You need to look at the motherboard to find the pins that fit the hard drive ribbon cable. Then plug your cable into the motherboard and the hard drive. Nowadays, motherboards do not have jumpers for hard drive function.
If you have a really new motherboard, you may not nave any ATA connectors at all. New motherboards are going to SATA.

Will a Quantum Fireball hdd replace a Sata hdd.Both are 3.5 and 5/12v or do you need to re configure them?


SATA (serial ATA) is a connection type, not a brand of hard drive. Any brand of hard drive will replace any other, as long as they are both SATA drives. The data and power connections are standard between drives, as are mounting dimensions. Normally, with SATA drives there are no jumpers or other configuration you need to deal with. Each SATA drive has its own connection to the motherboard, so you don't need to set master/slave jumpers like you would on the parallel ATA drives using the wide data cable.

Want to remove wd2500 drive from HDD enclosure and


OK your hard drive is an ATA drive.
You motherboard will have two hard disk controllers, on the 1st controller the ATA cable will have two connectors - a connector will have the C drive hard disk attached to it and the jumper on the hard drive will be set as the Master drive. You may also have a CD or DVD drive connected to this cable, if so then the CD or DVD drive will be jumpered as a Slave drive.
If the second connector does not have a drive connected, then you can connect the second hard drive to this connector BUT it needs to be jumpered as a Slave drive.
You may elect to connect the second hard drive to the second IDE controller instead on the first controller. If there aren't any drives on the second ATA cable then the second hard drive can be jumpered as either a Master or Slave drive.
If there is a drive on the second ATA cable you need to determine the jumper setting of that drive and then set the jumper on the second hard drive to a different setting. BOTH drives on the same cable CANNOT have the same drive setting.
After installing the second hard drive, check the BIOS configuration of the second hard drive, if the hard drive is detected then when Windows boots up you will see the hard drive and its contents.

Msi pm8m3-vh motherboard need to reset bios as comp will not start up


On almost every motherboard, there is a small jumper setting (3 prongs) with a *small yellow* jumper connecting two of the prongs. It is generally near the "chipset" heatsink, nearby the ATA/SATA cable connectors for the Hard Drive(s). Yours may be near the "bottom" of the RAM slots.

If you turn off the computer, turn off the power, unplug the computer, and move the small yellow (sometimes white, but almost always yellow) switch from the two jumpers it's on to connect the middle to the opposite one.

If the jumper is on the left two, move it to the right two. This will include the middle jumper prong.

Leave it that way for 15-30 seconds, and you should reset your BIOS settings.

If that doesnt work, unplug everything and pull the small, quarter sized battery out of the motherboard (directly next to the ATA connectors. (It looks like a large watch battery. You will need a tweezer or small plastic wedge of some sort to move the battery holder out of the way to get it out. It's easier than it sounds, trust me.

If neither of those work...I'd suggest a new motherboard, because both of those methods are supposed to reset the BIOS. Hope it helps!

I don't have the manual for 277498-011


As for the Power Supply 99% sure it is an ATX which as long as you get the same Watt as the existing you will be okay. Make sure you look at your existing connectors to see if you have a 24 pin or 20pin motherboard and 4 pin or 8 pin additional power plug (black and yellow wires) and the new power supply has matching connectors....older ATX supplies have only 20 pins, but there are converters from 20 to 24 pin available.

Watch for the new power supplies and your drive connectors as some of the new power supplies have limited ATA plugs...if you have a lot of ATA devices you might need SATA power convertor plugs or ATA splitters to get all you ATA devices up.

SATA HDD make SLAVE


IDE Cable with 3 connectors (you have 1 or need to buy 1) :
- blue: conn to motherboard
- black: conn to master HD
- grey: conn to slave HD
Cable (select:) cable will auto detect with most modern HD's from same type (SATA it was i think) and you need to go to you're BIOS, set up cable select for the HD's. Maybe best to set up master first, not both at same time. If you have a SATA and ATA set up the master first, then other. So if SATA is slafe but it in grey connector, otherwise black. For an ATA you might need a converter cable for the power, most motherboards don't have 1.
