Hi, you can only use an upgrade disk for win98 if you have win95. If you do not want to purchase an OS, look into linux. I've been very happy with openSUSE and Ubuntu.

Installed new hard drive in compaq evo D5S.. refuses to read drive


If the new drive was a drive that is brand new, the system must initialize it first, before it can place a system on it. Also, it must be configured as either slave, if piggy back to the one installed or master if it is a replacement or on its own controller lead. Run Discmanagement to initialize the drive before formatting.
Hope that helps.

My pc tells me that I'm running out of hard drive


You can use either.

You can also use external portable hard disk, you can move all your software and stuff to it.

Better would be installing a new operating system to new hard **** with larger capacity, it will make your system fast.

You can also fit hard disk in your computer PC cabinet, you will just need to set it as "Slave" or secondary hard disk, to do this, setting is available on the hard disk.

Salesman is right. It's built slim for space, not efficiency. It was built for those with tiny rooms.
Sad thing is, buying hard drives etc. for laptops cost a lil more.

Trying to wipe the hard disk of an old Compaq Evo


You message cut out. It's very difficult if not impossible to wipe a hard drive when you're using that hard drive. You need to get a program like Gparted or Disk Manager. The first is free and can be downloaded.

A standard combo drive or a DVD burner will be a great replacement for your machine. Make sure it is the same type of drive that your system uses (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA).

Openign the case of evo d500


I just worked on one. You have to make sure the buttons on each side are fully pushed in, then grab onto it and pull forwards while kind of shaking it. It came off straight upwards. Hope it works for you. Good luck. I don't think it had the option to add another drive but I wasn't looking so I could be mistaken.
