im in the middle of repairing a laptop i was given in a box of electronic parts,i have ironed out most of the problems but was wondering why the laptop crashes when i use the parallel port.
it also has no audio(i know what that is,and its not software) and the bios battery needs replacing.
i have already reset the bios to unlock the laptop bootup so i could install windows.i also think i need to replace the thermal grease but that would requir i totally dismantal the laptop.

the laptop is a old fujitsu siemens amilo pro v2000,it used to have linux on it...from what i have seen after getting it to boot.

there was also a risc pc600...but thats shot beyond repair unfortunately,i was more interested in the huge boxes of electronic parts and components...but they offered me the laptop so here i am.

any help with this most appreciated:)
