    Through my wife's office I recently aquired a cpu made by BTG. Unfortunately there is no hard drive installed. I need to find the specifications to install a hard drive, however BTG web site does not offer anything in the way of tech support (at least not that I can find).

    I want to upgrade this computer myself. I have a store nearby that sells new/used hardware so getting parts is no problem.

    Where can I find information/specifications on BTG Computers?

    You'll need to find out what motherboard they used in that PC of yours. Then you'll find out what you can and can't upgrade to.

    Try going here MOBO ID Tools and see if you can identify your board.

    If the BIOS date is 1998 or 1999, I'd stick to a 30gig or smaller drive. If the BIOS date is 2000 or later, you can use larger drives.
