Assuming that the only thing that is missing is the HD, go buy a 120gb hard, LOOK for one that is one sale with a BIG rebate.
Now you need to hook up the HD and install your OS, John
I am needing help and really don't know a thing about hardware. Maybe I can get some answers. I was given an emachine. I know what your going to say, trash it and get another one, but I am cheap and this gives me another project to try to figure out.
I do want to say I save a lot of pictures and work with them, so I am trying to figure out the best option here.
The Emachine doesn't have a hard drive. The original machine had a 40GB Hard Drive, something called Ultra DMA. Will any brand name or non brand namehard drive work? Do I need to upgrade to 120GB? Does it matter if it is something else besides Ultra DMA?
The person that gave me the computer said the CD Rom didn't work. I kept trying to boot or read the CD. But nothing ever happened? Any suggestions? Buy another one.
Here is what is written on the computer.
2.50 GHZ Intel Celeron Processor
48X Max Write
40GB Hard Drive
Again, any suggestions besides getting another computer. I am a tight wad and refuse to buy anything new. Also, remember working with pictures and trying to figure out how to no use up all my space on the computer.
