How to change hard drive

Here is a link to the Compaq service manual. It will instruct you on how to access the case and, and how to remove and replace the Hard Drive.

Remember that after you replace the hard drive, if it is the primary, you will need to reload the operating system using wither the support disks supplied with the unit or with the recovery disks you made at the time of purchase. Without those, you will not be able to operate the PC once the drive is replaced.

My computer started freezing for no apparent reason and at random times. All scans came came back clean, and I had plenty of memory available. Now all of a sudden, when I turn it on, I have no video input...

I'd try playing with the graphics card - if it's a card and not on-board, try removing & re-inserting it. Also, try removing the card altogether and using the on-board video controller - if that solves it, the card may need to be replaced.

Also, try running a RAM check. You can use something like Memtest86 ( burn it on a CD and boot up from it. Even if you have plenty of RAM, a single broken bit can ruin the whole thing. There's also a scenario where you just have to remove and re-insert all the RAM sticks from the motherboard due to static buildup - it would cause the computer to not do anything when you press the power button.

If all of these still don't work, and you say you have absolutely no video output, it could be a problem with the power supply, processor or motherboard. The only way to check is to test replacements for each - replace the power supply and try turning it on, then replace the CPU and try, then mobo (though it's a lot of work).

Good luck

I have a Compaq Presario, model #: SR2150NX W/120GB HD

You should be able to add a SATA drive to that machine (IDE should also be available to you). The spec drive in your machine is a 120GB, you may get a decent increase in speed if you use a newer SATA hard drive with a fresh install of Windows on it and simply put the existing drive as the slave or drive 2.

Remove arrow from shortcut items


If you are referring to the Shortcut overlay, there are several methods that can remove, replace or customized it.

In Windows XP:
Perhaps the easiest would be to download, install and configure using Tweak UI for XP ;

Alternately, edit your Registry. Expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. Highlight "lnkfile. Delete the Registry Value IsShortcut REG_SZ. Rebbot

In Windows Vista:
Probably the easiest would be to download, install and configure using Frameworkx’s Windows Vista Shortcut Overlay Remover .

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
