Hii,
Understanding that you have installed XP on a computer which has been shipped with win 98, by formatting both C: and D: , you are now facing the problem.. however I did not understand the Exact Issue when you say "AM NOT ABLE TO UPDATE WITH THE REQIRED SOFTWARE" .. Are you talking about Device Drivers??
If that is the case you can login to HP website to find the drivers under support and drivers page. Or else go to device manager by Start> right lick on My Computer> Properties> Hardware Tab > Device Manager and then select the driver which you want to install and then right click on it and then selsct UPDATE DRIVER. which would search itself for the latest drivers available over internet.
In any case I recommend you to try with HP website.
Or else you need to purchase recovery discs from HP which I believe might not be available as this is seeming to be an old computer. 
Lets hope that the issue will be resolved quickly.

If u have Windows Xp Cd just Boot from the CD and once when Partition Table comes at that time delete all the partition and create new partitions and select C : Drive and just format with NTFS or FAT File system Recommended is NTFS it will install Windows Xp on particular drive later once when windows is totaly up i.e, when desktop comes u just click on the other drives it will ask for Format just format it.

But the Problem u face is the drivers some drivers it will take automatically some it will not take at that time u should put u r machine model number and name in google and search

Free download communication controller driver for compaq deskpro


Since the complete model information was not provided I can not link you directly to the driver itself. You may however visit http://www8.hp.com/us/en/support-drivers.html and type in the complete model information in the driver search (eg. Deskpro XXXX "Replace XXXX with the model number") and it will take you to the driver download areas. Communication Controller is typically going to be a Modem Driver.

I need 2 reset the settings on a compaq deskpro en. so i can use a new hard drive that has windows xp pro sp1 & sp2 that i had install. it will not show on my screen. please help with this!.


the problem with using a hard drive that has a preexisting installation of windows is that you may run into architecture problems (different CPUs can cause this), or hard drive controller problems. Your best bet is to install XP again from the install disk, and call windows; from my experience they have just given me a new installation key.
