Re: Question on a dell to dell swap
I would think that as long as the motherboard holes line up you shouldn't have a problem. I just recently installed a motherboard from a Dell Optiplex 170L into a case for a Dimension 2400. One thing I did have to do though is to move the little standoffs that the cpu heatsink bracket bolts to. But that was minor, the case had the other holes I needed, all I had to do was unscrew them and move them to the other holes.
Try it and see what happens.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!
I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
