Windows XP doesn't see my CDROM on Compaq 2596us

When you boot your laptop, place your XP disk in the DVD drive. If the boot sequence starts with CD ROM then you should be able to boot from the disc. If you can, there is nothing wrong with the drive, there is a firmware error in Device Manager.

How to install 2 t hard drive in computer compaq

A 2Tb hard disk will be a SATA hard drive. If your PC Desktop does not have a SATA disk controller then your have a couple of options.

1. Insert a SATA controller card into the PCI expansion slot, mount the SATA hard drive inside the PC case and then connect the SATA hard drive to the controller (you will also need a 4 pin power to SATA adapter cable) and install the SATA controller driver.

2. The other option (and the easiest) is to purchase an external USB 2Tb hard drive. All you need to do is, plug it into the USB port of your computer and it will see it as an external storage device.

I have an presario 2596us laptop, the keyboard came off the pin connection and some of the pins are broken off or are bent. Do I have to replace the motherboard?

If you look at where the keyboard was plugged in,you will probably see a plastic bar.Your keyboard should have a ribbon cable that pluggs into that plug on the motherboard.If its wire connectors and you have a solder iron handy,you may be able to fix the wire ends and re-solder them back into the proper places....let me know,please:)

June 22, 2009 Dear Person, I have an HP-Compaq laptop computer, business model nx9010, s/n CNF3520KL4, with a failed hard drive. I am unable to remove the drive. I have removed the three (3) visible screws...
1. Unplug the AC adapter, if present, and then remove the battery.
2. On the bottom of the notebook, remove the hard disk drive rubber screw plugs and
M2.5×6.0mm screws. (The number of plugs and screws varies by model).
3. Carefully pull the hard disk drive out of the notebook.
4. Remove the four M3.0×4.0mm screws from the hard disk drive and hard disk drive tray,
and then lift the drive out of the tray.
5. Remove the connector bar from the hard disk drive.
The manual does have little picture to help you. The link above is to download the service manual.

AC Adapter Problem

why not buy the correct power pack
matching the power needs of you puter.
each puter needs a watts level, do that or more never less.
only spec tells you what you need,
its in the service guide for you PC.
take out the battery
now run OFF LINE pack
run now? good, does it drop dead if you gently
wiggle the plug at PC port> not moving pack and its cable.
yes, then the PC has a bad power port end cause.

if it is the PC power jack bad
you will never fix it. its real deep and takes totally disassembly to reach.,(done many and do no teach LT guts to anyone)

amazing has your books, and is always there.
read them it specs it out.
yes, power packs go bad, 3 ways, dead, weak, or intermittent.
all do in time, (max life is about 20years,less if overloaded, as i bet you did)
if the PC needs, 50w, do not put in a 30w. use 50 or 75 or 100w
see? or it overheats .the pack,

here is your page (OP)
seems very very old, HP, is fighting me...
needs 19v at 90watts,
$8 to learn what is bad, is this too much>?
old XP LT built in the 1990 its very very old and slow.
256mb ram wow. Celeron ouch.

Comparq presario 2500

not that tough..take off the side skin(right side as you look at it).

then there will be some tabs inside, that you press(Gently) in..and releases front panel

then with either screws that come out, or a slider, with connection cables off back, it's out

just reverse it to re install

get the new drivers first though.
