Ok. If Peter is willing I am sure we can sort it between us. Peter.
let me know if you need anything and I'll see what I have. I can
always pull some memory from my PC if it's compatible just to test it
out. I've also got a spare board but whether it is comptible with
your memory we don't know yet.
As a loose guide, what CPU do you have in the PC?
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but, PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
