Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Cannot find the socket for the sata cable on drive or mobo. pc wont boot until sata cable reconnected..
Not sure about gx150, thought there was a connector? is the drive in an encloser case with a port? sometimes drives are sold without a case which has the socket. the drive itself is sometimes bare...i am just guessing at a possilbe reason why you cannot find a connection.

Now I understand your problem. I just spoke with the Linksys sales department and at this time there is no option for a low-profile bracket for that model. He also did not know of any third party products that would fit. I found this company with many low profile cards and brackets, maybe one will be able to screw onto the card even though it would not be an exact fit.

Answers to your questions:
2. Very likely
3. a Google search should show you what the connectors look like.
4 HP/Compaq do a good job of providing documentation. Go to hp.com and put in your system information. You should be able to locate motherboard diagrams there. If you can't let me know and I'll try to locate them.

Hmmm--when you went into the BIOS setup, your first boot device should be CD. The next your hard drive. The other boot devices should be set to disabled. Now if you have a third boot device as a network device, then your computer is not seeing the CD or the Hard drive--you have a problem. If all the drives are hooked up properly (sounds like you have that covered) then your motherboard is probably the problem.
I would try to disconnect all your stuff except the CD. Try it on the first IDE channel (set it either as cable select or master). If that fails, try it on the other channel. Do you have a second CD to swap out?
Still no boot? Bad motherboard.
