OK Get a docking port the dock has two ports one for cd-rom the other has muti-capabilitys but anyway this will solve ur problem.

The other way and cheaper way is to get a laptop to desktop ide converter hook up laptop hdd and reformat this will also tell you if u can get XP but i think the compaq comes with a 4GB and xp pro is 2.5GB so just install xp and the compaq armada's drivers. Hope it Helps

Akilesh yadav hp laptop not install windows xp


If it is an older computer, the motherboard may not accept an XP installation. I have older desktops that will not accept an XP install but work fine with Win 98 and ME.

If newer model the problem could be with the disk or the cd reader. A defect in either will prevent an install.

Compaq presario 1630 wont install chipset


Hello,Is this the same version of windows you had installed prior to the reinstall? the 1630 is an older laptop and shipped with small hard drives and preloaded with windows 98. Windows XP is much larger than 98 and therefore using all of your hard drive space. Are you able to go to click "my computer" and click on c drive and see how much disk space is left?

Replace the AC Adapter, (ebay from £10.00).
Did it come with XP on it? Mine came with Vista and there are conflicts with XP and graphic adapters. There is no XP driver for the ATI adapter in mine.
Go online to Toshiba and download all of the updated drivers that you require. A user friendly system.

Cd rom will not read. have just put windows 98 on instead of xp, hard disc was formated, have win 98 now, but cd wont work or if i plug in usb memory stick


With Windows 98 you MUST install a suitable driver in addition to Windows 98 to talk to CD Roms. I believe there is also a general service routine that must be loaded.

XP has all this functionality built in.
