You can fairly easily add the SATA interfaces by using a SATA PCI card. These are available at very low costs from Amazon and any decent component supplier.

Your PSU will not have a SATA power connector so you may need a molex to SATA converter as well

There are no internal connectors for SATA devices in a Dell Dimension 2400, only IDE. If you have SATA drives that you really want to use, I suggest purchasing an external drive case/dock that converts SATA to usb 2.0. On the other hand, if you are referring to the SATA power connector from a new power supply, you don't need to connect this to anything. If I misunderstood your question, please explain it a little more to me.

Re-wiring a DELL dhm


The wires will only connect in the right places. If you haven't been inside before the problem started, then there is nothing to worry about in that respect, cables don't just unplug themselves. There is a very good chance that the power supply itself has failed. They aren't expensive and are easy to fit. Just take a photo of the inside before you remove the old one, it will make it easier to refit the new one.

How 2 install a triple format sata internal drive in a gateway desk top


check for a open sata port on your computer. if there is one connect the hard drive with a SATA cable to the sata port on the motherboard.
connect the sata power to the hard drive or a molex to the hard drive if you do not have one. do not connect sata and molex to the hard drive together. if you don't have a molex connect you will need a molex to sata power adapter.
after connecting the hard drive to your pc. turn it on. in windows xp it will auto detect the hard drive and may prompt you to format the hard drive.

I have a dell desk top computer what type of hard drive i need for and what type of monitor i need


Since you've not specified whether your Dell supports SATA or IDE. Please open it and check it whether it has IDE Slots and cable or
SATA cable and slots.

For a monitor just buy any, either flat screen or Cathod Ray

I WANT TO OPEN THE LACIE 500 GB HDD AND USE THE HDD IN MY DESK TOP


Go for it. There's a chance the internal drive will be PATA (IDE) but odds are good it's a SATA drive with standard connections.

Make sure your PC has connections for SATA drives, and you'll need to buy a SATA cable since the one in the LaCIE case won't connect from your drive to your motherboard.

Dll gx280 case


first off does the motherboard have both sata and ide connections or just sata or just ide? (sata are small about maybe 1/2 inches in length and 1 mm wide and a ide connection is approx 5 inches long with about 4 inches long with over 100 pins and about 1/2 inches wide) i know that the opliplex 520 are nothing but sata so if it uses the same mobo as the 520 and you have ide then its imposible to install on your computer unless it either has a ide connection or you get a ide pci or pci-e controller card and install that onto the computer. but for the most part a ide connection needs a ide cable and a sata connection needs a sata cable.
