Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have an old iXtreme E302 Packard Bell it has been getting hot every so often and has a hot smell coming from it when I leave it running. I had a computer repairer look at it and he installed a new battery and blew out the dust but he could not find anything wrong. Lately the monitor is going blank but the blue light is still on, the only way to turn it off is at the power point. It has been running very slowly since the repairer ran tests on it. Is there anything I can do to overcome these problems? Thanks

Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Usually if the computer is getting hot it decrease the performance and the proble, that you have on your monitor is blank can be caused by a either a motherboard or the LCD is getting bad due to overheating. Computer is getting slow due to software and hardware but in your case that you can smell something hot coming from it, we can say that the cause is hardware and mostlikely the motherboard is burning inside. To fix the issue you need to have someone to check the hardware inside the computer because overheating can burn most or all the components inside your computer and you wont want that to happen.
Thanks for using Fixya

PACKARD BELL iXtreme I5622UK DVD Driver problems


You need to UNINSTALL the drivers and not delete them if you had done so on the PC. If this wont help it is possible that the OS must be reinstalled after formatting of the drive and thereby the drivers can be installed.

Hi,

Most documentation for a Packard Bell iXtreme would be here. To upgrade, repair or replace your memory, this document could detail the steps involve including opening the case.
