Question about HP Compaq Presario 2200 Notebook

2 Answers

I have a compaq presario 2200 notebook that needs a new hard drive. The HP site is charging big dollars to replace the drive. Is there a different drive that I can purchase that is more reasonable? Can you recommend a supplier that will ship to Canada? Thanks for you time. Battista.

In most cases you do not have to purchase a hard ddrive from the system manufacture. The thing that you have to keep in mind is what type of drive you have, PATA or SATA. The link below will help you check this.

Also note if you have a PATA drive and the drive size 120 gig or less then you will not want to get bigger than that for the replace to make sure that the replacement drive will work in your computer. In addition you will need a notebook or 2.5 hard drive for a replacement for your notebook.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Presario 2200 hdd not being detected


This is not good, remove the hard drive and reseat it back in place, sometimes that is enough to get it going, if no change! the hardware may be open and if that has been determined you will need a new hard drive.

My compaq presario 2200 wont boot up...when i press the on/off switch without the a/c charger (battery alone), the amber led flashes twice....if i plug the charger in with the battery, the led blinks once...


Hello,

If the computer is not turning on, there is a big chance of hardware failure and normally there is no easy fix for this rather than a motherboard replacement.

How do I remove a Compaq Presario 2200 forgotten drivelock password


If you forgot the password of the hard drive I'm afraid there is no way to access the drive any more. This password is used to encrypt the hard drive entirely, and without this key there is no way to decrypt the files or access the drive.

What is the largest drive I should put in my Compaq Presario 2200 PC Notebook?


Usually the drive which can be put in your machine depends on what you want to use the machine for. But usually to attain optimum performance it is advisable to put in a hard disk in accordance to the RAM on your system. The ration of RAM to hard drive should be about 1 Gig Ram to 100Gig Hard drive. This should help you decide what size of drive to put.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

How do i remove my compaq presario 2200's hard drive?


The Compaq Presario line is one of the longest-running series of computers, originating in 1993 and remaining in production even after the purchase of Compaq by HP. Because of this, many Compaq Presario desktops have required that some of their parts be upgraded or replaced because of the wear that they have received over years of standard use. One of the more commonly replaced Presario desktop components is the hard drives, especially given how much hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif storage capacity has increased since the Compaq Presario line was introduced. Replacing a hard drive in a Compaq Presario desktop isn't difficult, and can usually be done in a matter of minutes even for users who aren't familiar with computer upgrades.
structions
  1. Step 1Remove the screws holding the left side panel of the computer on, then slide the panel back to remove it. Set both the panel and the screws aside so that you can put the panel back in place once the hard drive has been replaced.
  2. Step 2Unplug the ATA (wide, flat and usually gray) or SATA (thicker, thin and red) data cable and the power cable from the back of the hard drive that is currently in the Compaq Presario. Move the cables so that they will be out of the way, but make sure that they will still be easily accessible to you so that you can plug them into the new hard drive.
