HDD Upgrade

That model has standard IDE interface for hard drive. Don't think 500 GB or higher comes with that interface. The standard now is SATA interface for hard drives. Here is a lnk to the owner's manual for you model:
You tell the difference between standard IDE and SATA in that the standard IDE interface uses a wide flat ribbon cable to connect to the drive. SATA uses a small thin cable as shon in the following link:

What type or brand of hard drive do I have to get to install in Acer AM5641 Desktop ? I want to upgrade to a 1 tb hd.

You currently have a 320GB 7200-rpm SATA II hard drive, with 8MB cache install on a base package of your make and model of computer. I would recommend a hard drive like Samsung Spinpoint F4EG 2 TB Internal hard drive. You can find it roughly for $70.00 - $90.00 at online stores like amazon, new egg, etc.

I hope this helps.

How to install seagate hdd into optiplex gx520...please help me...

I see you are trying to use a IDE HDD in a system that is meant to use a SATA HDD. If you have a desktop version of the Gx530 (not the small form factor) then you can still use the IDE. You will just have to put it on the ribbon wire as the CD/DVD drive. You will then need to have a power wire splitter to share the power for the DVD as the SATA power wire will not work on the IDE drive.

This only works on the desktop (larger) models, if you have the SFF or the USFF then it will not work as they dont have the IDE ribbon.

Hope this helps.

Upgrade my Dell Dimension 4400 Service Tag 43L5811

You can upgrade to practically the maximum available amount of harddrive space as long as the new drive is IDE. The following picture shows the drive you require:


A guide to replace a hard disk for this PC is available here.

As a rule of thumb, you should buy the maximum size hard disk you can afford as it improves the performance.

You can choose from any brand but choose the one with maximum warranty.

PS. There is no need to go into any kind of numbers; just ask the vendor to give you a certain size IDE hard drive eg a 250GB Western Digital IDE hard drive.

Dell Optiplex Gx280 - cant detect two IDE hard drives


You should attach two hard drives on primary ide. Set both jumpers to cable select ( or one on end is master, middle one is slave). The one at the end of the cable is where your o/s should be. You could try putting the third on seconday, along with your dvd rom.

Hi guys, I'm new in this forum and I really need some help. I have a p4vmm2 motherboard with Intel Celeron 2.0 Ghz CPU and I want to upgrade it with Intel Pentium 2.4 CPU motherboard. I have already tried...

Whenever you try to upgrade motherboard and CPU's with Windows XP, you're probably going to have to format your drive and re-install XP. When you originally install XP it detects the motherboard and IDE controlers for your hard drives and installs the drivers needed but it doesn't install all drivers for motherborads and IDE controlers. When you swap out motherboards and the system tries to fire it doesn't have drivers available for the new motherboard and can't complete the boot into windows. Every once in a while you get luck and the new and old motherboard can use the same drivers but this is very rare. So when upgrading motherboards plan on backing up your hard drive of all files you need to keep and being prepared to format and re-install windows.
