Question about Computers & Internet
I'm looking to replace the fried hard drive in the computer. I noticed that there was different types of IDE hard drives. Would the following be be compatable- IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 3.5" Hard Drive ???
That would depend on the motherboard. But, if you computer was made for windows XP then I would say that should be fine. To be sure, just put the part number of the old one into your search engine and it will tell you the drive interface you need. The ATA 100 is the most likely interface you need.

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup IDE-0 means Pri master ?
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the using arrow key scroll down to advanced bios features press enter check to make sure the first boot device is set to your hard drive
IDE-1 means Pri slave ?
IDE-2 means Sec master ?
IDE-3 means Sec slave ?
IDE-0 means Pri master ?
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem
a computer needs all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
make sure the CPU central processing unit has thermal paste and dust free and is securely seated
make sure your computer ram modules are securely seated with no dust in sockets also Cmos battery has charge with no dust in the socket some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
hope this helps
