Can i put my compaq presario 2200 hard drive on another laptop..if so which one?


You should place the drive from the Presario 2200 in an 2.5" external enclosure or use a USB/SATA/IDE adapter. (If you want to use an external enclosure, you will need to check if your drive has a SATA or IDE connection and get the correct type.)

If you replace the drive in a working laptop with the non-working drive, you will probably get the same issue. The error suggests that the Presario can't find an OS on that drive. At best, you will see errors due to drivers and Windows seeing a new CPU and motherboard.

When you connect via a USB connection, you be able to attempt to find the files on the old drive. This will be slow (limited by the USB speed). If you had a desktop, you could get faster transfers. If there is a free 3.5" bay, you will need a 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter. Then you would need some adapters for the IDE connection to the motherboard (if the old drive is IDE and the motherboard supports IDE). Make sure the drive is on the "Slave connection" of an IDE cable and set for Slave or Cable connect. There are IDE to SATA adapters or PCIe cards that will support adding drives if your motherboard can't accept more drives.

Good luck. I hope this helps.

Can i upgrade a ide and sata drive on my compaq presario sr2010nx pc?


yes you can. i suggest using a program called acronius true image. add the new hard drive. be sure to turn on the sata or ide option in the setup bios. then use the true image software to clone your operating systems to your new hard drive. your source drive will be the original drive, and the destination drive will be your new drive. once the operation is complete , youll need to enter setup again and suggest that the new drive be your first boot device. just follow the on screen directions to complete the new setup. NOW... you can keep your old drive for a backup drive , or... you can format that drive and use it for a secondary storage drive. the hard drive can be accessed by my computer then open the drive and simply drag and drop or choose the drive from a save file drop down selection location popup window. this will allow you to save important files that can be accessed at anytime if your system main drive were to ever fail. another option you have is to place your old hard drive in a external hard drive enclosure that can be purchased via ebay and will allow you a large storage device that is mobile and hold mass data unlike a flash drive. this can be a very valuable tool and wont cost more than 20.00 here is a link for an ide hard drive enclosure with free shipping. if you need a sata enclosure, change the search results to (3.5 sata hard drive enclosure) the choose buy it now and choose PRICE+shippind:LOWEST FIRST. hope this was helpfull.

Hard drive interface


Hi nortocd

(01) It will work in your USB hard disk enclosure if the enclosure supports SATA. If the enclosure supports the older style (ATA/EIDE) interface, then you'll just need to get an enclosure that supports SATA for your new hard disk. I like the Nextar external HDD (hard disk drive) enclosures.

You can find many external HDD enclosures made by various manufacturers these days. They're available for 3.5" (laptop-sized) and 5.25" (desktop PC-sized) HDDs supporting ATA/EIDE, SATA and SCSI HDDs and even Optical drives (DVD, etc.) Newegg is a great online source for computer & high tech-related equipment. They're prices are very competitive and their customer service is excellent. You can also find customer reviews of most of the products they sell, too, which can be very helpful.

(02) If you'd like this HDD to be portable, then I recommend you use an external HDD enclosure. They are available w/ USB and w/ eSATA connections (for connecting externally to your computer(s)). I don't recommend using IEEE1394 (firewire) as USB 2.0 is faster. eSATA is faster than USB 2.0 but is not a commonly available external connection on most computers yet.

(03) If a SATA port (connection) is not available inside your computer, you can install a SATA controller (if an expansion card slot is available in your computer) and connect your new HDD to the new controller.

(04) You can find information regarding your Compaq Presario HERE.

(05) I checked your motherboard specifications HERE. Your computer's original equipment does not support SATA. However, if you'd still like the HDD to be installed internally, just install a SATA controller and connect the new HDD to the SATA controller.

Hard drive enclosure for v2000


I have the perfect solution for your hard drive. We have two Bytecc USB 2.5 enclosures that we use in our shop. I've had mine for almost three years and the other is going on one year old. We have put these things through pure heck. They get stuffed in our gear bags, notebook cases, back pockets, etc. We are not rough with them, but we are not nice to them either.

You can get them from Newegg.com. One will run you about $20.oo dollars. It comes with a carry case and USB cable. The cable has two USB ends on it. One end lets your computer see it and add it as an external hard drive and the other provides extra power to the unit. I have sold apx. 45 of these to our customers and have not had a bad unit yet. If you buy one, I can create a video for you on the hard drive installation process.

Here is the link to the Newegg product page. Hope this helps.
