    I believe Packard Bell has a Phoenix bios which means you don't get just a single beep. It should be giving you a series of beeps, for instance, 1 then 2 then 1 or something like that. Also, are the beeps long or short?

3 beeps no boot

3 bleeps usually relating to memory... try removing and re-inserting RAM and video cards... or try them elsewhere in another machine. It may be wise to remove all the RAMs and add one at a time while trying to reboot.

NOTE: Remove the power wait a few moments before handling each RAM.

Another cause since it's been 'sitting' a while could well be the power supply due to failing capacitors, so trying another wouldn't be a bad idea.

Change battery everything gone dead will not take land rover disc

Firstly, pop a new battery in the fob.
Now we can enter the EKA.
Close all the doors.
Turn the key in the driver door lock to the unlock position and hold there for at least 5 seconds until the alarm sounds once. Then return to centre - always ensure you return to centre and do not delay more than 10 seconds between turns, or hold in the position for more than 5 seconds or you will reset to the start. Turn to full extent of travel.
1st Digit turn to unlock the number of times specified.
2nd Digit turn to lock the number of times specified.
3rd Digit turn to unlock the number of times specified.
4th Digit turn to lock the number of times specified.
Finally turn to unlock once more. If it is correct a double bleep will sound (single bleep is incorrect code)
You now have a 5 minute delay - don't open any doors. The anti-theft indicator will continue flashing once every 2 seconds for the five minute period. When this goes out, open the door and start within 30secs.
After 3 failed attempts, the security system invokes a delay period of 10 mins during which the system will not accept any further attempts to enter a code.

My comp starts up but does nothing more apart fromfans running dont hear any beaps like it used to and nothing boots up can u help could u hazzard a guess many thanks greg

hard drive has fatal error or motherbaord is gone.
Have you recently had any viruses?
If you have the recovery discs this is going to be your only hope.
Turn off comp. turn on and insert dic.
continuously pressF11 to enter bios.
choose to boot form cd/dvd rom
this will start the repair process.
This will reinstall the original operating system, and all drivers that were originally on your system.
CAUTION!!! This will also erase all programs and file you have installed/ downloaded onto your system so be sure to back up anything you dont want to be gone forever.
Good Luck

Problem with HD writer 2.0E

The reason for this error is that there is a conflict between HD Writer and other software on your computer. I was trying to find a solution for weeks before Panasonic advised me to remove other DVD burning software on my computer. I therefore removed Pinnacle and DVD decrypter (which I believe was causing the problem), reinstalled HD Writer and then everything worked fine. Note however that the DVD-RW discs I had tried to use before were corrupted and couldn't be reformatted and therefore once you have removed the other software and reinstalled HD Writer, start again with new DVD-RW discs. Good Luck.
