The easiest way to know this is opening up the computer with a philips screwdriver and verifying if you can see S-ATA ports on the system board. They look like the red and black connectors on the following picture: http://www.pcper.com/images/reviews/98/board_sata.jpg

if you can see those connectors, your system supports it. in that case, you just have to connect the disk (don't forget to connect a power connector as well, these connectors are mostly black)

New hard drive operating system not found


The reason why you cannot install Windows on your hard drive is this model Sony has a SATA disk controller.
The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP.The FIX.Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

Hello! I dropped my Lacie Brick (300GB, the blue one, bought in 2006 - that's all I can remember, I don't have it here right now) and now, of course, the HD is broken. I lost my data, but I've been...


If the disk-drive was LARGER than 500GB, it definitely would be a SATA drive; nobody makes IDE disk-drives larger than 500GB.

How about getting your friend to help you open the case?

Given that it is four years old, it probably pre-dates most SATA disk-drives.

Or, take it to a computer-store, and have them open it, and sell you a brand-new (and thus more "reliable") disk-drive?

I want to increase the storage capacity my Hard disk.


hi,

You can use SATA hard disk.

you said you already have 40gb. so, your pentium 4 mother board can work with full performance with upto 80 gb.

My suggestion for you is to get another 40 gb and install it ,so it makes 80 gb as total.

Other option is , There are external hard disks available for reasonable cost. you can go for it.

Your RAM is ok too.

Hope my info helps you.
Bye.
