It would be helpful if we knew what the Dell model is? A HDD is a HDD is a HDD, I think Shakespeare said that?

Hi, I have destop[ dell pentium R 4 cpu 3 GHz 1.99 GB of ram and 40 GB rom . I want to now if can change the hard disk and put another of 160 GB. tanks you carlos.


A) If you have the Restoration Disk (CD), or a full installation disk of the Windows operating system, the answer is yes.

B) If you have an image backup program, such as Norton Ghost, Acronis True Image, or DriveImage XML, for example, the answer is yes.

The Windows operating system is copied over to the new harddrive.

It would be easier, and more cost effective to just install the 160GB harddrive as a Slave drive.

I don't know if your harddrive is an IDE (PATA) unit, or a SATA unit.

Here is more information on installing either an IDE harddrive, or a SATA harddrive, as a Slave drive in a desktop computer,

1) IDE {PATA} harddrive:

1A) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMTOgt3UiB4


2) SATA harddrive:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCgFYNLzn18&NR=1

IDE, also known as PATA is the older style of technology.
SATA is the newer style.

(Parallel ATA
Serial ATA )

The beauty of SATA is not only the faster speed, but if you connect a SATA cable (Data cable) to ANY SATA connector on the motherboard, BIOS will find the device.

BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) will find the harddrive with the operating system on it, first.
Then it will recognize that you have a second SATA harddrive also.

(BIOS looks at both SATA harddrives.
When it finds the one with the operating system on it, BIOS will disregard the other SATA harddrive)

Compter will not start up , it only sits at the Dell Logo with the bar not fully loaded


Pull any USB related (Example: memory stick) and disconnect the ethernet network cable out.

Pull the power cord from the computer for 20 seconds and power up the computer.

Some older computer does not boor with USB memory inserted.

In correct setting on the CMOS may set to boot OS from network. Check cmos and make sure it's boot for your local harddrive.
