SOURCE: My hard drive is failing on an IBM NetVista 8305

I've had a quick look a a photo of your motherboard and it looks like it supports both SATA and PATA IDE devices.

Have a look inside the tower, if you current HDD is connected via a fairly broad grey ribbon cable, its using a PATA IDE interface - the older fashioned one.

If its connected with a fairly narrow flat red coloured cable, then its a SATA interface.

Remember to set the jumper settings on your new drive to match those on your old one.

Monitor screen shows all sorts of colors in line patterns.

with the information I gathered IBM netvista does not features a video card, it is inbuilt. So it shares your system memory. just open the sysyetm chassis and take out the RAM module and clean the contact edge with a rubber eraser (pencil eraser). Re insert the RAM module and try again.

If the problem persists. try changing your memeory module(s).

IBM NetVista unable to bootup

This happens when the reset button inside is stuck. If the system is under warranty. Opening the case will void warranty. If it is out of warranty.... Open the cabinet and you can find a chunk of wires crowded in to a point on the motherboard. If you care fully inspect you will find a pair of pin (jumper pin) marked "RESET". If there is some obstacle that is shorting the contact, remove it and offcourse clean the dust particles or other material that could cause trouble. This should solve the problem
