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.
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.
You need to try to adjust it with the original remote in the TECH mode---you can save the adjustments there--
With the set on a video input with nothing connected: hit the following buttons: 0 6 2 5 9 7 STATUS
The menu should appear with choices---green(do not adjust green) red to green, blue to green etc.
On that initial menu will be a item that says store or save. Depending on the remote you have once you select red to green (cursor on remote) a grid of lines should come up---on screen will be instruction--menu to adjust and or status to navigate.
When you have the red--to green adjusted hit the status button until it takes you back to the menu where Store or save is listed and right cursor on it. This will store the adjustments.
Go back by selecting blue to green and adjust that also and when done go back and save it.
Turn the set off to exit the service mode and see what you have---IF THE SET DOES NOT RETAIN these adjustments made in the Tech menu something is wrong with its DCU--digital convergence unit---that stores the adjustments.

I can only assume that from the grinding sound that your Hard drive is about to completely die. One option would be to open the case and install it into your computer as an internal drive, however that may or may not work as different types of interfaces are not supported on all motherboards. If you are not familiar with PC repair, I would advise you to avoid this route and seek help from a person who does. Some companies can recover data from dead drives, drawback is that they can charge upwards of $1000 per GB of data recovered. Either way that drive needs to be replaced.

It includes the following: Beeping noise and flashing LED Situation
When I turn on the Store & Save, it makes a beeping noise and the LED flashes continuously.
These symptoms indicate that the AC adapter is not providing enough power.
The AC adapter will need to be replaced.
I hope this helps, Bob
