  1. Most certain way is open your case and look:

    Ide looks like this:http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/11/23/pc_interfaces_101/page15.html

    Sata looks like this: http://www.tomshardware.com/2005/11/23/pc_interfaces_101/page14.html

    Older computers will have only ide, newer ones prob use sata but they can have both.

    Can also check in the bios
  2. Thanks a lot. (Now all I need to do is buy a new IDE HDD)
