Don't have a clue, but this site is the only place on the net I can find pertaining to Packard Bell, since they went out of business a few years ago.

Ray's Packard Bell Site (http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Lakes/8774/index.html)

Hope you can get some help there. Sounds like a problem reading the CD ROM, but I have no idea what the specific error message may indicate. Could be running out of conventional memory, unable to read from the drive, not enough drive space, etc.

If you had everything...Where would you put it?
