But I don't want to throw the thing away. That would be a waste. So I plan to sell the thing. I could use the money to help pay for a new laptop. But I don't know how to go about this. I have been told that I could get more money if I can get it disassembled and sell the individual parts. Which include a 5GB hard disk, 92MBs or RAM, a AMD K6 processor 433MHz (hopefully it hasn't been damaged), and possibly the screen and CD-ROM drive (24x I believe). If so, I need to find someone who can take it apart for me. Otherwise, I can try to sell it, noting that it has been electrically damaged and giving an estimate on what the repair will cost the purchaser out-of pocket.
If anyone can help me out, please respond.
