Compaq hdd replacement Tags: Presario Hard Drives Compaq Laptops Last response: January 26, 2010 6:47 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share Girkshnip January 26, 2010 5:19:12 PM Is there a way around Compaq's proprietary crap to install a different HDD? I have a Presario 2195US. The HDD is almost dead. I have other HDDs that I can use but the proprietary Compaq crap is not allowing me to install them.
