There are several BIOS updates for your system. I will give you a link at the bottom. Did you install your HD drive as a master,slave or CS(cable select). I know Compaq uses CS in all of their systems. Do this first before the BIOS update. Hope fully this should help you fix your problem. Also what are the requirements for your HD Drive? Does your system meet these requirements? For your system f10 is how you get into the BIOS.

F10 should get you into the BIOS. Start tapping after cold startup

Mine hitachi hard disk is 80GB SATA i cant able to install OS because it is showing error some virus found and u r not able to formate this. first when i put OS CD in drive it will install some files and...


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

BOOT.INC default= signature


Your old hard drive contained files used by the OS, as well as the OS itself. If you replaced that HD with another, and did not clone your existing install onto the new HD, then there is no boot record, nor is there anything to boot. It is not possible to just swap a HD and expect it to work without either cloning the old drive or performing a fresh install of an OS. The fact that it is detected by the BIOS is good, as you can install a new OS onto the new drive, or use a program like Ghost to clone your old drive's contents onto the new drive.

Soundcard


Hey there, the HP bios is pretty smart - it should automatically detect a new sound card and switch off the internal one when installed - alternatively you can go to the 'system devices' panel and disable it in the software as well.
hope this helps
cheers

Re: HDD replacement


If you have replaced the HD - this drive will be completely blank.
Your computer needs an operating system installed.
If you got a system restore CD/DVD with your computer - this is a good time to insert it and follow the onscreen instructions.

Alternatively if you have a windows install disk then this is a good time to install it.

Its also likely that everything on the old hard disk has been lost.

However - At a later date you could try and add it as a Slave disk to see if you can recover your documents etc once you have your machine up and running on the new disk.

How to install seagate ata IV hardrive


Hi,

The easiest way to upgrade from your old HD to the new 40Gb HD is to clone the old to the new. Do a google for "hard disk clone" freewares. Personally I use Partition Magic and have had very good results.

Hardware wise, you need to install the 40Gb as a slave to the old HD by connecting the same IDE cable as that of the old HD (you may have to remove your CD/DVD temporarily). You also have to temporarily remove the single jumper of the 40Gb to allocate it as a slave to the primary master (old HD). Plug in likewise the 4 wire power connector. On power up go to your CMOS/BIOS setup to verify that your PC autodetect the 40GB (you may have to do a manual detection). Boot your PC and go through the normal boot sequence. Thereafter download your clone software choice, install and run. Follow on screen instructions. You may need to reboot. After completion, use Windows Explorer to verify that everything has been copied. Power down, remove the old HD, relocate IDE cable connector of the old HD to the 40Gb, reconnect your CD/DVD, and place back the jumper of the 40Gb. On popwer up go again to your CMOS/BIOS to verify that the 40Gb & the CD are detected. Save & exit, reboot.

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

Good luck and kind regards.
