Question about Packard Bell iMedia 6826 (P481000502) PC Desktop

Packard bell imedia 5068

I have wiped my HDD and loaded ubuntu 9.04 which will boot up from cold.(computer unplugged).  Go for a restart...no way.  xubuntu does the same thing but will not install to the HDD.  I believe the problem is with the BIOS on these machines as I have had no problems with 2 other self assembled machines.  As I understand it there is an embedded "tatoo" on these machines placed jointly with PB and MS into the BIOS.  There is an update from the PB site which looks as it could resolve the problem, but HOW?  Any ideas guys?  Nick.

Ubuntu requires high graphic memory on your computer. It could install on some components but it doesn't work on whole installation process. If you are having a desktop machine, add graphic/video card to the motherboard so that Ubuntu will finally be installed in your computer.


Thanks

Hdd not on boot list


Have you tried a cold start, unplug, remove battery, hold down on/off button for 10 seconds, replace battery, plug in try to start normally. If that fails open your laptop, remember to remove battery, and Re-Seat, remove and replace the HDD. If that fails take the HHD out and have it checked by a qualified Tech. You can get devices to connect your HHD to another computer via USB, mine is a ULTRA USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA Cable Adapter. Then you can verify if in is dead.

I have beem given a packard bell laptop, it has been wiped totally clean, how can I fix this ??


Download any Live CD and eithe burn it on a Disk , burn it as an ISO Image with any burner or if this machine has not got a disk player then attach an external Player/burner, or with Unetbotin bring the ISO on to a USB stick. You may have to change the boot sequence on the Laptop, when you turn it on then press the delete key to enter the bios then you can change to boot order , (where the system looks for a start system). The advantages of the live cd is that they are free any and you can find the system that pleases you th most and can then install it from the cd . Otherwise you must purchase an Windows system disk and install it.

Imedia system32 error


okay this is a confusing post/question. you can always start a machine from bio regardless of what operating system you're running. if you're attempting to boot from the disc, tap f12 @ boot until you get a one time boot menu and choose the dvd/cd drive. that should load the setup file. the windows disc does not load setup onto the hard drive. if you're running xp when you have the option hit 'r' to repair the computer, when you get into command prompt type sfc /scannow. this will search and fix all system files. you can also try chkdsk c: /r this will fix any errors in the file structure. good luck

Free driver driver down loads for Imedia 5070


Win 7 supports this through Media Player, I believe. Otherwise, you'll have to go buy one. If the computer came with the DVD burner, you should have also received the software.

After installing another HDD from another Packard Bell computer, the computer would not boot. This computer I recieved from a mate and I dont believe windows was removed, as I have tryed and failed...


if it is a sata Hdd you have to reinstall it ..cause the sata driver on the os ..is from the other computer ..or go to bios ..and in the drives feature..look for a function called AHCI and disable it ...
after that will boot with the windows installed..but you will have to reinstall the windows anyway ..and if it is a raid sata you need to insert a diskette with the sata driver during ..or disable the ahci function ..for to let it see the HDD ..if not all it will say is that the hdd was not found..or if you try to boot with this windows on it .will say that the media is missing ..
beter to set the defaults in the bios ..and after that look for that funstion to be disabled..or disable the raid sata ..and enable teh sata Ide..instead..it is the same thing ..and will pick up the sata hdd with no sweat ..

HI THERE MY PACKARD BELL 2215 IMEDIA WILL NOT BOOT UP. iT WAS WORKING PERFECTLY THEN IT CRASHED NOW IT STARTS, FANS SOUND, BUT THEN IT SWITCHES OFF, ANYONE HELP? X


Sounds like an overheating problem. Clean the dust out of it, make sure it can get air on all sides, make sure the fans are turning. If that doesn't work, unplug the computer, hit the power button 20 times, wait 1/2 hour and boot it up.

Display problem


You don't have a display problem, you have a hard drive problem.
It is probably a file system corruption.
Insert the Windows XP install disk into your CD drive and boot to it. At the first setup screen, press R to repair windows from the recovery console. Once the recovery console loads, type
chkdsk /r and then press Enter. Once this finishes, remove the CD and reboot. With any luck, you will be able to boot successfully, if not, come back and give details about what happens.
