    works fine otherwise, but the screen is completely black.

    i got it 4 years ago and it was nothing special then so its not very fast.

    i dont think i should just throw it out, but what can i use it for?

    ideas?

    yeah, either seed torrents or make it a file server with external hard drives, although i couldn't see it being too quick

    i'm guessing the cost of fixing it would be more than its worth and its probably not worth much to ebay it

    Give it to someone who needs an old, crappy computer that doesn't mind running an external monitor.
