Wanted to either repair and use or to use as a unit to practice case mod's.
open to offers for broken/spares laptops and pc's as i like to dabble in a bit of geekery.

Ebay ID available if needed.

Once you fix the screen for aroud 40 pound, you can sell on for around 280-300 giving u a nice profit

Have got a Packard Bell Easy One DC laptop with a faulty display - it works through an external monitor though.

Comes with a spare battery and could throw in a laptop case too.

Would sell it for £60.00 including delivery.

I'm not sure tbh, it's about 6 years old.

Not sure on a price really, so if £60 is too much let me know how much it would be worth (bearing in mind it comes with a spare battery and case)

I've got a laptop here, it's fairly old one so ideal to get yourself started on repairing them / having a play.

The fault is it needs a new operating system installed, the hard part is that it doesn't have a disc drive and it can't boot from a USB flash drive (only a USB floppy). To install a new OS you'll need to take the laptop apart, take the HDD out connect it to a desktop pc internally (you'll most likely need to buy an adapter for that) install dos 7.1 to the HDD using a bootable disk in your desktop and then boot into windows and copy the i386 folder from a windows disk to the HDD. Put the laptop back together and that should go.

The laptop is a 10.4 inch Fujitsu Samsung lifebook B series, it's in very good condition and comes with 2 batteries, 1 mains adapter and a leather case for it. It's touch screen the specs are 30GB HDD, 256MB Ram, 500MHZ processor, 2 USB ports, 1 VGA output, 1 Ethernet port, 2 pcmcia slots. Not great but they do meet the minimum required for XP.

If you're interested in that i'll work out a fair price but i'd rather trade it really if you're up for trades?

Was hoping for it to be nearer to home. Was looking to build a pc for someone tho so would have been ideal. Do you know how much you wanted for it all and p&p?

i would prefer not to post, as postage i do not think would be feasible.
its around 2 hours to manchester from birmingham.
So i could meet you half way, of course we could work out a deal with me for it.
Drop me a pm, then i can make a topic about it to make it all kosher.

and also not to hijack.

tbh im not sure about if i have any tradable stuff, as i just moved house and got rid of most of my pc repairing stuff, ie old hard drives/mobo's.
Im from Lancashire, so really for trade it would be preferable if your near by.
Right, im going to give everyone an example of what im looking for,
something like a dell inspiron 6000 (around that age anyway) so...2005+.
I dont mind what fault it is, so long as the laptop hasnt got water damage, ive repaired sony vaio's/dells/tosh before so nothing will really be too tricky.
thanks,
Isaac

got a couple of laptops here ones a pentium 2 and the other is a k6 (sure its about 500mhz ish)

both not working, p2 is tempramental with turning on i think
k6 im pretty sure works fine, but the pin where the power adaptor plugs in has fell off inside, so needs opening and soldering back on

not too sure on condition as i havnt used either in over a year, but would be after 50+pnp/pickup for both
