I tried putting in samsung pc800 ram in my dell dimension 8100 but after I put it in , power didn't turn on so i have to send it back to dell to get computer fixed. Anyone know what the problem is? Dell said that the motherboard has gone, I don't know why?!

Before I send it off, I found a couple of dell dimension 8100 base units on ebay. One of them has a harddrive on 20gb, the other has a 60gb hard drive. My harddrive in my dimension 8100 is 80gb. Dell told me that the data should still be on my 80gb drive. I have some important data that I need to restore. Is it possible if I buy one of the dell dimension 8100 base units, to transfer my 80gb hard drive to the dimension 8100 base unit from ebay without any problems? Would it work?

should work like a charm but u heard from the techtv screen savers that dell uses differant motherborads and what not. but if you manage to get the same exact motherboard it will be no problem.i would ask the seller before you bought it what type it is. the only other thing is windows may detect the change but may not
