HP d530 PC - SATA Harddisk - Chassis does not close any more

Hello!

I've just installed an SATA harddisk to my HP d530 PC. It is located in the harddisk slots above the existing IDE drive.

The harddisks in the HP chassis are rotated by 90°, so the connections are on the left side. When I attach the SATA data cable, I can't close the chassis because the plug of the SATA cable is too long. Are there different SATA cable types which have a smaller plug?

Is this problem common to you?
Thanks in advance!

Martin

Martin,

They make SATA cables with a 90 degree connection on one end.
Hopefully this will solve your clearance problems with your case.

Here is a link to website that carries these.

They work great and fit tight against the drive.

Hope this helps,

Eric

Did not see second sata harddisk


To know if your Hardisk is detected follow this steps:

In Windows XP

1. Open Control Panel
2. Go to Administrative Tools
3. Open Computer Management
4. Double Click Storage
5. Open Disk Management

All the list of Hardisk is here, your hardisk is not formatted that's why, so you have to proceed to format just right click that unformatted hardisk and choose format, specify the label for your hardisk or simply leave it blank.

How do I add a second HD


Turn the machine off
Open the case
Look to see if there are IDE connector (Wide Flat cable with a connector usually grey)
If this is not present look for a SATA connector usually a small red or blue wire similar to a cat5e network cable
Scew your HDD in place in the rack connect the cable either IDE or SATA
If you have an IDE drive look for a 4 pin female connector from the power supply
If you have a SATA drive look for the connector from the power supply
Once all is connected then reboot you computer typically your bios should auto detect it.

Let me know what happens from here

I need to add space to my compaq presario desk top. i don't know how to on this computer. the model# SR5034X


If you want to increase cpu speed so you need to increase RAM memory.
You can fix it on motherbord of desktop cpu.
But if you have low space on disk storage partition so you can add space to desktop with 2 method.
(1) you can add harddisk to desktop cpu with sata or IDE .SATA harddisk is best if your motherbord support SATA.
You can add harddisk as you like for example 80 GB or 160 Gb.
(2) If you want to add RAM memory for speed reson you can purchase new RAm and fix it in memory module slot on motherbord.
There is 2 type on
RAM in currently.
DDR1 and DDR2

you can add RAM memory like 512 MB or 1GB or more.

Does my d530 CMT have a SATA connector?


Answers to your questions:
1. Yes
2. Very likely
3. a Google search should show you what the connectors look like.
4 HP/Compaq do a good job of providing documentation. Go to hp.com and put in your system information. You should be able to locate motherboard diagrams there. If you can't let me know and I'll try to locate them.

Hp laptop and system


OK there could be many reasons behind it
1) If your CD is booting  and the harddisk is not  it means  that maybe your harddisk has moved  form its loacatio  try to place it in its location

2)U might be having a SATA hdd  
   if that is the case maybe ur  BIOS settings have changed and you might have to enter the BIOS and  change the settings there.

If u cannot find the settings pls post back I would be happy to  provide the settings
