Question about HP Pavilion a1710n (RK573AA#ABA) PC Desktop
I have this computer some one has gutted and I dont know were to plug in or what kind of wire to use for it. I have tried to look at my dell and it is kind of a different animal. Ram, hard drive and burner has been removed all I can see that is missing is the audio wire to the dvd cd writer. I just dont know were to plug it in on the mother board. There is one three prong plug with white clip but,there is a group of blue,yellow ,white and black,pluges that are grouped together and are the same shape. Kind of lost on this one. I guess you can tell that Im a novice at this but am learning every day. Thanks for you help. RoyBoy
I found the specifications to the computer and it said I am to get a sata hard drive and a sata cd/dvd burner So i guess I better save me some money. Oh and I have to get DDR 2 4200 (533 MHZ) DDR2 or PC2 5300 (667 MHZ) DDR2. Thanks for all you help. Im learning this as I go. I will send more people with questions to this sight, you ahve been a very good informer of good information. Thanks again..Royboy

Here is a link from HP for your motherboard:
Is the DVD drive a SATA drive? That is, does it have a small (approx. 3/4") connection next to the power connector or does it have an IDE 40 pin connector? If it is a SATA drive, you do not need an audio cable connection.
