Question about PC Laptops
I purchased a new laptop compaq presario c700. When I tried to install os it is booting from cd but it is not recognising harddisk. I checked in BIOS but I didn't find the option where to find harddisk. So please provivide the solution web cam 101 no driver found
The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

Well to be honest that laptop i see has been out for a while so not sure ho wnew it is...
But if you are doing a Install of the OS and it is not going, then it could be a problem with the actual hard drive so i can say, call Hp and see if it still under warranty if it is new and have them have a go at it, if it is not under warranty then it could be the hard drive, OS install will go through if all is well, Hardware boots up first in initial computer startup.
So if it is stating that it cannot find one, then unfortunately there is only that much you can do..
In bios the only thing you may see is boot sequence, and if you see that and enter into it then you should see something like..
HDD hard drive CD/DVD drive Network Adapter
then whatever else is there to boot...
So call HP and try to see about that...
