Question about HP Pavilion a350n PC Desktop

1 Answer

I bought an HP 8724f desktop pc. I want to put the 60 gbyte hard drive from my old pc into the new hp. Can't figure out where the cables are. Plenty of power connectors but no ribbon cables to connect the new drive as a slave. Thanks Dan

    It was helpful. Looks like I will have to just pull the data off the other drive and install it on the Hp drive. Thanks.

If the new PC is a SATA drive and you cannot install an old Parallel hard drive in that computer. You must have a SATA drive. That is why you see no ribbon cable. SATA drives do not use the ribbon cable type connection.

Hp iq524 touchsmart recovery cds will not load windows on new hard drive


Try deleting the partitions. You can use any Windows install disc to accomplish this if the HP won't.

For manual deletion you need is fdisk.exe and possibly format.com and at the command prompt.

Hello i ave hp compac dc7600 and i want upgrade for a best processor


Hey this PC is pretty old.

What is the current chipset in it?

I have checked the specs of the Pc and it looks like this the best processor you can put int it

Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache,
800 MHz FSB)

Not too bad but a little behind what is currently available with the i5 - i7 models.

Check what your full model number is and region then head to this page:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12253_div/12253_div.HTML#Configurable%20Components%20-%20Select%20Models%20%28localized%20by%20Regions%29

It will show you what can and cannot be put int the system.

Install hard drive in hp a1310n


You need to do a number of things:

1) You need to carefully remove the door and the whole front face of the desktop (the front face opens like a door it swings open from left to right)

2) Once you have the front pannel open take a philips screwdriver and unscrew the memory card readers that is show in front of the deskop (there is one screw holding this card reader in place probably on the upper right hand corner.

3) Carefully remove the card reader by jiggiling it lightly till the unit comes off.

4) After you remove the card reader, you will immediatly see the hard drive directly behind the reader that you just removed.

5) Now look inside the desktop (because you removed the right hand side door: the big one that alows you to see inside the pc) and remove all cables from this hard drive before you read #6 below

6) Inside the desktop, Locate the hard drive, put your hand on the back of it and lift on the green plastic part along side the hard drive where you can see the harddrive screw which is on a metal track stopped by a green plastic stopper.

7) Lift the green plastic stopper and push the back of the hard drive to the front of the desktop.

8) Unscrew all screws from old hard drive and rescrew them on the new one in the exact same spots at the old hard drive.

9)Once you finish screwing on the screws, slide the new hard drive back from where the old one was

10) reconnect all data cables and power supply cable.

11) follow steps 7 thru 1 to put unit back together again. Go thru steps 7 thru one backwards

I hope this helps

F7 hard drive problem the PC has two 360 gig hard drives. Which one is the primary? Will a WD serial # WCAV 5463220018 3.5 inch SATA hard drive 1000 Gbyte be compatible with my PC?


If your PC has SATA connections yes you can use SATA, but not a SATA 2.5 which only fits a laptop! When you use 2 drives one must be set by jumpers on rear of drive to master..... the slave drive (2nd hard drive) must also be set to slave by same jumpers.

Changing hard drive


For some strange reason the HP website does not allude to which drive came with your machine. I would assume that information is in your original shipping manifest, but the site does offer a video or instructions on how to change your hard drive, just remember you will have to "clone" your old drive to the new one so all your features will be enabled in your system.

Take a look at this:
