During cleanup of the IT office (see #1639), we found an old Vaio subnotebook with a defect display. The following needs to be done beside the device's disposal itself:

  • Get feedback from Nadja whether some bookkeeping process is required here
  • Analyze the hard drive(s) and perform backups when required
  • Retrieve, check & store the inlet connector, hard drive(s), RAM chips, etc.

If it's fast enough, we could use it as Skype-Computer for the TV room, as we have the TV as display there.

I told Nadja in January that the device is defect and will be disposed, so it should be removed from the accounting inventary list.

The original power adapter and the battery are also defect.

We thought this device could be used for the new conference setup in the 7th-floor meeting room. But since the display is defect and the external display connections are not active at boot time, it is not possible to install a fresh OS.

So I have now removed the HDD and RAM chip.
The HDD still needs to be analyzed.

It turned out the HDD once belonged to Till.
He wanted to use it as an external HDD, so I ordered an external HDD case for it.
It has been handed over to Till on 2015-03-24
