Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

Cant install window XP. showing messge harddisk is not powered on. pleade advice me what to do. thnx


Answers :

What type of hard drive do you have? Check that it has the proper power cords, and that it's properly detected in the BIOS. Some SATA Hard drives have both, a SATA power and a traditional 4 pin power plug, and you should only use one of them at a time.

Sounds to me like the motherboard has not properly detected this hard drive yet, or it's a RAID volume and windows doesn't have the driver to install it yet.

Post back with more detailed specs and I can help you further.
