Please not these were taken from an old computer which was running XP no problem. I am not a computer expert and don't know a lot about them so if my pricing is dodgy just let me know and I will amend it.
Also I din't know what all the items are so hopefully you can tell me from the pics!

Floppy Disc - £7.50
20GB HDD (how do I wipe this of my info and format it? any help repped!) - £7.50
128mb + 256mb RAM - £5
Sound bit - £5
All cables: £5
Power Supply (says Pentium 4 on it) - £10
2 other pics - £5 each (don't know what they are!!!)

As I said my pricing may be way off please let me know and I will put it right. Would like to sell all together to 1 person but obviously will split.
Shipping/Payment:
Postage included in price.

Plug it into an existing computer via an ata cable, right hand click on it in 'My Computer' and choose the format option (dont check the quick format option).

Another option if you havent got another pc to plug it into is to use a Windows CD to boot from and use the disk format option from the Windows setup screen - delete all partitions, create one whole new partition, format new partition, etc.

There are other hardware tools you could use, like an pata to usb convertor or a usb caddy, but if you havent got them to hand or know someone that has them they will cost money so not really an viable option.

To wipe the HD, maybe Eraser will help.
