Question about Dell (2336V) Motherboard
I have a maxtor 3.5 40g hard drive i want t connect to my dell gx280 but the cable is wrong so what cable do i need and how will it connect to motherboard.
First off does the motherboard have both sata and ide connections or just sata or just ide? (sata are small about maybe 1/2 inches in length and 1 mm wide and a ide connection is approx 5 inches long with about 4 inches long with over 100 pins and about 1/2 inches wide) i know that the opliplex 520 are nothing but sata so if it uses the same mobo as the 520 and you have ide then its imposible to install on your computer unless it either has a ide connection or you get a ide pci or pci-e controller card and install that onto the computer. but for the most part a ide connection needs a ide cable and a sata connection needs a sata cable.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test the leads that attach to your ((hard drive from the motherboard)) or replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your ((motherboard to hard drive))
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
hope this helps
