That hard drive is a SATA drive. New computers have the SATA connectors on the motherboard, however older computers do not. If you want to add that drive to your system, buy a SATA drive dock that connects via USB.

The following link is for reference only, it is not a recommendation for this particular docking station

You may need the SATA drivers if XP is older. Get a newer version or download the drivers and press F6 during the setup when it asks if you require 3rd party array software (array controller).

My Dell PC scan says that my Samsung SP2504C hard drive is about to fail and should be replaced. Is this something I can do?

Replacing the hard drive involves the following process:
  1. Turn off and unplug the computer
  2. Remove the two screws from the left panel (facing the front of the tower)
  3. Slide the left panel back and to the left to remove it
  4. Unplug both power and data from the hard drive
  5. Unscrew the hard drive (You may need also remove the right panel to get to additional screws)
  6. Slide hard drive out
  7. Slide in new hard drive.
  8. Screw in new hard drive in approximately the same fashion as previous hard drive was screwed in
  9. Plug in power and data
  10. Re-install panel
  11. Plug computer in and boot

However, if this is your main or only hard drive, you will need to install your Operating system and all of your software and files from scratch. It may be possible to preserve them, but that's often risky and requires a bit more work. If this is your main hard drive, you probably want to consult an expert on having the old drive contents moved to the new drive.

I have a compaq witha samsung hd M/NSP2504C, S/N S09QJ1ULB30333. What are the speed and buffer specifications and which hard drive would you recommend for a compatable replacement or slave.

Samsung SP2504C is a 250 GB hard disk drive using the new SATA-300 interface, which allows a maximum theoretical transfer rate of 300 MB/s. Its main specs also include an 8 MB buffer, 7,200 rpm rotation speed and support to NCQ (Native Command Queuing). In this review we checked the performance of Samsung SP2504C installed on a motherboard using a regular SATA-150 port and also on a motherboard using the new SATA-300 port.
This very same hard disk drive is also available with a 200 GB capacity, being called SP2004C. Both belong to SpinPoint P120 series from Samsung.

Sorry, but if your hard disk fell down and now isn't regognized by the computer the most possible situation is that the disk is destroyed.
