All I can remember is that it had the word "flash" in it. In any event, now...

Hello, I offered to fix-up my sister's Presario 1245 laptop (Windows 98 installed), and discovered Compaq's odd D: drive partition, titled "System_Save", which in addition to stealing space from C:, seems to get copies of everything removed from the Recycle Bin. (I noticed this because emptying...

New Hard Drive for a Presario 4824 by PhoneMatt
Hey, Tom, Thanks for the reply. I find it odd, though, that the drive was pulled from an even older Presario 4712, where it worked fine. (I should have mentioned that it is partitioned into 5G partitions. Would that make a difference?) Setting it to cable select is no big deal, I've just always...
