    Will it be used as a system drive (with your operating system on) or as a secondary drive?

First, check the jumpers on the back of the drive to ensure that it's set for master. There will be a legend on the drive label explaining where the jumper needs to be to achieve this. If it has been used as a system drive previously you won't need to worry about this.

Second, physically fit the drive into the tower and connect the IDE ribbon cable. The motherboard end of the cable should connect to the primary IDE slot. To identify which one is primary look closely next to the two slots, they'll be marked IDE 0 and IDE 1. IDE 0 is primary. Connect a molex power connector to the back of the drive from the PSU.

Since this drive has been used previously you should now be able to install your chosen operating system from a CD or DVD. XP and Vista both have options for creating/deleting and formatting existing partitions during setup.

These are simplified instructions and assume that it is an IDE drive and not SATA and that no second hard drive will be installed on the same IDE bus. More detailed instructions can be found here:

Imperial gl ve 20020930 SPECS


TriGem (Company) Imperial GLVE (Model)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&dlc=en&docname=bph07813&lc=en#N779

http://www.trigem.co.kr/tgservice/econsult/faqProduct04.asp?cls=0&Page=&ID=4237&C1=1&C2=68&C3=359&C_N=IMPERIAL-GLVE

Hmmm, I'm at a stalemate.

Looking at the specs for the motherboard chipset;
The Northbridge and Southbridge chip,

Intel 845GV

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Supports CPU's with a 400MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a
533MHz FSB.

Naturally I can't get a clear picture of those jumpers, but they look to be 3-pin.

If we are to assume that the jumper pins set the CPU FSB support, from 400MHz to 533MHz, then the jumper cap is moved from either

Pins 1 and 2, to Pins 2 and 3; on J2 jumper;
Or Pins 2 and 3, to Pins 1 and 2.

I know !O_O!
Sort of a guessing game, as to where the jumper cap goes to what pins, for 400MHz FSB support, or 533MHz FSB support.

Do you have any idea of what the FSB is for the old CPU (Processor), that was in the motherboard? (Or is)

Let's say 400MHz.
You now know if the CPU you are wanting to use, needs 533MHz Front Side Bus support, you need to move the jumper cap to the opposite pins.

What happens if it's wrong? Nothing. processor just won't work.
Change the jumper cap back.

(NOT plugged into power when you do. Also FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions)

Yes. I'm 'out there on a limb'
I am assuming after looking at the TriGem support page, for the Imperial GLVE motherboard, that the J2 jumper is used to change the FSB support for the Processor.

It MAY be that J2 has Nothing to do with CPU Support.
It may be that there is no jumper for changing CPU FSB support.

(Cleared that right up, huh? Geez!)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[J1 = FDD. Floppy Disk Drive
J2 = CPU FSB jumper
J3 = CMOS Setup
J4 = CMOS,

I have one possible solution, but it may not be the answer you need.
In an HP, if you replace the hard drive and the motherboard and don't run the DMI (it digitally signs the motherboard and hard drive), it may stop you from loading stuff. I know for sure unless you run this your restore disks will not work.
Something to consider. You'd have to contact HP if this is the case.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error hope this helps

Where do i find motherboard settings for my dell xps 400?


Ok i'm not sure exactly what you mean by motherboard settings, but i'm guessing your talking about the BIOS settigs where you get to setup a new hard drive, or check the memory settings, etc. If so, then you just need to press a specific key at startup before the whole windows thing starts. In most cases it will be the Delete button, but i've also seen F2, F12, F10, Insert and Escape. In most cases it will tell you which button for maybe a second at startup, but i know that most dell, hp and the like hide those screens at startup on their machine so the clients don't screw around with their machines and then have the company fix the problem under warranty cause they don't know how to bring back the settings to normal. In any case, if you do not see that button it tells you to press for the BIOS settings, then go to the dell website in the support section, you should be able to find the answer in the FAQs for your laptop model.

Wish to install new hard drive in my Dell Dimension 9150


The BIOS can sometimes be a limiting factor when upgrading to a larger drive so I would check if you have a flash BIOS that can be upgraded to accommodate more memory or larger drives. The utility used for upgrading would have to come from Dell's website. 
To characterize your system in detail, I recommend using Belarc Advisor:

How long have you been experiencing this problem? Are you sure your hard drive has not been formated? Check inside the case to make sure all power plugs are fastened securely to the motherboard and peripherals.
