    Dear Expert,
    I think this solution is possible with a windows PC. I am using a Macbook laptop whose instructions are dissimilar to what you have given. I will be obliged if you can customize for me.

Go to My Computer and Right click on the icon

Click the 'Hardware' Tab

Click 'Device Manager'

Click the '+' by Universal Serial Bus Controllers

Now plug your MP3 Player in

Now click the thing which has the excalmation mark by it, it should already be highlighted

Click the 'driver' tab

Click 'uninstall',It may ask you whether you are sure, click 'yes' if it does

Now plug your device into a DIFFERENT USB port, the driver should install and all should be working fine.

Be sure it is powered and on when you connect it ..and also the driver was installed into computer ...after that if it doesn't detect it the add new hardware wizard from the control panel ..and select the already added feature..and see if it detects it ..If it do not came with a driver ..t means it is a plug and play device and it will be seen and installed auto ..
after that you should see it in the my computer folder as a drive ..(removable ) ..
al so be sure you confirm the connection with the p con the player if it asks ..(or take a look if it has a pc connection mode on menu or like a button feature)

Cannot switch on wireless connection Packard bell laptop does not have switch

Wireless problems with a Packard Bell PC or laptop can be caused by a variety of issues.

The best troubleshooting resources are the documentation that came supplied with the computer, and the Support section of the Packard Bell website.

Unable To Detect Wireless Network

If the Packard Bell machine is unable to detect a wireless network, the computer itself or the network could be at fault.

Check that a wireless signal is being broadcast via another PC or device, and check that are wireless adapter is installed, complete with the latest drivers, which are available at the Packard Bell website.

Unreliable Wireless Network

If the wireless connection is unreliable, intermittent or very slow, it suggests a problem with the Wi-Fi broadcast.

Try positioning the computer closer to the router broadcasting the wireless signal, or use a signal booster to improve the range.

Download and install the latest driver updates from the Packard Bell website and through the Windows Update tool.

Unable To Connect To Wireless Network

If the computer can detect the network but is unable to connect to it, a network security key may be required. This should have been configured by the person who set up the network. Consult the documentation that came with your router for details of how to change it or generate a new key.

Hope this helps

HDMi screen doesn't turn on

First, remove your HDMI-cable from your monitor and pc, then plug it back in.

If this doesn't work, go to your desktop and press your right-mouse button at an empty space and then select resolution. Then press detect.

I hope this works.

Hi there, i do not have the HDD yet but I am shopping around for a HDD that I can use to connect directly to my HDTV HDMI or USB port, would this product be suitable for that purpose?, will it need...

If what you need is to store media like video and pictures on the hard drive for playing on your HDTV then the Seagate ST320005EXA101RK may not be the right choice for you. What you need is an HD media device with internal storage. You could try one of the following:
  • IOMEGA Screenplay director HD Multimedia Hard drive
  • Packard Bell Studio ST Media Storage Drive
  • Apple TV
  • Pixel Magic HD Media Box
If you have any more questions feel free to come by again here at
You have a great day!

No audio devices installed

Did you try another available IO/SLOT on the motherboard? If so, go to the realtek website and download latest driver for that model number. Install audio card then update the driver using the new version. I hope this helps.

Hi i have a packardbell easy note mx recently my windows xp is crashed so i had installed piracy windows xp its working normally ,i just need to know that on the back of my laptop their is a serial number...

Yes, as long as it's same XP as you had before (either Home, Professional or Media Centre Edition). Microsoft activation recognises serial number and also version of OS you are activating, so as long as these both match, no problem. As far as driver disc goes, contact store you bought it from, they just may have needed a copy as one stage, or be able to contact somebody who owns the same model to see if they would be prepared to burn a copy for you. Hope this helps

Samsung media studio gone crazy

I think you have a virus on your computer. If there is any hope for your songs, try to copy them to another computer. If they don't work there, they are probably infected. Sorry!
