Question about HP Compaq Evo Notebook N600c

1 Answer

I think i converted to fat 32 now laptop is a mess! compaq evo n400c.

Let me start from the beginning. I have a compaq evo n400c notebook i bought it wireless ready and with windows xp installed it was perfect. I was then told the version of windows was not real and all i had was a version of windows 98 and 98se, So my sister put in the windows 98 disc and the laptop has never worked since all of the writing went big and all of the stuff that was on it is now gone. So i went to the compaq site and down loaded all the drivers and now atleast the screen is back to normal but it's still comming up with things like missing libary and all sorts of errors also the wireless is not working (its a card you put in the side). So i tried to install 98se and its telling me i need 98 upgrade, is that right? there is no install/uninstall for windows 98 in the add and remove progams and to top it all my sister says she converted it to fat32 she remembers it asking her if she wanted to change it from fat16. Is there no way that i can delete everything and start from scratch with windows 98 second edition. I can find no factory settings. Do you know what i mean? totally wipe the laptop.
I am sorry to ask this but could you explain like you would to a child as I am a Computer Div. many thanks kind regards Liz.

You have to completely reinstall the Operating System on your laptop at this point but I would re-install either Windows 2000 or XP since you will have less problem with wireless drivers, printer drivers, plug ins, etc. Make sure you have a valid Windows CD with serial numbers. After that place Windows XP CD into CD-ROM and Reboot. And you dont have to worry about converting to fat32 as Windows 2000 or XP is already a fat32 file system. Read the prompts when it comes up and answer with appropriate answers..

your laptop should function even without a battery. Remove the battery you just bought and see if only with AC adapter, would your laptop turn on?

If not, then try removing the memory and see using a pencil eraser, clean the contacts of the memory and see if you can power your laptop with only ac
