Question about Dell Dimension 3000® Pentium® 4 2.8GHz, 256MB, 80GB, 48x CD-RW PC Desktop
I have a used Dell Dimension 3000 without windows, as I'm installing a 250 gig WD hard drive. I connect the drive, and checked bios. hard disk, and cdrom drives both show in bios, however nither disk will spin, i.e. disk won't turn. Hard disk is getting power. And sometimes when I boot up it goes to the Dell logo, and hangs. Can't figure this one out. Can someone give me an idea of what to do. Thanks....

If you mean you need to install windows, you need to set your cdrom drive as first boot device in advanced bios settings or it will try to boot into a non-existent windows. Make sure your hdd is showing as the master drive, save settings and exit bios. Re-boot pc with windows disc in cd drive and hit enter when prompted to boot from cd.
