There 'should' be screws that hold the hard drive in place, usually, 4 of them. Have you removed all of the screws? Is there some other impediment that is preventing the drive from being removed? Post back and let us know.

Look at the back of the computer. One side panel removes. (Access Panel) There are two Thumbscrews to loosen on the Access Panel, then the panel is lifted off, or brought straight out.

Compaq Deskpro EN 1GHz. power supply is ok. But not start with power on button. Green LED on mother board is on. How can I start this with start button (I think motherboard board problem.


Unplug it from the wall. Remove the side panel. Look for a small circular battery (similar to watch battery). Remove the battery for 30 seconds. Replace the battery, plug it back in. This should reset the bios. Green light on the board does not necessarily say good power supply as well. Very likely motherboard or power supply.

Have old compaq Deskpro EN ENS815EC733 M1BU


I would buy a cheap usb card to fit into a pci slot on the old computer.
Otherwise you would need a serial cable (if your laptop has a serial port) if not it would be a serial to usb plus the software to transfer, i would say far too much trouble.
A usb card is a couple £/$

UPGRADING FROM PENTIUM 3 PROCESSOR TO PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR


To upgrade from a Pentium 3 to a Pentium 4 processor, you would have to replace the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor has more pins on it than the Pentium 3 and would not sit in a Pentium 3 motherboard.

Red blinking light when on my compaq deskpro en pc


Probably your power supply. They are pretty cheap to replace. If it's plugged into a power bar then try plugging it directly into a wall socket just to make sure it isn't your power supply.
