My laptop mainboard has died. Opened her up to try and fix her, no luck. So I've completely dismantled her.

I have the following parts to offer away:

  • Screen (17" widescreen, blue top)

  • Bluetooth Module

  • Modem Module

  • Wi-Fi Module

  • Battery

  • Charger

  • CPU

  • RAM

  • Keyboard

All as-is, pick up in Wellington CBD.

Happy to let these go for free to a good home. I.E. to fix other laptops, not to make a profit!

Mine had a busted screen, it packed up totally 4 days ago! otherwise display would have been useful.

Kudos to you for donating the parts rather than trying to hock them off on trademe for 90% of the new prices like most would.

I did actually take the $20 "donation"...

Its going to go towards an external usb enclosure for me to get the data off the drive.

I don't usually try make money off my second hand gear, I just want it to be of use to someone.
