Question about Compaq Presario CQ5320F PC Desktop
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.

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?

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.
