I bought an old HP-Compaq dc5800 microtower from a friend to replace my even older pc. My question is, the machine at the moment has 2 X 1GB DDR2 PC2-640 and I would like to additionally install the 2 X 1GB DDR PC2700 from the old pc, can I do this or would it fry my "new" machine?
N.B. I got the above info running Crucial software and the mobo is: Hewlett-Packard 2820h.
Any advise will be very gratefully accepted
Please don't laugh at the old machine I have, I just don't need a new one! I only use it for surfing and email and occasional downloading but I would like to use my old machine's parts instead of just junking it! And yes I will be using the old hard drive as a backup.
I am also running Windows 7 Home Premium x64.
