In regards to my Motherboard

By Tink! ·
Thanks to all of you who helped by answering my questions last week in regards to my poor dead motherboard and the different hard drive interfaces.

I've only ever added a hard drive, never swapped and I've never had to install a mobo before.

Since then my problem has been solved thanks to my daughter. She wanted a laptop and Walmart just happens to have one for $300. Yup $300! I was, of course, skeptical but I googled for problems and there didn't seem to be anything drastic so I let her buy it for herself.

It's an Acer Aspire 5251-1513. The processor is as fast as our current home desktops.

Now that she has the laptop she gave me her desktop (which is exactly like my dead one) into which I added my SATA hard drive and all is well again.

I read, "motherhood". All the same.

Glad to hear, as to both.

I'm glad to hear that your whole computing family is back computing again. B-)
I still think you should build yourself a 'puter someday.

A one-to-one ratio of people to computers is best. Too many of either and you run into the missionaries and cannibals problem.
