  • There's a recovery option for you to restore your system to default setting, infact you should have create a recovery disc in the first place incase your netbook fail & can't boot into windows.

    Since you mention you can't access into windows, the other alternative is to press ALT+F10 during POST (power on self test) to enable the recovery management option, if is still not enable, hit F2 when you power on your netbook, next use left or right arrow key to select main menu, press the down key till F12 boot menu is selected, next hit F5 to change this setting to enable and next exit, prior to that remember to save the setting and reboot your netbook and try the above step again

    Alternatively you might wanna try safe mode if the above step fail

  • Since the built-in recovery methods did not work, You must contact Packard Bell support and purchase a recovery disk from them or send\take the netbook to an authorized repair center.
