ots86,
Not 100% on this last communication. You took all components off the mobo and tried to power it up? Iron things like a volt meter? Let's start with the system spec's, no doubt many components can be recycled but the things plugged onto the board could all be suspect. Good news is you go it to turn on for a short time, maybe we can work with that?

Well you suspect the mobo is bad right? But if you want to order another board we need to know the spec's of this system CPU, GPU, PSU, Ram, Drives both optical and hard. Stuff like that. You could also take to a repair place and for a nominal fee they should be able to tell you what's fried and what's still working (this is likely the smart choice for you). Just don't have then sell you a bill of goods before you come back and let us know what happened and what the spec's are !

Haha. This thread reminds me of what I did with my old IBM with a VIA Cyrix CPU. It has 256 MB of RAM. I really mixed different chips on this one. I took apart another dead PC from around the same time, and put its RAM into the IBM. I mixed SIMMs with DIMMs and it worked fine.Most motherboard I've worked with allow mixing of RAM. Even my eMachines w3400 allowed this, and that was a very crappy PC. However, I've heard that some Dell PCs do not always do this well.

Question about RAMs
If I wanted to save money I could get RAMs from my older computers, taking out 2GB from one laptop and another 2GB from another laptop, to put into my current HP laptop for a total of 8GB RAM. Would this work? I see if you try to buy a new 4GB RAM it can cost about $25 like this one: 2 4 GB Total...

Hi all, There are two RAMs in a PC. One of them is 1GB and another is 2GB. I want to remove that 2GB by opening the PC (case) and simply bring it out from its slot on the motherboard. Is it possible? And will not my OS and other components get damages? Thanks.
