There are 2 types of connections, IDE ( Top pic. The ribbon) and SATA (Bottom pic. Red Cable). If your running IDE, you could get a new motherboard (SATA supported), or just bring back your hard drive exchanging it for a IDE.

Wiring diagram for hard drive windows 7 model:lc-8360btx

Hi Jamie
A standard 3.5 inch Hard Drive has either an ATA Port or the newer SATA Port. The important point here is that they are not made specifically for Windows or Apple Mac. They are made by an outside OEM such as Hitachi, Western Digital or Seagate for example. They are all made to an interchangeable standard. They own the details for their drives & their wiring. Check your brand and look up their website to find the connection details.
Usually to connect to one of these drives (e.g. 3.5") we connect a data ribbon cable and three power wires. Ground, +12volts and +5volts. Thats it. No wiring diagram. The ATA cable matches the ATA socket or the SATA matches it's socket and the power connector matches it's other half.
When a drive fails it's just a matter of getting another drive of any brand & it should take the place of the Dead Drive. The drive could be anywhere from 500gb to 3 Terabyte in capacity. The connectors are all keyed so they don't go in the wrong way.
Hope this helps.

I need to know how to retrieve my files from an old hard drive on a new laptop or desktop, how & where do i install it, the prongs don't seem to match.

You will need a few items to get data off of your old Hard-Drive.
If you have already removed the old hard-drive you'll need something like this:

to attach to another machine to extract the data.

Your old HDD will act like a external hard-drive and you can retrieve your data that way.

Hope that helps

I have a WD external hard drive and need a new power cord. model # wd2200h1u-00 where can I find one?

for those, you can use a generic power cable as long as the voltage and amperage matches the original one. Take the old one with you and head to a radioshack.

How to replace hard drive

You want to know how to replace that hard drive? Or replace your old one with that one? Well first thing to do would be to buy another. You will need to go to walmart, or best buy and buy an IDE internal hard drive. Next would be to open up your computer tower and check the old hard drive, it is the 3 an 1/2 inch wide small black box. You need to check the jumper setting on the old drive. Check they will be two rows of 4 or 5 pins, next to where the wide band ide ribbon is connected to the hard drive. There will be a plastic peice (the jumper) and inside the plastic is some metal that connects two pins. You need to check where the jumper is and compare it to the schematic on the label on top to determin if it is Master(M), Slave(S), Cable Select(CS). Now you have to look at the schematic on the new drive and change the jumpers on it to match the configuration(Master, Slave, or Cable Select) with the old drive. Now take take the ribbon and power cable from the old drive and plug in the new drive. Take out the old drive, and screw the new drive into the old hard drives place. Now insert your Windows XP, Linux, or what ever cd into your cd drive and install.
