that for now. Go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that your computer was working with no problems. Once it has completed the restore it will restart your computer. If asked what mode you want to boot in press 'start windows normally'.
Hopefully this will resolve your problem.
I hope this helps

My computer wont boot after i shutdown.


it sounds like blue screen of death. It must be going back to last known configuration when trying to boot up. Check your event viewer for errors. You may have a software installed that is for another operating system or a 32 bit drivers on a 64 bit computer etc. If you can remember the last software you installed uninstall it and see if it settles down. Incompatible ram or other like IRQ errors can cause this (if IRQ then move a card to another slot and boot up).

Hi promano67

When you "start" the computer, and the {"Screen"} displays a "Error Message."[CMOS] "error checksum!"

Settings: "Default" loaded.A "checksum error" shows that:

The ("Boot-up Settings "have been changed?"), ie. "Booting OS."

*Boot File 'missing'.

"This can 'occur' if the computer was "shut-down unexpectedly."

Force Shut-down : Power lost; due to 'low battery...'

A ("Power Surge") can cause this 'problem' also.

"What 'happens is that the [CMOS] settings are lost!".
"To fix the problem!"

Do the following:

  • "Restart / Boot the computer.

  • Next, verify if the 'error message' displays?

  • If you are still getting the message?

  • "You will have to "Remove the CMOS battery form the computer!"

  • Shut-down the computer.

  • "Unplug the computer from the {Wall Out-let}.

  • Remove the Lithium battery from the "Notebook."

  • There is a compartment (underneath) the "Notebook that 'store' the CMOS battery."

  • "You will need a {very small Phillips screwdriver}._953.jpg *Remove the CMOS battery for: [30 minutes].

  • !Important: If you have to do it again?

  • Remove the CMOS battery for a {'longer amount of time'}.

  • Replace the "CMOS battery."

  • Next, "Only plug the Power Adapter into the computer.

  • "Do not - replace the "Lithium battery!"

  • Once you have completed these 'task'.

  • "Restart the computer."

  • "Press the [F2] key, to 'enter' the CMOS / BIOS Setup!" _951.jpg

  • Next, 'reset' (all) "Values to the Default Settings."

  • "Press the [F10] key to 'Save' the changes!"

!Important: "Take a 'moment to rate the help', so I can get 'credit' for the work.

Thank you!" - paul7of9

reboot system, then right after it finishs with the cmos screen pres f8, you may have to press it several times real fast in order for the system to catch it. That will give you a boot options list. Select last known configuration that worked, and press enter.
See if that fixes your boot up problem. If so, then run system restore, and do a restore back to before your computer crashed out on you. If not, then reboot system, and do the f8 thing again. This time, select safe mode with network. then if it boots up, mcheck and make sure you have internet. If you do, go to: http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm

Select cleanup scan, and follow directions for program. You may have to allow activex from the Microsoft website for it to work, but it will clean out all the registry errors, as this is what is causing your fault.

Same BS wifi problem as everyone else


Have you tried restoring the computer back a couple of days to see if that clears up the hardware hiccup? You can also go to device manager and uninstall the device and delete the drivers. Turn the laptop off, take the wireless card out. Start the laptop back up and boot it fully....After a few, shut down again. Install the wireless card and restart the laptop. When asked to install the drivers for new device found, say ok, make sure you are online with an ethernet line so windows can go online and load the newest drivers unless you have them on your C drive already.

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000. I was recently


Remove the drive by turning the computer upside down and take the screw out between the battery and the memory cover (next to a padlock symbol). Insert the screw driver into the little notch in the plate next to where the screw was and slide it towards the drive. The drive should now pop out. Boot the computer. Shut the computer down and reinsert the drive and reboot.

Toshiba Satellite shuts down and won't boot up again.


Have you installed any new hardware or loaded any new software lately? If not you might have some corrupt files. Reboot the laptop in safe mode. Just hit F8 a few times. It should give you a menu. Arrow to safe mode and hit enter. After it finishes booting to safe mode, do a system restore. Click Start>click Start>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Choose a date before a couple of days before you noticed anything happening. Restore will take a few minutes. When it's restored and booted, I want you to do one more thing. Click on start>run>type in cmd and hit ok. This will take you to your command prompt. Type chkdsk /f It will tell you it can't run it right now do wan't to run it the next time you start up? say yes. Close the window. Restart the computer and the check disk program will run and fix your errors.
If this has fixed your problem please rate it as fixed. If nit, just add a comment add I'll be happy to help you out more. Thanks.
