Re: computer F/S

Don't want it. SiS chipset. Pretty much every computer I've seen with a
SiS chipset is 20-50% slower that an equivent Intel or VIA chipset.
Also ECS is the El Cheapo Motherboard manufacturor.

It's got good parts, Hard drives, the burner, video card (Really a good
card), processor. Probably a good case. The RAM and Modem aren't great,
but resellable. Floppy drive and ordinary CD aren't worth much) The
Monitor's too heavy to ship, for it's resale value, consider donating
locally. Wipe the drives, you don't want your credit card numbers

Might want to part it out, put it up on an actual FOR sale group.
Probably get more from it that way. People with old computers are
always needing parts.

Complete, with monitor, I'd put it at Max $200. Once you start counting
the Software as "parts" you can do better.

... but it gets even better, that was one of the boards
which had bad caps on it.

Do you have that list? I think it would be a good thing to have around
the shop, so's i know which ones are potential lemons.

List of bad boards or bad caps?

I've posted a list of bad caps before but it probably wasn't
comprehensive.  As for the boards I've never tried to put a
list together nor seen one but some boards are memorable
because they were so popular, or because I ended up
repairing them.

Here are some of the suspect caps,

but some of these depended on the model and use.  I've seen
a lot of failed IQ caps in the board VRM subcircuits but
even Asus has scattered the smaller ones around their boards
and they haven't had any tendency to fail then, AFAIK.
