I'm replying because nobody else has. Mostly because in order for anyone to be able to help you they're going to need more information.
Are you able to determine the model information for your motherboard? If not do you know if your motherboard has a PCI-Express slot?
Do you know how much power your power supply is rated for?
Also are you sure you have 2MB of RAM and not 2GB?
If you're able to let people know specifically what program you're attempting to run that might help as well.
thanks for your input and you're right. not enough info and yes 2GB not 2MB....obviously rushing that day...
since that writing i was able to track down the guy who actually built this box about 4 or 5 years ago and he told me of the limitations even though it was ahead of its time (back then) and that i'd be better served with a recent workstation...rather than spending money on a temporary, so-so fix that will end up being a boat anchor anyway. i had to agree having been down this road in the past...
with that said, i'm on the hunt for same...
again, thanks for taking the time to offer advice and should i have future questions here i'll be sure to provide vivid details!
My apologies for not replying sooner but was away on business and
then jammed thereafter.
First thanks for the efforts to answer my queries.
Second, after tracking down the original builder of this box from 4-5 years ago, I've decided to keep this unit dedicated to my sound recording and other similar tasks and bite the bullet on a new workstation for heavy graphics/and basic video type work.
Again, thanks for the attempt in helping! Appreciated.
