I have a number of spare parts, most of which are from a Dell Dimension 8100, different revisions, with different main boards. How do I identify these parts, so all boards will work with each other as a system?
In the past I have reassembled units and came up with any number of errors, flashing lights, beep tones, no/incorrect video, no internet connection, with or without nic card, no audio, and more. I was told that during manufacture, all the installed parts are somehow matched to each other so the system functions. How do I solve this?
I can reassemble about 12 of these units. I would like to give or sell these to needy users. Any help is welcome in terms I can understand.
