SOURCE: i am trying to find were to put the new hard drive

If this is to replace the original drive, you will find it behind one of the blank plates on the front panel. Remove the side cover and the power cord. You should see the drive at once. Remove the 4-pin power plug and the wide data plug. Remove the mounting screws (2). There is facility to place 2 more on the other side as well, but it is hard to get to, so there are usually none installed. Mount the new one in it's place. Install both plugs. It will need formatting which is done when windows is installed. You will also have to first go to 'setup' bios to confirm the drive--exit and save. If this is to be a second drive, go through the above in one of the vacant slots and find the extra power and data plugs. Confirm the 'setup' in bios as before, then let windows format and partition the new drive. It should automatically assign the new drive letter. Hope that helps.

How do i re install windows xp on my compaq presario 5000

If you place your XP OS disc in the DVD/CD drive and boot from it, let the OS disc format your hard drive and there you are, when it has finished, all done. XP on your hard drive.
All you have to do then is try and find the drivers you need. Good luck as XP is no longer supported.

Error loading operating system

If you take a hard drive for one computer to another the windows wil have to be reinstalled as windows looks at the hardware configuation and if it doesn not match, will not run. If the 20 gb hard is working , reinstall it then using backup software back it up to another hard drive.That will work. Personally I use" Acronis true home" software to change a hard drive but their  are other  wil also work. Some  backup and transfer softwware even come with the replacment hard drives.
