you would have to make sure the the board is supported.
its probably an ATA board but you would want to ask Dell.
there's Baby-at, AT, ata etc.
Baby-at is older but i would call dell and ask what size and kind of motherboard it is then you should be able to purchase a case to meet that size without a problem
You may be able too - but that depends on the connection - and if the new motherboard has the same connection (which it probably does)
i have a compaq that i ripped pieces out of and put in a different computer.
Warning: most oem machines havea "tatooed" motherboard. meaning that the restore cds will NOT work on a motherboard NOT tatooed.
I bought a new proccessor and a new motherboard to speed up a year old Dell. But now I also want to buy a new case for my computer. Can I use the older parts from my Dell and use them in the new case and also can I run the older parts off of the new proccessor and motherboard?
I just finished playing ''Call of duty united offensive'' so I deleted it and installed ''Splinter cell'' . When I try to play it all it does is show the splinter cell logo. Tried repairing splinter cell. Deleted and re-installed splinter cell, same results. The thought occurred to me that it was the game, so i loaded Medal of honor (played it many times) same results.
With the program running cpu usage is 99% idle process, 0%MOH.
I tried turning on my Laptop yesterday and got a black screen, it shows the DOS logon then a message reading:
Windows cannot start up because the Windows/system/config/system32 file is corrupted or missing. I read online that someone else had this problem and it continued even AFTER wiping everything out and reinstalling the OS.
Any suggestions? Is this a a virus or am i dooooooooooooooomed?
