    My Compaq Presario 1070 Notebook laptop has Windows 95 OS. When I try to use it, the laptop loads to the Compaq splashscreen and gives me 2 messages; "RTC Lost Power- Replace Battery and run setup" and "System board failure." I've restored my BIOS Settings to the factory defaults and booted itn with a boot disk in the Floppy Drive. The computer gives a message that says "Starting Windows 95." Windows Installer starts but it gives me a message "Cannot install Windows 95 on your computer. It may not have a hard disc or your hard disc isn't working properly." I have also tried to get a different boot disc and install Windows 98 but it says "cannot run in DOS mode." Any Ideas?
