3 Cards - What are they for?
I acquired two Dell PC which were previously networked. I installed new OS on one (Windows XP w/Service Pack 2). It is up and running okay. I connected the 2nd Dell and it rang out a series of beeps. The 2 are exactly the same with one exception, I noticed 3 cards are missing from the one not running yet. I took the 3 out of the one, put them in the other and it works fine. Installed the new OS and it is okay. My problem is I don't know what these 3 cards are. I have written down the #s off of them. How do I find out what they are and/or what they are for?
I also acquired 4 IBM's with the same situation. Have to install new OS as they were previously networked and I can't get past the cntl-alt-del and password prompt. I've not worked on a IBM before so any info is appreciated.
