Wanted – Cheap/free HDMI monitor for teaching with Raspberry Pis

Didn’t see anything against the rules for threads like this. Mods, please accept my apologies in advance and remove this thread if I’m breaking any rules.

I’m teaching some children some computer science basics in my neighbourhood. We have some Raspberry Pi Zeros (edited on 12/07./2018 to reflect we have Pi Zeros, not Pis!), but no dedicated display units. I’ve been using my TV for this, but the number of children has increased, so we need additional displays. The only requirement, is they be able to accept an HDMI input, and work.

I’m looking for something as cheap as possible. I can make a small donation to charity or pay a small cost for anyone supplying a monitor.

I can collect from Berkshire or Bristol by arrangement.

Location: Bracknell, Berkshire

For Sale – HP microserver N36L 4GB blu-ray drive ATI 6450 802.11n wifi

Hi Paul,

I’d accept your offer though please read the below.

I don’t think it is particularly noisy for a 6 year old 40mm fan (I’m surrounded by them at work, most much noisier), it spins, but it isn’t quiet, and it is definitely a fair bit louder than when it was new. That is why I posted the video.

Prior to listing it (while it still had a couple of §drives in) I left it running Windows 7 for a couple of weeks, which it did fine, without any unexpected errors or failures to boot etc.

Having spent a couple of minutes googling; the only thing non-standard about the chassis fan is that HP have swapped the pin order vs the “standard” for 12V PC PWM controlled fans, and used a standard molex KK type 4 pin header housing instead of the special one you’re supposed to use for 4pin PWM fans. If you want to swap the chassis fan it is only a few minutes work to extract the pins from the connector, swap them over and cut off the ramp which gets in the way:
N54L Microserver – Rear Fan Replacement Guide

The PSU one would be a little more tricky to swap, but only involve a couple of minutes soldering if you’re happy working on that kind of thing. The PSU isn’t actually that non-standard (I’m surrounded by similar units at work – we use a different model from the same manufacturer in one of our products) – it is just a 1U flex-ATX PSU. (more info here: http://chrisstark.co/2013/08/hp-microserver-n36-replacement-power-supply-psu/ ).

What I would say to you is that if doing the kind of things listed above aren’t the kinds of thing you like to get involved in, then I’d actually prefer not to sell it to you. While the fans and the unit are working fine, there is of course every chance they >may< fail in the not distant future (things that spin eventually stop, that's why I've removed the drives), and of course if the above kind of remedial works are out of your comfort zone then the unit is a paperweight, so wouldn't represent good value. That is just a fact of life of buying an old second hand computer.

But if you are comfortable with the risk, and can repair this sort of thing economically yourself if it does fail, then at £50 delivered it is a steal considering the RAM, bluray drive, graphics card and WLAN card (which together are worth more than the unit).
