Having problems with your Hitachi PC Desktops ?

I have an old Hitachi Visiondesk 2520. I wanted

\015 I have an old Hitachi Visiondesk 2520. I wanted to put a new motherboard in it. Are there any which would be compatible?\015

Answers :

Yes, many.
\015\012
\015\012That motherboard is from the "Windows 98" era, but Microsoft _has_ tested it with Windows 2000, and found that it is compatible.
\015\012
\015\012+-----------------------------
\015\012
\015\012The Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) contains products that have passed testing with Windows 2000.
\015\012Not every computer and/or device has been tested in all possible configurations.
\015\012Visit the Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs web site at http://www.microsoft.com/hcl/ for the latest compatibility information and to download and install drivers for the hardware listed.
\015\012+-----------------------------
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012One eBay seller is offering RAM (PC100/PC133) for your motherboard:
\015\012http://cgi.ebay.com.hk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220317703040
\015\012
\015\012So, your most-difficult part will be finding a "new" (or "previously-owned") motherboard that comes WITH a face-plate, e.g.,
\015\012
\015\012http://www.hitechlegion.com/images/stories/HowTo_BuildCustomPC/24.jpg
\015\012
\015\012that has the same "perimiter" dimensions as the face-plate connected to your current motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012So, you could try to find a much-older motherboard that is compatible with current RAM, or you could try an older motherboard, such as one with a Pentium 4 CPU, that takes DDR266/DDR333/DDR400 RAM, or you could try a not-so-old motherboard that takes 'DDR2' RAM.
\015\012
\015\012Newer motherboards will have integrated-sound, integrated-video, and integrated-networking, so that your current sound-card, video-card, and network-card won't be needed.
