Is there any organisation that can make use of old computer spares. I have upgraded a lot of my components recently and dont really want to just throw away the old ones. They work perfectly. I have a cd writer and a 32mb Radeon graphics card. I think it would be a waste to just throw them into the bin and they are not worth selling on as at this stage they are worthless.
Try your local council. They may have a list of possible companies or charities, that deal in the type of equipment that you have available. But I should warn you, that alot of these companies only deal in bulk, due to high administrative costs.A couple of items, that may or may not work, when assembled in another machine, just wouldn't be worth collection. Try the local freebie adverts, or contact someone like the local scouts or youth group.
do as i do give them to any friend/workmate who has no machine and wants to try out computing but doesn`t have spare money to try it.or as a friend does use it as a spare machine to learn more of how a compter works i.e. registry/bios e.t.c.
