SOURCE: Compaq Desktop won't boot up.

hi maj
firstly you need to hear if there is any kind of noise made by your Hard disk ( this is to check if it has been physically damage)

two option:

1.then to check if it has some bad sector, you need to remove to hard disk and use it as an external harddisk or a secondary hardisk in another computer, there you can go in Accessories in your start menu and try for disk check

2. you will need a bootable cd say 98se, then boot with cdrom support,then you can run chkdsk command on your command prompt that is commonly C:\

both the options will was you if your harddisk is having bad sector or not

happy computing

If you haven't changed the motherboard from the time you bought it, then there must four onboard sata connectors on the motherboard, refer below picture; c24ab14.jpg

If you haven't installed four sata drives, then there must be at least 3, you can connect the new hard drive on any port, no matter Master or Slave, Primary or Secondary, it'll automatically set it for you. You also no need to worry about the cable, both the ends are same, it works on any direction; 80e9306.jpg

Same thing with the power cable, you can join it on any power cable.. daeb671.jpg

I hope this helps, if you have problem with this or if in case your motherboard is different, please let me know;
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Compaq Presario SR2010NX power supply

if it is your power suply that is bad its very easy. all you have to do is get a replacment oem powersuply i would go with this one,. you then will want to make sure the computer is powered down. once you get it powered down i would strongly suggest wearing a anti static strap can buy at any computer repair store. you then want to look at end of connectors and will be labeled. u then want to label the ends as you unplug them. all you have to do is label the new ones. once you get old power supplies cables labeled. you can unhook the four mounting screws on the back that hold power suply to case. then all you have to do is hook up new power surly as you labeled old one and can just match up the plugs. then all you have to do is mount to computer. once you mount it go ahead and power up.

Can i upgrade a ide and sata drive on my compaq presario sr2010nx pc?

yes you can. i suggest using a program called acronius true image. add the new hard drive. be sure to turn on the sata or ide option in the setup bios. then use the true image software to clone your operating systems to your new hard drive. your source drive will be the original drive, and the destination drive will be your new drive. once the operation is complete , youll need to enter setup again and suggest that the new drive be your first boot device. just follow the on screen directions to complete the new setup. NOW... you can keep your old drive for a backup drive , or... you can format that drive and use it for a secondary storage drive. the hard drive can be accessed by my computer then open the drive and simply drag and drop or choose the drive from a save file drop down selection location popup window. this will allow you to save important files that can be accessed at anytime if your system main drive were to ever fail. another option you have is to place your old hard drive in a external hard drive enclosure that can be purchased via ebay and will allow you a large storage device that is mobile and hold mass data unlike a flash drive. this can be a very valuable tool and wont cost more than 20.00 here is a link for an ide hard drive enclosure with free shipping. if you need a sata enclosure, change the search results to (3.5 sata hard drive enclosure) the choose buy it now and choose PRICE+shippind:LOWEST FIRST. hope this was helpfull.

My Compaq Presario would not boot. I happened to lose the recovery disk (I put it away in case something like this would happen, I end up losing it anyway...smh). I have tried everything, from USb booting...

Of course. You can use some live linux distro (Ubuntu in example) or Hiren's Boot CD (one of the best tools, download here: )

Compaq Desktop won't boot up.

Do you have your Vista installation disc? If so, you can boot from that and then run the Windows RE troubleshooter, which should be able to test your hard drive and maybe even try to repair it.
