How do I find out what kind of drive fits in the slots like power and data on my computer.
if you could please explain a bit more im not sure what your trying to ask .
But i will take a guesss at it =D are u trying to find out if your drive connection u have as in IDE or Sata? maybe this will help:http://www.ackadia.com/computer/images/sata-vs-ide-bg.jpg
post back if asap. ps. the big ribon cable is IDE the small red cable is Sata
I have the IDE one I believe.I was just asking because I have asked my dad for two gigs of ram and a new drive for my PC.
If you're gonna put in a new Hard Drive, why don't u try puttin in one with an external casing? this works by means of its own power and also on usb. the external can then be used as a normal hard drive, except it can be used as mobile storage as well....
I am looking for one that is big on storage but cheap so an external wont be in the option.
If you enter bios during post and select advanced bios selection it will tell you your hdd configuration.
You can also click 'My Computer' right click on the HDD display and select properties from there. I believe that will tell you what you need to know.
