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.

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 add a second hard drive (SATA) to a Dell insperon 530. Where does it connect to the motherboard?


Every SATA enabled motherboard has atleast 2 SATA ports. Trace the first SATA cable and you'll find another port closer. If your Optical drive is connected to it, and if you can find an IDE port on your motherboard, buy an IDE to SATA convertor and plug it in.

First make sure you have the correct drivers installed, go to the Belkin website to get the latest drivers for your device.

Next make sure that your router is set to broadcast, and that is in Wireless G mode. You can find that information at the router manufacturers website.
