.....with a non working lap top? I have a Compaq Presario that quit. Screen not lit. The fan turns on and the CD drive pops out but I can't tell if the HD is working. I tried another monitor. Not wanting to spend the money to get the thing checked out, I'm going to get rid of it. The question is, is there anything useful I can do with it, like give it to Good Will, or should I just trash it?
