Windows 7: What slots are these?

What slots are these?

My brother brought home a computer that his college was going to trash, and there's no model printed anywhere on it.

What slots are those available?

If you get out your flashlight and glasses, you certainly should be able to see a manufacturer's name somewhere on that motherboard.

From left to right, those slots look like PCI Express x 16, PCI Express x 1, conventional PCI, conventional PCI.

Have to agree with ignatzatsonic on the slots.

If it was a candidate for the trash do you know what is wrong with it? You will find the manufacturer on the board somewhere or at least a model number on the board and perhaps the make and model of the system and with that we can chase down the specs of the board.

A couple more pics, close ups of the entire board will show if the board as any capacitors bulging or leaking.

Agree with all advice.
Get yourself a bright light to shine on the board.
Get yourself a magnifying glass.
Google the cryptic info you find.

You might want to ask your brother why the college wanted to trash the board.

They were trashing the towers cause they were upgrading to macs. The weird thing is they did it early cause these are prefectly good computers. Easily run modern apps, but not by any means a gaming computer. Basically the same specs as my laptop.

Going to Mac systems is not a upgrade.

I have to agree, especially if this college plans on educating students for the business world.

This college must have a lot of money to waste. Someone should audit their books and cut their budget. "Upgrading" to Macs is hilarious.

Come on guys, be nice. Macs are great, I have a 6 year old 13 inch MacBook that is rock solid and the best thing about it is "bootcamp" so I can run windows on it.
