I have a packard bell imedia mc1539 and have done a complete recovery on the system. Now the system will not boot. It keeps saying boot from CD and if I go to the BIOS and change the order it then will only give me a black screen with a flashing cursor. Help !

You'l have to make sure that the HDD is detected as the pc posts. Or, you can verify by going into the BIOS and see if the HDD is detected. Also try and check if the HDD is receiving power. When a computer is first started, the HDD will make this certain noise and initiates when powered. That's just know that the HDD powered up and initiated. So then, if the HDD is receiving power but is not detected in the BIOS, it might be the IDE cable. But in most cases, it's probably a connection issue of either the data cable, or the molex connector. Check it and verify that the HDD is detected. Good Luck.

I have a Packard Bell Imedia desktop not sure of the model. It was working fine until recently, I switched on my pc and after the boot screen "NTLDR is missing Alt Ctrl Del" message appeared....


Remove the hard disk and attach it to an USB hard drive adapter and then connect it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will detect the hard drive as an external storage device, then you can open the various folders and files to copy your files to this computer or burn your data to a CD/DVD disc or USB flash drive.
Return you hard disk back to your Packard Bell so you can reinstall Windows.

My pc keeps on restarting after loading the xp screen


Disconnect any new devices you may have recently added and boot the PC.

As its booting press the F8 key several times, this should bring up several boot options. Choose "Safe Mode" .

This will bring up windows in a stripped down form, once complete click on start - all programmes - accessories - system tools - system restore (This is for XP, vista and win7 are a little different)

Restore to a date prior to when all the problems started.

Packard bell imedia S1710 memory problem


No it is not normal for Win7... it should be the opposite... Win7 Memory Management is better than any other systems. I would do maintenance... clean out temp files and clean and defrag the registry. Glary Utilities works great for that or CCleaner. Then Defrag. Maybe just a false message caused by a bad temp file. If it continues I would have issues with the Hardware and seek a warranty replacement. Side note: turn off or uninstall products on the system you won't use.

Packard bell pentium3 windows me


F1 is probably the key to enter the Bios setup utility. Press and hold the F1 key immediately after you start the machine. Go to the boot priority section, and set your CD-Rom as first boot device. Press f10 to save the settings and reboot with your recovery disk installed

I need to reinstall windows on packard bell imedia 5106


 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 >
