To people who want it. If more than one of you does, we’ll have to rock-paper-scissors or something.
This computer is a couple years old, and some parts are older than that. It began life as my brother’s desktop computer for him to cruise the internet, download spyware and use Limewire. More recently, it was the computer used by the autistic kid we took care of. It has not been used since he left; before that, I had it functional (after one of the several times he downloaded too many viruses and I had to reformat the system). I have no reason to believe it is currently non-functional, though it could certainly use a bit of cleaning.
Details and pictures below the fold.
The system is built on an ASUS K8V-MX motherboard, with an AMD Sempron processor (I want to say it’s the Socket 754 Palermo 2800+, but I can make no promises). I believe that it has 1GB of RAM. It’s at least 512MB.
You can also see two PCI cards here. The bottom one is I believe a Soundblaster Live 24-bit, while the top one is a LinkSys Wireless (802.11b only) networking card. A view from the rear:
It’s a bit blurry, but I think you can see everything alright. The antenna was removed from the wireless card for transport; it’s sitting in the pile of wires on the right.
As you can see here, there’s two optical drives. The lower is a DVD drive that was salvaged from a dumpster behind Milwaukee PC, the upper is a CD-RW (I think) that was pulled from an old e-Machine. Also included is a floppy drive, for all your classic gaming needs. I’m nearly 100% positive the front USB ports are functional, but as with everything in here, I can make no promises.
Here’s the backside of the floppy, as well as the topside of the hard drive. I don’t know what its size is offhand, or what its actual state is. I was beginning to get concerned that it had bad sectors; it was one of the pieces to get pulled from an older system.
Not sure what this is worth to any takers, but this is the license sticker for a legit copy of WinXP Pro that’s installed on the system. If you can provide an appropriate disc, here’s a license key. If you don’t need it…well, whatever.
So, that’s the offer. I’m not asking for payment; if there’s no takers, this is probably going to be trashed. If you want, there’s also USB mouse and keyboard available (filthy), and a 17″ CRT monitor. Let me know.
