One of my BTEC-IT teachers used to do Unit 2 - Computer Systems and as such had a backlog of old outdated computers that were used by the students for the teardown process and for taking pictures of components. He no longer does this and needed the cupboard space and since he knew I have an interest in computers and have an understanding of repair offered them to me so long as I could get them home. I ended up taking them home one by one on the bus and getting them home and this is the final haul.
1x10gb Hard drive
1x40gb Hard drive
1x DVD drive
1x CD drive
1x Floppy drive
4x IDE Cables
5x floppy drive cables
3x Dial up card
1x256 sdram stick.
AMD K6-2 Processor
Looks like a 64mb stick of SDRAM
A PAG-2130 motherboard.
Unlabeled Beige Tower
A Celeron processor
CD RW Drive
Looks to be a LEX bn693x motherboard
Looks like a 32mb stick of SDRAM
A Dial Up card, there is no on-board Ethernet or Dial Up.
A “video card” nothing special, literally seems to just give you a VGA output as no on-board video.
Big ricer case – No side panels
MSI K8N Neo2 – Some dick has ripped one of the chipset coolers off so unsure of functionality.
Unsure of the CPU, Can’t seem to get cooler off (64C Silencer Ultra). Looking at the mobo socket type it’s probably a single core Athlon 64 or s/t.
Bent cased Horizontal tower
Had a random AGP card in a PCI port, was half hanging out
40gb hard drive
A motherboard with tonnes of bloated caps, will need recapping
a 250w psu
Unsure what CPU, probably a duron or s/t
256mb stick of SDram
better condition Horizontal tower 256mb stick of sdram
Motherboard with no bloated caps.
40gb hard drive Unsure of CPU probably a duron or s/t
So now I have a nice stack of computers to find something to do with. My bets are on the better condition horizontal tower and the Patriot system being the ones that are the eventual survivors as they have the nicest cases and chances are I'll get 2/5.
