Dell laptop HD


This model laptop came with a 60Gb hard drive and it will work with a 40Gb hard drive.
If it was me I would install a 60 Gb hard drive not a smaller one.

I have an old Compaq Armada 1592DMT laptop with Windows 98 and Pentium MMX. Does it have the capability to go wireless with a Netgear wireless adapter?


The short answer is yes. Just make sure you have the windows 98 drivers for the WiFi adapter you are using.

Now the long answer... well at least what you probably do not want to hear.

This baby has a maximum of 96MB of memory with a 233MHz processor (**** slow)... if you do not have the maximum memory, I would guess the performance will be painful.

Standard Memory
Maximum Memory
Memory Expansion
CPU Type
Model/Chipset
16 or 32 MB (non-removable)
80 or 96 MB
1 socket
233MHz Intel Pentium w/MMX

Compaq 1592dmt windows 98 fresh install not using the hole screen?


Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the screen resolution to 1028X768.
If you cannot change the screen resolution and the graphics adapter is set to generic VGA then download the Windows 98 graphic driver for your model laptop from the Compaq/HP WEB site and change the screen resolution.
Use this link to download the drivers :-

Format HD fails on armada 1592DMT


The safe bet is to go into the bios and choose "load Bios defaults" then restart. If your HD fails on the format command, it is probably bad.

Can i restore a compaq armada 1952DMT without the disc?


Hi guy1121,

since this type of laptop is a very old one you should think about installing a Linux-system on it.

In case you're still having a genuine and unused MS Windows 98-setup disc you could also try to use that one to install and use your laptop with. In that case you should check before whether HP (they bought Compaq some years ago) is still providing drivers for the laptop and for its use with Windows 98 (which is not very likely).

Good luck and greetings from Germany,
