New Hard Drive For My New E-Machines Computer

by on December 5, 2007

Q: I have a brand new e-machine and I’m looking for a new hard drive but the power and IDE slots are not the same as my old hard drives or any that I can find.

A: Your new computer is probably equipped with Serial ATA hard drives. The connection on the back of the hard drive should look something like this. Serial ATA hard drives have been around for a few years and have almost completely replaced the drives your familiar with. They allow for faster data transmission and use much thinner cables.
