It looks like the Dimension 1100 has an EIDE interface. HERE is the link directly from Dell for upgrade parts for your PC.

I dont have a hard drive, can i use any hard drive


I looked up the specs on that device. See below. The specs call for IDE. You will only be able to use an IDE harddrive drive. You can pick IDE drives up pretty cheap from TigerDirect, Amazon, NewEgg or most local tech computer/tech stores.

The hard drive isnt spinning the disks. We can put in a cd or dvd or any disk and it does nothing.Do I have to just replace the hard drive?


You have a failed DISK drive not a hard drive. You can pickup a new one at Walmart, Best Buy or any other electronics store. Make sure to get a new DISK DRIVE that has a SATA connection and not the IDE connection. Your will take only the SATA type which is the faster of the two.

You can see more info and specs on your computer here at Dell. http://www.dell.com/us/en/dfh/desktops/dimen_c521/pd.aspx?refid=dimen_c521&cs=22&s=dfh

Good luck.

Upgrade Hard drive


If you open the case and you can see the seta plugs then yes you should be able to install a seta drive. Since the settings are in bios and seta is becoming more of a norm I would assume you will be able to do this with minimal effort. Remember to look at your power supply leads to make sure you have the appropriate plugs. if not you can get an adaptor if one is not supplied with the drive.

Trying to install hard drive on Dell Dimension 8200.


Sounds like the drive from the 4700 is a SATA drive which uses a different connector than the 40-pin IDE. I couldn't confirm it, but the 8200 may not have SATA connectors for this type of drive. Although the 4700 appears to have both SATA and IDE.

Hard drive


at first you have to check it out, whether your hard drive is related on ide or sata. sata is the new technic used now in the recent years. ide is the old technic that comes with the wide bus cables. but sata is a small red colored cable that transfers data more faster than ide.
after that, you have to check it out the mother board settings for connecting with sata cable. because, the older pc have no more settings for sata. if it is available means, no problem to update your hard drive. or you can just go for external hard drives.

Do you know if it is SATA or IDE? If you look at your hard drive, an IDE will have a wide cable connected to the back of it. If it is SATA, it will be a small cable that connects it to the motherboard. I think it is SATA. But nonetheless, depending on the size of the hard drive you want, you can get decent hard drives in the $60 range at www.tigerdirect.com.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. Thank you.

Hard drive installation


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.
