Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

1 Answer

CD-ROM has not worked.

I really need to know whether this old model, Compaq 800/Pentium 4/CPU 2.0 GHz, 704 MB of RAM, can use DVD-ROM? I just want to change it from the old CD-ROM which has not been working anymore. Please give me an answer and advice.

It can use a DVD-Rom just make sure that the door is the same size as your old cd-rom so it will fit into the side of your laptop and also make sure that you remove the bracket from the back of the old cd-rom and reattach it to the back of the DVD-rom you want to put in your laptop so that way you can screw it into place

Can Windows 7 be installed on X05? I get ACPI incompatible BIOS and have updated to last known one. Please help!


The only issue i can see is if your your ram has not been updated since leaving the factory, you will notice from the tables W7 requires a min of 1GIG and your machine leaves the factory with 256mb(dependant on country possible) so check your ram. I run windows 7 on 2GB and its great, your machine will take 2GB. The Samsung X05 was released 2004 and the NVIDIA Geforce 4 should be fine. i would point out drivers and compatability but windows 7 so far is really good but driver support is crucial
hope this helps

Here is the requirements for Windows 7
Windows 7 minimum specs
  • 1GHz CPU
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 16GB of drive space
  • DirectX 9-capable graphics card or integrated chip (true of most releases 2002 and after)
