That's like asking if I put a key into the ignition, would the car turn on?

We can't really know till you try.

As long as the parts are compatible, yes. What motherboard are you trying to use and what parts do you want to put on it?

Default Re: Motherboard Question

there should be information about the board written somewhere on it like a model number. Once you find that you can google the model number and get all the info on the board. If you can't find it anywhere you could try and post a pic of the board on here and someone may be able to point it out or tell ya more about it..

Also you said you found it in the garbage was it in a prebuilt machine or a custom built case. If it was a store bought machine maybe the brand and model of it may help as well....

the model number and brand are usually printed on the PCB somewhere...

Doesn't matter. It's still going to have identification on it somewhere. It's not like Wal-Mart sells GreatValue MBs...

It was an attempt at a joke/analogy.
