Well Ian, it clearly shows that for the time being your laptop doesn't have any operating system. So, the first thing your must do is either purchase an operating system or you can download LINUX (a free operating system) and even its CDs can be ordered at a very low price.



One of the most easiest to use and best distros of LINUX for now is UBUNTU. You can get a UBUNTU CD quite easily for the Canonical Store. Get it from here http://shop.canonical.com/product_info.php?products_id=1027 .

Once you have that with you or any other flavor of LINUX or any other O/S simply go to BIOS of your computer, generally comes up with the following key combination:
a) DEL
b) F2
c) F10

your can change but these are the most common ones. Then find something like BOOT ORDER or BOOT SEQUENCE and then make your CD/DVD as your First Boot Device. Insert the O/S disc and restart your computer, Voila, you shall start running the setup in no time. Once the setup is finished you can simply take out the DVD/CD and enjoy your laptop. :-)

Download any Live CD and eithe burn it on a Disk , burn it as an ISO Image with any burner or if this machine has not got a disk player then attach an external Player/burner, or with Unetbotin bring the ISO on to a USB stick. You may have to change the boot sequence on the Laptop, when you turn it on then press the delete key to enter the bios then you can change to boot order , (where the system looks for a start system). The advantages of the live cd is that they are free any and you can find the system that pleases you th most and can then install it from the cd . Otherwise you must purchase an Windows system disk and install it.

SOURCE: wifi - packard bell laptop

I sometimes have the same problem and usually it's because the router somehow looses connection with the laptop. You may require a stronger router/different kind of router. Have you tried to move the location of your router first to see if that could be one of the problems ?

Hope this works for you.

If you cannot see the speaker icon in the taskbar, click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and tick place icon in the taskbar. That's if a driver has been installed for your sound device which is a creative sounblaster I think.

Packard bell tj65 screen problem


Try connecting a standard PC monitor to the laptop via the VGA port. Do you still get the same problems on the external screen? If so, there is a motherboard fault relating to the Video output. If your laptop uses the NVidia chipset, this is probably the fault as some older laptops did suffer from this.
If you dont get the fault then its probably one of these:
1) Screen issue
2) The Screen cable that allows the video data to go from the motherboard to the screen

Hope this helps

You will need a backup recovery disc to reload your operational system. Since the hard drive has been wiped clean there is no other way to do this.

Try another new dvd and it should be a dvd -r. havn't had good luck with dvd + r or dvd r/w when making recover disks.

never try to reuse a dvd or cd that has given you an error. toss it.

Pac Bell Easy Note Sc - boot problems


Hi,
I think you should remove your Memory RAM at the back of the laptop and wipe the edges with a clean white sheet.you can locate this also using your manual
Put it back and lets notice the results..
But if the problem still exists then i think you should change the memory RAM with a good one..

Please let me get back to me and let me know the results..
Thanks
