    Salvageing Hardware


    Can any parts such as memory modules be salvaged for spare parts for a new computer. I am thinking about removing the old memory modules to increase the memory of the new computer. I did this a long time ago, but I forget the details.
    One computer is a Dell and the other is a Lenovo.

    Depends if they are compatible , some items are backwards compatible , others aren't.

    Some that ARE compatible would cause new systems to slow down because they run at a much slower access rate than the newer items would.

    There would be much more information about each system needed before anyone could advise , type / speed of RAM in each , etc etc.
