Reread your post. What is missing? Did you read the red note below where you posted this question?

Since there are a gazillion Compaq towers, what do you think we may need?

You offered no details.

WAG here, but goto the Compaq support website and locate your model#. There find the details for HD replacement( I assume new HD), that's the same info as adding 2nd or swapping out old HD. In most cases, if no screws are present o open case, locate a "latch", depress and slide side cover back or up to remove. If you have a model that's a "clam type" you need to open as if like a book, spread the case open. I hope this helps. Once again, it always helps if you provide details of your PC as much as possible.
