Most model Compaq have the hard drive mounted behind a plactic panel on the RH edge or LH edge of the laptop. There is a screw that locks the panel in place. After you remove this screw then slide the panel down to unlock it and then pull the hard drive out.

How do i remove my compaq presario 2200's hard drive?


The Compaq Presario line is one of the longest-running series of computers, originating in 1993 and remaining in production even after the purchase of Compaq by HP. Because of this, many Compaq Presario desktops have required that some of their parts be upgraded or replaced because of the wear that they have received over years of standard use. One of the more commonly replaced Presario desktop components is the hard drives, especially given how much hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif storage capacity has increased since the Compaq Presario line was introduced. Replacing a hard drive in a Compaq Presario desktop isn't difficult, and can usually be done in a matter of minutes even for users who aren't familiar with computer upgrades.
structions
  1. Step 1Remove the screws holding the left side panel of the computer on, then slide the panel back to remove it. Set both the panel and the screws aside so that you can put the panel back in place once the hard drive has been replaced.
  2. Step 2Unplug the ATA (wide, flat and usually gray) or SATA (thicker, thin and red) data cable and the power cable from the back of the hard drive that is currently in the Compaq Presario. Move the cables so that they will be out of the way, but make sure that they will still be easily accessible to you so that you can plug them into the new hard drive.

I think it is the same as HP. When you undo the cover just pull it right out by the small plastic. No screws holding the drive.

SATA 2.5 connectors different than current Presario R4000 laptop


It seems that your notebook does not have sata connection to Hard drive. Your harddrive is IDE connection. Sorry but you can't use SATA on this laptop.

Put your windows installation cd in the drive, then reboot. Press any key to boot from cd. Then select R to enter recovery console. Follow the prompts. Once in the recovery console, you should have a C:\ prompt. When there type "fixmbr" without the quotes. Once that finishes type "fixboot" and then let that finish, you'll probably have to type a "y" for yes stating that you want to do these options. Then finally type "chkdsk". This should solve your problem, if not let me know, you'll probably need to do a repair install.
