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!
