I had a Packard Bell Platinum 4200 model desktop PC at the end of 1999. Recently, the original 20 GB hard drive failed and I now need to replace it. Are there any applicable restrictions when choosing a new drive (considering the age of the computer etc.)? What capacity HD would it be able to take, without problems? Would it be necessary to make any BIOS changes to recognise the new HD? Also, would the new HD be compatible with the recovery CDs that came with the computer?
Thanks in Advance,
