My friend has a packard bell easynote mv35-202
he said he dropped it accidentally
so it could not start, went to pc world
he was told that HDD needs replacing
got a new one 250gb
replaced it but BIOS won't allow to change the settings
it says primary IDE disabled, and I can not change it
when the new HDD installed it hangs before i can get in to BIOS
with old HDD I can get in to BIOS but I can not enable Primary IDE

Any ideas?

Wow Packard Bell.

There is a BIOS update dated 7/06/2007 has that update been applied? It is ver.1.07

A quick attempt at the Forum page for that model was not available due to maintainace it said, I would check back to see
others with that model and what they did to fix it.
