Compaq pressario 14XL250

Hi,

this model came with windows 98. I have upgraded to windows ME with a view to using broadband AOL. I have loaded the router driver and AOL 9.0 on to the laptop but the ethernet port on this model does not appear to be connecting with the router. Any advice much appreciated.

Ger.

Researching your specific machine the ethernet network adapter had at least 5 versions of driver for Windows 98. Only Windows ME driver listed is also the latest version of the Windows 98 drivers. If your drivers were not up to date it is quite possible that your ethernet NIC may need the driver update at this link Presario Notebooks Conexant Combo - Modem/NIC Driver for Windows ME

All your machine's Windows ME drivers and software are listed here. In case you find any other drivers that need to be updated.

I have a compaq presario 7470 PC which currently has windows 98, Iwant to know how can i update it with windows 7 and how muche it'll cost?


Generally the specs for Windows XP machines are good enough for upgrading to Windows 7 without too much cost.

But, Windows 98 was a bit further back in the history of Windows.

You can go to Microsoft.com and use an upgrade advisor to see if Windows 7 will work on your machine.

And, they'll tell you the cost.

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.

Claification to my problem with compaq pressario


Hi. Azrul here. Here is 2 of my best solution for your problem:

1. Online support from your PC's manufacturer. Restart your PC using a Windows XP/Vista CD and download all the related drivers for your PC online (you will need your compaq presario model number for this)

2. There is also an option to purchase the restore disc online. Depending on the age of the PC that you purchased, just google for "Compaq" or "Hewlett-Packar"and get the restore disk from there.
