Add second hard drive

There are three variants for this case: the mini-tower (which you say you don't have), the "Small Form Factor", and the "Ultra-Slim Desktop".

The "Small FOrm Factor" has an internal 3.5" bay that will support a second HDD.

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 not take restore disk

Then it looks like you have either a faulty hard drive, or a corrupt windows installation..
If you cant boot your PC, you may need to buy a new hard drive.
You can fit your old hard drive later to recover any files you dont want to loose, you can do this internally or with a usb hard drive caddy

My pc tells me that I'm running out of hard drive

You can use either.

You can also use external portable hard disk, you can move all your software and stuff to it.

Better would be installing a new operating system to new hard **** with larger capacity, it will make your system fast.

You can also fit hard disk in your computer PC cabinet, you will just need to set it as "Slave" or secondary hard disk, to do this, setting is available on the hard disk.

Want to add an internal hard drive to the hp d530 compaq. Is there any other way to fit it, besides removing floppy drive?

it a slimline small form factor design and unfortunately you will not have a second 3.5" bay. I would recommend using a usb floppy because the use of a floppy drive is quite limited now

The motherboard of your computer has two IDE and two SATA connections.
There is no upper limit of the drive size (at least nothing you have to worry about if you have WInXP, Vista or Linux installed)

Attention!!! - I heard from many people that HP (Compaq) has disabled the SATA connectors on your motherboard (ASUS A7V8X-LA)!!!
If you want to be on the safe side (and I would definitely recommend that) go and get an IDE drive. There are many good drives around with 500GB of storage.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

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.
