Yup, that's it. I've posted the last few days because there was a problem with my grandfather's computer and I can't seem to figure out what is wrong with it at all. Nothing I've done has worked.

What is the cheapest computer I can possibly get? He already has a monitor, k+m. Just needs the computer. As long as it can handle the internet, it is fine.

I saw one for $300. He's an old man, so money spending isn't something he likes to do.

Can you reuse his OS/HDD? If so you could build one really cheap

Haswell Celeron: $40-50
H81 mobo: $40-50
CX430:$20-30
Cheap case: $20
2 gigs of ram: $20

If you need an OS/HDD then you may as well just buy the cheapest one at best buy as you won't be saving much money.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

Why not look at local classifieds. I sell computers that are only feasible as internet computers for 40-80 bucks a pop.
