Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop
THIS LAPTOP NEEDS A NEW HARD DRIVE which costs about £40.

There is a fault on the hard disc and Windows keeps crashing. The laptop does work at the moment and you can try and run it "as is", but I do believe it will crash again. I noticed that it seemed to crash after installing a big programme (not always).

Two keys are missing. The "i" key and another less significant one that I tried to use to repair the "i" key. This has not presented me with a problem because I found a programme that re-assignes the keys on your keyboard, I think I was using ";" as "i".

The battery is on its last legs. It comes with a charger.

I have made it sound a lot worse than it is, the screen is perfect and the laptop works perfectly well. I bought a new one and normally this would sit around my house doing nothing so I thought I would try and get a few quid out of it while at the same time giving someone a decent laptop.
Shipping/Payment:

There is a Dell Microsoft sticker on the back .

There are a zillion numbers on the back and a sticker with "service tag" on. There may be a serial number on a silver strip with a barcode.

The laptop has never had an XP disc, it was not issued with one, although my pal has given me a copy of a dell installation disc which has worked.

I do have feedback on ebay under the name pinkyslaps although I would not have thought for collection only feedback would not be too important.

I would rather not go through the rigmoral of posting it for the sake of 80 quid. I just thought it would be nice to allow someone to have a cheap laptop

In fact, sod it, if the buyer is a student they can have it for fifty quids.

And if it does not work with a new HD I shall refund the pennies.

I'll offer £70 delivered if you don't get student to buy.Pay by BT

Thanks for the offer but I would rather it stayed local just for my peace of mind. I do not want to be seen to be selling something that is rubbish and it is no hassle just to give a local person their money back and say sorry.

2 tech guys have said the hard drive has a fault and so has the computer itself, but it could be something else in which case a refund would gladly be given and I do not need to lose out on postage etc.

Sorry:-(

Thanks
