Re: keyboard lock

Hi, because it is a Packard Bell your problem doesn't sound odd. I owned one at one point in time. They have since gone out of business. A keyboard that freezes is related to circuit malfunction. You have two options: open the laptop and clean out all the dust from everywhere especially under the keyboard. If that doesn't work reseat the processor. I will walk you through these solutions if needed. Just open a live chat with me. Good luck

How do you unlock the keyboard

Is it that the keyboard is locked so no keys work, or is the touchpad locked so that the mouse pointer does not move?

I've seen more and more people locking the mouse pointer. If that's the case there might be a button to push that is at the top of the touchpad in the middle that toggles it on and off. Also on some brands, you will have to hit either the FN or ALT key and hold it down while you hit the F1 thru F12 key that controls the touchpad. Usually the correct key to press will have the icon of a finger in a square box representing the touch pad.

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.

Problem with touchpad. when i try to type i get the uppercase numbers instead of the letters.

I believe you mean keyboad, because the touchpad is just the equivalent of a mouse.
Look for a key called CAPS LOCK. It may be pressed locking your keyboard to enter only caps. Usually this key has a LED that lights when key is in LOCK position.

Question: What are uppercase numbers?

Hope it helps.

Packardbell notebook can't switch turn on webcam

Look at the keys on your keypad. Do you see one that may have a webcam symbol on it? If so try holding down on the Fn key, and pressing down on that key at the same time.

If this information does not help, then when Windows is loaded, and running, press the Start key, hover your mouse cursor on All Programs, go to the right, hover on >Packard Bell>drop down to >Security and Support>and then Packard Bell InfoCentre.

Click on Packard Bell InfoCentre. On this screen look at the icons across the top. Click on the icon all the way to the right. -> Guides
It has an icon of a book in it.
Look for Webcam.

Soon as you press any key it locks up.

This sounds more like a corrupt driver than a hardware problem-
Go to the Control Panel, open the System folder, then Hardware, then Device Manager. Find and open the keyboard item, highlight the keyboard shown and delete it.
Reboot your system and force Windows to find it again and install the driver.
If this doesn't work, follow the same procedure except delete the mouse listing.
Reboot and Win should find it again and also reinstall the driver.
