Question about VIA Computers & Internet
No not compatible! Your system is obsolete, almost impossible to upgrade anything. Socket 478, P4 cpu stuff, is the oldest system with any chance of upgrading or maintenance.Get a 'barebones' new system for $250/300 from the Inet [ ebay or simillar ]/ You will then get some value from the cost of the windows Xp if it is the full version or alternatively you have both original OS disc and windows Xp ugrade disc. If what you buy has an IDE hard drive. you can also install your current hard drive too, keeping what you have on it, as a slave drive after you have put your OS on your new machine plus any cd or dvd on your old machine.All this is simple and within widows framework and tools, no tech skill needed, just a screwdriver and a manual with your new barebones motherboard. Plug the old ide drive into the right socket from the conncecting braid, set the jumpers as per hard drive diagram on the back plate on both drives. One master, one slave.Remember NOT to format your old drive/ LOL/
