First find out who made the drive for Compaq, I had to use the wd software on an old compaq drive to re-write it there's something on it for compaq id's. but give it a try. i think i redid the sectors to wd.

cheers

A 4GB hard drive? You'll have trouble fitting Windows on it. I'm not sure a drive that old will even connect to the eMachines.
