ok, the hard drive thing is the least of my troubles now. I'm on my gf's computer now, as it appears I've fried my motherboard.
I had a feeling I was jumping inside the case too soon, but I figured I couldnt harm the old 450mhz, and so what if I did?
Live and learn, right?
Yes, I'm sure the MB is fried, it doesn't even beep when I pull the memory out.
I guess my next question, since I have all these parts, is what motherboard type will be compatible with what I've got? I just bought a Santa Cruz Turtle beach sound card, and a Nvidea g-force2 video card, and have a 256 mb PC133 memory stick.
I'm here for your amusement, so dont be shy. I couldn't tell one motherboard from another.
