All USB sockets support that, it's in the standard. But for ease of use it will be better to use a hub. But because it's such an old laptop it will surely be an 1.1 type, and the speed will be very slow.

For completely reformat the drive you need any operating system CD.
Like windows xp,windows vista windows 7 etc.
Then boot from cd and when you when partition manager show just delete all the drive and reallocate the space for new drive part.
Be sure you need to install new os to get working the computer and also Be sure that YOUR ALL DATA WILL BE DELETED.

Need Instructions on this...

In order to upgrade to XP with a fresh install, you will need to purchase an XP disc, then it's simple. Upon start up you need to go to the boot menu or set the cd drive to boot before the hard drive in the bios. Then insert the disc and follow the directions. At one point, you will need to delete the existing operating system in order to install the new. Once this is done, then you will need to format the drive using the full NTFS format, not the quick format. Then it's all down hill, just follow the direction. After the install, you will need to go to Compaq's support site and download any drivers needed. You can find the needed drivers in the device manager. I realize you would like to get around the XP purchase, but unfortunately, there's no way around it.

I want to delete everything and start over!

you'll need to go to SAFE mode, or boot from the install disk, which ever is most accessible.

How to perform a clean install on the old laptop

Rather then loading NT, I would just load XP.
Xp actually is, NT 5.+

It will run on that laptop with out any problems.
I would suggest, however, that you have at least 512MB of RAM (more is better)
When you boot to the XP disk, you will have options on what to do.
One of the options is to delete the existing partition. If you have removed any data you want to save, delete the partition, and then continue with creating a partition, formatting, and loading (they pretty much walk you through the steps on the install).

Note to the above....when you delete the existing partition, any data that is on the computer is gone. So make sure that you have looked it over before doing that.

You will also need to make note of onboard devices beforehand so that you do know your onboard devices (sound, video, NIC etc) and you can make sure to have those drivers inhand before you start. XP has a number of them built in, but some, you will have to go to the HP/Compaq site to download.

If you need any additional information, you can find me here..

No AM!


A possibility is that the antenna cable/plug is shorted. You can try verifying this with a continuity tester or simply unplug the antenna and stick a piece of insulated wire with the tip/end stripped into the antenna. Try the AM with the wire as the antenna. Just be carefully not go that far as the wire may reach the PCB/electronics.

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.

Cybershot F505 with Windows NT?

USB is not available with NT4.0 It will be available with Windows2000 however. I'm running NT on both my workstation and laptop and am buying the F505 myself as soon as I find a dealer that stocks them.
