Compaq Mini 700EL hdd not recognised


If you are installing Windows XP then -
The problem is that XP installation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on a disk etc. and can install the driver 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 (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is a IDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows has been installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver), then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Hello, I have a Sharp Actius MC 24. I'm looking to upgrade the memory. I found 1 memory board in the compartment with the fan on the bottom of the machine. This board was labeled 256 MB. Do I remove this...


The other memory module is soldered on to the motherboard.
Go to Crucial.com and run the memory upgrade scanner. This tool will tell you what memory the system can use and exactly how you can upgrade.

I m unable to open my laptop some kind of


Are you trying literally to open up your Laptop with a screw driver or something... or are you trying to install XP on a Vista pre-installed laptop... Here's the solution...
Go to the BIOS setup [press F8 on startup], & change the disk controller setting from AHCI to IDE. might worth the try. Some Laptops don't have option of SCSI or IDE. But there are SATA Enable/Disable option. Try disabling SATA. Make sure you have all the necessary drivers for your laptop before installing windows...
Let me know if this doesn't solve the problem...

wireless card enabled in BIOS is only telling the machine there is a wireless card other than what was buildin on the mother board.
The wireless will not work without the driver. I don't think you need to worry about the wireless when you installing the XP operting system.
first download the wirelss drive and store it on a CD of other media.
once you have finished the installation. You can install the driver for the wireless, then goto HP.com and download the drivers as you needed them.
My suggestion is install XP as fresh installation, it is much easier and faster, if you don't have any thing on the machine you need to save.
the change you made is fine, the machine should boot up from the CD. it may not happen the first time,but it will the second time.

Sharp actius mc24


Do you know how to flash the BIOS? This could trigger it. Are you sure that it can accept the hard drive. Does the hard drive have jumpers on it? This should be on master if it does have one. Although not common on laptop hard drives it could have one.

Windows installing problem in compaq v6409tu laptop


Go back into your your bios and disable SATA.
You must have IDE enabled if you don't have a SATA drive.
Once IDE is enabled again you should be able to format your drive.
