Hello Everyone,
For an important personal project I am focusing on Vintage Computers Items for Packard Bell. I have tried all around my state for Packard Bell Computers, Master CD, Restore Diskettes, and Documentation. If someone out there will be able to help me, it will be well regarded. Thank you for your time.

You trying to get data off the hard drive ?

You can take out the drive and perhaps install it in an external case.

Your best bet is eBay in their vintage computer section for parts.

Call Electronic Discount.  They have a sort of museum in the store - I have seen a 10KB IBM hard drive there the size of a washing machine.

Call them? Also check eBay, Craigslist and the like - you should be able to find Packard Bell items on there for a low prize.

Wish I can help with your hobby buddy.  I just can't stand their product and yeah it's outdated.  So I don't keep any of their old parts.  As a matter of fact, I build my own.  If I live anywhere near, I may find a way to help you out on that journey.  Good hunting bud.

Update: I called Electronic Discount Sales, and they had a PAckard Bell 3.1 Software Collection, but it was not for resale which is illegal. I then emailed them about the action that they will do to it. I do not live in Texas sadly. eBay's shipping prices are very expensive and I trying to find some other way. I want to avoid eBay at all costs. Thank You.

OK so you could email the CEO of Acer. They now own a large stake in packard bell. I am sure they would be able to provide details of anything you want and may have old stuff they would send you if you ask nicely.
