Clarification Request
Which OS?

In reply to: it all started with me factory reseting my Packard bell !

Since factory restore fails, we have to use the maker's restore media (you made it long ago or order it.) But if this ran W10 we can use the Microsoft Media Creation Kit to make a DVD or USB to boot, wipe and do a clean install.

If you want to just put it into service as anything, then go get a Linux stick or DVD and install that OS.

Sometimes I have to force my way to the BIOS. HOW?

In reply to: Also! It wount boot from CD's since theres no Bio's access!

I unplug the HDD so it can't boot the OS and let me to the BIOS.

-> HOWEVER we don't need the BIOS 99.99% of the time for a clean install of the OS. We only need to know what Fkey to press to select the other bootable devices.

But as machines age the boot from DVD (Windows 7 and on do not fit on CD) or from USB when the DVD drive fails.

It may be the F12 button but you might have to remove the HDD to enable it.
