Installed new hardrive on our Compaq laptop, question

I have a Compaq F730 laptop and had a new hardrive installed in it today.
When purchased 18 months ago I made 2 recovery CD's.

Is there anything I should know before putting recovery disk 1 in the CD rom?

Hi there.
Just make sure the boot order is set to the CD/DVD, you can do this by going into the bios or pressing F12 while the computer starts up.
please post back if you need any more assistance.

Regards

Nope you're good to go. You might be asked to make a partition to install windows in. and you can decide to make one large or possibly to make one smaller than the total space available so you can make another drive later on.

Bios not recognizing new hardrive


Hi:
Some older laptops don't always recognize the full size hard drives bigger than 134 Gb, but they usually show up in your bios. There isn't an easy way to install it wrong, so if the drive wasn't new to you, it might have a problem...New Hard drives come with installation CD's, but that won't do you any good until the drive is recognized

The bios test of hard disk test is failed wht can i do now


If the hard disk has failed, and you want the data off of the hard disk, you have two choices..

Purchase a extender to allow you to read the hard disk and also purchase a data recovery program to get the data off the hard disk...

Or google data recovery service and find one that can retrieve data of of bad hard drives..

Either way afterward you will need to purchase a new hard drive.. They have drives as low as 30 dollars online that can be purchased and then installed.

You will need to reinstall windows on the new hard drive you get..

Ultimately you will have to weigh the cost of repairing the computer ( purchasing a hardrive and purchasing a new copy of windows)

Versus purchasing a new computer.

No usb


If your USB ports are installed correctly and enabled in BIOS, you will see Universal Bus Controller list in the the Device Manager. Double-click your USB in the Device Manager and a dialog box will appear. Click on the driver tab and update the driver. To get to Device Manager right-click on My Computer>click on Hardware>Device Manager. If your computer has a built-in USB device and does not detect the device through the Device Manager, confirm that the USB is enabled in the computers BIOS and that the BIOS supprts USB devices.
