I have 4 HP minis at the moment:
2116C that was running the last time I checked
2 2114B that are in various states of “not working”. Interestingly the most promising one (e.g. the one that hasn’t had various parts clipped or otherwise buggered) is where I can’t get it to power up at all (not even the fan). So I have to go and dig into the power supply a bit more…it could also be that the power cord is wired up incorrectly since it uses an old style hubble twist-lock that I may not have wired up quite right)
HP-1000 M Series
