Question about Compaq Presario 1275 Notebook
I have the same problem that Zyro13 posted on mar-9-08. My system locks at the "starting windows" when I try to reinstall xp and on the reboot I get the "save to disk file not found run phdisk for information. File: create new. Partition: consult manual" message. would gladly pay for copies of the disks (only have dialup and anything over 2.5 meg is almost imposable to download) . no files on drive that I can't replace. Thanks for any help in advance.
The presario 1275 was made in 1999, and it is more than likely the CMOS battery. this was the problem on a unit I recently repaired.
Replace the CMOS battery. If you are inclined to do it yourself, you should be able to find instructions online to disassemble the laptop yourself. when you do the job, be careful with the metal heat shield plate. It has many grounding tapes which should be re-secured when re-assembling the unit.
You should be able to find a replacement at Radio Shack (CR1220).
