    Put the screwdriver down and back away slowly!!! Seriously! If you haven't done the research don't start randomly swapping parts into your funtioning machine untill you find out if they are compatible. You will have to find out exactly what your machine has/is capable of using vs what the thing you bought has in it and hopefully whatever parts you are trying to mix and match are not parts that killed the previous machine.

    Yes, please!
    Any information you can provide as to brand, speed, memory type - and motherboards would be a good start.

    Additionally, where is this yard sale and how long will it be going?

    Does anyone else ever wonder what happens to the people who ask a question like the one at the top of this thread and then dissappear for a long period of time? ...did he manage to get the edo simms into his sdram slots?

    in a situation like this there is only one thing you can really do. that is, do what they did in the movie office space. take it out to a field and beat the **** out of it with a bat. problem solved.

    If a PC is sold for five bucks, I wouldn't expect much out of it. I'm thinking you could have a nice CPU keychain at the very least.
