A DVD drive is 20 bucks...If it has a good power supply I'll keep that but everything else goes. I don't drill holes in my hard drive, I don't care if someone recovers my old ****.Do any of you guy strip the computer before sending it to recycling? For privacy or reuse value?
I pulled my cd/re writer out of my old one and was able to reuse a few years later on a new one.
NEW CASTLE, Pa., Jan. 6 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man has been charged with child rape after an electronic notebook he sold at a flea market allegedly contained images of him with a young girl.
Donald A. Miller, 43, of New Castle was charged with two counts of rape of a child; seven counts each of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, indecent assault of a person younger than 13, and photographing or filming or depicting on a computer the sex act of a child; and six counts of aggravated indecent assault of a child, police said.
Miller sold the notebook to a woman at a flea market for $225. The woman brought the device home and took a photo of her daughter. When she opened the photos folder she discovered several photos and videos of Miller sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl, the New Castle News reported Saturday.
A good power supply will run ya more than 20 bucks.As has been stated most parts like power supplies and DVD-RW drives can be had for 20$ or less. May hold onto the RAM modules if they are still usable in another machine.
As for the hard drive they are always fun to use for target practice. I always either physically destroy them, or wipe them with software, 1 pass is good enough with 0's or 1's. Won't be able to recover anything.
Depending on the size of the hard drive I usually just throw it in another machine if its SATA if its IDE I trash it.
