Question about Gateway (M520HD80G) Hard Drive
Bought a new hard drive for my gateway GM5478 computer but forget where it gets connected inside.
If the old one is still conected you can connect it the same way if not here is how to::
Well firstly they are 2 types IDE (large connector) and SATA (small connector)
of an ide cable has 3 jacks 1 for the main board and 2 for IDE drives
2 drive must be set to master and the other to slave
Set the drives by using the jumper on the back the instructions are written on the drives
Connect the Ide Cable and then the power and turn you system on
IF ITS SATA
connect the sata cable to both hard drive and main board
connect the power cable and your done!!
NB:: sata ports are labeled SATA 1 SATA 2 etc
IDE are LABELED IDE 1 IDE 2
Ide is a large grey cable black connector SATA is usually orange or red and small
