the compaq i used to have gave me the same problem when replacing the drive. Finally found out that a new drive required a BOMID to be flashed to the harddive before it would be accepted by the compaq. BOMID was obtained from Cpmpaq site , where i provided my comaq model, etc. and obtained the BOMID install info. The BOMID is installed by using a floppy disk, and involves using parts of your serial number if I recall correctly...
Good Luck. It was very easy to install once I knew what to do, but it was a pain figuring out the Compaq website navigation
