Question about Packard Bell Easy One Silver 2101 Notebook

2 Answers

Dvd codes i do a lot of travelling and bought a packard bell easy note fot light and easy travel, however, trying to play dvd's from diffrent countries is proving difficult. My laptop asks me to select a region and only allows me to do this 5 times, which is ridiculous. I had a Samsung before and it never asked me to select a region. I have since learned that there are codes which can be used to unlock the dvd player, but i'm having trouble finding it.

I have a Packard Bell EasyNote TH36. The laptop won't boot up. It's stuck on the purple Packard Bell page, I cant access BIOS and I can't click F12 - When I do it just freezes on the boot


make sure that your RAM and Cmos battery have dust free secure seatings

some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in


Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty

graphics card is seated properly with no dust in the socket you might have to remove it to check for dust

a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and to its continue its cycle and to have and end to function

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure make sure the connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty
a computer needs all electric current and computer data to travel to and through every working device and have an end to work properly click start right click on my computer so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

Packard Bell Easynote E2316, DVD drive. My DVD drive will allow me to write to DVD+R related media, but does not write to DVD-R media. Usually I am pretty good with finding out the reasons why, but...


Sometimes, the specific brand and manufacturer of the media is an issue, not the DVD+R or DVD-R style.

A lot of the time, a firmware update to the DVD drive allows the DVD writer to work with a broader range of blank media.

Since this model is so old, Packard Bell does not offer firmware updates. If you can identify the manufacturer and model of the DVD drive in the laptop, you may be able to locate a third party firmware installer at places like www.rpc1.org.

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.

Need to make laptop notebook packard bell dvd region free locked on o1


You can only change the region code up to 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play any region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

Easy Note W3332 BIOS shows NEC DVD + RW ND-6650A; does not play DVD's


You will have to go to the manufacturer of the dvd player itself. In your device manager, find the maker and model number of the dvd drive. Go to that company's site and look under support. There you can usually find the bios updates for every model. Flash the bios on the dvd drive. This is for the dvd drive, not the motherboard. This should fix any problem you have with the drive being recognized as what it actually is. Hopes this helps!
