Question about Packard Bell Easy One Silver 2101 Notebook
i have a packard bell easy note laptop that refuses to boot/start at all.
i was having problems anyway so i did a recovery/ formatt where it wiped off all software and restored it back to factory settings.via the start menu( cant remember which button!)
as these do not come with a recovery cd!
now when i press the start button i get the error recovery screen with safe mode etc
if i press anything i get the windows loading bar for about 3 seconds,screen flashes blue with some kind of message(which vanishes so fast you cant read it,very helpfull!) then turns off or restarts only for the same thing to happen,
please bear in mind that im really not to clever on the pc side so any help in pc thick /english please!
thanks for your time Gary
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
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.
