Re: My Hard Drive just arrived today but i got no idea what to do
ok, if your old hdd is broken, you will need a new o/s windows xp, 2000 ect ect. if you have a windows disk you can move onto the next step.
turn off the power to your p.c and unplug it. take the side panel off and make sure you are grounded while going inside it. ths will remove the chance of a static discharge. now you can see what your new hdd looks like, so find the old hdd and remove the leads which are attached to it. make note of where they were locateed.
the new hdd might have come with a new ide lead, change te old one for your new one. make sure you observe the way it went in and insert your new lead to your motherboard.fit your new hdd where you removed the old one from, then attach your ide lead. now attach your power lead.
now it down to you to install the operating systen (o/s). if you have your xp disc insert it into your disc drive. and follow the promps when you boot up.
