make a plug with a normal wire then switch it on.. dont touch the live wires and press it somewhere on your board. this is always a good way to fry everything.

hehe 240v runnin thru processor!

Why don`t you give it to some poor person ? They would probably love to have it,and you would be helping someone,at the same time you get it out of your way.

take a pin of the cpu, it may still boot, it may be interesting
Keep removing pins until it screws so badly it never works again

heres one way, if u got a usb port on that computer, put in a memory stick, or flash key in other words, shut down with the key inside, and then take out the key, it should screw up your computer, my friend did it by accident and told me about it. lol hope that helps

I unsocketed my old 486 and started whittling it away with a metal file.
