Pleas ensure that you are using the correct product key for your system. Look on the bottom of the laptop for a sticker with your product key on it. If the sticker is there, then enter the key on that into your system.

If there is no sticker and you cannot find a 25-digit key with your computer's documentation, you will not be able to activate Windows. Consider trying to find an alternate copy of the Operating System, or if your finances allow, replacing the machine with something more recent.

How do i install windows vista off of my compaq resario 1692 laptop that has windows 98


How do you install Windows 7 on your Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, that currently has Windows 98 on it? (Win98SE?)

I would NOT.

Reasoning?

Primer:
Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the Operating System, to communicate with a device.

Windows 98, Windows XP, and Windows 7, are some examples of an O/S. (Operating System)

The optical drive (CD/DVD drive), audio, (Sound), graphics, and Ethernet, are some examples of a Device.

Let's go to HP Support, and look at the drivers available for the Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC, (HP bought out Compaq),

HP Support > Compaq Presario 1692 Notebook PC > Main Support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=95231&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

In the list click on the blue - Software and Driver Downloads.
(Don't believe we can use the Ampersand on here. That's why I used -
and )

Takes you to this page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=95231&

On this page you are asked to choose your Operating System.
In the rectangular box that has - Select - in it, go to the right of the box, and left-click on the blue down arrow.

In the drop down list you will see that Windows 7 is not listed.
This means there are no drivers for your laptop, and Windows 7.

There have been many people caitlynbrean, that have installed Windows 7 on their computer, only to find that it will not work.

Sorry it couldn't have been better news.

Regards,
joecoolvette

With your laptop there should have been a card or foldout guide that has the Windows certificate of authenticity which has your product key for Windows and on the bottom of your laptop, there is the product key for windows. that is the number it is asking for, put caps lock on when entering it just to make sure and this will validate your copy of windows.

If you have trouble activating your Windows using the Internet, then you need to activate Windows using the telephone method.
Follow the Activating process and select by telephone and enter your country and the screen instructions will give you the phone number to ring.

25-character product key of Microsoft office home and student 2007


Just to add to Antioch's comment you will be asked by Microsoft to fax through to them confirmation of purchase, and possibly a certificate of authenticity. They will then issue a further product key.

If it was a version supplied by Compaq, then contact them - presuming you registered your purchase they should be able to trace the record and replace your key.
