Only problem is the battery doesnt hold charge so you need to use the power adaptor.
Has the usual wear but in overall good condition.

I'm not holding my breath that its worth much lol but need to raise funds for a new one!

Thanks in advance

I have got a cobweb and £1 to give you :whistling:

I'm not gonna be to useful here, but still ... Packard Bell is not a good brand to start with. This was an entry level laptop when it came out and now it's really dated. I guess would be £100, but maybe not even that ...

I would recommend to re-install it before you sell it. If you're a bit technically minded then take it apart and give it a good clean (fans, hdd etc.) this will make it a bit faster again (due to reduce heat) ...

thanks, like i said i wasnt holding out for much really, just about time to get a new one. would deffo reinstall it.

Also would cleaning it make it faster? may attempt it anyway

How much memory?

I'd say with knackered battery £70 - £80 or so . . . . . better than binning it though!

As the dust gets in, all the components can't 'breath' as easy so they're operating with higher temperature and therefore are slower :thumbsup:

is that ram? it says 1.60GHz 192mb ram

The fan on the side of your laptop is probably best place to start ... you'll be surprised what you can find there :)

before xmas i paid £100 for an Acer which had 1gb ram, 1.6/1.8ghz (cant remember) 80gb HDD, dvdrw and the battery lasted about 60mins depedent on usage.

Don't think it will run any faster when its cleaned (don't think Mobile Semprons have thermal-clock throttling which is what slows a chip down when its overheating) - but its a good idea to do so anyway if it hasn't been used for a while!

Doubt you will get even as much as £100 for it I'm afraid - its just a bit too dated and batteries are expensive - and new dual-core laptops are under £300 and netbooks are even cheaper...

Thanks, im just seeing if i can get anything really, i need a newer n faster one. I'd rather raise some funds towards a new one rather than just get rid of this

Good point mate, but other components such as RAM, HDD will be effected by the higher temperature. Not saying that it's going to be miracle, but still worth doing ... don't even want to think what is inside after 4 years of using :-D

Heat only directly affects the component's lifetime and not their speed.

The reason why cleaning it out might help is that CPUs have a heat limit beyond which they cannot operate accuractely (and a CPU that produces random results is useless) so if that's reached the CPU will be told to run at a slower speed which generates less heat.

As jah128 says though, the slowing down is a fairly recent addition and so your particular CPU may not have it, if it was overheating you'd generally expect the fans to be spinning as fast as possible and being fairly loud.

Maybe £60-£80 depending on condition
