If you reformat you will lose all data on the hard drive.But if you need to reload the OS you can do this with the restore disc.You need to get into the Bios and when the computer first starts you need to set it to boot from CD for the first boot option.This would be in the Bios settings,it give you the key to hit to get into the bios during the brand name splash screen(if not it is usually "F2") Restart your computer with the disc in the drive and at the prompt "boot from CD hit any key" click any key to start then follow the prompts.Be sure and read each page carefully if you dont do it correctly you will have to start over again.This procedure is very time consuming and professional help is often needed if you have never done it before.You can do it but you have to read the pages carefully if you havent dont it before.During this procedure is where you will reformat and partition the drive and reload the Operating System.Afterwards you will need to get all available updates and reload any third party software.

    if you know somebody with an OS disc you can borrow,, it will work the restore disc usually have generic drivers that make almost everything work.You will still need to get updates once you finish loading the OS and get it running

Hi can you tell me where i can find the sound driver for this computer, i use to find them on the packard bell web site but its all changed now,


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Some how your BIOS got turned around, turn your computer off and back on, when your screen pops up for setup press the appropriate F-Key to setup. At the bottom of your screen you will have choices, Enter Default Settings and Exit. Reboot the computer and that should do it for ya. If It don't, Install a new copy of Windows, it knows your drive is there and it needs a new System Disk to read. Good Luck.

Fixya is not and never has been a representative for Packard Bell, Dell, HP, Sony, Gateway, or any other computer OEM or accessory hardware manufacturer. What we are is a site to where computer users can come to get some degree of professional help regarding various computer issues. The more information provided by the customer, the more likely we can be of some help. Your problem referring to a Packard Bell Imedia 1308 might be best answered on the Packard Bell site here. It would be my wish that questions that might deal with warrenty issues and manufacturer OEM issues be properly handled by the OEM in question. And there is NO doubt in my mind that Fixya has never provided a recovery disk for your or anyone's model computer. What we can do sometimes depending on our experience levels with various computers is provide information that might help someone create their own recovery disk from software that comes installed from the OEM factory on their computers. For example, my Sony Vaio has recovery software that creates factory default recovery DVDs, and Fixya has no legitimate and probably no legal reason to be providing such information. So please refer to your OEM manufacturer or the vendor who sold you the computer for these kinds of questions.
