I bought a desktop computer at city auction for $19. It was labeled " unknown brand desktop computer"
There was no hard drive or power cord. I bought a Western Digital (WD) Caviar Blue 320 GB (320gb) SATA II 7200 RPM 8 MB Cache Bulk/OEM Desktop Hard Drive for PC and the power cord and I installed Windows 7. That all went smoothly.
It does not have a hard drive holder, I think it is called a "caddy"? I ordered one but the hard drive does not fit in it. The one I bought is a 2.5" to 3.5" Inateck Hard Drive Mounting Kit, what kind do I need to buy to have it fit and fit the computer? This one didn't seem to fit flush within the computer.
It has 4 DVD-RW drives and all are in working order.
It has 1GB of Ram. I need to upgrade this. When I pull the RAM out it says 1GIG DDR400. Can I put a 4GB stick in there? Could I do more? Would I just do a 4GB DDR 400 stick? The memory stuff confuses me.
As far as the brand goes all I can find out is Manufactuer is HP and it has a AMD Athlon 64 processor 2800+ 1.8 Ghz. Pretty weak I know but it just needs to be able to surf the web , watch a movie at most.
I would like to get this computer up and running for my brother. Was also just a little project for myself to get better with fixing comps.
attached are some pics I took
I would appreciate some feed back. Thanks.
