Dell Dimension 8300 Upgrade
I have a Dell Dimension 8300, it is used as a secondary computer. I would like to upgrade it to PCI-Express x16 and seeing as it has stopped working, now seems like the time to do so. I have found a new motherboard which has PCI-E, it is a motherboard from a Dell Dimension 8400. From the photo it looks as if it is the same size and shape as my current one. Does anyone know if it will actually work? By the way, the problem with the PC is that when I turn it on, the lights come on, fans work but there is no picture on the screen. I have tested the screen, its fine, also tried spare, graphics card, hdd, ram in it with no success, so i guess it the mobo anyway. Thanks for any help.
