Latoof has supported my own thoughts. Identifying and being confident with the chosen item was the next concern. Why did I worry??

All good, thankyou!
Cheers.

How do I fix a problem were a tower computer won't see the slave hard drive.


It sounds like both drives are trying to be the master on the cable. Have you tried setting both drives jumpers to the CABLE SELECT setting. This allows the BIOS to individually identify them and you specify in the BIOS which is the primary boot drive.

Sata port password


The password was set by the hard drive owner. Nowadays hard drives can be encrypted and therefore locked and a unique password is required.

You can replace the hard drive with a larger capacity hard drive. Best bet would be a 250GB .
Hard drive have come down in prices, you should be able to get a 250 GB. for less then $100.
Western Digital ansd Seagate are my preference.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How much can my system take??


You can put as large a hard drive in there as you like. If the bios does not recognize the entire thing you can format and partition it using the HD manufacturer's software.

Hello, Bob!

Seeing as I am a 6 year veteran of Dell Tech Support, I should be able to help you out, no problem.

One thing that I would like to let you know is this: according to Dell Support Policy, you ARE allowed to put a non-Dell-branded hard drive in your computer. However, if Dell Support deams that this non-Dell hdd has caused another Dell component to fail, they will not replace the defective product. BUT, since it is HIGHLY unlikely that a non-Dell hdd would actually cause any other failure, feel free to purchase a non-Dell hdd. (I often times suggested that customers take this route because unless you're purchasing a refurbished Dell product, you're only paying for the Dell name.)

Anywho...

There really are no limitations to what size hdd you can install in your computer. Of course, a larger hdd will take more time to process information (Basically, there's more surface area to scan when your computer is searching for a specific piece of information.). Your main thing will be determining if you have an IDE hdd or a SATA hdd.

The Dell Tech website CAN be your friend (support.dell.com). From there, you can view original configuration and even available upgrades simply by entering your service tag (Usually found toward the back of your computer, on a black sticker with white text. It should list your service tag, an alpha-numeric value, and express service code, an all-numeric value).

If I were in your position, I would most likely not go over a 160g or 200g hard drive... simply to keep decent performance.

Hope I helped!

The price for a notebook hard drive really depends on the size that you will purchase. You can search for prices using the google product link. Just type in notebook hard drive. Its pretty easy to install yourselft so dont worry its just a matter of opening a few screws. You will need an IDE notebook hard drive by the way. Although you cannot put in a new or extra fan on the laptop itselft you can buy one of those laptop coolers. The ones that you can put under the laptop.
