Greetings,please could someone tell me what sort of hard drive connection i have, so that I can replace my old hard drive.On my device manager it says "adaptec 2000s ultra 160 scsi raid controller". Thank you in advance.

Your motherboard will have two IDE connectors as the basic for HDD connection. It seems you also have either an adaptec SCSI card in a pci slot to which you can connect two SCSI disks in a raid configutation OR your mobo had two further connectors with an inbuilt adaptec chip to take a couple of scsi or Serial ATA disks. Without opening up the case it is difficult to tell. However, if you buy a standard parallel ATA IDE hard drive you will be able to fit that into one of the IDE connectors.
