Press F8 during system startup repeatedly and see if a menu comes. If it comes then you will find a option named Safe Mode. Select it and press enter twice.
Let me know if you can start your pc in safe mode or not

Have you got a spare hard drive to hand if so get yourself a copy of xp cd and place this in pc and make sure you have the main c not connected and then install xp as normal on this hard dive then when all is installed then connect the first c drive as the slave drive you may have to move the jumpers at back of hard drive and then boot into the new installed windows don't worry about the other stuff for the motherboard once you have booted in then you may get access to the files just copy all files out to the new drive then remove drive new hard drive from pc and re-try with the old hard drive with the the recovery disc if you get the blue screen then you know that the hard drive has problems.

the only thing wrong with that is the Emachines recovery disc is catered for 1 manufacture motherboard with the devices on you may find that the recovery disc wo'nt work for yoyr pc use any copy of xp cd to install then hunt about the web for drivers for the pc and burn a copy for next time you need them I would go for an imaging software to make a backup of pc then whan you need it you just restore from this and away you go up and running agaig in notime at all.

good luck

Cannot get windows xp back on to my computer.


Assuming the computer has a Microsoft XP product code tag on it (so you can be legit & legal), see if you can borrow an XP installation CD from a friend.

Sometimes the reinstall is set up on a separate partition on the hard disk, which of course, is totally useless if the hard drive has failed in a catastrophic way.

You could also contact Packard Bell (I thought this company was history), to see if replacement disk(s) are available. Have your computer's Model & Serial handy. The disks won't be free, but likely much less than a Walmart etc, supplied edition.

Cant get vista off my pakardbell i media x2414 i would like to put xp on it


Dear Sir.

In order to get xp on your computer.

You need to install windows xp by formating your computer by using the windows xp operating system cd.

If your computer comes vista installed on that you need to get xp cd from your packerd bell support.

I want to remove pre installed software on my Packard bell computer using XP home edition

Try this to see if that will fix your problem. Alot of new computers come with crapware installed in order to boost their profit margin. This will help you identify and eliminate it.
