System disc error Compaq Pesario 1275

My daughter bought this laptop from a friend and said all that is needed is to add win xp to it...... All we get is (Invalid System Disk) ,(Replace the disk, and then press any key) We own a Windows XP CD but it will not load at all. Also, when we boot it up everything pass's except there is an error 0270: real Time Clock Error.Any Suggestions would be welcomed :) Thanks you

This is either an issue with the CMOS batter which may need to be changed, I have seen this error on thinkpads and one way of resolving it is to install an older BIOS, you can download a BIOS from your machine and install it using there instructions

Hope this helps

Presario 1275 win xp sp2 restore and system recovery disks


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).

Presario f700 drivers


You have to download XP drivers from the manufacturer's website. This normally happens because your harware was designed for the new OS(Vista).

Just go to hp.com and search for the model of your Laptop.
