Compaq 1590 BIOS?
While I was out of town my fathers laptop broke down and went into safe mode, now my dads friend thought it would be best if they formatted the computer and reinstalled windows 98. However this did not work for them. Now I have tried everything I can think of, many kinds of boot disks but the cd drive will not work. On a older compaq like this one I believe the BIOS is stored on the hard drive which they must have deleted when they formatted the machine.
Now Im not to sure where to go from here, I need a BIOS I suppose but on the compaq site all I can find is an upgrade package not a full package, any help is appreciated!
So to sum it up basically I believe I need the BIOS In order to run the CD Rom and help is appreciated,
