PC Trash Find - Budget Gaming / Music PC - Cheap - Part 1 Teardown 

This is a start of a new video series where I teach all of my computer design tricks from a PC I found in the trash.  I start with the basics of cleaning, troubleshooting and taking apart the PC.  The Computer is a HP Pavilion 8750C, with a 667 Mhz Processor and 64 Megs of PC100 Ram.  My original plan was to just see if I could get the computer to work and see if Windows 98 would boot up and I had the idea to see if it was possible to do any kind of music design or production on a computer that was originally build in 2001.  However, that idea quickly diminished, due to how motherboard inside the computer was found to be inoperable (coated with a think layer of caked on dust).  The good new is I have another motherboard (ASUS K8N-E), which is a lot better and will fit perfectly in the case.  The next video will be about installing the new motherboard and what I am using for the video card and sound card and how we can turn this old POS computer found in the trash into something really fun on a cheap budget.

Mission: Computer design tricks where I start with the basics of cleaning, troubleshooting and taking apart an old POS PC.  Goal is to hack everything and upgrade to a cool Music Design or budget Gaming PC.   I like to use cheap parts and turn old computers found in the trash or thrift stores into something really fun!
