I end up with alot of people's unwanted stuff. Anyway, my 2300 has a 20gb hard drive and I just got an 80gb hard drive off another pc. I want to know how much of a process it would be to replace the 20 with the 80?
The 80 is a - Deskstar ATA/IDE Model # - HDS722580VLAT20
I know there was windows 98 on it and that it had been updated to xp home sp1. My plan is to install the HD, reformat and reinstall windows. I don't have much to keep from the old HD so that's not a problem.
Can someone point me in the right direction as to how I can replace the old hard drive or if it's even compatible with my system?
Another question.. If I unplug the old HD would I be able to plug it back in at a later date if something happened to the replacement?
