Re: More Hard Drive Space needed
Well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

if your HDD is a refurbished drive then it may still have faulty sectors. try a new hard drive and if still doesn't work try changing the ram you are using it may still appear as if its working but is causing processes to hang
Yes, either of these drives will work. The cache is not all that important it is just where data is stored temporarily in case you have to access it again soon after a file is written to the hard drive. The best thing you could do in this case is see if your motherboard has a sata connection which I would assume it does and buy a sata hard drive. It will be much faster than either of those drives, just make sure you also get a sata power adapter if your power supply doesn't already have one and a sata cable.
