Great!

Wear an anti-static wrist strap before you work on the inside of any computer!

Keep in mind that it is an IDE (PATA) hard disk. And, on this computer, 250 GBs is the max capacity that the motherboard will support (per Dell).

My old computor crashed, so I have taken the hard drive out and installed in external case and pluged into my other computor. So far I am not getting anything out of my external hard drive. Any ideas?

Try it in a different computer. If the external case has USB 2.0, try a different port. Check to see whether the HDD is spinning when power is applied.

If the HDD is ok, then check 'Device manager' in the Control Panel. It is possible that the old computer failed due to th hard disk failing. Check out these possibilities one by one.
