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.

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.

Hi My son decided to completely clear his Packard bell M1610 and i don't hav the recovery discs.Is ther anything i can do?(Apart from throttle my son)


When you mean he decided to clear his computer out. You probably mean he either deleted files,folders and programmes off his computer.

You have 2 options

1. Contact the computer shop you bought the PC from or the manufacturer Pacard Bell giving them the machine number in both cases and explain to them that you do not have the Recovery CD and can they post one out to me

or

2. Purchase a copy of an Operating System (either Windows Vista or Windows XP) and a copy of Office 2003 (XP) 2007 (Vista) and install a fresh copy on your machine.
