SOURCE: How to remove the hard drive from my dell

Hi there.
Firstly remove the power cord from the back of the desktop, then turn the unit round so the back of it is facing you, on the right hand side there may be a couple of screws and plastic catches, remove the screws and lift the plastic clips so the side panel opens up, once that is done you will be able to see the motherboard, the hard drive looks like this >>>>>e340c2b.jpegnow depending on the type of dell you have there maybe screws or green plastic strips that holds the HDD in place, if you cannot get it that way then the front panel has to be removed.
If this is the case post back and I'll tell you how remove it.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

SOURCE: Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize DVD-ROM drive as Boot Device.

Enter the Bios and under System Components find the Boot priority in the Bios and move the drive to the top of the list, also you can press F12 at Start up to select it as well. :)

I'm trying to increase hard disk space on a Dell


Hi.

The Dell Inspiron 1100 is a laptop whereas the Dell Dimension 2400 is a desktop pc.

The hard drives are incompatible because they are a different size, plus the Inspiron only supports one hard drive so you can't install a slave device. The only way to increase hard disk space is to buy a large capacity internal IDE laptop drive or an external hard drive.

Your computer cannot find a boot-able storage device, i.e. hard disk drive, to boot from. Either your hard disk drive is defective or the OS (operating system software) is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

Where is the hard drive in the dimension 2400 dell. I see the cd drives, the power supply, the cooling fan, the heatsink, the video card, the memories... so where is the hard drive?


You know the power button in the front? If you open the cover to see the insides, there is the HD that is kind of covered by a metal slot (has like holes...). Well, the HD is right next to the power button in the front, but inside.... Here is a picture. The wires are attached to the HD. yup.

I have a PC Dell Dimension 2400 with a hard 40 GB


Basically when you install a new boot drive you need to install Windows operating system on the new hard drive, also the device drivers (eg video, audio, modem, LAN etc), your programs and data. The reason programs has to be installed is because the installation process copied DLL files to the System folders and makes changes to the registry.
You can only copy your data onto the new hard disk.
To avoid copying your data to the new hard drive, you can set up the old hard drive as second hard drive (ie. slave drive), if you delete the redundant folders and leave only the data folders then you have an adddition 40Gb of disk space.

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
