  1. I am new here, so redirect me if necessary. My problem is that I have received an old Compaq laptop and I want to get it up and running, but don't know where to start. It boots to "system or non-system disk error." There is no floppy in the drive. It has a 3.5" floppy drive, no cd. HELP!!! :confused:
