the drivers for anything that came with it from the Compaq website which I think is now HP since they merged. Search for the Model # in google and you should get to the correct site.
If you reformat the drive using the regular format you will also lose access to the bIOS. You should also be able to download files to a floppy that will allow you to access the BIOS / SETUP files again.
I have missplaced my quick restore CD for my Compaq Presario 7598. I spoke with technical support and they no longer supply the CD. Does any have this CD and want to get rid of it or does anyone know a awy around my problem. I installed XP and uninstalled it and now I am having problems with some Windows 98 drivers. Any help is appreciated.
