i am looking to find a RAM card. and also a processor card. My pc is old so i cant just get a normal processor. if anyone knows where i could find one. please pm me.
i know these are hard to find so i dont expect many of you to know about them.
You'll need to be more descriptive. There are far too many computers out there for us to be able to guess what kind of hardware that you need or what you already have.
psycosquirrel, you are wrong about the processor card thing. Intel produced a whole line of socket 370 Celerons that could be used on the P-II slot 1 interface if you had the card for it. Some Sun processors are on a card, as well.
If your computer is really old, though (older than Pentium 3 or AMD Duron processor), I'd consider upgrading if you can. If you are on the internet with this computer then you'll want a reasonably modern operating system (due to the technology and resistance to exploits), and they need more powerful computers. You don't have to buy a new one if you have a good second hand shop, classified ads, or a local Freecycle group. You may even get a nice machine (or the parts) for free.
I doubt you'd even want to bother upgrading it's ram and processor, as it is so old you'll have trouble finding them.
As for ram, if it's a P2-3 slot cpu, it should run off of PC100 or PC133 SDRAM. I'm pretty sure newegg still sells SDRAM, but def not slot processors.
We'll definetly need more details regarding your computer before telling you what to get. Try running programs like everest which tells you about your computer.
Dodga is probably referring to one of the mile old P1/earlier computers. I've had a play with quite a few, and opened and scavenged from quite a few of these early pc's too.
Ram card - im guessing this is the daughterboard. Before ram slots were on the motherboard, there would be a rectangle like slot with multiple pins in whihc u inserted the daughterboard, and the ram into that
Processor card - kinda lost there but is it lyk the P2's? big fat chunky pcb risign from the mobo instead of a socket?
