How do i replace the d drive on a dell dimension dsktop

Answers :

Turn off the computer completely before doing anything.

on the back of the computer there is a black latch. Pull down on the latch and pull the side cover toward you and it will come off. Next this will expose a few plastic clips on the side near the front of the computer, pull slightly on the clips and this will take the front bezel off.

Now there will be two screws holding in you D drive. Unscrew these screws and then the drive will come on in the front of the computer so you have an empty bay.

Take the old screws off of the old D drive and put them in the same position on your new D Drive.

Next on the back of your drive is going to be a jumper that is covering pins, make sure your new drive jumper matches the position that your old drive jumper is in. It has to match up otherwise your computer won't recognize the drive properly.

Now go ahead and put the new drive into the bay and make sure you hook up the power connector and the ribbon cable to the back of the drive, they can only go on one way. Also be sure to put the screws back on as well so your drive stays in place.

Now turn on the computer and let it go into windows. It should auto-detect it. If for some reason windows doesn't detect it. Reboot the computer, go into the BIOS by pressing F2 and reset defaults, save changes, reboot and then windows should detect it then.
The drive in the dell system is pretty standard

\015\012you can buy a new drive from sites like newegg.com or microcenter.com and replaced it with little to no problem
\015\012
\015\012remove the side panel and remove the 2 screws that hold the drive in place. some dell system actually have a quick release tray for the drives. will be green in color and makes it really easy to remove the drive from the pc. disconnect the ribbon cable and power cable and reseat on the new drive.
