  1. My Old DELL Dimension 8400 Desktop's Hard Disk Drive Died Today! Looks like
    my new DELL XPS 600 showed up just in time! It's just a shame that I now
    won't be able to test Windows Vista Beta 2, that is unless it will actually
    install on my older Compaq Pentium 3 933 Mhz Computer, and run on it with
    out any Major Problems, whatsoever (LOL)!

    How big is the hard disk in the Compaq? and why don't you change it with the
    one in the Dell?

  3. Not Compatible (The Compaq is IDE and the DELL is Serial ATA).

    All mother boards come with IDE even if you have SATA
    because there are no SATA CD/DVD drives

  8. Hello, thanks for all the Replies, However, I just thought that I would let
    you guys know that I have decided not to keep wasting money on my DELL
    Dimension 8400 Desktop (considering the fact that I have had a total of 5
    Hard Disk Drive's go Bad in the System, and considering the fact I now have
    a Brand New $2,000.00 U.S.A. Dollars DELL XPS 600, just FYI).
