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.

NEED CABLE WIRING DIAGRAM FROM DRIVES AND HARD DISC. TWO OF EACH.


No diagram needed. All optical and hard disc drives will need to have power and data. If they are IDE, use those cables. SATA get SATA cables. The ports on the system boar will be labeled as SATA 1 and so on. If they are not the correct order when you boot, you can swap the cables or change it in the BIOS.

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.

I have windows xp and when i try to put a cd in to burn it doesnt register the cd


The cd/dvd burning unit is dead, you will have to buy a new one - it's less than $30 at every pc shop. Just make sure to get an IDE one, not SATA.

There are 2 types of drives. SATA and IDE. Most likely you have purchased a SATA and your system is older with an IDE harddrive

For this problem it only means that the Hard Disk of the computer is not being detected

Try doing the ff:
  • reseat the IDE or SATA cable of the Hard Disk
  • Clean the port where the cable is connected (make sure that the computer is unplug)
  • reboot the computer
  • if problem persist contact computer manufacturer
Hope this will help

Sata cable connection


There are no internal connectors for SATA devices in a Dell Dimension 2400, only IDE. If you have SATA drives that you really want to use, I suggest purchasing an external drive case/dock that converts SATA to usb 2.0. On the other hand, if you are referring to the SATA power connector from a new power supply, you don't need to connect this to anything. If I misunderstood your question, please explain it a little more to me.

Replacement HD


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.
