Compaq TC1000 Tablet and Windows XP Tablet Edition DVD 2005

Two separate deliveries ordered at different times both turned up today and they 100% complement each other...



The tablet didn't come with a hard disk drive (luckily I've been buying a few up on eBay just for times like this) so I needed the second item to be able to get the correct OS on it!

Scanning 21 IDE Hard Disks For Errors

Today I have spent most of the day watching Doctor Who with Martha Jones as the companion whilst scanning 21 IDE hard disk drives I purchased off of eBay for errors and bad sectors:


  • 10 Dead or Alive But Clunking and Not Detected By Windows
  • 2 Alive and Just About Kicking But Had Some Bad Sectors
  • 9 Passed With Flying Colours!

Compaq Presario R3000 and Compaq Presario C500

Todays car boot sale haul was just a couple of newer retro laptops:


As you'll see from the next photo, there is quite a bit missing from this laptop - but then it was only a fiver so worth it in case I need the keyboard or screen (assuming they work that is).


The next one, cost £15 because it apparently is in 100% good working order, once I find a power supply for it I shall see how true that is...

Imation SuperDisk LS-120 USB 120MB Floppy Disk Drive

An Imation SuperDisk LS-120 Floppy Disk Drive arrived in the post today! Works perfectly in Windows XP but I can't find a driver that will make it work in Windows 10 which would be the icing on the cake!
