Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
The 106GB drive looks fine. When you installed the drive did you make sure you set up the drive and cables correctly? If this is the only drive in your system, there are two settings to check.
First the cable connecter on a ide drive should be black, not gray.
Next the drive has a set of jumper settings and it should be set as cable-select or master, not slave.
If those items are ok, then is your O/S CD a restore or a release of windows? A restore cd might be a problem if the drive is not formatted. Most O/S cds will ask if you want to format the drive and setup partitions.
If none of this works, provide more information.
if it works PLEASE LEAVE SOLUTION FEEDBACK.
