My CDR Drive is not working

My laptop is a Compaq Evo N800v

I looked for my drive and only C and D drive is available. I have partition drive so no CDR drive is showing.

It appears no driver is available on the Net and you need windows CD to fix it but my drive doesnt work.

Can I re install a driver to make my CDR drive work?

The best way is to double click the windows wireless symbol by the clock and click preferences on the left. Open the Networks tab and the first option is a check box to use windows for wireless, check the box and click apply. Once again double click the wireless symbol and select your network.

It depends upon your needs, the larger the hard drive to higher the cost and the maximun size you can install depends upon the BIOS. The smallest hard drive that is readily available is about 100Gb.

I can not install Windows on my Compaq Evo N620c


The quickest solution here would be to put the hard drive into a computer that has Windows already running, and format it through the operating system itself. I've run into this problem a few times, and when another computer wasn't available I would use a Linux boot disk to clear out all my partition tables, then I would load up with Windows XP and tell it to write a new NTFS partition. Do NOT select the 'quick format' option, you'll have to wait through the long one.

I want to open my hardrive in the model EVO N800V COMPAQ to replace it..kindly help..


Looks like it's just a notebook IDE drive. On the bottom of the laptop, there should be some symbols that look like hdd platters in a vertical line. Unscrew the screws next to these symbols and pop that cover. Remove hdd, take old hdd out of the metal cradle it's in and put the new on in there. Then screw back together.
