You need to install Windows. You'll have to buy a Windows XP Home (preferably) installation CD with Certificate of Authenticity and 25-digit registration key. You'll put the CD in the drive and boot the machine, it should boot off the CD and start the Windows XP installation process. Once that is done, your computer should run perfectly.

MY 10 GIG HARD DRIVE IS FUNCTIONING AS A 2 GIG HARD DRIVE, ITS ONLY DISPLAYING ABOUT 2 GIG AND THATS ALL IM WORKING ON, I RECENTLY INSTALLED XP ON IT. WHERE IS THE REST OF THE SPACE? THERE IS ONLY ONE...


Since it is an old drive. It could just been formatted on 2 gig where FAT system that can run using windows OS. Just partition the rest that is remaining, activate it and then format it to make it usable. You can use third party partitioning software if you like. And before I forgot check also its jumper if setting is lock to access on 2 gig only.

Just for input.

Compaq presario v2414NR, HD acting weird.


They probably never updated the bios, and it's still looking for the old drive, if you get into the bios, you can remove that drive that it's searching for and then make sure that the new drive is being recognised at the 0 position, not 1 but zero, if that doesn't fix it we can go further but that mnmay be the problem, also go into your device manager and make sure you remove the old drive if it's still showing that it is in there. Just uninstall it and restart. the cmos settings should also be cleared by removing the plug and poping out the battery, on the motherboard, it looks like a quarter, it may stll have the old settings stoed in there Good luck, and let us know if it worked

New 360


Your old 20 gig will work with your new xbox, the hard drives are compatable no matter how old the 360 is. You can transfer all the stuff but you will have to call xbox and get a transfer kit. Its an adapter so you can attach both hard drives to the same xbox and a disc that runs the program. call 18004MYXBOX and tell them you want one. They are free and you will get it in the mail in around a week.
