Hi all, my brother has a Packard Bell ixtreme 6073 and it will not load up. He can't boot it into safe mode, last know good configuration etc, nothing. He can get into the BIOS and we have made sure that it is trying to boot from the hard drive and not a floppy disk or CD-ROM.
I have gone to this website. (http://support.packardbell.com/uk/it...ppn=P852006001)
Under the utility tab below the picture of the PC, you can select recovery.
It states: Technical Note: This Setup will create a bootable Recovery CD automatically.
The bootdisk that will be created can be used on all Packard Bell systems shipped since July 1999.
Am I right in thinking that I could use this to repair the boot up sequence? I know that there could be a whole load of other issues it could be but would this be a good place to begin?
If that was to fail, could I use a fresh copy of Windows XP and do just a repair without losing all files or would it need to be a full reformat?
Any help at all would be much appreciated!
