Where's my 'original' PC gone?

  Seth Haniel 16:05 19 Oct 2009

it's now had :-
3 x 'C' Drives (200mb, 250mb & 320mb)
New Tower Case
New Power Supply
Extra fan fitted
4 x Motherboards (2 x ABIT both faulty - now an ASUS)
3 x Memory changes ( 1 x 1GB, 2 x 512mb , 1 x 2GB)
WiFi card removed

only original parts now are the CPU and the Graphics card

hopefully have a few uninterupted years use now :)

Good grief, you have not exactly been blessed with the best of luck have you? Hope this incarnation lasts longer than the previous ones :))

I have made several graphics card changes and a few others here and there, but 4 motherboard changes?! Thats the hardest thing to change too!

Who assembled the `original` PC, can you remember? :-)

It's as original as Trigger's original sweeping brush... the one that had four new handles and 10 new heads (or something like that).

You must be on first name terms with Microsoft Windows verification now ;o))

My old Evesham PC went belly up 2 weeks before the end of it,s 3 yr gaurantee. When it came back the only piece of my original computer in it was one of the 2 CD drives. even the case was new.
I do wish they hadn't gone bust

It's like the old joke about having a spade for 40 years but in that time it's had 4 heads and 7 handles...
