Make sure that you put the h/d in all the way so that it is seated firm if thats not it you will have to use a small jumper on the 2 pins that do not go into the caddy adaptor try the out side one first this puts in slave mode the next one puts it in cable select mode

Wich message that show "there is no hard disk drives"

if in win XP
when the setup is loading driver it's will ask for SATA/RAID driver
you must press F6 then insert your SATA driver with USB floppy drive
or install XP with something like unattended installer with SATA driver included

or if it's shown in BIOS
probably your harddrive is broken
and you must replace it
or claim your warranty

note: ask your OEM

I have evo n610c laptop but when ever i turn on the laptop itgives a messege that non disk system or disk error with some sort of noice coming from hard drive


This error message could be caused by the laptop not detecting the hard drive.
Check the BIOS to see if it detects the hard disk
If not the hard disk may be faulty or needs reseating. If the hard disk is faulty it needs to be replaced and Windows installed on the new hard disk.
A virus program may have infected the computer and removed or changed some system files - in this case Windows needs to be repaired OR Windows re-installed - this is the best option.

PXE - E63 error


This error is related to the hard drive.
It could be a faulty connection on the hard drive - try re-seating the hard drive.
The hard drive may be faulty - go into the BIOS and see if the BIOS detects the hard drive.
If the BIOS cannot detect the hard drive then the hard drive may be faulty ot the laptop's hard disk controller could be faulty.
To determine if the hard drive is faulty, remove the hard drive and connect it into an USB hard drive adapter and plug this adapter into a working compute's USB port. If this computer cannot see this hard drive as an external hard drive then this hard drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.
When the new hard drive is installed in the Compaq laptop, insert your Windows installation CD and install Windows, plus the Compaq's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.

Problem loading os on compaq evo n610c


Make sure you start by deleting the old partition, and formatting C:. If it still locks up after that, then your hard drive is bad.

Doesn't boot


If the bios does not reconise the hard drive then you will need a disk utility at this point. some laptops only accept a max of 120gigs for a reason if your trying to put a larger drive in a old system you need the latest bios drivers for one and use a disk utility.

Compaq evo n1020v not able to boot, no displal.


You have a sick laptop, could be simply a faulty power adapter to a faulty motherboard. The Evo is old and probably not worth fixing, better to put your money towards a new laptop.
There is a way to retrieve data from your hard drive provided it is not faulty.
Remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Insert the adapter into a working computer's USB port and the computer will see this as an external hard drive. You can then open the folders and view your files. Copy the various folders and files you require to a USB memory stick and/or burn these to a CD etc.
It pays to backup your data regurarly because if the hard disk fails and this can happen unexpectedly, you will lose your data.
If the hard drive is faulty, there are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drivers, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

Turn it all the off. Then pull the hard drive out and put it back in again. Now, put your system disk (Win XP?) into the drive and turn the laptop on. It should do something else now. I have had this happen on several laptops I have rebuilt and it takes patience to get them started sometimes.... I have managed to load XP onto all of them eventually!

Hope this helps
