sticker on side of Seagate said:
Replace with Compaq Spare
8.4 GB HD
In response to your question there is a green plastic plate on same side but i did not see any place where you could slide in another computer plate for HD. Attached is a photo.
this is a ComPaq Intel Pentium III processor 498 MHz. Memory; 256 MB of RAM. Storage for C drive: 7.857 GB.
Seagate model ST38410A w/ 8455 MB. Running on MS Windows XP SP2.
really need your help figuring out type of internal hard drive i can add to this compaq tower, where i can add it inside the tower, & where I can order it from. assume there is more flexibility than inserting the compaq spare shown above? can this pc bios run internal HD larger than 10 GB? I really don't have funds now to buy a new computer. i got messages this morning virtual memory minimum too low, & running out of hard drive space.
