How do i install windows vista off of my compaq resario 1692 laptop that has windows 98


How do you install Windows 7 on your Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, that currently has Windows 98 on it? (Win98SE?)

I would NOT.

Reasoning?

Primer:
Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System, to communicate with a device.

Windows 98, Windows XP, and Windows 7, are some examples of an O/S. (Operating System)

The optical drive (CD/DVD drive), audio, (Sound), graphics, and Ethernet, are some examples of a Device.

Let's go to HP Support, and look at the drivers available for the Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, (HP bought out Compaq),

HP Support > Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=95231&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

In the list click on the blue - Software and Driver Downloads.
(Don't believe we can use the Ampersand on here. That's why I used -
and )

Takes you to this page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=95231&

On this page you are asked to choose your Operating System.
In the rectangular box that has - Select - in it, go to the right of the box, and left-click on the blue down arrow.

In the drop down list you will see that Windows 7 is not listed.
This means there are no drivers for your laptop, and Windows 7.

There have been many people caitlynbrean, that have installed Windows 7 on their computer, only to find that it will not work.

Sorry it couldn't have been better news.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Operating system not found on my laptop wot does that mean?


Hello,
Operating system not found simply means that the laptop cannot detect that there's an operating system installed on your laptop.
It's either the hard disk got disabled in BIOS or the installed windows is corrupted. You might need to check in BIOS if the hard disk is still detected. If it is, make sure that on the Boot options, hard disk is selected as the first boot option. If it is, then that means that the windows installed on your laptop is corrupted therefore you might need to install windows using the recovery discs of your laptop.
By the way, to go to BIOS start tapping on F10 once the laptop starts to boot up.
Let me remind you that by doing this it will erase everything on the hard disk.
Good luck!

Opertaing system not found


Your hard drive may be faulty, this is why the Windows operating system not found.
Go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is detected, if not reseat the hard drive and boot up again.
If the Windows operating system not found then most likely the hard drive is faulty and to get the Notebook working again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Compaq Presario 1692 device drivers and your programs.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure
you select your model laptop and the Windowsdrivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download thedrivers: -

I have a compaq presario 1692 laptop and im using media player classic and the audio and video are out of sync when i try to play videos........what can i do to fix the problem?


Go to google and do a search for Kazaa Codec Pack. Download and install the pack. That should take care of it, if the source files weren't encoded with the audio out of sync.

My Compaq Presario F700 dropped approximately 2 feet to the floor from on top of a suitcase at the airport. It was in a case, but not a thickly padded one. When I tried to use the laptop after the fall,...


Try reseating the hard drive and the RAM modules, the fall may have slightly loosen these components.
The error message "Operating System not found" means the laptop could not find the hard disk, this problem could be the hard drive needs reseating, a faulty hard drive (they don't like being dropped), or a faulty disk controller.

Operating system not found


When your laptop starts up enter the BIOS setup and insure that the drive is recognized. If not re-seat the drive and try again. Also, are you sure the drive is compatible with the laptop.
