Re: dell dimension 8200 desktop pc

OK, If I remember those dimensions had a specific type of memory. Replacing the hard drive should be ok, but put the original memory back in and try to boot it. see if it works and then let us know. If the memory is not exactly what it wants, the computer will not boot. In regards to support, you most likely would have to pay for support so it should not matter how you got it, the computer is most likely out of warranty anyway.
