Heres what my bro told me:
The type of mother board and hard drive connections that are in that computer are the old IDE type which involves a 40 pin connection. The hard drive we bought is very new and uses a new technology and is called SATA....sata does not plug into ide.It has a 7 pin data connector, and both use a 4 pin power thing.
What do we need ?
Is installing a new motherboard that hard ?
Would it make more sense just to get this: http://www.newegg.co...-144-102&depa=1
Will this "bolt" right up ?
