      If you're still interested, I have an old dell laptop that has 2 major problems.

      1. It's cd-rom drive does not respond 3/4 of the time and it falls out easily.

      2. Sometimes on the right half of the keyboard, the punctuation marks don't respond, so you have to pound the keys and they work again for a good 5 minutes.

      If you still want it PM me.

        I've seen this before on laptops, and found that (if it is out of warrantee) you can sometimes fix this by disconnecting and reconnecting the keyboard ribbom connector, or re-seating it. (Requires opening up the laptop.)

        If you fix the keyboard, you may be able to increase its value, but paying for new parts is usually a money pit.

        (Of course, if you break it more while fixing it, that helps nobody.)

          I have no nic or modem in mine, but they are easy to get, especially at Defcon!
