    I have a Compaq Presario 1260 laptop with Win98 and a 4gb Fujitsu IDE hard drive. I need to replace the hard drive. Can anyone tell me what I need to look for in my new hard drive to make sure that it is compatible with my computer (ie Capacity, Physical Size, interface, etc)?

    If you are running win98 you shouldn't have a problem with any size hard drive, other than that you will just need to make sure you get a IDE interface HD. For Physical size generall you will just have a 3 1/2 drive that should fit. However sometime Compaq uses 5 1/4 drives for there newer ones. Just take a look inside the case for the physical size.
