Hi,
1. You can refer to your device motherboard user manual to find it our if the SATA HDD is supported or not.
2. If you dont have motherboard manual, just remove the screws behind your computer and remove the cabinet side cover and look onto the motherboard inside it. If you find SATA slots, then you can use SATA HDDs in your machine.

3. If there is no SATA slots in your motherboard, you can still use a SATA HDD to your system by getting a PCI to SATA convertor card.

I Hope this is helpful to you
Thanks

Check if you can use SATA else you'll have to look for IDE
Actually to insert a SATA drive is easier then replace a light-bulc.
Just remove cables, unscrew from "drawer" insrtn new drive, scress, replace cables.
If it's a system disk, the difficulty is resintall your system. After you've replaced Hard disk, formulate your question with more doubts

How 2 install a triple format sata internal drive in a gateway desk top


check for a open sata port on your computer. if there is one connect the hard drive with a SATA cable to the sata port on the motherboard.
connect the sata power to the hard drive or a molex to the hard drive if you do not have one. do not connect sata and molex to the hard drive together. if you don't have a molex connect you will need a molex to sata power adapter.
after connecting the hard drive to your pc. turn it on. in windows xp it will auto detect the hard drive and may prompt you to format the hard drive.

I am trying to upgrade to a 1tb SATA HDD on my Dell Optiplex GX270. It does not recognise my new drive in my BIOS, I have updated BIOS to A07. Am I missing something? Is it compatable with SATA?


I have the same model PC with a 250gig Sata HDD and dont have any problems. If a PC can read 250g it should be able to read 1000g. This may sound silly but is Sata turned on in Bios

Proper pin numbers to install inserts in a Dell SATA 34 pin GX270 motherboard


Hi there.
Get a strong flashlight and a magnifying glass (if you have one). On the motherboard look for the front panel, it should be marked PWR and coloured green, also the plug that connects to it should be marked PWR_SW. On some boards there are no colours but the markings are the same, so take a good close look.
Have a look at these pictures for an idea >>>>>>
