Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop

1 Answer

RE: Dell Dimension 2400

Thank you very much for the response. I'm not sure if it is SATA or IDE, but now that you informed me, I will be sure sure to look. Is that the only determining factor that I need to purchase a new HD? Thank you very much also for the website. I've heard of them, but didn't know which company to shop from. Have a great night.

Tiger is really great; I use their sister company as my distributor for my pc sales business. The only other determining factor is the size of the hard drive. $60 can get you 200 GB, but $100 can get you 500 GB. It all depends on how much you need. Glad I could be of help. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Hello, What is the largest hard drive I can upgrade too for my Biostar 330G? Can I use a SATA and install a IDE hard drive as my slave backup? Thank you. Remi


As I recall, this model has one IDE channel on, which typically powered an optical drive. The manufacturer claims that it supports one IDE drive, in theory, you could set the IDE HDD on the second connector of the IDE cable (secondary slave), however, it may be that the Bios will not recognize this.

My own thoughts would be, as this has 2 SATA ports, to leave the IDE connection alone and for the Optical drive and put another SATA HDD on the other SATA connector.

If you need to use the IDE drive, you can get an IDE to SATA adapter and that would enable you to use it connecetd to the SATA connector

As to capacity, I'd assume it would run any size of HDD

Raid settings, i one to set sata drive as primary and ide as secondery


First connect the SATA to port 0 Sata does not have any Primary or secondary port, It has ports SATA0,SATA1,SATA 2, 3 and 4(depending upon the number of ports available on your motherboard), Connect the SATA to port SATA0

Then connect another Drive to IDE 2(secondary). Normally the IDE port closer to the RAM is primary.

To confirm the connection is correct you can look in the BIOS

I couldn't find illustration, but you'll need SATA cable and 4 small orange/yellow connectors in the corner of motherboard are your SATA connectors.

It wont start.. what is sata?


You have to make sure first, what is your HDD type? is it IDE or SATA (Serial ATA).

Check it out: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-sata-or-serial-ata.htm

You should plug the data cable, to your hard disk. Remember, there's no way to plug your SATA cable to IDE HardDisk because the connector are not the same (I don't know if there's a converter between it).

So, make sure it first. If it IDE, find IDE data Cable, and make sure it plugged to your MainBoard and Hard Disk. Do the same procedure if it is SATA Hard Disk, only this time you should connect the SATA cable from your mainboard to your SATA Hard Disk.

I want to install Windows XP on my IDE 2nd HD


- sata has no master
- i presume u want the OS on the ide drive, and not just that the ide drive to have "C" assigned to it! So : 1 - U can copy the data form the ide to the sata, and then reinstall the OS on the ide (note: the OS will start up a bit slower do to the slower ide drive !!!) and so it will become the C drive ! And u can assign to the sata what ever letter u wish...

2- if u don't want to reinstall the os u can do a copy of the os and put it on the ide drive(not just copy the files !! it will not work!!!). U cold use clonezilla for example... But probably the first method wold be safer ....

Hard drive


If you look at the hard drive inside your computer, there will be 2 cables plugged into it. If one of the cables is a flat cable about 2 inches wide, then its IDE interface type.

No but you need to ensure that the drivers for your SATA controller are installed correctly (as they probably are not installed) http://uk.asus.com/products1.aspx?l1=3

IDE to SATA Adapter


Hi, could it be that you have an adapter that works one way only - IDE to SATA - it converts an IDE drive to SATA host port and therefore will not work in your motherboard. What you probably should get is Sata Drive to IDE connector. You might want to have a look @ http://www.satacables.com/html/sata-acessories.html./ Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck.
