You can use sata drives in this old computer but frankly don't waste your money on this old machine.

SOURCE: compaq presario 2200 is very slow

If you are running the Compaq presario 2200, you can only have 80megs of RAM. I would suggest a new computer. What windows version are you running?

SOURCE: Computer died. Need to do data recovery of SATA hard disk.

Hey Edward,

Use a SATA external hard drive enclosure (listings for the device on ebay) to connect the disc to a USB port on your other machine and transfer any data off of it.

You can find these devices locally also but you can pick them up on ebay pretty cheap.

My compaq presario/sr1750nx/ w sata drive/ amd 64 athlon. came with windows XP. I put put a new hard drive in the computer, with Windows 7 installed. I power up the tower, and the monitor stays blank?


Hi!

It is very unlikely to get the machine working when the windows 7 HDD was installed in a different type of computer, because all drivers installed with the operating system are related to the hardware from the other computer.
The best solution is to make a clean install, using the windows installation disk, and after that to download from Compaq's site the latest drivers.

If you still have reasons to use that previous installation, you can try to do the following:

1. Boot from the Windows installation disk
2. Follow all steps until it discovers the previous installation on the HDD
3. Choose to repair it (or better upgrade, if this option is available).

But doing so there only 50-50 chances to get it work, or to get it to be stable.

Hope it helped.

XP cannot be installed natively on an SATA disk without the appropriate driver which must be loaded during the install - an extremely complicated maneuver. The best way to deal with that is to just add the new SATA hard disk: install XP on the PATA and use the new SATA for your files as a separate partition. The adapter cable can be bought for about $5 from the same shop as the hdd.
All the other modifications are just fine - just remember , the RAM will not be fully recognized and used because of the limitations of the 32bit XP.

Disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter


When you encountered this kind of failure this is a HDD error, so check the HDD if it is properly connected. Use another IDE or SATA cable, use also the another SATA or IDE slot of your motherboard. No another way to fix it that is only the hard disk you need to check. Maybe the IDE or SATA cable is bad or the HDD itself. Good luck!

768 meg is the most you can put in the 5000 ..your system only has 128 meg so 768 would be a considerable improvment .... "crucial.com" is a great company to get reliable memory and information ... here is their page on your computer

Installing XP SP3 pro on my presario C700


Most likely you have a SATA drive which windows is not detecting. Restart the setup and press F6. You will need to use another system to download the SATA drivers and save to a disk. Then when prompted you can insert the disk. You can also upgrade to XP professional which will almost always recognize the SATA drives. Good Luck.

Need to upgrade my Compaq Presario 5000's RAM and HD. Need suggestions.


Try to go to this site and use the compatibility tool and see if that points you in the right direction. Although it won't mess up your system to install the wrong ram it could be a costly mistake to order the wrong ram.

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.
