    Compaq Hard Drive

    Recently acquired Presario 4712; prior owner thought 2.5 Gig HD "fried". Diskscan says no
    defects,directory showed no files. Tried to use original "restore" files, but hangs up up @ 9% and won't go further. HD has two partitions.
    How about I try to re-format HD, install Win
    3.1, then upgrade to Win 95 to get away from Compaq peculiarities in their software,etc.?

    Any reason why this might not work and/or destroy the whole shebang? Thanks for help

    You may need to low-level format the drive using the program called Disk Manager. If you need help in doing that since this is a sensitive task give me an e-mail,
