    I'm a little leery about paying that much for one, the one in this one literally burned out, so I need to figure out what caused that before I stick $30 worth of parts back in. If it wasn't the old PSU that caused the short, I'll just waste this old one.

    Probably just worn out. They usually "die in a fire" so to speak

    Here is the site where I bought a PSU for my last PC...took me a minute to remember the site.

    Yep. I bought everything from Outlet PC when I completely upgraded the last computer I had. I lost my bookmark at some point, but now I have it saved again.

    If I remember correctly, I bought 1.5GB PC 133 RAM, mATX PSU, 2.4GHz P4 and the heatsink/fan/paste from them. Obviously, it was a while back...

    im thinking of upgrading one piece at a time, trying to figure out what order i want to do it in.
    No, the motherboard has to specifically say that it supports both DDR3 and DDR2 for it to be able to use both.

    Oh man, I gotta tell you about my job yesterday
    Panda Man™ says:
    I got a job reinstalling XP on a laptop
    Panda Man™ says:
    It originally came with Vista but vista on a laptop......................
    Panda Man™ says:
    He got XP on it by taking it to a tech near me, but he moved
    Panda Man™ says:
    That was like a year ago
    Panda Man™ says:
    anyways, it needed formatting
    Panda Man™ says:
    He originally took it to a PC shop and they couldn't do it
    Panda Man™ says:
    So then he thought of calling me
    Panda Man™ says:
    I went down to the office
    Panda Man™ says:
    Put the disk in, and proceeded with setup
    Panda Man™ says:
    Setup could not find any disks
    Panda Man™ says:
    I was like
    Panda Man™ says:

    Panda Man™ says:

    Panda Man™ says:
    Anyways
    Panda Man™ says:
    I get the controlelr driver
    Panda Man™ says:
    the actual drivers are in a cab file and I can't get it extracted
    Panda Man™ says:
    They set the program up to where the ONLY way you can get the drivers is to put a floppy in the the drive
    Panda Man™ says:
    and have it format/ copy the drivers for you
    �* says:
    ok
    Panda Man™ says:

    Panda Man™ says:
    The guy had to run home, and somehow he had ONE floppy disk laying around at his house, so as he ran home he grabbed it and brought it back
    �* says:

    Panda Man™ says:
    I copied the utility to a flash drive and find an old ass comp with a floppy drive
    Panda Man™ says:

    dude....

    way way way way easier way.

    here. virtual floppy drive

    i dug it up because hp makes you use a floppy for their usb boot something or other. anyway point is, use it. and also what model gateway was it. becasue im having that same problem.... a friend forgot their password, so i was gonna use something like bartpe or offline nt reg editor to fix it.... but the latter you cant use different drivers, and the former i have little to no experience with.

    ANNNYYYWHO. the whole reason i came in here....
