Hi, New to this board but it seemed like a good place to start. I have a older computer that was really outdated so I bought a new Compaq but my question is...the older one had a floppy drive in it and the new one does not. I need to have a floppy drive as I have a sewing machine that reads only floppys. Can I take the drive out of the old computer and install it in the new one? Also I have a Dell that my kids use and it seems to need more RAM...can I take the ram out of the old and install it into the new? I am not a really techy person but can do things if I am told how. Thanks for the help!!
