How do I install new Hard Drive in my Compaq Presario cq5320PC Desktop


Hmm Well I cant seem to find your computer model anywhere on the Internet.... but assuming its a basic compaq Computer All you would need to do is buy the correct type of Hard Drive (Ide, sata) open the computer up with the power unplugged and static protection..... now some computers have multiple Hard Drive bays and some only have one so you will need to install your new HD into a bay assuming your replacing your current HD you would remove the old HD and install this one in its spot dont forget to Check the jumper setting on the Hard drive to either match the drive your replacing or as a Master in a single HD setup also plug in a power source and the data cable into your new drive or it wont work.... it should be that easy almost all new computers will automatically configure it in the cmos for you.... if its a replacement for your main HD then it will need You to install an Operating System on it before you can use it.

if you have a new hard drive you will have to install the windows operating system from an external source such as a cd drive
go to bios --boot settings and change from 1st boot hard drive to 1st boot cd
install the win os and then you can install the rest
when finished go back to bios and -boot and change back to 1st boot hard drive

Installing a new HD will I have to re-install windows?????


No, a new hard drive means you'll have to re-install Windows from the CD's that originally came with the notebook (or a retail copy of Windows as well) and all of the programs and files that you had before.  A new hard drive is totally blank.

Trying to boot from a hd from my old comp


Hi,

MS Windows XP when installed to an HD will "marry" itself to the hardware of the original computer specifically the motherboard. Transplanting the HD to another PC with a different motherboard will result in a cycling blue screen of death or protective message requiring that you reboot. Running in Safe Mode will not also be allowed.

You need to re-install your OS (boot from CD) but choose the 2nd repair option rather than a new/clean install or the first repair option if you want to preserve your other applications as well as your settings/configuration. Doing this will allow the OS to install the new device drivers and delete the old ones.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

God luck and kind regards.

How to Install a new HD on Dell Inspiron 6000?


You can always parition the drive, and install both Ubuntu and XP (dual boot).

Yes, you will be able to access the files (providing the drive isn't totally crashed), although Ubuntu may not "know" what the files are.

It sounds like there's underlying problems unrelated to Panther. If the computer boots from the the old HD, but then the HD didn't show under Disk Utility, this is an intermittent problem. Try replacing the cable that goes to the HD (if there is one), it may have become damaged sufficiently that things aren't working under "heavy use" (like trying to install an OS). If there is no cable, or replacing it doesn't work, I'd suggest putting the original HD in and selling the computer as-is. Again, if it still botos from the old HD, then it's not a problem with the HD or Panther, unless the reconditioned HD you bought was faulty (unlikely but possible). More likely is when you installed the reconditioned HD, something else changes (e.g. connection made better contact) that caused the HD to show.
