    Yes the software is compatible with windows 98. The problem is the software is only partially installed. It won't finish because the get the Bartshel error even if I ignore it, it won't finish installing.

I first ask you, have you tried contacting their customer service? No answer from them and that's why you are here? I could not find any help on the software itself so I did some research for you on PeoplePc. In fact the more I looked, the more negative my results where. There are many, many complaints on the net about this company. There are some "good" comments made but they were 5-7 years ago and very few at best. The more recent comments are not very encouraging and I feel I need to caution you before you proceed. Have you entered into any contract with this service? If so you may find it extremely difficult canceling your contract with them. They seem to be unreachable in this aspect. There are complaint after complaint posted about this company in regards to this. If you are sure you wish to continue, then try this: Completely un-install the software. Use the windows un-install feature in the control panel. If you are not sure we will help walk you through it. Then re-install the software again. Do this in "safe mode". If it still does not work, then you may have gotten a bad CD from them. Another one of the complaints I found. My final advice to you is to consider another software program and service.

Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?

I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

Compaq Presario 5102US downloading Windows 98

If U already have 98 on the pc, R U trying to have dual boot, recover, or reload 98 instead of 98ME?
The disk U R using is a recovery disk and U will still need the 98 cd to reload. The disk is for repairing or reloading the 98 system and I would suggest that U learn how to use the command structure first before attempting a system repair.
Please explain what the problem is and what U want the system to do. We R very happy to help U get to where U want to go.
