When you purchase the product, it usually comes with all connectors and power cables that connect it to your pc. make sure when you purchase one that it is "plug-and-play" or if not, comes with its own installation software cd/usb key.

these drives usually work with all standard cpus. i googled your dell model and it looks like a standard desktop pc. make sure you don't void your warranty while opening it. you might want to inquire with your dell provider if you will indeed void your warranty if you do this operation by yourself.

What do I set my CD-Rom Jumpers to in a Dimension 1100


Which is it a Dell 3000 or Dell 1100 ?

The jumper settings on the rear of the DVD drive; set the jumpers to "cable select" mode (if you are uncertain how to set the jumpers, check the documentation that came with your drive or look for a diagram printed on the drive itself). Insert your DVD drive into the selected drive bay and connect the IDE and power cables. Use the screws that came packaged with the drive to secure the component to the drive bay.

im not sure what part you need you might have to buy the complete dvd drive or you might be able to locate a damaged drive for parts
postage is the big killer you should try to locate nearest you for a free local pick up

My dell dimension 3000 pc has run out of memory space on the C-drive. How do I add more memory?


You can't directly add additional memory space to the C drive, but you can add additional hard drive and move the files from C drive to the additional drive. If there's enough space on D or E drive, you can move from C drive to the other drive. Note that your C drive includes your Desktop, My Documents files, My videos, My pictures, My Music etc.. So make sure you haven't saved extra files on you Desktop or My Documents. To free up some space, you can run DiskCleanup utility which is built-in with the Operating System. To do this, Right click on the C drive, Properties - Disk Cleanup... and then provide positive input, eg. yes or ok. good luck..

DVD drive Read problem in my Dell Dimension 3000


Make sure you have any and all Windows 7 updates from Microsoft, along with any updates for your DVD drive for use with Windows 7. Some components work fine using Vista SP2 drivers, but some will need an update to work with Windows 7.

This Microsoft site might help verify if your DVD drive is compatible with Windows 7:

I have a dell dimension 3000 and i want to upgrade ram


Hello,

Best thing to do is to go to www.crucial.com and run their system scan. It will tell you how much you have, how much it will hold, and what kind of RAM you need.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I want to upgrade from cd rw to dvd/cd rw


If you are looking to replace the internal drive, then as long as you purchase a drive with the same interface it will work. If you are looking for a USB external drive then any one will work.

The only thing Dell was correct with is it should have +/- signs.
