Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
Whenever i enter a disc into the drive nothing happens one day it worked the next day it stopped
A hard drive can stop working just like any other electronic device when it becomes faulty.
First go into the BIOS configuration and check if the hard disk is detected. If not it could be faulty.
Next re-seat the hard drive, it just may need connecting again to make proper electrical connection.
If it still does not work, then remove the hard drive and plug it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external USB hard drive nor can you open the folders and files then the hard drive is definitely faulty.
To get the laptop functioning again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive together with the laptop's device drivers and your programs.
