 Post subject: GEM's computer woes....
PostPosted: Mon Oct 06, 2003 6:21 pm 
Well I finally got around to doing something with the heap GEM gave me. Instead of fixing the power supply, I raped it of all the "goodies". I used both hard drives (a 4 and an 8gb). I took the 4gb and built up a PII 300mhz for the college girl, formatted it and slapped ME on it. I took the 8 Gb and threw it in my machine, installed SuSE Linux 8.2 on it and now have a dual boot system (having booted to windows in almost a week now). Anyway, I also found a 256mb ram stick and thought i'd throw that in my machine as well. To my dismay, my ##### started crashing all the time just like GEM would always complain about. After doing a bench mark on the RAM, it was getting errors like an S.O.B! Bummer! I could always use a little more ram to get this old 450 PIII going.

Sorry it took me so long to figure out what was wrong with your old computer George, hah hah!

:D

that you were able to use the equipment Tony.

My computers are now all working fairly well. Even Susan is beginning to enjoy working with her's.

I ended up getting a Dell 400 (Latitute Cpi) laptop. The IBM just wouldn't accept a mic. (Company tried with three other machines, using my hard drive)

I like the Dell better and can highly recommend it. Haven't had any trouble since loading win2000 on it over a week ago.

Good to hear from you again Tony. Going to be joining us at WinterFest this January???

I'm glad you finally dumped the IBM and got another laptop, especially a Dell, George.
