"...the problem i am having is my computer disks are for use with packard bell only ...."
Don't you have a PBell computer then? If you do, how is that a problem? If you don't then I presume you shouldn't be using them.
Which operating system is this please?How have you managed to get onto your computer if you haven't completed a new installation?
It matters what you've done, as it may show what you may have done incorrectly.
