If you have a router with two thernet ports you can connect them together using this.
Otherwise you can take the hard drive out and connect it to your new computer but this can be tricky to do.
The other thing you could do is buy a USB hard disk caddy. Fit you hard drive into this and then connect it to the USB port of your new computer. Make sure the caddy will take your size and type of hard disk.

Packard Bell Master CD


If I where looking for this, I'd hit up yellowpages.com and look for all computer shops, antique malls, pawnshops and flea markets in the area and start making calls to see if they have antiquated technology laying around.

I, personally, love tinkering around with these old machines. It's been a hobby since they where new! lol And I'm a pawn broker, so I'd be one shop that may have what you need. (I don't, unfortunately, I looked.) And you'd be shocked what all you can find for a quarter at a flea market or an antique mall.

Remove the hard disk and attach it to an USB hard drive adapter and then connect it into the USB port of a working computer. This computer will detect the hard drive as an external storage device, then you can open the various folders and files to copy your files to this computer or burn your data to a CD/DVD disc or USB flash drive.
Return you hard disk back to your Packard Bell so you can reinstall Windows.

Can't get past the 'Packard Bell' logo page when turning on pc


It seems to me that the problem is in your BIOS.. has the system taken any hard knocks lately? lightning strikes? brownouts? how old is the system? IF it has a FLASH BIOS you may be able to contact Packard Hell and get a new bios flas utility.. either online or direct marketing. if the system is more than 5 yrs old, maybe it's time to replace it :)

How do i remove the hardrive from my packard bell club 79 computer?I have some pics on there i would like to put on my new pc,my old packard club 79 will no longer connect to the net though(so i cant...


the harddrive is likely to be located with some screws

Remove these screws
There will be a ribbon cable and a power lead - remove these
you will then need to install this into your current PC.
1 - Do you have a spare line or space on an IDE line...
2 - You will need to establish whether you are on primary or secondary line, and then if you need to set your hard drive to be a master or slave Hard drive (recommned slave on the 'other' line to your master hard drive) - this will improve the communication speed.
