Hi, A friend of mine purchased a used Compaq Deskpro EN from his company. They erased the hard drive, so I loaded Windows 98 SE, but I need the audio and video drivers. The HP/Compaq website shows about 2 dozen systems with this name, but it doesn't tell me which one I have. This one says it is an 850 Mhz x86 Family 6 Model 8 Stepping 6. What drivers do I need for this computer? Thanks, Tony

do a maintenance on the PC. scan disk, fragmentation, use CCleaner to fix any of the registry error.
you may have to defreg few time to compress the hard drive. you should have minimum of 25% of the hard drive free. the ore the better.
the problem with using a hard drive that has a preexisting installation of windows is that you may run into architecture problems (different CPUs can cause this), or hard drive controller problems. Your best bet is to install XP again from the install disk, and call windows; from my experience they have just given me a new installation key.
after that search for

Last time this happened to me, I had to reformat and reinstall windows. I tried all those modes, and I even tried the windows repair. None of that worked, I just did a complete new install. All of the data will be lost, if you do this.
My advice, if you need some of the data on that hard drive, you need to hook the drive up to another computer and backup what you need.
Or buy another hard drive, install windows on the new drive. Now slave the old and backup the data.
