When I figured out he overwrote my Win 7 drive from Emily before condemning her and installing another 10 for another large Thermaltake case marked Asus I took Alison's drive out and let him find another power supply. I can't lose some data and programs like that if I haven't had the time to back it up...Emily was good while she lasted, but I suspect he's just calling stuff junk trying to be nice. I've known him for years and had to remind him that a lot of this 'junk' came from him...

Anyway, this one is named Mandi. Alison, Valerie and Sandi need help and then I might likely be done with this stuff for a while.

Turns out I just slightly unseated a couple of the DIMMs when I when to put the door back on too hard. Endora is still vexing Durwood.

I have another Dell XPS 420 ready to connect, OEM Windows 7 named Samantha (of course, Endora's daughter).

And like the song Mandy, SHE came and she gave without taking but I took half her RAM away (because I needed another PC2-1066 2GB to set the Dell up). Now I have some setup to do. But I really need to find one more matching DIMM, all I had left offhand was 3 PC 800s.

These beasts are HEAVY! The layout is almost exactly like a Dimension 3100/E310 (in other words, like Emily was) and a little more refined.

I've got 800s and a few 667s as well, I have 3 of those 1066 DIMMs and need a fourth to keep Mandi and Samantha up together, a friend is also looking locally.

I reinstalled FF and I think that fixed the browser freezing problem, we'll see.

Nope, could be a bad DIMM but it's mostly FF running six instances and getting up to 2 GB on one with only 4 GB RAM. I cut the E10 instances to 2 but that's a crock, still sucks RAM like a two bit floozy.

Back to Mandi the DIMM goes and W10. That one works.
