|Hi guys. I sat on my laptop screen and since its a few years old i dont think its worth the cost of fixing it even though it is running great.|
I went to a local recycle place to get rid of an old TV and saw a dell dimensions 3000 and took it home with me along with a monitor. They were glad to get rid of them.
Fired it up and worked great. Except only had 256mb of ram so i needed more.
My brother had an old pc in his atttic i asked him to drop it up to take the ram out.
I installed the ram and apparently fried my mobo doing so!!!
So then I thought of just taking the HD out of my fried pc and putting it into is
as I wanted to keep files and fried that as well as I connected it while the power was on.
Well I had a spare hd so I connected it and had a dell windows 7 cd lying round and installed it.
Is it common to fry mobos by simply instaling a stick of RAM?? The 1GB is in now but I'm afraid to add the 256mb one.
I dont believe I have a sound card can someone help me determine if I don't?
Windows 7 is saying 3 days left to register. I have windows 7 on my bbroken laptop but the key won't work. Will i not be able to use windows 7 after some days? I only want a pc for online poker, surfing the internet.
