I have 2 dead laptops in my possession. Umm, what should/can I do with them? Be
Here are the details. They both have batteries and power supplies etc. The
first one was my main laptop for a couple of years before the processor died.
The second was a friends before it became unstable.
Pentium 200 MMX - it died
800x600 12" TFT - working
72Meg of RAM (I think)
Pentium 233 MMX - working
2Gig HDD present but stuffed I think
800x600 12" TFT screen but won't turn on 95% of the time. Think the power to the
screen is stuffed but the screen itself is ok.
Both are no-name brands. Any ideas? If anyone wants more details let me know.
Does someone repair laptops in this town and need old dead ones for spare parts.
I think all the first one needs is a HDD and processor and it "might" be ok but I
don't have the time or the inclination to find out.
