Greetings.
Can you please tell me if there any problems with this PC.
Also condition cosmetically, also what is included - software and bits.

Thanks.

Paul.

Hi PP - absolutely nothing wrong wrong with this except that it is under-used! We now have too many laptops and find that this gets turned on maybe once a fortnight. It is in pristine condition - no cosmetic damage/marks at all - and never had any hardware or software issues. It runs very smoothly, has anti-virus protection and everything is clean and up to date. As for software, you'll have to wait to be surprised! I will get photos up later today.

Sorry. Forgot to ask - which version of Vista is installed ? Thinking of my grandchildren :-)
And would you say it is quiet or a bit noisy ? It would be in the living room.

Cheers.

PP, it's Vista Home Basic. And it is as quiet as a doormouse! Seriously, it is probably the quietest desktop I've ever had and it is in an attractive silver and white (black front) slimline case. Give me a minute and I will post a photo.

Plesae excuse groovy purple carpet. You've reminded me that it must be changed!
#9
Thanks for your responses but I am afraid that Vista basic will be a little too - er - basic
for them.
The photo will probably help the sale though.

Good luck.

Paul.

PS. Hadn't noticed the carpet ha ha.

Ok, thanks. It shouldn't be a problem installing Vista Premium if you'd prefer that? I have several Dell computers with the original installation discs. I'm pretty sure I can overwrite basic - would also be the best way for me to clean the HDD!
#11
That's good of you to offer . The thing that worries me about that is that, should I have to do a
re-install at some time (almost inevitable), I might have a problem with activation.
With various known conflicts with drivers for various things , I am almost bound to have to
re-install a few times . Seems part of life with Vista.

PS Perhaps you would like to sell me one of your other Dells :-) with a midi case .Or is it mini case? Not sure.
But you know what I mean.
#12
Are you open to offers/trades?
#13
Liddle ol' me, is it a seperate graphics card? Or a inbuilt one? Would it play call of duty 4 etc?

Also i take it the graphics card is PCI?
#14
Yes, that's true as I would like to keep the original reinstall disc of premium. However, you would still have the original Vista basic disc which could always be used in the unlikely event of having to do a reinstall. But anyway, yes, I'd prefer not to go to the bother of reinstalling premium anyway. Thanks for the interest - I'm sure it will sell.

GFX is built-in, so no, it's not a gamers machine. It would play those games but you'd probably have to turn off some features. I nearly bought a separate card for it but decided against it as it plays all the games we have with no probs. I'm not really a gamer though, so don't have many of the latest games!

Perhaps. It would depend on what they are though! :)
#17
