If you have a windows 98 disk you can reinstall it. If it supports xp you can install it. It all depends on the system itself and if it meets the system requirements for xp or even newer operating system. Go to your cmos settings and see what you have, check for cpu, ram, and hdd size. Set your system to boot from the cd rom drive and install your operating system disk and install it. Good Luck.

What's the most current OS I can use to replace Windows 98 on a Compaq Presario 1277 laptop?


You might be able to find a stripped down version of XP or put Windows NT on it. Those are my best guesses. NT will let you use newer versions of some browsers as well. Mostly Explorer

Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

How do I get all my old info, pics, documents and all stuff saved from my old desk top computer compaq presario 5700n windows 98 second edition so i can put it on my lap top, my flash drive won't work on...


Take the hard drive out and get someone knowledgeable to put it in their system as a slave drive. Then plug your flash drive into their system and copy all the files to it. I'd say this is the fastest and easiest solution to the problem. You could always network it to another computer and transfer the files also.

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck

Compaq Presario 5102US downloading Windows 98


If U already have 98 on the pc, R U trying to have dual boot, recover, or reload 98 instead of 98ME?
The disk U R using is a recovery disk and U will still need the 98 cd to reload. The disk is for repairing or reloading the 98 system and I would suggest that U learn how to use the command structure first before attempting a system repair.
Please explain what the problem is and what U want the system to do. We R very happy to help U get to where U want to go.
