How do I connect the pwer,reset,pwr led, hdd led on packard bell iextreme m5730 motherboard, serial number PTU300X0109251007D

They have a crappy website. I couldn't even find a motherboard diagram in the manual. You can determine which is the power pins by trying plugging the power connector in on each set of pins and pushing the power button until it starts. It needs to be plugged in when you try pushing the power button of course.There would be around 10 pins in two rows the power pins would be on the same row. they should be near the edge of the mother board and usually the power button pins are on the row furthest from the edge. I can't guarantee that though

Newer monitor won't work with packard Bell R450

Wow, it's about time to dump the Packard Bell. Maybe the Video Card has gone bad in the Packard Bell and if you fix it your old monitor might work.

Packard bell desktop wont boot up properly. packard bell screen shown but cant use the commands like f8 and f2 wont work

Hello JD , It may be an issue with your keyboard not registering before you get into windows. I have a couple recommendations for fixing this problem which are two of the more common issues. The first idea is if you are using both a USB Mouse/Keyboard, consider trying to find a PS2 (The classic/old purple or green circular connections) and hooking that up instead. You could buy a new one, but this isn't a 100% guaranteed fix so if at all possible I'd try and borrow one from a friend who may have old computer parts lying around. They however aren't very expensive and you would only need the Keyboard to complete a reformat. The second idea works for most people but some people may not feel comfortable doing it. It involves opening up the computer. 1) Turn off computer 2) Unplug it 3) Open it up 4)Make sure you ground yourself before touching anything inside it 5) Locate a watch battery thing on the motherboard 6) Pop it out, may need a flat head screwdriver for this, but don't be too forceful 7) If there's a power button on the motherboard, hold it for a few seconds 8) Recommend waiting approximately 5 minutes 9)Put the battery back in where you got it 10) plug the computer back in 11) Power it back up. This is a common fix for a fair amount of people who run into this same issue. I hope that this has helped you and have a great day JD!

I havea packard bell imdeia and the bios are messed up

i cannot be sure because i have never seen inside this type of computer, but it should be the same as any other.
on a normal motherboard there are 2 ways to reset the BIOS, the first of these is to remove and then replace the cmos jumper. the second is to remove the cmos batterry wait 5-10 minutes and then put it back into its slot.
i prefer the second method as it is easier and removes the confusion and mess of jumpers.
once the case of your computer is off the cmos batterry should be easy to see, it looks like a watch batterry and is about the size of a 10 cent peice. normally you will require a small flat head screew driver to remove the batterry

My packard bell s4 laptop computer screen has turned 270 degrees clockwise and i don't know how to turn it back. help please! :)

I have seen this before with some ATI graphics card. In the tray beside the clock should be an icon for the graphics card utilities. If you right click on there you should find an option to change it back.

Though, I remember navigating with a twisted screen was hard. Good luck.

No sound on pc

are you using itunes to play your music? There are a number of different volume controls, double click the little speaker icon in the bottom right corner, make sure all the volume levels are at maximum and that the mute box isn't ticked. If you have a media keyboard with volume controls make sure volume is up and again not muted. Failing that double check your speakers are plugged into the correct socket, usually the green one.
