some of us collectors

by meridenscrafts In reply to Just

We don't like to throw out the old computers. Go to the store and spend all our money trying to buy a new one, we will spend, and spend getting parts to prove to ourselves we can do upgrades. So we will bypass and do it ourselves. It does not mean we are pirates. WE are just trying to save money.

Go for it.

Item returned

by Teejays In reply to Write protection

Today I returned the disk to the dealer from whom I purchased, the dealer who donates most of his spare time repairing old computers for under privilaged children in his area. I explained what was happening and also showed him the replies to my question on this site. He tested the disk and realised he had sold me a damaged disk by mistake and promptly replaced it. The laptop has now been upgraded and my daughter in law is happy. People donate their old computers, monitors, printers scanners laptops to this man and he does what he can with them we also buy items from him to help out with some of the costs he incurrs. He is trusted and admired by many people
