So I'm driving down rangeline in joplin today and I see a clearance sign at rentway. All cash prices listed, so wtf I got my bonus check and I saw some bunkbeds from the road so I gave it a look. Went in to pay $125 for the bunkbeds and the manager is bitching about a laptop he got that was trying to sell but the last numbnuts didn't bring back the power cord. He was selling it for $250, so I pipe up well the power cord is at least $100 so then he proclaims he'll sell it for $150. I pop out the cash walk out, get in my truck, drive home, check on ebay for the power cord and right now my bid is $1.04 with 18 hours to go. I know that will raise but not higher than $30.

I am dancing on the clouds right now.

Go to Wal-Mart and you can find a universal for $10.

Just be sure to completely clean the HD and reinstall everything. Those puters from rent-to-own places are treated like $#it and full of viruses. But as long as you take a few basic precautions you got a damned steal.

What year/brand is it?...

Here's my question....

It has windows xp home loaded on it. Which I own a copy. If I reformat the HD and load that, could I use the key on the bottom to activate. They gave me install disks but no copy of windows. Just the license numbers and activation crap.

Not this chord it's different somehow.

2 different plugs or something.

I'm a freaking idiot when it comes to laptops, this will be my first. If it sucks then I'll be selling it on ebay.

Sitting still right now at about $1

The buyer i've zeroed in on is from missouri as well so shipping won't take long plus he's at 99%.

If i can get it fixed for under $20 I'm gonna cream all over myself.

That would be cool.

But only if you were a vegetarian, like this guy
