For the some 500 bucks of RDRAM you are looking you see why most won't do this but ebay off the machine and use something else.
HOWEVER if you tossed Linux on it, it could fly.
I have a Gateway 1500 Pro with 256mb of RDRAM memory. I know, I know, most of you are saying throw it away but honestly, it performs very well and only seems to get sluggish when more that 2 or 3 apps are running. Anyway, I'd like to change it from 2 x 128mb (holds 4) to 4 x 256mb. The current memory is Samsung MR16R0828BN1-CK8. Can someone tell me when to look up what this means so I can find compatible strips - I've already tried Gateway and Samsung)? For example, I'm seeing MR18 instead of MR16 and AN1 instead of BN1.
I appreciate any help that you can provide.
Hi - thanks for the reply. I've been watching ebay and thinking that's the way to go. I just want to make sure that what I buy is compatible to my machine.
In the machine is MR16R0828BN1-CK8 (128mb) and what I'm planning to buy is either MR18R082GAN1-CK8 or MR18R082GBN1-CK8, both of which are 256mb. Any thoughts on compatibility?
Linux would be an option but since I already have a Windows license (came with the machine) I'd rather not pay for another license.
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?
