The drive needs to be partitioned and formatted. Right click my computer and choose manage. then diskmanagement. Select the drive and format it.

Will an optical drive from cq62 fit mine?


NO.

I sort of see your reasoning, but NO.
HP Compaq DC7700 Ultra-Slim Desktop PC, and Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC DVD burner drive?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-For-Compaq-Presario-CQ62-TS-L633-SATA-CD-RW-DVD-RW-Multi-Burner-Laptop-Drive-/300725349252?pt=US_CD_DVD_Blu_Ray_Drives&hash=item4604a0ab84

Until I compared both units I would have stated NO.

Now that I have THANK YOU. I just learned something,

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Compaq-DC7700-DC7800-DVD-ROM/dp/B004574PEG

Referring back to the photo view, of the Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC's DVD burner drive shown, the REAR view shows the connectors for the SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The connectors use the same L-shape design, and size that a SATA unit for a desktop computer, would use.

Case design looks to be similar also.

I believe you are Correct.

How do i find my hp compact ,the model # to look for the manuel for my comp, i have a hard drive i guess it's a new type and i want to add another hard drive but it's the old conection, what i can do ,,


I assume you new hard drive is a SATA hard drive and your HP only has an IDE hard drive.
To install a SATA hard drive in the HP, you will need to install a SATA controller card in your HP so the SATA hard drive can work in the HP computer. You will also need a power adapter lead for the SATA hard that converts the 4 pin power connector to a SATA power connector.

My hp compaq nx 6310 has windows 7 and it cant find a hdd during xp installation


The reason why the Windows XP cannot find the SATA hard disk in the installation process is because XP does not have a SATA driver on the installation CD.

I want install a bigger internal hard drive,whats in it now is a 160 gb ide ultra ata..wshat are my options?


There are a few options. The easiest option is to put in another IDE drive of your choice, along with your existing drive. That way you don't have to re-install or clone your operating system on or to the new drive.

I couldn't tell for sure from reading the info provided by HP whether your motherboard has SATA ports or not. Probably not, due to the age of the computer. Not to worry, if you want to use a SATA drive, just pick up an adapter, such as this:

Where are the SATA ports on the hp compaq dc5000 sff mother board?


Hello,

To the best of my knowledge and working with HP/Compaq for over 8 years, this model does not have SATA ports on the motherboard unless someone has customized your system with a new board other than that which came as the original board.

NOTE: you are using a PC that is from 4 years ago. Any number of things could be wrong with the set, which includes the audio chip.

Now, did you install the appropriate audio driver? Assuming you bought this thing off fleabay, did the seller at least gave you the original system restoration disc? If he did, try the audio driver from the disc first.

You may also refer to this thread.
