Presario S3300NX motherboard specs and SATA compatibilities.
Mar 14, 2011, 2:20 AM
I'm looking to replace the existing PATA hard drive in my Compaq Presario S3300NX with a SATA drive and need to know if the motherboard has SATA connections.
Or....will I have to find a SATA card or SATA converter (the latter NOT being my preference) and would one be accepted by the motherboard?
Or...how else do I connect a SATA hard drive to the S3300NX motherboard??
Or......what is the motherboard model number and/or where would I find the motherboard specs, descriptions, schematic....????
PS: I selected 'Asus' from the sub-directory list because I know NOT what the motherboard model actually iso

is the HP specs on your computer.
It does not have a SATA port, you would need to add a PCI card with SATA ports in order to add a SATA HD.
