Trying to load packard bell ,its formated hard drive ,next screen i have c:\ what do i put to continue



The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.

Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.

After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.

Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.

One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.

The computer has to be booted from the disk.

Hard Drive lost capacity


You cannot just 'loose' most of the capacity on a hard drive unless you have some serious issue and if that was the case, I would not even recommend you using it! What I suspect, because of its size, is that you are only seeing one of the formatted (recovery) partition. In order to use the rest of the hard disk, with the proviso that you want to keep the existing small partition, you need to create and format additional partitions. This is not a trivial task, but the following is the summary on where to find the facility: Control Panel -> Admistrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management -> Your Hard disk will be displayed with all existing partitions: after which you can use the context menu to delete/create partitions, Format partitions and assign a drive letter so that you can use the formatted partitions. Hope it helps: let me know how you go!

More than 70% of all computer problems are related to cabling and connections. Ensure all cables are connected and connected firmly. IDE and floppy ribbon cables and power cables can often go loose. Ensure microprocessor, memory modules, and adapters such as video card are inserted correctly and didn't "pop-up" due to vibration.
System has no power at all. Power light does not illuminate, fan inside the power supply does not turn on, and indicator light on keyboard does not turn on. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Power cable is unplugged. Visually inspect power cable. Make sure power cable is securely plugged in.
Defective power cable. Visual inspection, try another cable. Replace cable.
Power supply failure. Power cable and wall socket are OK, but system is still dead. Contact technical support
Faulty wall outlet;circuit breaker or fuse blown. Plug device into socket know to work and test. Use different socket, repair outlet, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.



System inoperative. Keyboard lights are on, power indicator lights are lit, and hard drive is spinning. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Expansion card is partially dislodged from expansion slot on the motherboard. Turn off computer. Take cover off system unit.
Check all expansion cards to ensure they are securely seated in slots. Using even pressure on both ends of the expansion card, press down firmly on expansion card.
Defective floppy disk drive or tape drive. Turn system off.
Disconnect the cables from one of the floppy drives. Turn on the system, check to see if the keyboard operates normally. Repeat until you have located defective unit. Contact Technical Support.
Defective expansion card. Turn computer off.
Remove an expansion card. Make sure expansion card is secure in expansion socket.



System does not boot from hard disk drive, can be booted from floppy disk drive. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Connector between hard drive and system board unplugged. When attempting to run the FDISK utility described in the HARD DISK section of the manual you get a message, INVALID DRIVE SPECIFICATION. Check cable running form disk to disk controller on the board. Make sure both ends are securely plugged in; check the drive type in the Standard CMOS Setup (in your motherboard manual).
Damaged Hard Disk or Disk Controller. Format hard disk; if unable to do so, the hard disk may be defective. Contact Technical Support.
Hard Disk directory or FAT is scrambled. Run the FDISK program, format the hard drive(See HARD DRIVE section of manual). Copy your backup data back onto hard drive. Backing up the hard drive is extremely important. All Hard Disks are capable of breaking down at any time.

Reformat the Hard Drive as described in the Hard Drive section of the manual. Re-install applications and data using backup disks.



Error message reading "SECTOR NOT FOUND" or other error messages indication certain data is not allowed to be retrieved. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
A number of causes could be behind this. Use a file by file backup instead of an image backup to backup the Hard Disk. Back up any salvageable data. Then do a low level format, partition, and high level format of the hard drive( see Hard Disk section of your manual for instructions). Re-install all saved data when completed.



Disk formatted on IBM PS/2 will not operate with this system. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION

No power to monitor. All or part of the system may be inoperable. The new card may work but a mouse or COM port may not work. Change the interrupt or RAM address on the new expansion card. See the documentation that came with the new card in order to change pin settings. many expansion devices come with proprietary software that will assist you in doing this.

Start up problem


This generally indicates a hard drive failure. You can try to do an operating system repair with the recovery or operating system disc, but most likely you will need to replace the hard drive.

When you see the IBM screen you need to enter the boot menu. On this screen it tells you what to press to get to the boot menu. Place the recovery or operating system disc in the drive, and select the CD drive from the boot menu, then follow the directions. If the repair doesn't work, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format or install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. You want to do a full NTFS format, not the quick format, if the hard drive is bad, it won't format.
