XP installation problem - HP Cpmpaq 6720s Laptop [HDD detection error]

The hard disk is not detected because this model notebook has a SATA hard drive installed and the XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then, XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

When I press the power button, nothing happens...this was after I ran a test on the hard drive and it said that no IDE was found. Now it is not even powering on.


i would remove the hard drive from the bottom of the laptop give the ide part of it a blow
then replace making sure of a firm fit

then make sure the laptop is plugged into the wall socket and turned on and that the power light is showing up on the front of the laptop

and try again

if that dont work

try this

last know good configuration and windows will try to restart itself

hopefully it will

Computer locked up had to turn off with power button

To narrow down on the issue, try connecting some external monitor to the system and see if it works.
If above doesn't work then the fault is with the motherboard, else the screen is faulty.
Either of the two motherboard or monitor is faulty. Try contacting the service station or vendor.

Compaq presario sr1800nx won't turn on

Check the jumper settings on the DVDRW. Depending on IDE location, you need to set the jumpers accordingly. If you have the main system hard drive on the same IDE channel as the DVDRW, set the jumpers on the DVDRW to slave, if that don't work, set them to Cable Select. I'm assuming it's an IDE drive and not SATA.

Have a Compaq Notebook V5005US PC that won't turn on. The only light showing on the front is the IDE light. No battery light. Don't know what might have happened? Was working when I turned it off.

Unplug the power cable then remove the battery and let it sit out for a while. Then put it back in and try it. Sometimes the battery can cause issues. not saying this is the absolute fix, but it's a starting point. Post a response if this doesn't help and we can take the next step to try and troubleshoot it.

Compaq V5005us is weird. Powers on with black screen and freezes

It sounds like your Video card and/or motherboard are starting to give out or your LCD is giving way. Try plugging the laptop into an external screen and see if it still acts strangely or even displays on the external monitor.
