Where to get parts for my laptop? Answered
I have a Compaq Presario 2200 laptop that was given to me. It has a dead hard drive and a dead CD/DVD drive. I would like to replace both of the drives for under 40 dollars. I am happy to replace them with used (but still working) hardware. The hard drive doesn't need to be over 20GB and the CD/DVD drive doesn't have to be super high speed. Unfortunately Compaq did what is called a tattoo on the hard drive. This means that the hard drive must be replaced with a compaq hard drive not just any old laptop hard drive. Because of this I was hoping to get an old compaq pressario 2200 laptop that has a dead screen or dead motherboard that still has a good hard drive and CD drive so that I can salvage. I looked on EBAY but haven't had any luck so far. Are there any other online places where I could get another old compaq pressario 2200 laptop to salvage parts from? Does anyone on instructables have one?
Thanks for the help.
Anyone who helps me get the parts I need gets best answer.
