To go through the recovery program I think you tap the F11 button as you start up. Press the power button and keep tapping F11 until the recovery program starts. I have restored my easynote L4 back to factory settings twice with this utility.

However, I get the impression you have already done this and you are experiencing what's known as the Blue Screen Of Death BSOD. Don't let this term frighten you, it doesn't mean the laptop is fried. My laptop only came with 250mb of ram, so I upgraded and installed another stick in the spare port. Had you installed any more ram yourself? As postmanfw says...need to know what was happening before you tried to restore back to factory settings.

What problems were you having before doing the recovery with disk?

Do you have access to aother pc? If so you need to get a program called memtest that tests the ram in you computer. Its a free program from here 

www.memtest86.com

You need to burn a cd with the unzipped iso image on it and then let the computer boot up from that to test if ram is faulty.

Instructions are on the site.

You need an OS disc or the recovery disc to fix the bootmgr error. Fixing that error require accessing recovery console which came with the OS disc or recovery disc of your computer. The only solution is to get an OS disc or recovery disc.

Packard bell easy note lm85 recovery management & updator software download link please


Hi

When you hit the power key also hit the F11 key keep pressing it until you get into the
recovery box

then follow on screen instructions

please back up all you files or pictures ist onto a disc or pendrive
because if you take it back to factory settings you will loose everything that you have put onto the
laptop but the bonus is that you will have a nice clean hoopefully sweet running laptop

good luck

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

I updated the bios for my packard bell easy note laptop, model L4014. The laptop now just boots and reboots. It seems to have lost my drives. How do I resolve this problem


go into your bios and have a look at your boot order, when you do a bios update, usually it sets bios to default setting, most of the time making dvd drive 1st boot rather then hdd.
might help.

Recovery help needed for packard bell laptop


So you are using two different XP discs with two different activation codes? That may cause problems. Anyway you are probably already formated with NTFS. So it sounds like you are trying to re-install XP? Go in set-up and choose the CD/DVD ROM drive as the first boot device then start up with the XP disc in the drive. Use the disc for the original XP that was on the computer. This may get you to a point where you can re-install.

Packard Bell Easynote L4 turns off after Bios


I would try a BIOS update first. Go to the manufacturer website and find the BIOS update for your model. Also, you mentioned replacing the memory. Are you positive it is the correct memory? Were you having the problem before you replaced the memory? If you have the wrong memory in a computer it will give a "beep code" and won't boot up.

Pac Bell Easy Note Sc - boot problems


Hi,
I think you should remove your Memory RAM at the back of the laptop and wipe the edges with a clean white sheet.you can locate this also using your manual
Put it back and lets notice the results..
But if the problem still exists then i think you should change the memory RAM with a good one..

Please let me get back to me and let me know the results..
Thanks
