    Hi



    I am trying to reformat the laptop...... the recovery partition that should be on the machine is not there or corrupt and cannot be used... i have reinstalled xp from another CD using the laptops license number but it now wont recognise any drivers,so i think reformatting will be my best option.



    cheers

    i am only using one activation code... the one that is printed on the underside of the laptop... its original activation code...but am using the xp cd from another machine as there was never a cd with the laptop... there didnt appear to be any isues and the cide was acccepted when i put it in.... i can see this may still cause sme conflicts.....



    xp is on 'E' drive but i believe that the drivers for wifi etc were on the 'c' drive and have been deleted.....yep the poor laptop is in a bad way at the min.... but it will not beat me....



    i need a full set of drivers etc for the machine....packard bell model pb53m00001

    I'm not sure I understand the question. Are you trying to recover the data off the hard drive or reformat it?

So you are using two different XP discs with two different activation codes? That may cause problems. Anyway you are probably already formated with NTFS. So it sounds like you are trying to re-install XP? Go in set-up and choose the CD/DVD ROM drive as the first boot device then start up with the XP disc in the drive. Use the disc for the original XP that was on the computer. This may get you to a point where you can re-install.

    my packard bell laptop crashed on transferring data from my mobile. after that i was unable to boot up in normal windows mode. I managed to access the safe mode however since i initiated systems recovery I can no longer access safe mode or anything else for that matter. The screen is blank and that's it no other operations can be accessed.

Hi i have a packardbell easy note mx recently my windows xp is crashed so i had installed piracy windows xp its working normally ,i just need to know that on the back of my laptop their is a serial number...


Yes, as long as it's same XP as you had before (either Home, Professional or Media Centre Edition). Microsoft activation recognises serial number and also version of OS you are activating, so as long as these both match, no problem. As far as driver disc goes, contact store you bought it from, they just may have needed a copy as one stage, or be able to contact somebody who owns the same model to see if they would be prepared to burn a copy for you. Hope this helps

Laptop need driver for motherboard


Scknasccar88 has a good point, so here's a link to Packard Bell's support site: http://www.packardbell.com/support.htm
You don't need the CD when you can download the latest drivers from the manufacturer, and since you want a MotherBoard driver (strange) you can find it's manufacturer at the support site linked above. If it's that new and Packard Bell won't provide a CD, you may also want to look for a restore partition on your harddrive (all you need may very well be there).
Good Luck.
