Hi. It may or may not. Take some steps to determine if it will before you go buy another hd. You could start by looking at your system manual. It should tell you. You could also open the case and look. The current hd will connect to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable, called EIDE. If there is room inside the case, you should be able to mount a second hd and connect it to the existing EIDE cable, configured as a slave drive.
