Are you trying to set up a raid configuration? If not I would reformat using the 98 disk and reinstall. (You may be able to skip installing 98, try installing xp first and it should ask for the disk containing the software (win98) that qualifies for the upgrade.

    Did you reformat the hard drive first? You can do this with a boot disk or your win98 CDrom.

I get an error message boot failure


Doesn't sound too good.
Try to go into the BIOS of the computer and see if the hard disk is visible there.
To get into the BIOS you usually press either F2, Delete or F10, repeatedly, immediately after turning on the computer.
If the drive is not listed there, I would check the data and power cables are correctly connected to the mainboard and hard disk - unlikely but worth checking.
If its not a cable issue, then the hard disk may have failed.

If the drive is listed in the BIOS, I would test the hard disk for errors using a boot CD - such as Seagate's Seatools disk - its a free download, burn the image to dvd, boot from the cd and test the hard disk. It works on pretty much any disk, not just seagate drives.
If it fails to see the hard disk, I'd remove the drive and test in another system.
If it can see the drive and finds many bad sectors, I'd stop it and seek professional support if you care about your files.
Otherwise, buy a new drive, connect it up the same, and then use the recovery disks you have to install the OS again.

Hope this helps.

HARD DRIVE NOT RECONIZED , SOMETIMESIT SHOWS IN BIOS SOMETIMES IT DOES NOT


First please try to connect this hard drive to other computer and check if it working fine there or not. Then, take your decision of purchasing a new hard drive. It could be an issue with the connecting point between hard drive and mother board.

It is most likely that your hard drive has gone bad or is no longer being recognized by the system. Run drive diagnostics check from the BIO and if the drive is faulty, replace the drive.

MY LAP TOP MESSAGE SAYS... 1782 DISK CONTROLLER


You are getting this mess because the system is not able to detect a boot partition on the hdd or may be it is not able to detect the HDD itself.

Try to remove the HDD(hard disk) and re-seat it, Also make sure that there is no disk in the CD drive (in case the first boot device in the BIOS is set as CD drive).

Go to BIOS by pressing F10 (system setup) and check if the HDD is detected in BIOS.

Try to run a recovery by pressing F11 on first screen after power on.

Please get back for any further assistance.

You may be able to purchase a system disk from Compaq, otherwise, try any generic XP disk. It won't have any Compaq drivers, but at least you can reformat the C: drive and get XP on it.

Hi,
refer to the users manual, or download if possible.
Yellow/Orange could mean that the computer is In Hibernate/Sleep Mode et,c. usually restored by pressing certain keyboard keys Or pressing and holding the power on button For 4 seconds or more.
Other Possibility ( graphics/VGA driver or device, Corrupt Or missing )
You could change the graphics card, Or remove the motherboards Cmos Battery, for 10 seconds, which will restore the Computers Bios, default settings.

Bios shows not hard disk even after putting to Auto and trying User settings


This usually means Hard Drive failure, are your connections good? Is this a new drive? If you know you have a drive with os on it then boot files could be damaged. Can you boot with os disk? You can do a repair from the windows disk in recovery mode. reset bios to default values. Last resort before saying maybe the drive controllers on motherboard are bad. Take apart and do good cleaning. This worked believe it or not on a stubborn laptop that I replaced Hard Drive and still was giving me similar errors. Client says computer has been working ever since.

Compaq will not boot


Sounds like your hard drive has begun to fail or has failed. Enter into your BIOS again and find the menu choice that lets you reset everything back to the defaults.

If you have the recovery CD that came with your Compaq you can try running that to see if it will mark the bad spots on the drive and allow you to continue using it.

I would recommend that you resign yourself to the fact that you will have to replace the drive soon. If there is valuable data on the drive, buy a new hard drive, install it and run the recovery CD on it. When you are able to boot up to Windows successfully, shut it down, unplug power and add the old drive as a slave to see if you can retrieve data from it.

If that does not work and the data is worth paying some serious money to retrieve, there are places that are able to retreive data even if the drive will not even spin. They are expensive!
