In the workshop there's a black Dell Studio 1558 laptop that Richard donated. I don't think it powers on, but that might just be a case of needing a new power switch - there are a couple of wires hanging out on the right which might just need a pushbutton soldering onto them?!?

Anyway, somebody should spend some time trying to get it up and running again. If we get it working, we should wipe the hard-disk and reinstall a fresh copy of Windows 7, then maybe it could be a spare machine, or one to run the UP printers?

If your interest is still live (given my tardy response :-) it's in the green crate on the bottom shelf of racking in the workshop.

I'll see if I can locate the laptop when I do an inventory on Thursday.

When I was commissioning the other PCs for #356 I made an attempt at some notes on a standard software install base, with associated files which I think @amcewen has archived somewhere.

Might be worth taking a look at
