can i have your old pc?

  dfghjkl 19:22 15 Feb 2004

hello,i recently read in a pc mag that millions of old pc,s are dumped every year,and it is causing problems.i belive some are sent to third world countries,but many are just dumped,causing recycling problems.i dont know the figure for this country ,or even the thames valley area,but i only want one,or even some bits.having upgraded my present pc i am left with some components and my three kids are always on my pc and i cant get a look in some nights.what i want to do is build up a pc for them ,i have mobo,cpu,psu,etc.what i actualy need is a monitor,tower (capable of taking an atx mobo with a backing plate)cdrom drive,keyboard and maybe a spare hard drive.or a complete system that doesnt work.i dont need a working pc.i guess it may cost a bit to post so i can collect,i am in the newbury area of berkshire,so reading,oxford,basingstoke etc.i know this may be a bit cheeky,but my mother said "if you dont ask,you dont get".also i dont want to offend anyone by asking,or upset any members of this forum,so i apologise in advance if offended.i have been given an item through this forum before and seen others offered,so hopefully this is acceptable and a one off.thanks,peter.

I have a spare monitor, but I live in Yorkshire

Your a week late for me, I got rid of all sorts last week. I do have 3 15" monitors but the cost to get them to you would be more than they are worth......

I have a 21" sitting about gathering dust.I tried selling it on Ebay,but no-one was willing to pay postage for an item weighing over 35Kilos.Even the PO refused it.I'm out in the sticks(W Cumbria)so its unlikely you would want to travel up here for it.

thanks for your offers,you are good people,hopefully someone in the south is reading this,and can come to the rescue,if not we can start a swap shop web site (you read it here first)

try your local recycling center or council tip as these type of places keep lots of old computers and some get paid to dispose of monitors you would be surprised what gets thrown away
