You have to check the physical dimensions first, as most of the spares are tailor made for a particular model and cannot be used for other models. The easier way to transfer data would be to connect a data cable or network cable, create a network between both the PCs and transfer the data.

Can I install the hard drive of my old hp 8510p in my hp presario cq 42? will it run the old windows vista? My new hp presario cq 42 is running the new windows 7?


If the hard drive is compatible with your presario cq 41 then it will work. The operating system does not matter if you're switching hard drives.

If you want to update the operating system on the old hard drive, you will need to have the software for Windows 7.

Hp compaq , when switching my computer on a page will come on with Message of check for viruses on your computer , remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers, check your hard drive...


Why not download a new book?

If you were to log on to the hp.com web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, Driver downloads and Installation Instructions as required.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

I hope this helps.

Problem with hp compaq nc8430 no see my hard drive Went I reinstall windown xp my hard drive it not present


Hi there,

Go into the BIOS setup (press f10 during boot process), then SYSTEM CONFIGURATION and disable SATA NATIVE SUPPORT. Try installing XP again and it should see your hard drive.

(If it will work then please vote for me).

Thanks

Need to switch out hard drive


Go to Youtube and look for your type of computer there, and include the words hard drive in the description. There will be several videos showing how to do it, even if your specific model isn't shown. It really is easy to do, once you've seen it done

Hard drive failure compaq presario 2200


If the bios is showing no ide, means that your ide hard drive is not being detected.
This can be caused by some motherboard failure, some bad cable connection or caddie connection or bad hard drive.
