Question about Packard Bell Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello - wondering if you can help - my packard bell U TOW-SAN computer gave a huge bang yesterday - blew the house fuse. When switched on again - it gave another huge bang and now refuses to switch on. On/off switch does not even light up. Do you think it is power supply or motherboards? Would appreciate your comments - thanks!

Definitely the power supply. However, it could have damaged the motherboard as well but you won't know until you replace the power supply.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

If it was a large bang and flash of light as you described this would have been a short circuit, and this is why the circuit breaker tripped. A fuse wouldn't make as much noise and if the fuse blew the breaker wouldn't normally trip. Looking at the picture of the range it looks like the heating elements are under the glass top. This will have to be dismantled and if the short circuit isn't obvious, the elements will have to be tested to find the faulty one.

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.
