Hmm Well I cant seem to find your computer model anywhere on the Internet.... but assuming its a basic compaq Computer All you would need to do is buy the correct type of Hard Drive (Ide, sata) open the computer up with the power unplugged and static protection..... now some computers have multiple Hard Drive bays and some only have one so you will need to install your new HD into a bay assuming your replacing your current HD you would remove the old HD and install this one in its spot dont forget to Check the jumper setting on the Hard drive to either match the drive your replacing or as a Master in a single HD setup also plug in a power source and the data cable into your new drive or it wont work.... it should be that easy almost all new computers will automatically configure it in the cmos for you.... if its a replacement for your main HD then it will need You to install an Operating System on it before you can use it.

It appears that the hard disk drive is not being seen in the Bios. Ensure that both the power and data cables are connected to the drive and the controller. try booting again.

SOURCE: compaq presario 2200 is very slow

If you are running the Compaq presario 2200, you can only have 80megs of RAM. I would suggest a new computer. What windows version are you running?

SOURCE: WHATS THE HARD DRIVE LIMIT OF A COMPAQ PRESARIO SR1315CL

The motherboard of your computer has two IDE and two SATA connections.
There is no upper limit of the drive size (at least nothing you have to worry about if you have WInXP, Vista or Linux installed)

Attention!!! - I heard from many people that HP (Compaq) has disabled the SATA connectors on your motherboard (ASUS A7V8X-LA)!!!
If you want to be on the safe side (and I would definitely recommend that) go and get an IDE drive. There are many good drives around with 500GB of storage.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Take a USB Flash Drive or CD and download only the Ethernet Controller Driver for the Compaq. Install the driver to the Compq, connect it to the net and download the package directly to the Compaq.

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.

Added a new hard drive to my desktop compaq presario sr1620nx and trying to install my operating system and its says no operating system found or corrupt partition and when i hit r to recover its brings me...


You can't transfer the operating system. You have to reinstall it on the new hard drive. Most of the time the disks that come with a computer are just restore disks. Without the restore partition that comes on the hard drive that came with the computer, those disks are usually useless. Or if you want, you can keep both hard drives, and just setup the jumper settings on the hard drives so that the old hard drive is the primary, and the new one is the secondary. Then you will still have the operating system and you will use the new hard drive for storage.

How to upgrade a new compaq presario SR2150NX?


Add more RAM, 512MB ram will slow your computer down because when you run out of ram the computer uses the hard drive as vitrual ram. I have 4GB in my Vista machine and it is faster than XP.

Another suggestion is to turn off the hard drives indexing. Right click on your "C" drive and unhook the "index this drive for faster searching" box.
