Whether it is for the old parts or for some DIY, you can get quite a value from your old laptop that can actually be further reused for many purposes. What do you plan to do with that old laptop?

In computer recycling, they recycle and extract the valuable metals that are actually present in it like gold, aluminium, copper and much more. Well, if you are curious to know about the many parts that can actually be used, we will take you through.

1.   Use the old Battery packs:

Battery packs in laptops are quite unique. Most laptops have one unique kind of battery packs, and when you go ahead and replace your laptop battery packs, it costs you money that is huge. So, check if your old battery pack has some battery left as it can actually mark a difference and save you some money. In computer disposals, battery packs play a crucial role and people sell it for huge.

2.    Power supply can help you through:

Next, comes is your laptop’s power supply. It is of another importance and what is true for battery, the same is true for power supplies. Power connector changes with the model and once you trash off your old laptop, the power connector becomes of hardly any importance. What if you can try your hands in the second’s market and resell it? If it doesn't sell, try keeping the power cable, it can be useful for new laptops.

3.    RAM can never be dumped:

Changing or extending your RAM is costly. We all know it. During old computer recycling, RAM or the memory sticks can easily be extracted. There are different types of RAM; they differ in shape, size and in storage capacity. You will be happy to know that memory technology doesn’t change that often and you have a chance to use the same old memory device to your new one. The old unused RAM sticks can easily fit in the new laptops and that way you can build your own memory.

4.    HDD/SSD holds essential data:

As they say, an old hard drive cannot be used to store your confidential data. True! However, you can use it to store non-essential data like music or movies. HDDs and SSDs are easy to remove and reuse. Mount it in a USB case and use it as an external drive.

5.    Display is worth something:

Potentially considered, the display is one of the most crucial parts in old computer recycling. That LCD removal is the toughest part but if you get to do it, you can earn good money.

6.    CMOS battery is an emergency Savior:

The CMOS battery is a kind of coin cell that sits on the motherboard. It is responsible for powering low-level systems while your laptop is still turned off. These batteries are used on all computer motherboards and definitely worth something. Even if you won't be able to sell them for much, it is always good to have them during the emergency.

When you know it, what are you waiting for? Reuse your old laptops with this much ease.
