Just bought a pc from ebay.... (pictures to follow) HELP!

6y, 6m agoPosted 6 years, 6 months ago
bought a pc from ebay with supposedly 5gb ram, dual core processori, gt 8600 graphics card etc and i am extremely angry..

firstly, i see the way its packaged and it was obviously going to get damaged.
Secondly i bought it about a week and a bit ago after being reassured it had been sent several times it just arrived being sent yesterday..

the front panel was hanging off, as were both the side panels.
All the components inside were rattling about and probably damaged.

I have no idea how to put them all back? There is fans and all sorts.

how do i check how much ram it has? I see 3 modules taken but dont know how to tell how gb it is?

Dont want to put the power into it incase it electricutes me

HELP?!?!?!
I will add pics shortly.

put a claim in to paypal and send it back

It will say on the modules themselves. If not. The best program is CPU-Z (if u can turn it). Download that and it tells you everything pretty much. If your not happy just say not at described on ebay,

if your not comfortable putting it back together just send it back! take pics etc

this happened to me a few years back. Was advertised as 2.4ghz 2gb ram etc. I checked when it came and was 800mhz with 128mb ram. I put in a claim and paypal wanted me to take it to an indepentant computer shop to verify the specs of the machine and gave me 3 days in which to do so. None round my area and I hadn't got means to travel so i lost out. He got to keep the money and sold me a useless computer.

also cpuz is brilliant, but you can just check within windows, control panel and then system.

ive looked on the ram and it is in fact 5gb. However, in one of the corners it says pentium 4 so im not too sure.. maybe just an old case.

Pictures when i can download the stupid phone software.

the pictures are nothing special either, just to help me put the pc back together... showing te pieces etc

What's your location, I may consider helping you out with putting it together. I'll also write a letter diagnosing what's wrong with it :thumbsup:

Best thing to do if there is everything falling off and not all together is to take everything off and build it back from scratch:

Sorry to hear about the troubles, I've thought of buying a PC from eBay a while back but never took the plunge.

I got a good price.. it was 200 quid with a crappy small monitor but its meant to have a gt 8600 graphis card, 5gb ram, dual core 2.0 amd processor and i was going to upgrade it. I'll have to recase it anyway so i might just buy a new pc case and follow them steps because this case is rubbish. Any ideas how to put leds n stuff like the good looking gaming pcs?
Maybe it has them but im not sure.. dno what to look for without turning on.

I think I'm not alone in saying that if you want a really good case then you can't go wrong with antec, they do cases for varied budgets, and the 1200 looks awesome and has led fans which look epic.
