Can I salvage anything for sale or even giveaway? Sad story. A year or two ago someone gave me an Alphastation 255 without a hard drive. It booted up into AlphaBIOS. and had a working scsi CD player. It has 233Mhz CPU, not the 300 Mhz. Well, I finally got around to installing a new scsi hard drive, and something on the board sparked and died. Now it doesn't boot. So, can sell or even give away parts? PCI PowerStorm 3D30 (PBXGB-CA) Graphics card? Old RAM Memory? Is there a market for the CPU itself? I also have a Symbolics CD which if supposed to launch from within DEC unix/Tru64. Doesn't work with emulators.
I'm not sure if there's any point in listing these items for sale since there's not the nostalgia of home computers, or the historical value of "big iron."
