You can't transfer the operating system. You have to reinstall it on the new hard drive. Most of the time the disks that come with a computer are just restore disks. Without the restore partition that comes on the hard drive that came with the computer, those disks are usually useless. Or if you want, you can keep both hard drives, and just setup the jumper settings on the hard drives so that the old hard drive is the primary, and the new one is the secondary. Then you will still have the operating system and you will use the new hard drive for storage.

Can this be hooked up to dial up?


Hi eegnor...
Yes, this can be used with dial up, if you have a modem card installed into the computer, if not, then you can install one very easy and have it hook up to dial-up.

Opertaing system not found


Your hard drive may be faulty, this is why the Windows operating system not found.
Go into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is detected, if not reseat the hard drive and boot up again.
If the Windows operating system not found then most likely the hard drive is faulty and to get the Notebook working again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive plus the Compaq Presario 1692 device drivers and your programs.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEBsupport/download page. Make sure
you select your model laptop and the Windowsdrivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download thedrivers: -

I am experiencing screen tremble. I added a new monitor and the same condition exists. I own a Compaq Presario SR1620NX. I also relocated the the tower to another location and the problen still exists. Do...


You already did the troubleshooting. You ruled out the monitor. You ruled out interference. I would say a faulty onboard VGA connection. I would go to a computer store without a restocking fee and buy a cheap PCI Express video card. Install card and load the new drivers and see if this solves the problem.
