Computer Help Again
Posted 22 May 2012 - 10:49 AM
I added a new (correct) Video card and it corrected the resolution problem. However, it didn't correct that the color Blue is missing from most sites.
Here's my question. I can get a bare bones computer, AMD 6 core 3.6 Hz processor, New MB, etc. for around $350 with case, memory (Both of which I don't really need).
The package doesn't come with any OS. Can I install my Windows7 HD in this? Seeming as HD's are pretty much plug and play, I'm thinking that it shouldn't be a problem to canablize my older system and add to my new system.
I also have that 1 gig video card and a new 600W power supply to replace the 450W that comes with it.
As long as I can plug in my old HD that has Windows7 OS, I shouldn't need to spend the money to get a new license.

i'm not sure the bios will be compatible. may have to wipe and do a full install.
I'm hoping that since I'm using the same manufacturer of MB's, the Bio will be compatible. I hate the thought have having to wripe and start over. but if I do, I do.

Trying to clustergug your old install onto a new hardware setup is fugging ridiculous.
Either way you'll probably face a microsoft gauntlet to get the new hardware config activated,

We have had very little success using an image for one hardware profile on a different hardware set even when the hardware is very close in spec. Two Dell machines that were built a year apart but are almost identical from a spec standpoint will almost never use the same image.
All that to say I'd be shocked if it worked. Windows is stupid picky when too much of the core hardware changing.
