Packard Bell, not to be confused with Hewlett-Packard, was an electronics company which manufactured PCs of such terrible quality that its products are aptly referred to as "Packaged Hell." Once you purchased one of their machines, you were stuck with a heap of crap after the motherboard or power supply invariably failed (the company insisted on using odd form factors making sure spare parts were impossible to find). Fortunately, the company ceased selling its crash-happy computers in the U.S. in 2000. Unfortunately, the brand continues to plague the European market.
You: hi sir, I'd like to buy a power supply for an A8550 Packard Bell.
Clerk: *blink*
You: uhh...well?
Clerk: may I interest you in a high-powered rifle for the disposal of your machine?
