Question about NEC PowerMate 5250 PC Desktop

1 Answer

What hard drive will work with my NEC PowerMate 5250?

I have a NEC PowerMate 5250 it is the Pentium 111 and it currently has an 8GB hard drive that is low on space. I wanted to install a 40-100GB hard drive. I tried a Maxtor 40GB that I had laying around but the BIOS could not detect it. I tried to move the jumper to CS and DS MASTER since it is the only hard drive in the PC I didnt set it as slave.

Basically I need a list of compatible hard drives that will work with my machine.

You would need to get the manual for this computer as the manual should state in it what type of hard drive it supports in terms of capacity and what connector types it needs ie IDE or SATA ?

Also are there any bios updates for this computers motherboard as that may resolve you not being able to attach a large capacity hard drive also in the bios see if you can enable LBA (logical block addressing ) http://www.pcguide.com/ref/hdd/bios/modesLBA-c.html or there may be another setting in the bios which may help you.

Hi
Have you tried your hard drive on another machine?Or maybe tried another hard drive on your machine?
Could well be a faulty hard drive.
Also try disconnecting the hard drive and connecting it again.

Powermate Eco Hard Drive Crashed


Hello

instructions on how to remove and replace the hard drive are on this PDF document.

You will need a pdf reader to open the document, if you are unable to open it download a pdf reader here

Can you remove the hard drive from the computer, write down the details that read on top of it, and also if you could look at the connectors and tell me the details so I can make sure I direct you at a proper replacement.

Thank you,
Ekse

WINDOWS 98


You probably don't want to hear this but I really do not recommend that you do this.
The reason has to do with your hardware.

System Requirements for Windows 98:
486DX 66 megahertz (MHz) or faster processor (Pentium CPU recommended)
16 megabytes (MB) of memory (24 MB recommended).
A full install of Windows 98 on a FAT32 drive requires up to 255MB of hard drive space
VGA Graphics

The minimum hardware requirements for Windows XP Home Edition are:
Pentium 233-megahertz (MHz) processor or faster (300 MHz is recommended)
At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM (128 MB is recommended)
At least 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available space on the hard disk
Super VGA Graphics

To be honest the posted minimum requirements for XP have long been considered a joke. A system twice as powerful as they recommend will probably still run slower than your current system with 98.
I am of course assuming that Windows 98 was originally installed on your system and it has circa 1998 hardware.
