AT computer

Recommended Posts

When it comes to computer case form factor, HDDs have nothing to do with it. ATX & AT are just different sizes of cases and then some details involving the power source and motherboard. You need to match the HDD with the old motherboard, that is, the PATA standard supported by both. Usually PATA implementations are backwards compatible. But an HDD from a modern ATX computer might as well be built on SATA standard, which definitely doesn't match old PATA. Check what cables connect the HDD in your ATX machine, then check what slots do you have on the motherboard of your old AT machine. Also take a look at this page for PATA and SATA cables: https://layerpoint.com/sata-cable/

It is very difficult for me to understand what you are saying. Here are the specifications of all parts of my computer:

Computer 166+ CYRIX SN: 970900-252
2 SIMM of 8 MEGS 72 PINS EDO
Motherboard QDI EXPLORER IV 512K PB
PROCESSOR 166+ CYRIX 133 MHZ
CD ROM 20X
VIDEO CARD PCI CIRRUS LOGIC 1 MEG
SOUND CARD 16 BITS COMPATIBLE
HARD DRIVE 1.3 GB FUJITSU 10 MS SN: 05510940
 
Now, my questions is would the hard drive
White Label 120GB 8MB Cache 7200RPM PATA/IDE 3.5" fit into my computer?
