Hi, I have an "in" with our local schools so that when they upgrade their computers they call me & I pick up all the old ones (broken, working, parts, cables, etc) & sort through them only keeping the ones that are easily fixable (the other ones are properly disposed of) this last batch included 9 towers I have gone through 5 so far (the others are just clones of these ones).
I would like to spruce these up by maxing out the RAM (I kept all the ram from the computers that were missing parts) & installing Ubuntu on them & then gifting them to local low income people that are in need of a computer.
The computers seem to all share the same motherboard MSI N1996 they all have different processors & amounts of RAM I also noticed that there seems to be 2 different models of the motherboard one with 2 ram slots & one with 4 ram slots.
Could someone help me figure out the max ram ?
Also any other pointers would be great
