    I have a dell Inspiron 8000 series with a good screen and good HDD. The keyboard is a little messed up and for some reason it wont accept a windows installation. I was wondering if anyone knew of any projects you've seen posted using laptop components to make anything. I'd hate to just toss this thing, I figure I should try electrocuting myself first. Thx in advance.

    Let me know the spec's and if you are interested in just selling it. I have two teen age kids that could put it to use instead of a huge computer and monitor taking up room in the bedrooms.
    PM is fine.

    You can take the HDD out, buy a case, and use it as an external drive. The laptop HDD are small enough to fit into a pocket.
