Should be located right under the TouchPad.

Turn off your laptop, unplug and remove the battery, remove 3 screws (one is covered by a rubber grommet) and you should be able to slide it out no problem.

There are two screws which attach the HDD to the plastic piece. And there are 4 screws which attach the cage to the HDD. You will need to remove these both and attach them to your new HDD.

Installation is reverse of removal. Good luck :)

There are 3 screws, look just under the opening catch, you will see 2 screws, the other is behind the little rubber grommet, remove all three drive then just pulls out!

What button do i hit at start up to reformat the hard drive on a compaq presario 700


Hi purple7558

did you mean format the hard disk and then install the operating system.?
press F10 to enter the bios setup, then set the boot sequence to cd rom first.
insert your windows cd into the cd rom.
save settings and restart. after the computer restarts it will detect that you enter cd then press enter.
the next process is the usual kind of format and install your operating system.

thanks&regards

I have a Compaq Presario V3309TU Notebook PC. I reformatted the hard drive, now I could not install windows XP cd. The hard drive could not be detected. Can someone help me get the SATA Driver for Compaq...


The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a Compaq SATA drive on a disk etc and can install it when XP asks for a hard drive driver, then XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.
The Fix.
Go into the BIOS and disable the SATA drive, this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then install XP normally, and all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Harddisk is not getting detected


You computer cannot find your hard disk. The hard drive could be faulty or the hard disk controller has failed.
Reseat the hard drive (remove it and install it again), this may fix your problem with the connector on the motherboard.
If reseating doesn't work, the hard drive may be faulty, remove the drive and insert it into a USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port, if this computer see your hard disk as an external drive and you can see the contents of the hard drive then it is OK and the fault most likely is the controler in the laptop.
If you cannot see the hard drive then the hard drive is faulty. To get your laptop operational again, you need a new hard disk and need to install Windows on the new hard disk together with your
