Unfortunately there are no known BIOS upgrades from compaq for this board to allow for an 80GB drive, an...

The hard drive is a 60GB Seagate drive ripped from an HP Pavillion. I will try the reset button, but I have a feeling that I might be pulling the battery again.... :roll:

60GB: Asus P2B

I am trying to install a 60GB drive that has been formated with FDISK into a system using an Asus P2B motherboard (not fake version). Anyway when I turned the system on for the first time it hung at the drive detection screen. I shut it down and needed to take the battery out for a while to clear th...

questions-
Is this an OEM system? If so please post the complete model/series info.

How do you know the 40GB drive will hook up without trouble? (i.e hard drive barrier, etc.)?

The only reference that I have found that even acknowledges the existence of a Presario 7106 is Google.
Hmm thats odd, because in your thread at motherboards.org I posted the QRG for the 7106. Sometimes it helps to keep track of what you post and where you post. :wink:

If its only 1.5 to 2 years old I doubt the speaker is functional.

On startup when the Compaq splash screen comes up, you will see a blinking white cursor in the upper right hand corner. When you see that blinking cursor press the F10 key repeatedly.
