Re: Twinhead laptop

The floppy version of Oak CD Rom Driver it is trying to install, will only work on certain types of CD drives (usually IDE or IDE-compliant SCSI internals). It is rare that it will work on an "external" CD Rom. Very unlikely.

However, if this is a good brand-name external CD drive like a "Backpack", you can make a floppy boot disk with their own proprietary driver (look on their website or old version sites). Usually the external CD drive manufacturer will provide either a driver to add to a MS boot floppy, or they will provide a specialized floppy image that you can use instead of the MS boot floppy.

How to install windows xp on a totally brand new hp mini laptop

Hi, you have to have an external drive / USB since HP minies does not have CD Drive, if u already have the cd installer of the XP operating system, just connect the USB / external drive to the computer then insert the cd installer, then follow the prompt on the screen on how to install the system, should be licensed installer with product key. If you have saved the installer in a flash drive, just insert the flash drive and install, no need for cd.

Thank you.

Iwould like to update this twinhead laptop P90 to a windows 2000 or newer and i would also like to know if i can hook up a portable DVD rom to it as well.

You can put XP on it if you want and yes you can connect a external DVD ROM to the USB port.Its hard to say if the DVD ROM will play well or not though.If the TWINHEAD as a onboard cd drive be sure to set it as your first boot device then the HDD.If it does'nt have a onboard cd drive set it to boot from your USB first then the HDD.Good luck.

Laptop wont open, screen is blank but scroll and caplocks are blinking

Basically your laptop is fine however this is no display

To find out use an external monitor and connect it to your laptop.


Plug the monitor power cord fro the monitor going to the power outlet
plug the other cord from the monitor going to the laptop video port


above is the video port from the monitor and you will plug it to laptop video port


Above is the laptop video port where you will plug the video cord from the monitor


Once the External monitor is connected to your laptop swqitch on your laptop if the display will appear on the external monitor after switching on the laptop. 100% the problem will the LCD of your laptop and you need to bring it on service center..

Thank you and be careful alright!

Need to install operating system on laptop with no cd rom or driv

I believe this model of laptop was designed for Windows 95, which can be installed using only floppy disks. That would be just about your only solution. I would not recommend trying to install XP or anything on it, due to the outdated hardware. If it has a PCMCIA Slot on it (most do) you can buy a USB adapter that goes in there. But, as I stated before, I would just install Windows 95 on it (or possibly 98SE) Good Luck!

Laptop hard drive

If you have reinstalled windows, on this hardrive using a different computer, it would not load into windows on the nortino 6770, because the windows now has the settings compatible with the other computer not this machine.
To get around this problem, you would have to reinstall windows, by placing the haddrive in the 6770 only. To do this , you can either copy the contents of the windows cd , to a flash drive or pen drive ,and then connect the same to the USB port of the laptop.
The other way , is connect an external USB cd drive and install the same.

Best of luck

Software purchase

Hello dazz_hammer,

You can put up to Windows XP. If do, I would suggest to add memory and bigger hard drive.

Or if the pc has Windows Product Key Tag, and what ever the operating system it indicates then you can re-install that operating system.

Hope this helps and good luck.
