Power Macintosh G-3 minitower computer Hard Drive Replaced

Original SCSI hard drive replaced with an 80 GB CAVIAR EIDE ATA 100 hard drive.
After replacement, it starts up but nothing appears on the monitor.
Should there be some compenstion for the SCSI that was original with the computer?

The motherboard BIOS most likely have a hard drive size limit. Yes you can create two or mare partitions to use the rest of the hard drive space.
Go to Control Panel - Administrator Tools - Disk Manager to create a partition and format this partition.

Ze4325us laptop...hard drive upgrade.....


I know the original question is over a year old, but here it goes for those just tuning in. Your HP ze4325us can only recognize a hard drive that is under 137.4GB. If you try to install a hard disk larger than 137.4, your computer will start to fail over time. I would recommend a 120GB hard drive, ata-100 / ide / eide, and spinning up around 5400 or 7200 rps. It would make your task easier. If you want to go bigger, use the hard drive manufacturers disk utillities programs (check manufacturer website) to partition and format before installation. So, if you were to puchase a 160GB drive, you could partition it at 137.4GB and 22.6GB. My advice, make it easy and just find a 120GB drive. Less hassles!

Whats the largest replaement HD I can put in my Presario


The HD capacity is defined by the bios software in the computer, if HP/Compaq tells you that 80Gb is the maximum capacity, then I think you should believe them, after all they should be the first one interested in selling more high price products, go for the 80Gb is .

You can go up to 120 GB for this model computer. Following is a link to Drive Solutions, Inc. It shows a 120 GB ATA drive available for your drive. ATA is the formal name for an IDE drive.
