Another "Freebie" for shipping. I have a Dell Venue 5130 Pro (32Bit) This is a Windows 10 tablet 64GB EMMC (I think) 2GB Ram Intel Atom (The slowest thing ever does not even handle SD YouTube that well) you are welcome to have it for the shipping fees, it uses a special Dell USB to 19.5VDC adapter however it will charge (slowly) with a 5VDC charger. I am keeping the Dell adapter though as I have another Dell Venue that uses it.

I will definitely take it if still avail. I keep a netbook in my car for diagnostics that run off obd to a windows machine and web use when I don't have access to a real computer. Can't be any slower than my netbook with a 1024x600 screen.
 
since Format _C: is sending me that tablet, my netbook will be available to anyone who wants it once I transfer my data over.

It's an asus eee pc with an atom N450, 1024x600 screen (you can force higher to actually fit stuff on the screen but native is still 1024x600), I think it is upgraded to 2GB. Specs are basically this but I'm not sure the exact model number: https://www.cnet.com/products/asus-...windows-7-starter-1-gb-ram-250-gb-hdd-series/
It's slow. Really slow. Like, really slow. But it ran a basic piece of software for me fine once it booted so I didn't complain. I think it has windows 7 starter still on it (I think I upgraded it to 10 once and realized I'm an idiot for doing that and reverted it). Up for grabs to anyone who can use it, comes with ac adapter and a zip up sleeve case.

Ever try linux on it?
 
I had one of those eee pcs. Linux was much better than Windows. The windows sound driver wanted to take up 25-50% of the CPU all the time, unusable for even Skype (this was back in 2013). Basic SSD is a requirement to make it bearable, although any 32-60 GB old drive is fine.
 
It is time for another "old shit I'm tired of looking at that I've got quadruplicates of". Lot of this stuff is older, so it probably won't see much interest, unless you want to play with some really vintage gear. Whatever not taken is going to the dump/recycling. Keep in mind that shipping will be more expensive for the larger things. All of the machines are working. If you want specs and/or machine history, send me a PM.

Dell Dimension 4600C
Dell Optiplex 210L
Dell Latitude C400 (no battery, comes with PCMCIA DVD-ROM and external drive bay)
Dell Inspiron 1300
Quadro NVS 295 (dual DisplayPort out)
ATI Radeon 2400XT PCIe (DMS-59 W/ VGA Pigtail)
Geforce 2 MX440 AGP
Geforce 7100GS PCIe
Asus P5GC-MX/1333
 
This is a long shot but does anyone have the mounting hardware for a Deepcool Captian 240 EX? Apparently during a recent cleanup I have lost the threaded nuts that space the retention bars above the capacitators.

Can you show a picture? I've used a few Deepcool HSFs that I've mounted with my own hardware, so I may have some of the stock hardware around.

Its the bolts circled in the picture. I have the older one that just broke but the new model was just sitting in the box its just missing those 4 bolts.

Does anyone have a spare laptop LCD laying around? I was thinking about cobbling together a portable monitor from one of those Chinese driver boards for the hell of it. I'm not super picky on resolution or size, but I am looking for a panel in decent shape that is new enough to have an LED backlight and not CCFL. I am willing to pay you to ship either just the panel itself or the entire "carcass".

I have an original Raspberry Pi Model B and a Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 up for grabs. Just pay actual shipping. Both worked the last time I used them. Been in my parts bin for a couple years.

EDIT: GPU is gone

pm sent on the gpu
 
Just checked, the mounting hardware I have is different. Could you just go to the hardware store and get some nuts and washers? It seems like stacking them up to the right height would work just as well.

yeah. that was actually my fall back plan if you didnt have it.
 
Anyone have any DDR3 laptop ram available? Bought a cheap laptop to use but I would like to get at least 8gb for it. Hoping to find 2x4gb kit for it.
 
I bought a Hauppauge HVR-2250 on eBay the seller gave me a SnapStream Firefly with no RF receiver I was wondering if anyone has one they can spare (or the whole kit if you want to sell it cheap).
Also does anyone have the Low-profile bracket for said TV tuner? I have the one for the actual tuner board as it was installed in a PCI-E 1x to PCI converter device just the bracket for the extra input board and or the special AV 1 dongle.

PS: the picture is what I am after I don't have one to give this is the part I am after
Thanks
