PC Refurbishment Program

When available, Field Support replaces older legacy computers with refurbished University Surplus PCs for $60 each to requesting campus departments. These requests are filled as surplus PCs become available for refurbishing, so there is no guarantee of immediate replacement.

Details

  • Refurbished PCs are the exclusive property of the University of Nevada, Reno, subject to proper salvage and surplus procedures set forth by the University's Purchasing Department and state law.
  • There is a $60 labor charge for the PC. This fee includes:
    • Copying the file contents of the old hard disk onto the refurbished PC.
    • Removing applications from the old PC to be transferred to the refurbished one when possible.
    • Reloading any business applications, where the user has proof of licensing and media.
    • Re-establishing email.
    • Configuring printer drivers and peripheral equipment for standard existing devices.
  • There is a $30 charge for reloading the operating system and necessary software on an existing, functional, in-use office computer.
  • When available, a used flat panel monitor may be included for an additional $15.
To request a refurbished PC, contact IT Support or email a request to pcrefurb@unr.edu.
