Need to install operating system on laptop with no cd rom or driv

I just purchased a twinhead slimnote 5100c laptop but it came with no cd rom it only has a floppy drive. My problem is that I have to install an operating system into this laptop and im unsure how to do this without a cd rom drive in this computer. I also thought about purchasing an external cd rom for this but there is no usb hookup on this paticular laptop either. please help!!

I believe this model of laptop was designed for Windows 95, which can be installed using only floppy disks. That would be just about your only solution. I would not recommend trying to install XP or anything on it, due to the outdated hardware. If it has a PCMCIA Slot on it (most do) you can buy a USB adapter that goes in there. But, as I stated before, I would just install Windows 95 on it (or possibly 98SE) Good Luck!

Laptop comes on great and seems to make all the right noise but the screen looks like the old vhf/uhf tv screens from the 60's....wont show a thing encept "fuzzy static"...it's a slimnote...


Hmmm, well either your Video Driver needs to be re-installed or you need to change the windows resolution settings.

XP: Right click the desktop and left click properties. Clickthe Settings tab and you will see a slider bar in the middle left. Move the barto the right or left one at a time and eventually you will hit the correctsettings for the monitor.

Vista/Win7: Right click the desktop and left click on Screen Resolution. Whereit says Resolution, you can change the settings to the Recommended settings foryour specific monitor.

Cheers!

Twinhead Efio 121i dead


It is problem with your laptop's SMPS ie. Switched Mode Power Supply.

Due to which your laptop can't get regulated power supply neither from Power Cord nor from Battery.

Yes, your LED will show charging but its useless because your laptop's Mother Board Chip is not getting power.

So please ask some hardware engineer to replace it.

Rate this solution if it was helpful to you.

With Regards,

Broken DC in Jack


I agree, the best option is most likely a motherboard replacement.

You can search Ebay, there are several places that advertise DC power jack repair, But from my experience, repair is an iffy proposition.

Will not boot ??


sounds like a problem i had with a philips laptop (which appears to be a twinhead repackaged as a philips)

This might sound weird but it works........

Take the battery out and disconnect from the ac
Press and hold the power button for about 40secs
connect the ac but don't replace the battery and press the power button
then replace the battery and turn it on. it should work

Twinhead laptop


The floppy version of Oak CD Rom Driver it is trying to install, will only work on certain types of CD drives (usually IDE or IDE-compliant SCSI internals). It is rare that it will work on an "external" CD Rom. Very unlikely.

However, if this is a good brand-name external CD drive like a "Backpack", you can make a floppy boot disk with their own proprietary driver (look on their website or old version sites). Usually the external CD drive manufacturer will provide either a driver to add to a MS boot floppy, or they will provide a specialized floppy image that you can use instead of the MS boot floppy.
