Makes me wonder if changing the cmos battery reset bios to defaults and it needs a different setting for the HD. If it is the original HD and Win 7 Compaq might be able to help with the correct settings.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

What problems were you experiencing that prompted you to change the cmos battery?

It's also possible that while you were inside the case you unintentionally loosened or disconnected a drive cable.

I've found that the plugs on SATA hard drives can easily be disturbed, both power and signal.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
