Question about Computers & Internet
Because you have a packard bell, I would assume this is a much older system. You would have to put Windows 98 on it I presume unless you have enough memory to do XP. Either way you will need one of the Windows CDs to load the software... I ve seen Win98 on Ebay for $50. Once you have the software, you will need a boot disk.. You can download this off the Internet. What this boot disk does, is it loads the utilities that you need like to format the hard drive and it will also load the cd rom drivers so you can use your cd rom and install windows from the cd... Load the boot disk and once its loaded you can use the format command. At the C Prompt, type format C: It will erase the Hard Drive. Once completed, Reboot the computer with the boot disk still in. When it gets done you can install Windows. Most times it will assign the cd rom drive a letter. Usually D or E. When it comes up type E:\Setup This should start your install. Joe < Data Miner >
