| Wait, so the first one you didn't let them repair it under warranty because they had to check it out to confirm what the problem was? Second one sounds like a GPU problem. The previous owner probably knew about it which I'm guessing is why they were selling it cheap.|
Never toss components though. You'd be better off putting it up online for $20 or something. Chances are someone will find something of use out of it and it's a lot more likely to be properly recycled or at least have as many working components pulled from it as possible that way.
After I told them that I had the same problem again, they immediately refused to do anything. Which means they didn't even want to check it. And I bought that laptop brand new with my aunt. There was no previous owner, it wasn't even cheap. The second one was cheap tho.
And it had only integrated graphics processor, so it wasn't really fixable. And I did put it up online, but nobody wanted it for over 2 months. I don't store laptops anywhere, I just take some parts out and toss it. I don't do that with desktops tho, I either give them to my friends or use the parts in other computers.
