Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

I don't know what type of HD to buy

\015 My hard drive failed. I need to look for a new one. I have a HP media center m1000. How do I find out if I need a SATA or IDE type?\015

Answers :

Look at your cables in your computer. If they are grey and about an inch wide then they are IDE. If they are round cables then they are SATA. As far as Hard Drives go, go with Western Digital or Seagate you can't go wrong. Good Luck.
