Question about Compaq 310640-001 Keyboard for Presario notebook PC 3000
I am putting another OS on a computer. I am installing a ISO OS that I got online but the CD i made was not big enough to hold the entire file and the computer can not boot USB. Is there a live disk that can use to install ISO as the main OS from a USB?

SOURCE: boot up with no operating system
When the system starts, hold the F10 key and go into BIOS and set CD Rom as 1st Boot device (in Boot Order). Because most Compaq's would put the BIOS in a hidden NON-DOS partition on the hard drive, you may have to get an OEM recovery disk for that model. Because there is no BIOS to go to, the machine doesn't know it has a CD, HD or Floppy to go to. A boot floppy/CD is no help. Alternative 1: With another desktop and IDE to Laptop HD connector, FDISK (make active partition and hidden partition [5mb]), Format both, copy the cabs from WinME CD to c:\windows\options. Alternative 2: Find the COMPAQ OEM CD for that model. Since there was no exact model number Click here Please indicate whether this is helpful or not.

SOURCE: HOW TO BOOT
If you have access to an external drive enclosure, OR you have a computer you can put the hard-drive from
that machine in temporarily, put the drive in one of them and copy the WIN98 directory to the harddrive.
Once the WIN98 directory is there, you can just install it from there. That is of course if the hard-drive has been
formatted with the /sys command, and set to primary boot drive using FDISK. As far as installing from floppy,..
the floppies haven't been on the market for a LONG time, and if you have them,.. I imagine they've seen better
days. If you HAVE to install from floppy though, use another computer, put in the CD, open the cd using windows
explorer. Once here, click on the WIN98 directory, and locate the files you need ( too many files and directories
to list here ) Seriously the best way would be to use an external drive enclosure ( since it's probably a 2.5" drive
size ) and just copy the whole directory to the drive and forget the floppy idea. It will take MUCH less time.

Enter BIOS Menu and look for Hard Disk SATA IDE setting of AHCI. Disable this by setting to Compatible mode.
XP does not support AHCI mode.
Please rate me if this works.

I would first make sure that your laptop can actually handle the HDD's capacity, and the interface, then go into yout BIOS and make sure any switches that need to be hit are in fact set properly. First make sure that it is actually powering up. Regardless of what's going on, if the jumper settings are correct your motherboard should notify you that there is a proper conection in the bois display. If you don't see this, make sure that it is actually powering up, and that the jumper pin(s) are positioned correctly.
