Hello

I hope someone can help. I am in New Zealand and one of our stores sell a
range of Packard Bell I-Media PC's, however I cannot find these *recent*
models on any PB website, and their websites I have looked at seem to have
not been updated in a few years. Sites looked at are both the NZ and
Australian sites:

NZ: http://www.packardbell.co.nz/start.asp?CID=9
Aust: http://www.packardbell.com.au/start.asp?CID=1

Currently I own an IBM computer and I found their website had good support,
and was easy to download updated drivers when the need came about. How would
you update PB drivers easily? I tried via the PB site, but that took me to a
European site and couldn't find anything on these models at all. Any advice,
reply to group or to me by email.

The store where you can see these models is:
(if links don't wrap correctly, please copy/paste into your browser)

http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/...
Id=10001&catalogId=10001&categoryId=10175&crumb=10005-10175&pageNo=1&orderBy
=3&orderAscending=true

Make sure "sort list by..." is set to "Brand: A to Z", then you'll need to
go to Page 5 to see Packard Bell. The models I am referring to are:

Imedia M850
http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/...
d=10001&catalogId=10001&productId=40209&crumb=10005-10175

Imedia M851
http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/...
d=10001&catalogId=10001&productId=40213&crumb=10005-10175

Imedia M852
http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/...
d=10001&catalogId=10001&productId=40217&crumb=10005-10175

Imedia M858
http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/...
d=10001&catalogId=10001&productId=40609&crumb=10005-10175

I am also sending this to the "contact" address referred to on the NZ
Packard Bell website incase they can also reply.

Thanks to all,
Aaron.

I have checked the links to the NoelLeeming websites, and they don't seem to
work properly. Best to go the the following site, then in the search box
just type packard bell:

http://www.noelleeming.co.nz/

The models I am referring to are NOT on the UK site either. I have been
there before. Maybe the PC's have a program installed that searches for
updated drivers, etc?

You know I think you got something there. Maybe Ben or Metronid or
some other kind soul can remember that program that PB used on their
systems which did exactly that. Man you bring back memories :-)

Elector,

I seem to remember an electronic version of System Credentials that would do
that. I have it on CD *somewhere*, soon as I find it, I 'll post it on my
site.

The file is called Syscred.exe. About the middle of the page.

Hi Louie:

I think the original poster was referring to the Automatic Update
feature that some systems had as an icon on the desktop. Similar to
the system credentials information. It had the purpose of clicking it
and the software and or hardware was updated or restored via these
means. Sort of like the new IBM notebooks have that crash recovery
button.

Actually I saw something on one yesterday called "PB Info Center" - whether
that is it I don't know.

I think that tells you what is on your system and your system
information like that electronic credentials. It may even be that icon
I was thinking of that click it and it updates the system.
