    Hello There,

    I tried HP website, and installed some realted drivers, but didn't work.

    the main problem is i don't know how can i check notebook physically which network driver to install.

    when i go to Device manager it shows "1394 network adaptor" under network devices. i couldn't find drivers for 1394 net adaptor over the net :(

    another thing i noticed that my notebook takes Win Vista, however i have installed XP. do u think this could be the problem.

    plz help.

Ur yellow question marks mean ur device is detected but drivers are not installed or disabled.
if you yourself didnt disable them windows disabled them for compatability issues.

    you can install any os wont make any difference but I do find that vista is far too slow for me and finding certain software can be a nightmare.At the moment im using xp pro.

    what you really need to do is reformat your partition and install fresh copy of xp because its usually good for having most drivers.

    it will install a generic audio driver which is'll find your modem but wont install drivers ;but you can install generic drivers for modem ok.(ethernet and dial up)

    if you have wireless it wont detect or install any drivers so you can install wlan driver then sys will detect wireless and be searching before installation complete(that quick)

    you need to install o2micro cardbus contoller for pcmcia and card readers.

    go to this site

    and type in nc4000.ur pc uses the same drivers.for ur vga use igp radeon .on the site there are 2 drivers for vga(display) if not sure download them both but the second one down in list is the one for u.

    when u download them they are not installed so remember which folder you save them to.

    if u want to use your plug n play modem go into device manager and disable current modem/network adapters.(not delete)

    before you install software for p+p modem.

    usb controllers will already be installed with can use the audio drivers off site but I find generic ac97 ok.

    have any probs let me know.



Thanks a lot... my email id is

How do i go about formatting my hp laptop using windows7 ultimate on a 2g ram

Please don't forget to backup all your data before formatting
You can format the laptop form the Windows CD, or other 3rd party utility like OnTrackDiskManager (DM)
After inserting CD/DVD, and boot from it, and the hard disk partitions appear to choose one to install windows on it, you can choose a partition and click: ( advanced option in the box below) and choose (format), and do so for etch partition
Please tell us your results
Good Luck

Good night, i formated the hdd of my compaq armada 1500c, next i install win xp sp2, every time that the computer boot, i see a mesage that says system date and time not set. how can i restore the bios...

There is not a bios partition, as the bios is a firmware on the mother board. You need to press the key specified early during boot up, before the system seeks the hd for load.

I have an old laptop that partition and hd have been reformatted. I've tried using boot disk but keep getting the message that says, ''save to disk partition not found. So, can't get win98se to load as...

Haven't used win98 for a while so bear with me and this uses DOS COMMANDS too.
If useing restore cd/floppy you have to use a utility from compaq that creates two partitions on hard-drive.
They may have a restore floppy if you need it too.
One for "recovery files" and one for "OS Boot"
AHH, the memories, I still have my 95/98/ME Laptops up and running for older stuff. HP n CQ too.
Restore CD should do it all though.
If no restore CD - have Win98 CD?
if Harddrive partitioned and formated - Just do 1
1. boot from Win98 CD.
Partition n Format
2. Choose boot to DOS (puts u in virtual drive A)
3. Type drive letter of CD ( C: D: or E: )
4. Type CD Win98
5. Type Fdisk ( to partion drive)
reboot n do 1 + 2
6. Type format C: ( I do this to ckeck drive for errors)
JUST Boot from CD and follow install instructions.
1 to 6 for if you have problem with Win98 CD setting up Harddrive.

The partitioning of a hard drive into more than one part, can only be done during the set up process of the operating system install. The partitioning section is before the format, and the format only applies to the partition that the operating system is to be installed in. After the install, then you go into my computer and format the other partition.

Unable to boot, I can't installed WIN98


NTLDR is NT Loader which indicates that the hard disk originally contains an NT OS such as Windows XP. The laptop not reading the installer is possibly a CD ROM or CD disc problem. Most (but not all) NT OS would be using an NTFS type of HD format. Windows 98SE would only read and install on a FAT(32).

What perhaps you can do is to remove the HD from the laptop and using an external 2.5 interface to USB connect it to a 2nd PC and re-partition that HD as well as format it to FAT32. You can also make that HD bootable (do a Google) and copy the entire CD installer of Windows 98SE to a folder inside that HD.

Once back to the laptop, it should boot to a C: prompt, go to the folder where the Win98SE installation/setup files are located and run setup.exe.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Compaq Armada M700 - failure to boot from CD

Hello Blessie,
This is Romeet,i shall try and help you with this problem. Before formatting for a new installation of w2k, did you delete your partitions and create a new partition or did you just overwrite the old installation partition?Besides i hope you did a backup of your data before any of above processes in the event you might need it later on? Please let me know about the partitioning and i shall try and help further accordingly as most likely it looks like a Disk Partitioning Misconfiguration / Problem

Boot up with no operating system

When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.
