    If the compaq 1700t & compaq 1245 have the SAME operating system[o.s] windows me, windows 98 the chances are VERY GOOD. If the 1700t has win_xp & 1245 has NOT( simply because I don't recall windows_xp installed in compaq 1245 systems), then, maybe no.( BUT where there is a will, there is a way!!)
    2nd- The CD in the 1245 must be RW'able in order to take out the VITAL information from the 1700t hard drive to save it to the cd rom drive.It should be DVD because then you can save gigabyts of info instead of megabyts

Can I use a compaq persario without a mouse? I am not sure if this is the right model. It just says compaq persario and has windows vista. the mouse died.

If you computer is a desktop meaning it has a computer tower and a separate monitor on it its called a desktop computer and you really need a mouse for it, but if its a laptop/notebook those that are slim and without any tower for it you can use it without any mouse since it has a touch pad that you can use as a replacement for your mouse.
