Question about Computers & Internet

I might be buying a used computer for dirt cheap...

I might be buying a used desktop computer for dirt cheap. The owner says he bought it back in 2008. He didn't know the specs himself. What are the overall/general specs of most desktop PC computers made in 2008? Like what can I expect before I make the trip out? It's running windows XP too. Thanks :D ~

Hi Thanks for your question
This question is very difficult because you don't know if this is a high end spec machine or just a Supermarket product. General specification for two year old machine of a medium standard is something like that.
2.5Ghz Dual core processor 2-3 GB RAM 350 GB Hard Drive
Hope this helps to make your mind, but like I say this is a VERY general question. Good Luck

Download pictures to computer


Hello and welcome to FixYa

Please go to a electronics store and buy a USB card reader. I bought one last week and it cost $0.5 so its cheap as dirt. Then simply remove the card from your camera , pop it into the reader and the pictures will appear on a drive like a flashdrive in your my computer folder.

This is a much better option than using the camera's cable as it is faster , safer , saves on your camera battery and you don't need to install any software or drivers.


The card reader will most likely also still be compatible with any new camera you buy in future.

Kind Regards

Trying to get an eithernet driver for this machine


You may be better off adding a new Ethernet card instead since this model has had onboard ethernet problems in the past. I have even had to remove ethernet chips from these PC's just to get the computer running again. Ethernet cards are dirt cheap and quite easy to buy at office max, office depot, bestbuy, walmart and other places.

Mic does not work at all


Your problem is you bought it at walmart. I always say buy cheap get cheap. Go to best buy or a computer store and get a good mic. Before you do that try checking for a loose connection at the pc plug in. Also if anyone else uses your PC try checking your settings, someone may have turned the mic off.
