4 Things You Can Do with an Old or Broken Laptop

By December 24, 2013

Follow me on:

macbook-air-project.jpgEven if you think your laptop is beyond repair, there's a chance you can still make use of it. This week, I took a look at DIY projects you can do to repurpose a non-functioning laptop.

The projects depend on what's wrong with your laptop--if it's just the screen or keyboard that's broken or something like that. One project lets you turn your laptop into a desktop PC, while another takes the LCD and turns it into a standalone monitor

The last two suggestions are simply to salvage the still-usable parts: the hard drive might work as an external hard drive, for example, and individual parts could be sold to others who need them for repairing their computers.

Here are the suggestions. If you've got another idea, please share it with us in the comments.

Heya! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
Does managing a well-established website like yours take a lot of work?
I am completely new to operating a blog however I do
write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions
or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

This tea helps naturally get rid of all the toxins, poisons and
impurities which enter our body as a result of the type of
foods we eat, places we go to and lifestyle in general.

Just about all types of free diet applications are simply in the internet.
The purpose here is to reduce the fat intake as much as possible.

Home is where the heart is and the way to reach a man’s heart is the
stomach- so goes the grandmother’s tale. Choosing a
Kohler Kitchen Sink means you are choosing
the best for your kitchen. Put the File pile in the now empty box and place
it in an out of the way but easily accessible area.
