How to hard drive removal
The HHD in this compaq 1800 laptop model 1456 hvqlin do not work after boot up to icons. it will do nothing after I cannot set the clock and the owner want it clean. it maybe a small gb hd its better to install a larger HD and install new iOS wXP or w7 thank you
I am confused with your model. If it is a Compaq 1800 you can get the service manual from here As for running Win XP or Win 7, I don,t think that would be a good thing. The CPU as well as the memory requirement are most likely not met for an upgrade. This is not to say it can't be done, but you really would have to customize XP to a bare minimum. Considering a version of Linux for this computer might be a better idea. Hope this helps, good luck.
