  1. get a USB dock so that you can convert a SATA drive into an external USB drive, and back up all the data, then reformat the drive. I would suggest to unstall your OS onto the SATA drive not the IDE, as its faster and more compatible with older tech, like IDE. You will find Windows loads faster and all programs run faster, for data IDE is fast enough, its not for loading now. Just to know, what version of SATA is it? realy im asking the speed, so 1.5 or 3 Gb/s? by the sounds of it it wont be 6 Gb/s. (you can call serial ata, SATA as its easier and its the same thing)
  2. Thnx for the reply man, well are you sure that it will load with the USB dock??? because i have even put the hard disk in another pc and its still same, the screen goes black...???
