Check Computer Management / Disk Management. Windows on Windows XP, Probably the Drive needs formatting first and partitioning before it will visible on My Computer. By Default the new Hard Drive is "Unpartitioned / Unallocated". So acess disk Management to format and partition the Hard Drive.

To access the computer management and disk management and create and partition under disk management, Check Videos for guide :

Hello
If this is a win 7 upgrade you need to have xp installed first,then you can install win 7.

If not,then in the boot order change to cd dvd then hdd,if you have two hdd make sure your primary is first.

Last,if you have a xp disc boot from that and do a delete partion and format the hdd.Then try win 7

I need to reinstall ethernet driver on my desktop but it will not connect to the internet.


If this problem is in direct relation to the heading,
Dell Dimension E510 Desktop PC, here is the download page for the Ethernet driver,

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIMENSION%205150/E510&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Download to the computer you are on now, if it has a CD burner optical drive.
Burn this driver to a blank CD-R disk.

(I advise do not use a CD-R/W disk, because it can be written over. Do not put anything else on this disk but driver/s. Label the center of the disk)

Now start the Dell, wait for Windows to fully load, put this disk in the optical drive.
Left-click on Start>My Computer.

Go to to the drive letter that corresponds with the optical drive the CD disk is in, and Double-click on the drive letter.

Follow the Installation Wizard's instructions.

Dell dimension e510 won't turn on


Unplug the power cable from the power supply in your computer and reinsert it. If you still have nothing, most likely a dead power supply.

My dell E510


Both of you could try going to control panel/add new hardware and follow it through. Most likely the second HD is still raw - not formatted -hence doesn't show because as far as windows is concerned it isn't there.

Try that first

Hard drive installation


You should be able to install that drive. The biggest variable is if it is a SATA or PATA drive. This model was built for SATA drives, but I think you may be able to get a PATA drive to work with the right adapters.

For the step by stem directions see the link below. It will take you right to the Dell support page. Refer to the "Adding a Second Hard Drive" section.
