I have a compaq 5441 presario nad trying to install a new maxtor 40 gig hard drive.I can go into the bios page by clicking f-10 upon boot up but it will not reconize any hard drives,like compaq is trying to hide it from me.I do not want the new one as a slave but a master. Have restore disc and all of the drivers with the hard drive but it will not reconize the new drive.
The old drive works good but it is getting cluttered up.Contacted compaq and got the general runa round and any help would sure be apppreciated.
