EEVblog #1342 - Symmetrical Dumpster PC Stacking

Symmetrical Dumpster PC Stacking, just like the Norwest mass turbulence of 1984.
Dave's been dumpster diving again for small form factor PC's.

TELEFUNKEN as such is not around anymore. It is just "TELEFUNKEN Licenses GmbH", a little company that puts badges on chinese products.
The only bit that still exists under the name TRANSRADIO is the former Telefunken Low Frequency RF transmitter manufacturing division.

When the TELEFUNKEN ship was in the process of sinking in the late 80s and 90s I used to work there as an apprentice for radio electronics and worked there afterwards before studying electronics engineering.
Where is that smoke coming from?

Hi All

Long time EEVblog viewer since 2014, first time post.

I have had a business in computer industry, since 1987 (importing Apple II peripherals from the USA), then moving to the IBM compatible PC area in the early 1990's.
I currently supply, repair and upgrade Windows based desktop PC's, laptops, netbooks, etc. I also have a vintage (?) computer collection starting from 1980.

The reason for my post is, back the old days, I used a multi-sync, multi-input 14" CRT monitor for my test bench. About 6 years ago I updated to a Dell 2408WFP 24" LCD monitor.
The problem with this monitor (apparently well known) is it will go into sleep mode when receiving no signal (which is annoying when you are constantly powering a computer on or off, or restarting it).

The sleep mode CANNOT be disabled !.

On seeing Dave using the 24" Telefunken I thought maybe there would be a newer replacement for my sleepy Dell.

Can anyone help ?  :o

P.S. To Dave, keep up the repair and teardown videos please, as a trained electronics technician, you have my undivided attention.    ^-^

They are OEM keys, so they still won't be "legal".

It is legal (as far as I know) for the holder of a Windows COA (Certificate of Authenticity) label / sticker to legally install that operating system on one PC.
How I came across this was I saw empty desktop cases with a Windows COA labels on them being sold at auctions and trade sales for up to $100 !
I have "reclaimed" quite a few COA labels for Windows 95, 98, Millennium, XP, Vista & 7 from old cases and laptops.
