When you installed the ribbon cable to the hard drive, did you make sure that the ribbon cable and the side with the red line on the cable is connected to PIN1 on the hard drive and the motherboard. If it is connected wrong it can keep the computer from starting. Also, did you make sure that you have the cd-drive and hard drive on master and slave? If you need more help on this, let me know.

How do I take the case off the Presario 7598???


You can usually take the left side panel of the case off by unscrewing a thumbscrew on the back of the case and then sliding it backwards. You cannot however take off the entire case, because of how the components are installed in the inside. (It would require you to disassemble the computer completely)

Added a new hard drive to my desktop compaq presario sr1620nx and trying to install my operating system and its says no operating system found or corrupt partition and when i hit r to recover its brings me...


You can't transfer the operating system. You have to reinstall it on the new hard drive. Most of the time the disks that come with a computer are just restore disks. Without the restore partition that comes on the hard drive that came with the computer, those disks are usually useless. Or if you want, you can keep both hard drives, and just setup the jumper settings on the hard drives so that the old hard drive is the primary, and the new one is the secondary. Then you will still have the operating system and you will use the new hard drive for storage.

Hp compaq presario v3000 is not loding the OS, show an error


  • as you boot the computer, start tapping the F8 keys
  • From the boot menu, select Safe Mode
If this seems to work, you can try restoring the computer to an earlier point from Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
If Safe Mode also fails to load, you would have to check your disk for errors or you may have to install XP all over again.
Please get back, if you need any further help.

Can't reboot Compaq/Presario desktop, (power supply is working)


If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.

Error loading operating system


If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.
