THE LED (AND LASER) MUSEUM
NEEDS A REPLACEMENT MONITOR ***AND*** A USED WIN 98-CAPABLE COMPUTER
Just like it reads above...The LED (and Laser) Museum needs a replacement monitor AND a replacement (well-used) desktop computer (preferably a Gateway 2000 from circa. ~2000 to ~2002) that can run Windows 98.
The reason is that lightning struck & destroyed my lab computer (THIS IS IMPORTANT! IT IS USED ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY FOR RUNNING MY ProMetric 8 Beam Cross-Sectional Analyser) approximately one week ago (as of 09-05-13); though I think I can salvage the hard drive -- the same bolt of lightning also seriously damaged my Asus VW246 24" Wide-Screen LCD Monitor -- see the photographs to see what I'm speaking of here.
My mother's computer was also destroyed by the same lightning strike; hers operated using Windows XP. I'm as-of-yet unsure if her printer was damaged or not.
This spot is growing visibly larger every day; now (09-04-13)
it is approximately 4" (~10.160cm) in diameter!!!
Specifications needed on that computer:
A LEGACY GATEWAY 2000 COMPUTER WOULD BE IDEAL HERE!
- Must be able to run Windows 98 from an IDE hard drive that I'll install myself (it survived the lightning attack -- the rest of the computer didn't even though it was connected to a surge supressor!)
- Needs at least 1MB of RAM (though I could probably do with 512K or 640K).
- Needs to have a 16-bit PCI slot (for the ProMetric's imager board; see below).
- Needs to have a DB-25 serial port (for the ProMetric's security dongle; see below).
- Needs to have at least 1 USB port; though prefereably two.
- I'd prefer a tower configuration; though a desktop-style would be kosher.
I don't need the monitor right away (the display on my Dell Latitude E6400 Laptop Computer will suffice in the interim), but I do need that computer in order to resume producing beam cross-sectional analyses.
These are the ProMetric's video capture board and the security dongle.
If you can get your hands on the computer and/or the monitor, please send them to The LED (and Laser) Museum at:
