    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.

    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.
