Re: When i boot my computer nothing happens
You may have ahad a glitch in the system, go into your bios (F2 or DEL)on boot up and and go into the menu pci and peripherals or similair and look down to the primary graphics controller to see if you are able to set it to your agp card from onboard.
If so save settings and exit and try again, but theres noting to say that your graphics card isn't faulty.

I currently have installed is Ati Radeon HD2400 AGP 256MB graphics card and im looking to upgrade it to this Sapphire Radeon HD3650 512MB AGP Graphics Card will it risk my computer to overheat, or is my computer not good enough to run such graphics card
You may be overloading your RAM capability. If you have too many things running at once (some you may not even be aware of) could slow down or even freeze your computer. By opening up your task manager, you can see what programs are running right now.
Why do you want to change CPU settings? Are you trying to overclock your processor? Packard Bell is a bottom of the line desktop (now owned by Acer) and I am sure they have no BIOS support for tweaking the CPU settings.
No. And old isn't what your PC is......it's ancient. Packard Bell machines from that era were in proprietary cases, making upgrades difficult if not impossible. Additionally, the power supply will probably be underpowered and will may not have the correct power connectors for modern mainboards . It's time to part with the old relic and get a new one.
ok what you need to do is put the disk in the cd drive then shutdown your pc then start it again wen the first screen shows up usually displaying the brand name with some options at the bottom of the screen select the option, boot options and select boot from cd rom and that should start the recovery process which will guide u through itself
