Wiring diagram


You haven't mentioned whether you are trying to repair it or just reformat and install OS etc. Schematics are not available or even if they are, repairs are not worth the effort as you'll no longer find parts for it.

However you can still get drivers and updates for it.

I've searched a bit and found the HP care website where you can download drivers, firmware and manuals.

While you may disagree, I don't think it would be worthwhile to invest any time& money in looking for processors, memory etc as it is now a very old system and practically as powerful as a mobile phone or even less.

How can you replace the back usb port on a HP Pavilion 8766c Desktop PC


If it is built onto the motherboard you cant replace it. You can just buy a USB HUB if you need to be able to allow for more usb ports. Much easier and cheaper route to go

Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

If your system came with Vista pre-installed it is likely there are no XP or eariler drivers available for it, in which case you will have to stick with Vista or Windows 7.

Big problem no windows 98 un-locking Key


if the windows xp isn't an upgrade from 98 then it will install on your computer over the 98 without problem, bearing in mind that all information on the disk will be lost once you format it with the disk, but if it's an upgrade disk you might have to check with your friends to see if they have the same version of 98, the other thing if the computer came with 98 installed the product key should be on the case on the back or the side is normal postioning for this altho some techs use to put in the inside of the case.
hope this helps.
