Hard drives demand a steady constant power flow, or their controller cards can get fried or there can be mechanical damage from power spikes. Heat is another killer of hard drives, they need air flow and open space around them to "bleed" off heat. I would probably upgrade my power supply to a more modern one with separate power rails and make sure the drive is secured in the middle area of its mounting cage and maybe install an auxiliary fan just for moving air over the drive.
it easy , understand this the white plug with 15 pins in it connect on the mainboard you will see the same size on the mnaiboard and its white too , the grey wires are called IDE 1 and IDE 2 and the ohter one is floppy that one is smaller in size make sure by plug it in too the mainboard look for asmall cut in the plug on the mainboard that is how you find the grey plug in and it go in one side
Next time you get nasty with me on answers, I'm gonna nuke your pc so bad you wont NEED a new processor! Surface mount technology has NOT been around for 50 years to the general public. You are a friggin moron who thinks they know something! I've been involved for 30 plus years in the field PUTZ!
it been seem that you are not clear with facts to help you in proper way.
anyway i try to explain you general way.
first a internal tv card have two sound conectors, one in one out.
you must take with apropriate cable sound from output conector in your tv tuner card and the other extreme put it in line in (blue) conector in your Mb system sound card(there are last three one green one red and one blue ). now you have maket this go to program that control sound card and choose the right entry for you line in (blue conector). after that if sound isnt comming you must go to the tv settings to put the right output for your sound, and specify even is in rear or front side (in your case in rear side).prove this steps and write me back again is that helpful, or part of it so i can help you again from point you failed .
you can upgrade the CPU without changing the motherboard if the CPU is compatible with the motherboard, you have to buy an Intel processor since the motherboard is Intel. Log on to http://www.intel.com/ to learn more.
