Adding memory to Dell 8200

by fenwickde / May 13, 2010 10:47 PM PDT

I have an old Dell 8200 with 512 mb memory with a bad hard drive.
I recently purchased on ebay the same model. It has 512 mb memory also. Can I take the 512 mb out of my computer and add it to the other computer?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
