Now that I retrieved all of the data from my old hard drive, I've decided to install it permanently for the additional 8 gigs of storage. Then it occured to me that I could canibalize quite a few other parts. I have he RAM chips removed and am considering putting them in. Do I need drivers for RAM chips? Will the additional 64MB help? Oh yea, also, I have heard about partitioning hard drives to keep them from spreading viruses or crashing the systems entirely. How can I do this? Should I do this? I swear this site rocks! I got step by step instructions from a Subary Mechanic how to change my timing belt/drive belts/seals, I got medical advice for abdominal pains, computer expertise on UNIX/SQL/SAS and hardware help. Oh yea, there are those minor things I learned about my AR/ammo of course (to many to list). YOU GUYS ROCK. I've said it before, I'll say it again, this is the best site on the internet!!

The RAM from my old computer is 64MB. (2 32mb chips). My new computer is pretty new, I think it has SRAM or SDRAM or something like that. I don't think they match. Thanks. How do I partition a drive?

These days, the rule is... RAM is only re-usable within the same chip generation... If it's not ment to go in, it won't fit, as well... The exception is SDRAM DIMMS: 66mhz, 100mhz, and 133mhz all fit the same slot (but don't work well when mixed)...
