Default New computer

Specs:
AMD Durn Spitfire 1.02GHZ
768MB RAM DDR266
40GB HDD
Onboard 8MB SIS 650
150W PSU <- To change...micro ATX PSUs are not as easy to change.
52X CD Drive
PC CHips M810D CPU Onboard

It used to come with a 30GB HDD, but that drive made Page faults BSOD, IRQL and randme BSODs. The Maxtor diagnostics recommended a full scan, which never went through, due to a lock up and letters showing up in the screen, where it should have not come up.

I thought both SDR and DDR banks were defective, but as I removed the drive, slapped in that LG, and 192MB PC-133, it went through setup. I've shut it down, added an 80mm fan at the back, and the 768MB. No BSOD, the full 760MB shows up and it's running at PC2100.

This computer was given from a mate, who thought of me when they were going to throw that out.

I also got a Packard Bell, but I threw it out...Pentium 133 or 166, 16MB RAM, 1.2GB HDD and all that crap aren't today's standards.
