Question about HP Pavilion 6745C (P1442A) PC Desktop
When i start PC after HP invent screen I get error message the it cant find operating system. I have a new window 98 disc which wont be recognized from cd.
Windows 98 you ussualy had to boot from a 98 boot disk, which used to be on a stiffy. So, have you tried to boot from an XP cd? Also check to make sure that your boot priority is right so that the pc will try and boot from CD rom first and then HDD. Yiou can change these settings in CMOS setup.

Are you intending on reinstalling windows? If so follow these steps;
YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR DATA IF YOU FOLLOW MY METHOD
Enter your BIOS menu - This is generally accessed by tapping F1 or Del when the computer is booting, but it should be displayed on the screen as the computer starts
Find the "Boot Options" menu sometimes it can be a tab or under advanced options each BIOS varies
Set you 1st boot device to CD/DVD
Reboot with the disk in drive
You should be prompted to hit any key to boot from CD - Do so
The CD will begin the installation process
Delete your current partition and reformat the hard drive in the format of your choice then begin the installation process
It is pretty simple from there
I DO NOT advise doing this is you are not confident with your abilities it may be a job for your local technician.
