just try with fixing the hard drive connection properly and in bios also check how much capacity motherboard can support .according to your specification it will not support the higher capacity hard disk .make sure you installing the new hardidsk as same capacity of your older hard drive.
Go to Control Panel - Display - Settings and change the screen resolution to 1028X768.
If you cannot change the screen resolution and the graphics adapter is set to generic VGA then download the Windows 98 graphic driver for your model laptop from the Compaq/HP WEB site and change the screen resolution. Use this link to download the drivers :- http://h18000.www1.hp.com/cpq-country/cpq_support.html
since this type of laptop is a very old one you should think about installing a Linux-system on it.
In case you're still having a genuine and unused MS Windows 98-setup disc you could also try to use that one to install and use your laptop with. In that case you should check before whether HP (they bought Compaq some years ago) is still providing drivers for the laptop and for its use with Windows 98 (which is not very likely).
