Sata drives don't have an option to be master/slave like IDE drives, b/c the Sata cable is per device. If the computer's not pulling up the sata drive, open device manager (right click  my computer, properties, hardware tab, device manager) and look for a yellow question mark. You'll have to install drivers for it more than likely.

Connected a 1 TB harddrive to one of the sata connectors,but in doesn't show up in disk managment to format


Two things, first on a desktop, make sure the other sata connectors are enabled. Most desktops do not come with the sata inputs enabled, this can be done through the bios. Just hit F2 during the post phase and when the HP splash screen shows. Once there look for the SATA settings.

secondly, if the hard drive has never been installed on a computer it most likely is not "initialized", this has to be done for the hard drive to be seen, formatted etc. on the computer. Western Digital and Seagate have their own software that does this process. Since you cannot "see" the hard drive in the computer you have installed it in, I would guess that the sata connectors are not enabled.

I have a Compaq Presario, model #: SR2150NX W/120GB HD


You should be able to add a SATA drive to that machine (IDE should also be available to you). The spec drive in your machine is a 120GB, you may get a decent increase in speed if you use a newer SATA hard drive with a fresh install of Windows on it and simply put the existing drive as the slave or drive 2.
