OK now that I have ur attention I am a garbage man and I found a gateway PC pentium three performance in the trash I had plans of ripping the memory out of it and putting it in my dell but it won't work. Now I just want to keep it as a backup. I hooked it up it starts up windows opens and everything. I can get it to open up like my comp. etc. It is making a noise out of the back where the power hooks up, maybe the power box. I think it is the fan back there would the harddrive make noise too if it were messed up? After a while it would freeze up any help would be appreciated thanks.
