The answer is Yes.

Connect just the EIDE harddrive from the Compaq.
Make sure the correct jumper pins on the back of the harddrive, have a jumper cap on them to set them to Single;

OR,

The IDE harddrive model you have may Not use a jumper cap on any jumper pins, for some models of harddrives, to set the harddrive as Single.

Look up the harddrive jumper settings on the internet.
Start with the model number on the label of the harddrive.

Example; WD2500JB
Western Digital 250GB harddrive that is IDE. (EIDE)
Western Digital jumper settings for IDE (EIDE) harddrives,

You will need a SATA optical drive now.
BIOS Setup > Boot Options > Set the first boot device to CDROM.
Install Windows disk.

Use IDE harddrive, and IDE optical drive on the same flat ribbon IDE cable?
Can be done, but usually is a HEADACHE, and MAY not work.
BIOS looks to see what drives are connected. It looks for the drive with the Operating System on it. (Windows)

Now put a disk in the optical drive. Time has to be divided between the harddrive, and the optical drive.
IF it does work; when you are using the computer, and the optical drive you will know the real meaning of Slow.

Have a SATA optical drive?

Does this model have a SATA Cable coming from the power supply?


According to the manufacturer's web-site:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=390423

this computer dates from 2003.

So, you'll have to buy a Molex-to-SATA power-adapter,
and a EIDE-to-SATA data-adapter,
if you want to use a SATA device.

What battery does it use s6200cl compaq presario


Most motherboards use a lithium CR2032, CR2025 or similar. This is about the size of a quarter and in a holder on the motherboard. Turn off the AC plug and then ground yourself so you do not zap the PC. You could do this on a kitchen counter and touch the faucet before the PC. Or use a grounding strap. Remove the battery and replace with new. The BIOS will have to get its wits about it again, so be prepared for a couple of boot cycles. Start conservative default settings before venturing to more adventurous settings. Note if you have a separate video card or not. If so, select the setting to use the card not motherboard on boot. This is the only show stopper for a setting. Once you have it up and going again, resist the temptation to close it up before one last boot cycle shere you write settings on a piece of paper and tape it to the inside panel of the PC. Good Luck!
