    Ahh. No help The drives IDE and the BIOS screen never appears! Unlucky me, and with regards to drivers I cannot find any drivers for the IMedia on the "Big Wire" called the internet. Network Setup, by setting up the OS via Ethernet, would this work? If so how would I install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS via Ethernet?

If it is a sata Hdd you have to reinstall it ..cause the sata driver on the os ..is from the other computer ..or go to bios ..and in the drives feature..look for a function called AHCI and disable it ...
after that will boot with the windows installed..but you will have to reinstall the windows anyway ..and if it is a raid sata you need to insert a diskette with the sata driver during ..or disable the ahci function ..for to let it see the HDD ..if not all it will say is that the hdd was not found..or if you try to boot with this windows on it .will say that the media is missing ..
beter to set the defaults in the bios ..and after that look for that funstion to be disabled..or disable the raid sata ..and enable teh sata Ide..instead..it is the same thing ..and will pick up the sata hdd with no sweat ..

I want to reformat PB MS2303


Packard Bell is a computer manufacturer, now owned by Acer. Restoring your computer will erase the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Microsoft Windows. This is beneficial if the Packard Bell is showing its age and running extremely slow or has been hit with an incurable virus infection. Before attempting to restore the system, be sure to back up any data you wish to save.

1.Insert the Windows Setup CD/DVD into the computer's optical drive. The disc will have been included with the Packard Bell computer.

2.Restart the computer with the disc inserted. A black screen will appear when the disc is detected, displaying "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." Press any key on the keyboard to launch the Windows installer. The "Install Windows" screen will appear.

3.Click "Next."

4.Select "I accept the license terms" and click "Next."

5.Click "Custom" when asked what type of installation you'd like. The other option is "Upgrade," but in order to restore your Packard Bell system to its factory settings, you must reformat the hard drive.

6.Click "Drive Options" when asked where to install Windows. Select the C: drive and click "Erase." Select the unallocated space after it has been erased, and click "Format." Format the space using the "NTFS" file system.

7.Click "Next" and Windows will begin reinstalling on the Packard Bell's hard drive. The system will reboot when finished and launch into your newly restored Packard Bell.

I have a packard bell computer. an d there is no one usb gate that works


I dont believe that Packard Bell's ever came with USB ports on them. You can purchase a USB card and install it into your computer to give you access to USB devices. You can try looking for a USB card on either Ebay or try here www.geeks.com

I hope this helps you out, if it does please give me a YES that I did try to assist you. Thank you

Trying to load packard bell ,its formated hard drive ,next screen i have c:\ what do i put to continue



The system is trying to boot from the C drive i,e, the HDD, you need to continue after formatting from the CD/DVD.

Presumable it initially booted from the disk and you went through the procedure wizard of telling the computer to install a fresh copy of the operating system deleting any existing operating systems, and you didn't ask it to partition the disk and retain the OS that was originally on the HDD.

After formatting it should continue to install the OS on the drive you specified from the CD/DVD disk.

Start again you have nothing to lose as the HDD is now formatted and all previous information is lost, but this time read the screens that come up carefully.

One final point you did put the disk in then power up the computer didn't you????? not put the disk in and try and re install.

The computer has to be booted from the disk.

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.

Ubuntu requires high graphic memory on your computer. It could install on some components but it doesn't work on whole installation process. If you are having a desktop machine, add graphic/video card to the motherboard so that Ubuntu will finally be installed in your computer.


Thanks

If you cannot see the speaker icon in the taskbar, click on Start > Control Panel > Sounds and Audio Devices and tick place icon in the taskbar. That's if a driver has been installed for your sound device which is a creative sounblaster I think.
