It is a Packard Bell Legend 406CD
Intel 75 MHz Pentium processer
850 MB Hard Disk Drive
8 MB of RAM, up gradedable to 72 MB
it has Windows 95

The problem that i am having is i hae a ! on the VLSI PCI to ISA Plug and Play bridge and when you double click on it , it says failure change drives for it to see if it works. This problem happened about 4 months ago and before that it worked just fine someone got on it and started to change stuff on it when i was gone so i think they did something that they where not to do and did not tell me because my cd-rom will not work either.
Please beable to help me.

OMG.



Ralyn, I hope the tech has some ideas on this one.

There has to be some way you can upgrade. Please stick around and we will guide you to a new level.

I'm sorry. Didn't mean to rub you but it's been a long time since Iv'e seen a packard bell. They are notorious for recurring problems and have completely bailed out of the US market after being bought by NEC a few years back.

Do you still by chance have the original restore disk? Your 2 problems are probably not related.

Welcome to the board Ralyn,

I gotta say that I really don't have any real experience dealing with this type of PC anytime recently, I would got with what JAMMAN said, if you have the restore disks backup and run a full system restore. If the problem is still there after the restore some hardware in that thing may have finally quit.

For a Packard Bell it sounds like it sure hung in there. :)

Ralyn, which version of Win95 is it running? This can give us a clue as to how to get it reinstalled.

I just today bought a brand new creative 52X cd rom from Wal-mart for 40 bucks.

I think that will get it going. I have had more cdrom failures in my life than any single componant in a computer. (second being "A"drive and third being hard drive)

Your VLSI PCI to ISA Plug and Play bridge problem I don't think is effecting your drives.

Sorry about that! To get the version of Windows you have, right-click "My Computer", click on "properties", then the Windows version is listed at the top(it'll be the 4.xxxxxx number). Post it in here so we can get an idea where to start.

Ralyn,

I agree with Doonz "A new computer is a very good idea", but if for whatever reason you decide that's not the way for you to go at this time. I have a 2X out of a Packard Bell I had in 1995 and you're welcome to it (No Charge).

Let me know if you're interested and I'll clean it up, get the drivers for it and test it on one of my machines and let you know if it still works.

Packard Bell...Hewlett Packard...The New HP

The Evolution of Shoddy Design.

I've owned two Compaqs, and both of them fall apart (one old Presario 133mhz desktop, one 3650 iPAQ), or fall apart.

I've owned two HP printers, both of them deserve the Office Space treatment.

My friends have owned HP computers. We've given some of them Office Space treatments. The rest are mothballed at the advice of my friends and I.

My dad's office had Packard Bell computers, which fell apart quickly.

In conclusion, The New HP is just the evolution of failure.
