The two most obvious places...Craig's List & e-Bay.

Already tried Craigslist and I don't really feel like paying for an account on eBay.

What was the problem with Craig's List...no one was interested? If so...you just need to keep reposting it till you find an interested buyer...or maybe your selling price is too high.

As far as e-Bay...you don't have to pay anything for an account...you just have to pay the e-Bay fees if your item sells.

These are really your two main choices for selling a computer. Of course you could advertise in your local newspaper...but I don't think that's going to be very effective.

CL and eBay will definitely be your best bets. Just be sure to explain the problem clearly and maybe even give an estimate of what it would cost to repair. Post clear, large photos and just keep re-listing it and adjusting the price as Nick suggested.

I sold a 9 yr old car that needed $1200 of repairs in one day for $100 over asking price due to so many interested parties. It's not hard at all.

I had a similar experience selling a car on Craig's List. I was selling my mother-in-law's used car. It was actually worth about $1700 (no major problems)...I listed it for $1500 and sold it for $1350...in one day!

@phill47...

Buyers in someone's local Craig's List area are almost always looking for everything most seller's are selling...and if it's priced correctly...things can sell fast!

On the surface a non-working computer may not seem very attractive...but then again...there's almost always someone looking for broken computers:

- owner's who need a part to get their computer running again
- "repair guys" who are always looking for spare parts

If you use e-Bay...you're advertising to a MUCH larger audience...and your chances of selling at a higher price are better (but e-Bay has it's downsides as well.

EXACTLY! The guy who bought my car was giving it to his daughter as a HS graduation gift and he was a mechanic or had a relative who was and could fix it for much cheaper than what a garage would charge. You just have to be clear about what issues it has because people DO NOT like surprises if they show up at your house and especially if they had to drive a good distance.

Yeah...I had one of these experience recently as well. I was interested in purchasing an old 36" CRT TV for use with my PS3...in my basement. Drove about 15 miles to look at it & probably buy it. Got there & immediately noticed that it didn't look big enough to be a 36"...got out my tape measure & it measured 32"!

It was not what I really wanted...but the seller agreed to my extremely low offer...so I took it...and put it in my guest bedroom. But I really wanted a 36" TV...so in some ways it was a waste of time...since I still had to find a 36" TV.
