There is a free E-Trash drop off tomorrow and rather than pay the going charge around here of $25 per item I plan to save a couple hundred getting rid of some TVs, VCRs, monitors and this old PC. It is no longer operational so I cant wipe the hard drive so I intend to remove it and physically destroy it by drilling it and smashing it into oblivion! BUT...I don't know where it is. I see not to touch or mess with the power box in the back corner, but what am I looking for? TIA

  • It is at the end of one of those ribbon wires. I think the most rearward one. Hard to say for sure though. If you start there and pull it out I can identify it for sure. It should look something like this:

    amazing the damage a ball peen hammer and an anvil can inflict on a little ol' hard drive! And then just to be further safe my drill press even got in on the demolition. That hard drive looks like Congress at the end of the day - sorry, beaten up and WORTHLESS!!!

    hmmmmn, I would have done that but too late now - already in the recycler's hands. Ended up with 9 pieces of E-trash...
