Will the hard drive that has been running in my E-Machine work in my Compaq?

My E-Machine crashed, the monitor connection burnt out, so I want to put the F-H hard drive in my Compaq. Will the Compaq be able to run the hard drive?

    For much safety, if you are willing to try, I suggest to run your hard drive using a usb enclosure.

Make sure you start by deleting the old partition, and formatting C:. If it still locks up after that, then your hard drive is bad.

It could be your hard drive problem. Which I called it, "Crash." I would suggest you try to format the hard drive and reload the operation system with your installation CD.

EMachines T1840 mother board crash


You need to get hold of a boot CD - BartPE is great for this. Put the hard drive in another computer, and you'll find it more than likely blue screens, as the Drive Controller Drivers don't match the motherboard. Run a program called FIX-IDE, reboot, and it should at least boot. You might find that all sorts of other bits don't work though, but your apps should. Download the drivers for the new board and you should be off and away.

I get a message saying that programms have stopped working on start-up. then it prompts me to run the hard drive error checking tool... i follow the instructions to do so but cannot find the tool on my pc...


Uh oh. Your hard drive is about to crash. I would back up important pictures, music, and documents as soon as possible and get your computer to someone who can image the drive to a new drive before it crashes completely.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks,

Jason

I press the power button my PC and it starts beeping for maybe... 4 seconds, My hard drive crashed and i bought a new one.


This usually happens when something gets knocked loose such as the ram modules or video card, if nothing displays on the monitor, then the video card is potentially loose (unless you are using the onboard video) If you have any cards plugged in to the motherboard, take them out and re-seat them (put them back in :-)
If the beeps continue after that, remove the hard drive and then power on the system - if something shows on the monitor, then you know the hard drive is not supported by that system

Compaq Mother board


Sounds like your hard drive has crashed. If you are getting an audible click from the hard drive, it is the arm hitting. Even then, sometimes you can get them to boot up on occasion.

The hard drive/SATA issue would depend on your motherboard connection. I think that there may be adapters to convert from a IDE to a SATA, but I haven't ever used one.

Hard drive not found


It's not a connection problem. The hard drive has crashed and needs replaced.
