Advice on selling a broken laptop on ebay (for parts)
« on: July 05, 2012, 04:50:30 PM »
I have a broken netbook and a broken laptop that I would like to sell on ebay for parts.

Both of these items don't turn on (there's a problem with the charging ports) and I have no clue if there is any personal information on the hard drive
I really don't think there is, but I cant be sure since I have not used either of these in about a year so i really don't remember

Any advice on what to do?
Has anyone sold a broken laptop/netbook for parts on ebay?
TIA

I have sold 2 broken laptops a couple of years ago on ebay... I m pretty sure if you search the website u ll find a model that is pretty close to yours and that is also broken in order to find out an approximate value...

You can just buy a hard drive enclosure for $10 and then format the hard drive to wipe it clean and sell- or use it as an external HD
