Does the hard disk spin up in the Compaq?
If not the disk controller in the Compaq is most likely is faulty.
Installing Windows on a hard disk and them moving it into another computer will not work unless the both computers are identical (ie CPU, RAM and installed devices).

It might well be the cable from the motherboard to the drive.

The fact that you can read the drive in another computer suggests that the drive itself is fine.

It would also suggest that the controller is also fine.

Double check the jumpers on the drive and the cable.

If you made any changes to the BIOS also check that area.

Sound driver


Hi sgs182, when a driver fails to install correctly its best to install through windows device manager. Suggest you try this method of instillation before trying another HD audio driver. Also enter your bios & make sure the HD is enabled.
Either use the driver CD that came with the motherboard or download the driver from Biostar. Windows 2003 is more like window XP however we both know what you need is a driver for 2003. Biostar makes other P4M890-M7 motherboards that do support win 2003 for HD.

· P4M890-M7 TE 7.x
· P4M890-M7 SE 7.x
· P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.1
· P4M890-M7 PCI-E 7.0
· P4M890-M7 FE 7.x
Biostar motherboards 7.0 & 7.1 audio drivers are the same file size of 24.77MB & support x86/2003 operating systems.
How to install through windows device manager?
Left click once on the start button. Slide up to & left click on control panel. Find the System icon & open it. Left click on the hardware tab than left click on the device manager button. Scroll down to Sound, video and game controller, which should already be opened. You should see a yellow explanation point here.
Right click once on the yellow ! point & left click once on update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). (Only if you do not want to install from the CD).
Click the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the desktop folder
You created & named. Open it. High-light the folder that has the driver in it & click ok.
Windows will find the correct driver software within the folder & install it automatically. Once completed. Close all opened windows & restart you’re system. Test your audio. If you intend to use a mic, you will need to set this up through the Sounds audio device within the control panel.

Good luck!
Mike

Printer


Windows comes with drivers for many HP printers.

You can try to install your HP deskjet 5440 by going to (depending on operating system) "Start", "Printers and Faxes", "Add Printer". Select a local port. Select "HP" and Model "HP Deskjet 5440".

If 5440 is not in your list, or if you want the latest driver, you can download the driver for your specific operating system here:

Bois problems????


No - this is something that can generally only be resolved with a repair install of the XP.

The repair option can be accessed while doing a standard (i.e. boot from the CD) install. Note: this is a repair option after you select to install; not the repair/recovery options on the first screen.

It should detect your OS and ask if you want to repair it. This will cause you to have to reactivate windows, and I highly recommend having your drivers already downloaded and ready to be installed. Some programs my have to be reinstalled also.

There is a sysprep tool that can be used, but I've always found it easiest to do a repair.

Intel 2.8G\400MHz problem


I would agree that 50% of the time you may get away with putting a working Hd with windows on it to run when changed to another board. When you change your motherboard, there are certain entries in the system registry that are looking for the components of the old motherboard. If the registry does not find these components, the system can become unstable.
The fact that you got windows to some what start is a good sign for the Hd. Try setting the CD as first boot device & have your windows XP in the drive. Do a format & install. I'm sure windows will install. Since you have three boards all the same you will only have to do this once. Foxconn warrants all Mb for life. You can always call at 580-272-0035

Hard Drive Error


This sounds like an issue with the BIOS rather than your hard drive if you are able to boot into Windows. Or do you mean that the PC boots to the windows install? What is the exact error and at what point in the boot process are you seeing it? The BIOS handles the the initial startup of your computer, before Windows is even accessed on the hard drive. If you can boot into windows, then try downloading the latest BIOS from Dell support and upgrade your bios. If you cannot boot into windows, and the PC is just going to the Install CD, then there may be a problem with the connection to the hard drive. If you have tried different hard drives in the same PC, then try swapping out the cable that connects the hard drive to the motherboard. If different cables do not solve the problem, then the problem may lie with the connector on the motherboard. If thats the case, then the entire motherboard will need to be replaced. Also try downloading the following CD to run diagnostics on your hard drive. This should provide further information as to what is wrong with your system: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/
