I have an old Compaq Presario 1200 Laptop that ran Windows 98. I thought I’d upgrade it to Windows XP. None of the drivers work Video Graph card I have been told there are no update. How do I format Windows XP so I can install Windows 98

Insert the winxp installation disk into the cd drive and restart your system.... Boot from the disk and follow the on-screen instructions... As it starts formating remove the disk so that the WinXP installation files aren't copied to your system... ow restart the system and boot up using the Win98 StartUp disk (floppy disk) and type in "d:" and then press enter.... Then type in "setup.exe" and press enter!!!
