The computer system requirements to
support Internet Bidding are listed on this page. Most computers will meet the
minimum requirements for the PC hardware and Windows Operating System.
We highly recommend a Broadband Internet connection vs.
a dial-up connection. The auction moves at a fast pace, where a slow dial-up
connection may delay your bidding.
In most cases, the only adjustment to your system will
be to download the “Java Plug-In”, item number three on the System Requirements
page. Click on the “Download Java Plugin” link and you will be instructed on
what to do.
Please take the time to review all of the system
requirements to be assured your computer will enable you to interact
effectively with the Car-Tech system.
