Question about Packard Bell PC Desktops

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.

I have a similar problem with a Packard Bell OneTwo S PG4G1TU01 : when switching it on, it work a few minutes and suddenly shutdown, as a brutal power down. But the green light at the bottom still working. I have changed the extern power supply and now it work fine... The new power supply is a 90W model, not a 65W like the original one. Maybe it can help ?

Huh! Sounds like a power issue. Unplug, try cleaning out the guts in case something got in there, and retry, and again with a spare power supply if things are still bad. It would help to know whether something other than the power supply's clicking, I suppose....

F1 is probably the key to enter the Bios setup utility. Press and hold the F1 key immediately after you start the machine. Go to the boot priority section, and set your CD-Rom as first boot device. Press f10 to save the settings and reboot with your recovery disk installed

Alot of times especially hp the computer goes into self protect mode and will not turn on. You can undo this by unplugging the machine and pressing in the power button for 10 secs. Plug machine back in and try again. If that fials you most likely have a fualty power supply and those are cheap in comparison to a new computer, around 40 bucks maybe less.

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.
