    Compaq Presario F500 faulty laptop

    Hi there. I know I can't list here under the 7 day ruling but what would be a reasonable price to accept on following spec laptop please??:

    compaq Presario F500
    2.5gb ram
    15 inch screen
    windows Vista Home premium
    NO internal hard drive
    All lights light up but black screen - when it's turned on the fan also starts up for a bit

    in very good condition (was well looked after) only with some wear to left mouse button and part of the sensor pad

    any [sensible] indications much appreciated :-)

    considering no-one knows what works and what doesnt
    possibly 20 quid, and it would be a rare buyer who has a broken same machine

    I have a F500 ,how do you manage to have 2.5 Gb of ram?,theres only 2 memory slots and each slot holds a maximum of 1 GB:?

    anyway theirs always plenty of these on ebay sold as spares or repair,this should give you an idea what to ask:thumbsup:

    Mine has 1x 512mb and the other has 2gb and work(ed) perfectly well!

    Someone in northern Ireland has offered me £80 Inc postage. Assuming I get them to pay by bank transfer BEFORE I send, it's a pretty good offer isn't it

    ahhh good to know:) all the forums say you can only have 2GB max.,the screen problem might just be the inverter which is a simple cheap fix ,i had too replace the video cable on mine which was also cheap and simple £6.99 but my screen had turned pink not blank so probably not that.

    I think £80 is very good and if i was you would accept it.
