  1. Hi and thanks for taking your time to read my post.

    I have a packard bell easynote tk85
    yesterday i was putting songs on to itunes, all the songs i got where off an external HDD and they where safe. when i put them on to itunes i started to play them, they started to skip and sounded all choppy. So i went to close itunes and it froze, after about 10 mins still nothing happend, i went into task mannager(ctrl-alt-del) and closed it from there, then i closed task mannager, and then all of my shortcuts on my desktop went away and then my gadgets. My laptop then shut down, i went back to turn it on. when i turn it on, the Packard Bell logo appears, and then it shuts down by its self, and it turns on by its self and it turns off by its self and it keeps repating this until i take the battary out. All the Fans seem to be working.

    Some of my laptop specs are
    OS: Windows 7 home premium 64-bit
    Processor: Intel Core i3-370m
    Memory: 6GB DDR3 Memory
    and it has a 640GB HDD.
    if you require aneymore information just ask.

    My Laptop is only a few days old.

    I would appreciate aney information given.

    Thanks
    Ciaran

    I would return it for a new one. You shouldn't have to deal with the problem if it is only a few days old.
