Items for sale:
Replacement parts for older computers
I have a small stock of parts suitable for repairs or memory expansion on older PCs and laptops. A memory expansion can transform the speed of your PC!
Flat screen (not widescreen) monitors
If anyone would like an old style (4:3) flat screen monitor I have a couple around 18" - only a fiver each. Good for working with A4 pages!
Why no battery? Laptop batteries degrade with age. This can place a high load on the charger, so it runs hot as it tries to charge a failing battery. Many chargers fail for this reason. I feel this is a fire risk. The battery is not needed if the laptop is running from its charger. You only need a battery for portable use away from mains. By removing the battery the load on the charger is greatly reduced, and the charger runs cool.
