Not likely. They may not have anyone that's up to speed on that old of a system. I'd run a craigslist ad, and see if you can find a tech folk person, that likes to do this sort of thing(like the Victrola version for computers, eh?)

Recycling and refurbishing of desktop computers and other things


I find to begin with, when a computer is found by the side of the road, in a dumpster or even from an office building or somebodies home they are old and are in need of a clean up.
When bringging something like that home I first put it up on shelving off the floor and have a think about it. At this point I will jot down in my database that comes with Fedora linux, Time, Date, Place, any Serial Numbers, condition of the article and then I will consider what needs to be done.
This first tip is getting a plastic bucket, 4 litres of methalated spirits, a clean pump spray or squirt bottle, static strap and some coffee filters.
Wearing a static strap I find is optional when dealing with recycled computers and parts, since some have even been rained on. If you don't have one I'll run through later on how to make yourself one or they are priced anywhere from $2 to $10 at retail electronic stores.
Take the methalated spirits put it in your squirtbottle then proceed to gently spray clean the computer part over the plastic bucket or basin getting out any remaining dust or dirt using a cotton tip.
Then air dry, out on a towel and filter your used metho into secondary container or bottle through a coffee filter to save for later. Leave you with different grades of metho for later use depending on the job.

Where can I get a replacement IDE Ribon cable


I'm surprised you don't have a spare IDE cable in one of the old computers that you have. Anyway, you can find an ide cable at any computer store, and they should cost less than $10. You can also find them on eBay very cheap.

Dc jack repair


on a laptop it must have the exact power volatge and if it has a center pin then you must get it from the manufacture but here is an idea if you can find a place that takes in old computers and laptops maybe you can ask them for a replacement it may take a little time to get it if they don't have one on hand but the way all these new laptops and computers coming out people are getting rid of there old ones..... and most of these places also referbish computers for schools but you need the location for the recycling drop offs,,,
