Its back up fs.

The laptop is in pretty good shape for its age, I bought it in 04. Only reason im selling is I just built a nice computer and dont use this anymore. I took excellent care of it.

It has a small crack in the plastic around the screen on the side. its like .5" big.
You can see where my palm rest next to the mouse. It like wore away the silver paint.

The power jack needs to be replaced. Its a common problem with these laptops. You have to wiggle the power cable for it to power on. A new jack is about $10 shipped on ebay. If you're good with sodering and stuff like that you can fix it for only $10. A local computer repair place around here said it would be about $100 to repair. Dell has great instructions on they website on how to take the laptop apart to get to the mobo and fix the jack. The jack has now broken away from the mobo so you will need a new one.

The cd burner reads dvds/cds just fine, but it doesnt like to burn cds that much. It will burn them, but most of the time nero will say that there was an error.

The audio out jack is messed up as well. It works, but only one speaker. You can get both to work if wiggle the cord around. I sent it to Dell to get repaired a while ago and I think all they did was update the bios...lol

Could use a new battery. The one in it now still works fine tho.

1gig strip of ram and another 256 strip of ram so total 1.25 gigs of 3200 ddr sdram.
