  1. Hey not sure where to put this at but I'm looking for any help on replacing my hard drive for my computer... I have an eMachine W4065 (yea yea i know its junk thats why i'm upgrading) and i bought a new maxtor hard drive for it... when i disassembled the old hard drive it looks totally different from the one i bought... the one i bought is all enclosed in a little black square and has the plugs. my old hard drive though has circuit boards attached to it and everything else. Will the drive i bought be able to work somehow that i haven't noticed or did i just waste my money? thanks for any help :(

    Some older drives have an exposed circuit board on the bottom.
    How old is the computer?
