Question about Computers & Internet
You should be able to - but just as important as an open bay, is a connection to the motherboard and power is necessary. It would also matter which type of drive you have, IDE or SATA. If Sata, and the computer has Sata power, it should be a simple matter to add a Sata cable to an open connector on the motherboard. If IDE, you'd either need to have an open IDE port on the motherboard, or an open connection on an IDE cable. If there is no open port, but an open connection, you'd just have to set the drive to be the Slave, and it should otherwise work fine.
Realize you will probably need to partition and format the hard drive for the system to be able to utilize it.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or
to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical
the leads from your

just replace them they could be faulty
