Question about Dell Dimension E510 Dual Core 2.8 Ghz (847403171179) PC Desktop
I have a Seagate 60 gb hard drive that I want to install into my dell E510. Is it possible?
You didn't really give me enough information to work with but I'll give it a shot. It is possible to install pretty much any internal hard drive into you Dell E510. But, you have to figure out weather your Dell needs a SATA or IDE input for the hard drive. Look at the hard drive in your computer, if the cable connecting the hard drive to the mother board looks like this http://www.gshop.com.au/images/ide_133_cable.jpg then it is IDE. If it looks like this http://sierra-cables.com/SATA/images/SATA-Signal-Cable-1.jpg then it is SATA. You mainly only have to worry about if it is SATA or not because some mother boards do not support SATA. All mother boards support an IDE input however.

You should be able to install that drive. The biggest variable is if it is a SATA or PATA drive. This model was built for SATA drives, but I think you may be able to get a PATA drive to work with the right adapters.
For the step by stem directions see the link below. It will take you right to the Dell support page. Refer to the "Adding a Second Hard Drive" section.
