HI,

ON the 5000 series there are two possibly three ide drives on the machine. Once you have the front bezel off, and the remove the side panel, you will find near the top of the machine the ide cdrom drive, and possible another cdrom or tape backup ide drive. Below those one or two drives is your hard drive (ide). To remove them, you will need to unplug the power cable, which is the white plastic plug with the multiple color wires going into it. Then remove the grey wide cable which is your ide cable. Do not remove the other end of the cable from the motherboard. Remove which every ide drive you want to replace and install the new one, and be sure to hook up the ide cable and power supply back into the same positions as before.

Thanks

Mark

Through looking up this serial number, I am finding that it comes back to a "HP 6x IDE CD-Rom Drive". Is this what you were looking for?

Compaq presario sr1800nx won't turn on


Check the jumper settings on the DVDRW. Depending on IDE location, you need to set the jumpers accordingly. If you have the main system hard drive on the same IDE channel as the DVDRW, set the jumpers on the DVDRW to slave, if that don't work, set them to Cable Select. I'm assuming it's an IDE drive and not SATA.

40GB WD protege IDE WD400EB hard drive went down. I want to replace it with faster and larger drive. Please advise.


Hi there
I think you can put up to 200BG IDE hard drive in that desktop, i recommend seagate hard drives as they come with a 5 year guarantee and can run at 7500rpm.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

Replace CD-Rom Drive


solution: open front blue magnetic case door, look on either side of the power button, there are finger holes in the other blue cover.
lift out from bottom to top. this cover comes off, not the whole
case. inside find tabs next to cd drive, squeeze and pull out. note: the side sliders were they come out, they will come off the
cd drive when removed. it is easier to replace the top drive by removing the bottom drive, put in the top half way, then put bottom back in half way and slide them in together.

voice of experience. hope this helps
