I need some advice. I have an old Dell Dimension 2400 that I am upgrading for my kids to use for school. Here is wha tit had:
Pentium 4 GHz
80 gb hd
512 k RAM
CD Rom drive
200 watt power supply
Here is what I have done
Ditched the CD Rom and Floppy
Ditched the RAM, replaced it with 2 GB of RAM
Added a DVD Drive I had laying around
Added a 320 GB Hard drive
Successfully reinstalled XP on the 80 GB HD,I went into the BIOS and removed the floppy and I kept getting this error
iskette drive 0 seek failure. I would press F1 and the computer would boot.
I tried to istall the 320 GB HD, no love. The device manager knows it's there but I can't access it.
Ther is one cable for the 80 GB HD, another for the DVD drive and the new 320 GB HD (used to be the cd rom spot) I have the 320 as slave and the DVD rom as master.
So, can I get rid of the floppy and the error? What do I do anout the 320 GB? Is the power supply to small maybe?
