Try entering your BIOS and make sure your new drive is being recognized in the drives section and aslo make sure your drive is set to SATA not RAID . you can use AHCI mode also just it to set it to SATA then see if it installs. Also are you using a dvd to install it use a not scratched copy of windows DVD and install it fron your dvd/cd drive and set it to boot from your optical drive in BIOS as well.

Do you have to remove the hard drive when installing memory? for a inspiron 2200 lap top.


No, you do not need to remove the harddrive just because you want to install memory in your computer, unless the harddrive is in the way for ,
memory changement.Usually harddrive is located in that way so the memory wont be near the sometimes hot harddrive.
Hope this helped, Please vote!.

I have a problem geting my recovery disc to work in my compaq presario 2200 laptop, as i have just installed a new harddrive iam getting a PXE-E61: Media test failure and PXE-M0F Exiting PXE-ROM. ldygolfer


You need to change the boot order in the bios.

When you start the computer screen should prompt you at the bottom with something like:

F2 or F10 to enter setup.

Once you're in the bios, change the boot order to cd / dvd first.

Right now it's trying to boot through the network, that's why you're getting that message.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Best of Luck!

Drivers needed


http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=22097
http://members.driverguide.com/driver/detail.php?driverid=22835

Those are the drivers you will need, they are current. If for whatever reason you loaded a different operating system on the system than the one it came with, then go to:

www.driversearch.com/ and Run a Search pattern using the Model Name and Number of your computer and specilize the search to your Operating System

Transfer of old laptop's condent to external harddrive


Windows 98 don't have pre-installed drivers for mass storage, like external hdd, pen drive, flush memory etc.

So, you should install the driver for your external hdd then win 98 will recognize it. And you can use it. For you external drive driver you can surf your external manifacturer site.

If any problem Ask me.

Thanks
