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.

Hello,

all you have to do is to simply set the jumper at the back of he hard disk, beside where the IDE cable and power enter into the hard disk.

Just keep setting till you put at the right position where the system recognizes it.

There is nothing wrong with your PC and hard drive, just set the jumper of the Hard disk and that should be all.

Take care.

Dell Optiplex Gx280 - cant detect two IDE hard drives


Hi,

You should attach two hard drives on primary ide. Set both jumpers to cable select ( or one on end is master, middle one is slave). The one at the end of the cable is where your o/s should be. You could try putting the third on seconday, along with your dvd rom.

I am adding a seagate 320 g drive to my dell 4300 dimentions.. i have one ribbon.. with black(end socket) and grey(middle socket).. i have a maxtor already installed..the jumper was set to master on slave...


First of all make sure that your maxtor drive is jumpered for cable select and connected to black connector. Make sure Seagate drive is also configured for cable select and then connect to grey connector. If the Seagate drive is brand new you will need to initialise and partition the disk once recognised by Windows

DELL 0PTIPLEX GX280 DOES NOT RECOGNIZE THE CD DRIVE


Sounds like a bad drive. But if it was me I would open the case and check to see if all cables are snug in there place (ofcourse make sure it's unplugged from power). I have seen EIDE's work them self's loose just enough to make a hard drive or CD/DVD not work. Good luck.

Dell optiplex gx280 won't boot up


you either have the boot priority in the bios off or you have improperly cabled your hard drive . perhaps you set it to boot to cd while installing the operating system and forgot to change the order back.
The floppy drive does not have to be present for the system to boot (if set to "not installed" in bios)
your boot devices are your cd/dvd rom and your harddrive.
Seeing as you've recently replaced the power supply , ime assuming you didnt dismantle the whole computer , just the power leads coming from the power supply, which means you only moved power , not data cables.
This would be the first thing to check -- power to the harddrive and cd rom, the 4 pin connector that sometimes connects to the motherboard and any data cables you might have bumped while changing the power cables. check these things and post here again.

Miss match hd on a dell gx280


Hi, I have had lots of experience installing hard drives. You never get exactly 80gb when it is partioned. Some space is utilized for other things that cannot be used. So you aren't doing anything wrong. Just another way companies can make you think your getting more then you really are.
