    I have a compaq presario 1650 laptop. It currently has a different language version of W98 installed. I want to format and reinstall the english version. The person I got the laptop from no longer has the compaq installation disk. Is it possible to format the harddrive and reinstall with the drivers that are located on compaq's site?

    As long as all the drivers are there, sure.

    I've redone plenty of laptop machines. Just make sure the site has drivers for all the parts first, and get them all downloaded before you start.
