    When I try and open the internet or a word document, I can do work for about 15 minutes and then my mouse and my keyboard will just freeze. I have tried to do a system restore and that doesn't work. I am a college student so I can't afford to have my laptop not work!!!

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

I buy PC packard bell easynote_TS11HR-032FR and the touchpad does not work, when i use my pc for the first time.


Check this:
Many laptops with touchpads have a switch or a keyboard combo that will disable the touchpad. Look to see if there is a little button you can push located near the touchpad. Alternately, there is normally a Fn-special function key combination you can use. You press the Fn key and also the special function key that has a little symbol on it that looks like a touchpad. That can turn the touchpad on or off.

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


Hello,
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.

Packard bell restore new Hdu


From parkard bell suppport website Quote

"Step 4 - Re-installing your software
Call the help desk and ask them to guide you through the
ExtHS process.
Please have your Recovery CDs to hand when you call
the Easy Repair line.

Once you have completed the ExtHS process you will
need to re-install Windows and the other software supplied
with your Packard Bell computer. To do this follow the
steps below:
1. Disconnect all peripheral devices (web cam, printer,
scanner, broadband modem etc.).
2. Insert the Packard Bell Master CD 1 / DVD in the top
CD / DVD drive and restart your computer.
3. The CD will load and display the following message:
Please refer to the section headed Packard Bell
Recovery Program in your user’s guide for instructions
on this utility. Press OK if you want to continue
or Cancel to return to DOS.
4. Press the letter O on your keyboard to continue.
5. You will see a menu with options. Please select option 1
“Standard System Restore”
by pressing the 1 key on
your keyboard.
6. A warning message about data loss will be displayed.
Press the letter O to continue.
7. The process will take around 40 minutes. Once this is
done you will need to restart your PC. Remove the CDs
and store them in a safe place.
8. If there was a Software Library DVD supplied with your
PC you can use this to install the extra software that was
supplied with your computer. Insert this into the drive
and follow the onscreen instructions.
9. Finally, you will need to install any additional devices
(web cam, printer, etc.) and software by following the
instructions supplied with them."
