: 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.
