Laptop wont start up

I have a packard bell easynote laptop with vista and a couple of weeks ago it blue screened saying something about a page fault in non paged area, i turned it off and on again and it comes on and goes to the windows loading screen and loads for a while then turns off. It does the same if i try starting with windows repair or start to last good configuration. I can access my bios. It also wont load in safe mode either!

I have lots of important data on there which i dont want to lose and i dont have a recovery disc either.

At this point your Operating System is Corrupt and has to be reinstalled

The only fix is to install your factory restore disk to Restore the System unless the notebook comes with a full system restore; you can call the company to find out, some have a small division of the Hard Drive where with a New O.S. Installation sometimes including all the Programs the Notebook came with when new.

Ofcourse this procedure will erase all your data if it is still there.. If you are experienced with hardware or daring and the Hard Drive is accessable it can be removed BEFORE you do the reinstall and added to a "healthy" Computer via the USB port though an external Connection.

It pays to buy a Kit that provides connections for this. Tigar Direct sells it among others: "5 in 1 " USB cable which connects SATA and IDE drives drives to any USB port in another Computer. If you Hard Drive is SATA it will need an external Power Supply which is provide, if IDE it runs off the Healthy Computer's USB port.

FInd out where the Hard Drive is on the Notebook. Usually its easily reached on the bottom of the COmputer in one of the screwed in panels. If you dont know where it is remove the covers one by one. The Hard Drive is a small rectangular module 2.5 " x 3.5" x .5 ".

Carefully remove the HD (hold by sides not in the middle) and disconnect the plugs. Determine if IDE OR SATA . Its most likely SATA so you will need the included Power supply. Follow the instructions to connect it and plug in the USB plug to the "healthy" computer. IDE drives have a series of connectors and easily distingused from SATA which is more common.

Simply connct the USB plug to any free USB port in your other COmputer... Go to MY COMPUTER and look for your drive. IT may appear as a "D" or "E". Left click on the drive Icon and you should see all your files. Starting with MY DOCUMENTS or where ever you save most of your data open the Folders one by one on the drive and either cut and past or drag your folders and files to the DESKTOP of the Healthy Computer by dragging it from this drive directly to the desktop of the helper computer by putting the cursor right over the folder or file and dragging it out of the My Documents Box and directly on to the Desktop and one area. You may want to create a TEMP file in the Helper Computer and drag all your saved folders and files there.

When you finished saving all your old data shut down the Helper COmputer and remove the Use Connection, disconnect the drive back in your Notebook, (carefully the same way it came out) THEN PUT IN THE FACTORY INSTALLATION DISK and reboot the computer and it should book to that disk. Follow Instructions to Reformat your drive and restore it to FACTORY (new) condtion. If you do not have this Disk then Call the Computer Manufacturer and ask that they sent it to you or how to access the Notebook's own recovery system IF it has one.

After its finished and working again (probably a LOT better, like new actually), go back to the Helper Computer and copy your data BACK to your Notebook by using any method you know: Thumb Drive, External HD or if the two computers are Networked than you can do it via the network but you first have to Re-establish the Notebooks Network Connection. You can just use a Small USB Thumb drive and copy all your saved folders to that and then plug it into your notebook USB port and Look for it in My COmputer and copy upload all your folders and files back to the notebook....

NOTE: If you find your Notebook HD initially or you have difficulty copying your old files to the Helper computer or the Drive makes a CLicking sound etc etc and you cant copy anything from it than IT HAS TO BE REPLACED WITH A NEW DRIVE. Unfortunatly you will lose all your old Data unless you want to risk sending the broken drive to one of these on line sites that claim they can save ANY lost data, some can but they charge accrodingly: $2,500 and up hehe.

Most often the drive is still good but has a corrrupted O.S. and if you do the ubove procedure, you save yourself a few hundred $$ for this annoying repair. The Drive adapter kit costs about $15 and it can be fun and a good skill learned as this is THE major procedure for the vast majority of computer Repairs.

Good Luck

Hit me with an Email if you run into trouble. Cheers :)

Your operating system is basically corrupted,some files were missing on the operating system,if you really wanted to recover your files,remove the hard drive on your laptop then you must use a hard drive enclosure to make it as external drive then you can save and copy your files to another computer.
there are several ways to retrieve your files,this is just only one of the ways.

Best thing to do, take the hard drive out of the laptop and hook it up to a computer that has the SATA connections in it.

Make sure you have a flash drive and then you can transfer any files you want from the hard drive to the flash drive.

Then go ahead after your done with that, hook the hard drive back into the laptop and then you can install the operating system and then go to the packard bell website for the drivers.

Packard bell easy note tj65 will not power up


the short cable running from the power button to the main board has probably snapped where it passes over the RH hinge. remove the screen surround to gain access to the power on switch area and check. it would seem to be a common fault with the packard bell

Non working keys on laptop


You should just need to replace the keyboard.

However finding a keyboard for a packard bell in the US can be hard. That brand hasnt been sold here in years.

If you are in europe it should be less of a problem though.
Made sure to get the exact model of the laptop to get the right keyboard.

Good luck!

This is either the hardrive that has failed or windows cannot find the c:\ boot volume. You will need to start your pc up with your xp cd in and and when it's installed all the set up files press 'R' for repair, this will overwrite all the system files, without deleteing any of your saved files and programmes.
