Re: Is there a 5 pin relay with 2 #87s that come on at the same time?

Funny story.. In a way.

When the computer crashed, I took it in to a computer shop/guy.

He confirmed what was wrong and I picked up my computer, as I told him I would..

Not knowing anything about them - I took a picture of the inside before taking it in.

When I got it home I thought something inside did not look right.
So I referred to my picture.

YEP - He took some long thing out and plan to keep it and use it in another computer.

SAD PART - He did not ask. He just took it.

I'll never go back! NO trust there any more.

Did your computer work when you picked it up or did he pronounce it DOA? Maybe your long thing was fried and he replaced it with a different looking part.

I was told the motherboard was fired...

But he took some kind of board, chip or part to keep and use himself; because that computer was not going to be used again.

Either way - It was NOT his to take! It was not his choice and more so without my promission. Grin

Don't recall and it does not really matter.

I learned in Kindergarten - IF it's not yours - don't mess with it. Grin
In other words; Don't take something that is NOT yours.

Found this while doing my research and making my order list.

I don't have a need for it as of yet.
But I thought I share it in case someone might have a use for it.

Did you ask him about it? Maybe he just forgot to put it back. One step to troubleshooting is take out all non-essential parts. If you have a lot of PCs around it can be easy to forget especially when one is leaving in a non-working state.

Sounds like he swiped one or more of your memory chips.

Sounds like some auto repair guys I have seen.

Sometimes it's tough to be a knowledgeable consumer


You know, like cars, there are often important parts of a computer that can be recycled in a comparable machine.

Among the most notable are the hard drives.

Just a thought...

Thanks guys.
But I don't really care about my computer issue from over 2 years ago.
That is in the past and I can not change what has happened.
He told me he did not think I needed it or that I was going to use it since my computer was shot.
Not to be rude!
I'm pushing 60 and trying to make up for the last few years of lost time..
So I only care about what I'm doing each given day and the current project.

Craig does nice work. Thank you Craig thumbs up






This morning I've been looking to find the best price on normally open dual 87 post/pin relays that I need and they have to be without a mounting tab.
