I am not a computer guru, I joined this site for educational purposes and to ask questions and get knowledgeable answers. My Mom passed and she had an old Dell demension L400c desktop. I know its outdated on both software and hardware. However, it has sentimental value and I would like to restore it. Could anyone tell me where to start, what am I looking at spending and is it even upgradable? I appreciate any input

Info at http://www.computer-specifications.com/specifications/Dell-DimensionL400c-Specs.html .


IMO...that system is too dated for today's use.


I have no idea what you mean by "restore".  You can maintain the system as a working model of a given era in computing...but, if parts are needed for it...you may find difficulty in acquiring such.


ebay.com would be the best place to start when considering replacement components, IMO.

I agree with Louis. The computer is for Windows 95/98 and only has 32mb of RAM, not even worth upgrading.
