If you bought your PC at Wal-Mart, there are only IDE connections on the motherboard. You can go all the way to 1TB (1000GB) but you must find it in an IDE format. If that is too hard to find, Best Buy carries 500GB and 750GB IDE hard drives. This will also depend on the operating system installed. Windows XP and later will support almost any size HD granted you have the proper hardware and service pack updates

How to replace video card in hp pavilion a305w


Your desktop has integrated video. You cannot replace it, but you can buy an expansion card and install it. Your pc should have 2 free PCI slots for this. Unless you have installed something else. Just get a PCI video card.

Why does my computer shut off by itself? it is a hp pavilion a305 pc desktop. we tried cleaning all the dust out but it didn't help


HP skimps on powers supplies which causes them to run at near-capacity and eventually fail. That case should accept a standard ATX supply but if buying on eBay (suggested-lots cheaper) check with seller for compatibility. Do NOT replace the old supply with the same power rating; choose one with 50% or greater capacity; i.e. replace 250W with 350-400W. It won't cost hardly any premium or use more power, just run under less stress.

Computer problem


Hello,

If you are referring the green or amber light on the front of the case, it could either be the power led or the hard drive activity led. If its the hard drive activity light, it usually just blinks when a program accesses the hard drive.

Thanks
