A customer needs additional storage space on an older computer. What will the technician look at in the computer to determine if an additional hard drive can be added?

  • adequate RAM
  • an open PCI/PCIe expansion slot
  • an available PATA/SATA connection
  • BIOS version
  • the heat that is generated and air flow requirements
    Explanation:

    PATA supports two devices per cable. PATA cables sometimes have only one device connector. A new PATA cable could be purchased that had two device connectors. Each SATA device, on the other hand, requires a SATA port and a SATA cable.
