Question about Compaq Deskpro EN PC Desktop
I HAVE A COMPAQ DESKPRO en WHICH USED TO HAVE WINDOWS 98 BUT NOW HAS WINDOWS XP DELL SOFTWARE / NEED HELP PLEASE
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
