Can i put Nvidia 7300 SE 512mb 64bit video card on hp dc7600sff with 240 watt power suply will it work and not burn or overheat power suply or some other part?please help


Yes you should be able to install that card in the DC7600 as it is a low profile graphics card, however i would think about upgrading the power supply as 240 watts might be a struggle for the computer.

Will an optical drive from cq62 fit mine?


I sort of see your reasoning, but NO.
HP Compaq DC7700 Ultra-Slim Desktop PC, and Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC DVD burner drive?

Until I compared both units I would have stated NO.

Now that I have THANK YOU. I just learned something,

Referring back to the photo view, of the Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC's DVD burner drive shown, the REAR view shows the connectors for the SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The connectors use the same L-shape design, and size that a SATA unit for a desktop computer, would use.

Case design looks to be similar also.

I believe you are Correct.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Hi. I need to purchase a DVD burner for my Compaq dc7100 and need to know what brands will fit my computer. Thanks, **** P

I've checked on the specs of dc7100, and it shows that it has multibay optional for 12.7mm removable drives .

I've difficulties finding the exact DVD compatible for dc7100 since it seems that it's already been discontinued.

However, these are the closest match that I've found. Kindly click to double check the specification if it matches your computer:

HP Multibay DVD+RW Drive
HP Slim 8x SATA supermulti LightScribe Drive

Is there any way to add a dvd r+- writer drive to my compaq 1503sw. If so, what should I look for to fit my expansion drive

You can find internal DVD-R+/- about anywhere, Walmart, Best Buy. It just has to have an IDE connection which is very common. You could also look into USB external drives. Average price is around $35.
