- How to store old PC in closet?

rate this thread
as a backup if anything happens to my existing pc which renders it unusable
for a time period(I work at home).
So the old pc is currently in the bedroom closet. Is there anything that
s/b done to it occasionally so it doesn't go bad? You know how a car
battery dies if not used for a while, which just made me recall there is a
battery inside the PC, should I remove that?

If you think it's likely you'd (Or someone else would) ever
try to use them again, you might consider replacing the
battery now, ensuring the bios settings are set right (if
they'd needed changed from defaults), and that they run...
so after having been unplugged for awhile the odds are
better they'll fire right up without having a potentially
dead system you had to troubleshoot (since many boards won't
even POST if the battery is dead... some will, but it's more
common today that they won't, than in the past).
We don't know how old these systems are though, maybe new
enough that a drained battery won't be a concern.
