I was a t a local computer shop the otherday getting a few items for my case (I have instore credit) and some guy called asking if they could sell thier 486 2mb ram eisa graphics card 455 meg hdd and so on, he wanted 700 dollars for it. OUCH. They guy who was on the phone with him said well sir you would be lucky if you could get 20 dollars out of it. As a result the guy who called in hung up the phone. It was actualy very funny.
thats not a bad machine for $20 someone tried to sell me a michine yesterday with 32mbram, onboard video (no openGL support), 1Gb harddrive.....you get the idea......they wanted $30
a friend of mines family has this exact system and was trying to sell it for $200 to someone they knew. I laughed when they asked me if i thought they could get 200 for it
Ah, now I know the proper term for what I have, the COA sticker. I would not have that if not for the fact that it was taped on the back of the computer.
The machine looks to be built by a unknown computer builder.
The gentleman I bought it from had it built by a small outfit that went out of business last year.
Has a few usable componets, Maxtor 15 gig 7200 2 meg drive, ATI all in wonder rage 128 vid card, 128 meg pc100 memory, 300 watt ps in a enlight case.
Oh, and now people can call me a liar as I actually own an Intel product, a P3 @ 500 mhz on a Asus mobo.
If it's a Dell or whatever, since you have the COA Sticker you are entitled to get a "Restore" disc
Usually these cost about $10 in "shipping"
I skipped 2000 (and ME) and I was thinking about setting it up an a new build to "play" with it.
The Windows license goes with the machine, not the user...so yes, if you still have that same cd-key for his machine (now yours) you're good to go. It doesn't matter what CD you actually use to install Windows with, only those 25 numbers/letters are what count.
Win 2000 Legal ????????
I picked up an older computer last night for basically free, $20.00.
It has 2000 in it and I received the official MS activation code page of what ever you call it. I asked if he had the 2000 disks (pushing my luck) and he thinks they were taken from his office.He was using this at his business.
My question is sinse he was the legal owner of the OS to begin with and I have the code/lic can I legaly borrow this disk from someone and install it?
