Question about Gateway E-4300 PC Desktop
How to Install a new hard drive for gateway E 4300...I never took the old one out so I am not sure how to do this.
Rachellem775, before you install the hard drive into your computer.. you need to check the setting on the hard drive that you're going to install.. on the hard drive itself it has a sticker with the settings, you need to make the 2nd hard drive that you're going to install as a SLAVE drive.. you can check that on the sticker.. after that, you can connect the cables to the hard drive next to the main hard drive.. that would make the old hard drive as the main drive and your new harddrive as the slave drive.. you can interchange the settings, check the sticker on your hard drive.. all hard drive have that setting information..

This is an easy part if you know how to take the old one out...start first by taking the cover and then look for the hard drive that you need to change and you will see two screws on each side and they may be on a track and the back of the driver you will see a cable with color on one end and the power cable you may have also a small cable on the front if not it is ok...take all of the off and redo the process again in reverse with the new one...good luck. make sure that the pins on the new driver are the same as the old one (they are the setting for the driver). let me know if that work and please remember to rate my service so I am able to continue provide quality service and improve on it with your help. God bless
