Answers :

There are several BIOS updates for your system. I will give you a link at the bottom. Did you install your HD drive as a master,slave or CS(cable select). I know Compaq uses CS in all of their systems. Do this first before the BIOS update. Hope fully this should help you fix your problem. Also what are the requirements for your HD Drive? Does your system meet these requirements? For your system f10 is how you get into the BIOS.

F10 should get you into the BIOS. Start tapping after cold startup
