Hi all, I'm trying to install a cable card for internet access in my Compaq Presario 1210 Laptop (Pentium 150 MHz, 64 Mb Ram, etc). So far I have tried several ones but without success. The laptop won't detect the card being inserted but it does detect it being pulled out (beeps). I've done a fresh install of Win 98 SE. Nothing else has been added except the drivers for network adapters. The result with the card remained the same. I was told that the problem maybe can be with the manufacturers. In a forum a man says: “I used to have a 3com card (Ethernet) in this slot and it worked perfectly.” Can you tell me if it is true that the 3com card is the best one for my old Compaq Presario? In the internet I can find different models but which one is the right one? Thanks, Ugis Stamers in Latvia

When you purchased the network-adapter, did it include a CD-ROM with device-drivers for Windows 98? Did you install those drivers?

Many "new" network-adapters include software that *ONLY* supports newer versions of Windows (XP/Vista/7) and no longer include support for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Look on eBay for another 3COM adapter, since that adapter worked for you.

HI, I have a very old compaq cmputer{15 yrs} and cannot download any flash adobe or WI-FIRE. Not very good at piecing things together. Thanks


Educated guess:

That would put the machine at around 1996. Maybe running Windows 95 or 98 on some very old hardware (Pentium 200 MHz MAX).

Even if you could download flash there would not be a version available for your OS anymore.

Sorry, but At 15 years old my best suggestion would be to retire the box and replace it. There is really nothing meaningful you can do with it in today's environment.

The example box below is circa 1995.
