It's not a connection problem. The hard drive has crashed and needs replaced.

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.

Compaq f700 laptop will not boot. Power lights come on but no boot. Get msg. "No OS found." Am able to boot system from Ubuntu CDROM and then access hard drive data using a usb enclosure for the SATA HD...


This is not a problem with the hard drive but rather with your OS installation. Please do a repair installation of the OS using the original US disks.

Good Luck!

I own the above laptop, my hard drive had recently crapped out on me so i went and purchased a new one, i inserted the hard drive, the computer seems to see it in the ROM setup and I am able to do a HDD...


What OS are you trying to install? If it is XP and the HD is SATA you may need to set the SATA driver in BIOS to legacy OS. Hard to believe XP is legacy but I have had this issue w/Compaq laptops.

I have a Compaq Presario 2715US. Started having


The problem maybe a loose electrical connection with the RAM modules and hard disk. Re-seat the RAM modules and the hard disk.
If the problem persists then the hard disk maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer has trouble seeing it as an external hard drive and unable to open the folders and files then the hard disk is faulty.
Then the hard disk needs to be replaced in the Compaq and Windows XP needs to installed on the new hard drive and the device drivers and programs.

No system found ...and tells check cable


Can you enter the CMOS and veryfy that is boothing from the hard disk? you have to remove any cd, dvd, usb drive too. Enter the BIOS/CMOS by pressing F2 xor DEL when booting. Look for BOOT sequence, and set the hard disk as firt boot device. If after that doesnt boot, reinstall OS and if after that doesnt boot, you need a new HD.

Operating system not found media test failure will not reboot aspire 3680


Installing an operating system from one computer and inserting it into another computer will not work specially when they are from different manufacturers because the components in them are different.
The Windows install has to be done on the intended computer.
The media test failure error message refers to a faulty disk controller or a faulty hard disk.
