can you be more specific as to the actual text? Also you should press F2 or whatever key is your bios hotkey and check your boot order. Make sure that the hard drive is your first boot device. it actually kind of sounds like you have a cd in the drive and it's trying to boot from it. please physically verify that there are no discs in the drive.

I want to reformat PB MS2303

Packard Bell is a computer manufacturer, now owned by Acer. Restoring your computer will erase the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows. This is beneficial if the Packard Bell is showing its age and running extremely slow or has been hit with an incurable virus infection. Before attempting to restore the system, be sure to back up any data you wish to save.

1.Insert the Windows Setup CD/DVD into the computer's optical drive. The disc will have been included with the Packard Bell computer.

2.Restart the computer with the disc inserted. A black screen will appear when the disc is detected, displaying "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." Press any key on the keyboard to launch the Windows installer. The "Install Windows" screen will appear.

3.Click "Next."

4.Select "I accept the license terms" and click "Next."

5.Click "Custom" when asked what type of installation you'd like. The other option is "Upgrade," but in order to restore your Packard Bell system to its factory settings, you must reformat the hard drive.

6.Click "Drive Options" when asked where to install Windows. Select the C: drive and click "Erase." Select the unallocated space after it has been erased, and click "Format." Format the space using the "NTFS" file system.

7.Click "Next" and Windows will begin reinstalling on the Packard Bell's hard drive. The system will reboot when finished and launch into your newly restored Packard Bell.

How can i make a cd on my packard bell laptop, model number MS2266, does it have a cd rw drive

This is a "recent" laptop, e.g., 3GB of RAM, and 500GB disk-drive.
So, it's reasonable to assume that it contains a CD/DVD reader/writer.

To write a file to a CD-recordable disk, click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on the icon for the file, and point at "Send To", and click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.

A dialogue-window will open, allowing you to add other files to a menu of files to be written.
Work from that point.

Packard bell easy note lm85 recovery management & updator software download link please


When you hit the power key also hit the F11 key keep pressing it until you get into the
recovery box

then follow on screen instructions

please back up all you files or pictures ist onto a disc or pendrive
because if you take it back to factory settings you will loose everything that you have put onto the
laptop but the bonus is that you will have a nice clean hoopefully sweet running laptop

good luck
