Question about Computers & Internet
Does motherboard have ata ports
It has Parallel ATA
PATA or also generally known as IDE,
101311 - Western Digital, 200-GB, 7200RPM, PATA harddrive,
105553 FIC KTBC51G
Product Views; F - Primary IDE Connector,
Left side of motherboard, near the black long Ram Memory slots.
This is where the Harddrive plugs in.
Product Views; E - Secondary IDE Connector;
Near the black long Ram Memory slots, and next to the blue Primary IDE Connector.
This is Serial ATA, or also known as SATA,
Uses this style of SATA data cable, and connector on motherboard,
(NOTE* Color does NOT matter for cable connector.
Color really doesn't matter, for a SATA connector on the motherboard, either.
You are supposed to plug the Primary SATA harddrive, into the SATA 1 connector, on the motherboard.
The beauty of SATA is, that you can plug into any Ol' SATA connector on the motherboard, that you want to.
BIOS will find the harddrive with the Operating System on it, and will find all the other SATA devices plugged into the motherboard, too )
You do NOT have SATA.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. I don't have plans to fix the emachines T5026. In my estimation it is not worth the time or trouble. I do plan on using the hard drive only to recover data from it. The emachines by the way tries to power up but cycles on and off over and over when pressing the power on button. I don't believe it is the power switch I rather believe it is the power supply but thanks again for your detailed instructions. I will let you know what success I have with installing the hard drive in the gateway machine. Regards. Andy "
In your case ATA refers to the hard drive type that connects to IDE or Enhaned IDE via a ribbon cable (now called PATA).
If you are looking for the new SATA hard drives, the answer is NO.
