I think there is no SATA ports on its mother board. So SATA Hard disks cannot be used on this system.
Without any dobt you can use PATA (the one that we used to see everywhere) can be used. There is no question of compatibility; any size 80,or 160 GB or even more can be used.

If you have the original Mobo in hand and feel a little curious about how at only two years old it doesn't work anymore, consider this. Inspect the large electrolytic capacitors on the board. (those round cylindrical things that stand up) for swelling. The tops should be perfectly flat. If they show swelling (domed) they have failed, and replacing them will likely bring it back. It takes good soldering skills and at least a 60-watt (100-watt preferred for this job because of the amount of heat required) temperature-regulated soldering iron, and the replacement parts. The bonus to this is you will not need to re-install your windows system. You might even feel a little like you have beat the system.
