Dear Christinemc1,

Please note that 1200 Series Presario's generally have the hard drive under the Keyboard for which there is specific procedure to follow to reach there. If this was the answer you are looking for, please rate the support.

If not, then dont rate the request yet and keep on reading as I think that you are interested in replacing the new harddrive yourself.

please let me know and i will guide you through the replacement process.

Glad to help you.

Regards,
Techno-Geek.

Hi,

From looking online it appears that the palm rest/touchpad will flip up to reveal the hard drive bay. You probably need to remove some screws from the bottom front end.

Hope that helps :)

You should be able to put in almost any laptop SATA hard drive in the machine. Depending on your OS, you may have to partition the drive in order to make best use of the larger types.

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot


Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

Use the above link , and chat online with a customer service rep, give them your compaq model information along with the correct operating system and they can send you one to your home. Hope this helps. Otherwise just format the hard drive and reinstall the operating system again, just make sure you have a good copy of windows xp or vista before you format the hard drive.

Compaq has a website with downloadable drivers for all their computers. Download the drivers, burn to CD and install. Trick is, one model could have different components inside, so they list several different drivers, and not all drivers work with all computers. So unless you know what components are inside your computer, you need all the drivers and just try them until you get the right one.

Compaq presario v3000 laptop..doesnt recongize the hard drive


I beleive that you are trying to install retail versions of XP which will not be able to detect the Hard Drive in the Notebook as it is a SATA drive and Windows XP will not be having the drivers for SATA Hard Drives by default.
In this situation, I recommend you to check and disable the SATA Native support  option available in the BIOS.
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab using the Arrow keys and select the option as Disabled next to SATA Native Support.
Press the F10 key again to save the settings done and exit BIOS.
Now, you should be able to use the Windows XP disk and install Windows XP Operating System in your Notebook without any issues.
By disabling the SATA Native Feature, the Hard Drive of the Notebook will be detected as a IDE Drive because of which we will be able to install XP without any issues.

Donot Re-Enable this feature in the BIOS again as the Operating System may not boot. Let the option next to SATA Native Support be Disabled.
Hope this helps...
