By collins ·
I purchased a Compac Presario -1680 3 years ago. Speed -200. It has Windows 95.Will Windows 2000 work on this laptop. The laptop has 2.3 meg of storage. I loaded office 2000 last month but don't know what problem will occur if I upgrade to Windows 2000 OS.

I would keep WIN95, Upgrade to WIN98, or even Upgrade to Windows millenium. I would strongly recommend NOT TO Upgrade to Windows 2000.

Quite a lot of Software will not work on Windows NT, and that is exactly whar Windows 2000 is.

Be happy and not stressed out, leave Windows 2000 alone

As this is an old Compaq model there has been nothing released by Compaq stating that that exact model supports the use of Windows 2000 that I have seen. I honestly would advise to backup everything of importance if you do decide to upgrade the o/s.Also adding some memory would not hurt, the codes mb for same as follows :

128mb 401063-B21
64mb 401062-B21
32mb 401061-B21

Hope this is of some help,

Eoin.
