replacing a laptop hard drive? Answered

Hello boys and girls, this weekend my trusty laptop had failed on me.  After cursing up a storm and mashing every button possible i finally found the "restore" CDs of my laptop hd partion.  I got it restored to factory fresh and was ready to rock and roll when i get an error yesterday stating that "SMART" has detected iminate drive failure or some crap like that.  After searching i uploaded new firmware for the hd hopeing it would go away.  It didn't.  I ran a self test and it said bad Hard drive. My question is as follows.  How hard is it to replace a laptop hard drive (other than switching out drives), if I burn a copy of the restore CDs will it install windows on the new hard drive or do i have to send it to HP/ buy windows At this point i am not worried about loosing any data (done did that twice already) just want a computer that doesnt pop that error message everytime i reboot. My laptop is a Compaq Presario F700 and i had it for almost 3 yrs to the day

Compaq and HP laptop power cord compatibility? Answered

The plug for my HP laptop's AC/DC adapter has a loose connection, so I am using my old Compaq adapter.  All the specs are the same; 65w, 18.5v, and 3.5a, except for the input amps, 1.7 on one and 1.6 on the other (probably just because of efficiency).   The plugs are the same.  I just wanted to double check.  Is it okay to use the Compaq(actually says HP on it) instead of the HP one? Thanks in advance! AI

Where to get parts for my laptop?

I have a Compaq Presario 2200 laptop that was given to me. It has a dead hard drive and a dead CD/DVD drive. I would like to replace both of the drives for under 40 dollars. I am happy to replace them with used (but still working) hardware. The hard drive doesn't need to be over 20GB and the CD/DVD drive doesn't have to be super high speed. Unfortunately Compaq did what is called a tattoo on the hard drive. This means that the hard drive must be replaced with a compaq hard drive not just any old laptop hard drive. Because of this I was hoping to get an old compaq pressario 2200 laptop that has a dead screen or dead motherboard that still has a good hard drive and CD drive so that I can salvage. I looked on EBAY but haven't had any luck so far. Are there any other online places where I could get another old compaq pressario 2200 laptop to salvage parts from? Does anyone on instructables have one? Thanks for the help. Anyone who helps me get the parts I need gets best answer.

I have "compaq vocalyst keyboard" without PS/2 nor midi. Is there any way to make an USB adaptator to use it ? Answered

So, I own an old Compaq Vocalyst keyboard (very similar to that one cgi.ebay.com.my/COMPAQ-VOCALYST-KEYBOARD-M-N-E03783001_W0QQitemZ300210062625QQcmdZViewItemQQptZPCA_Mice_Trackballs exept that mine is AZERTY). The plug was designed to be pluged into a specific Motherboard (that I trown away several years Ago). When pluged onto the old motherboard, this keyboard was used as the PC Speaker, it had a microphone (jack) plug and a hearphones (jack) plug. Is there any way to build an adapter to make that keyboard usable on nowdays computers (some USB or PS/2 conector) ?
