QUALITY & IC CERTIFIED

Computer Refurbishing

InterConnection (IC) is a leading provider of quality refurbished computers to nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and to schools and non-governmental organizations around the world. We have developed a computer refurbishing process that ensures all computers pass a series of refurbishment stages and meet the highest quality control standards. All computers that meet our standards are deemed “IC Certified”, which is our symbol for quality and reliability.

Every IC Certified computer goes through the following process:

CLEANING

  • The computer hard drive is erased using high-level data erase software
  • The computer is examined for any major cosmetic or internal damage
  • Dust is blown out using high pressure air from the power supply, processor, fans and throughout the case
  • All stickers are removed and case is cleaned
  • Motherboard is inspected for leaking or domed capacitors

REFURBISHED AND TESTED TO R2 STANDARDS

  • Missing parts replaced such as hard drive, memory and cards
  • BIOS (Basic Input/Output System) set to default and boot order set to CD Rom first
  • Laptops tested for key functions: LCD Screen, hard Drive, keyboard, battery, CMOS Battery, Ethernet, power and drivers to all external ports and drives
  • Desktops tested for key functions: Hard drive, CMOS Battery, Ethernet, primary video port, power and drivers to all external ports and drives
  • Slot covers replaced if needed  

QUALITY CONTROL

  • Software is used to test components CPU, RAM, optical drive and hard drive
  • All computers are logged into our database and specs are printed and attached to all PCs and laptops

COSMETIC GRADE

Cosmetic Grade A: Grade A products will have overall excellent to very good cosmetic condition. Some Grade A units will be cosmetically pristine while others may have light scratches or other minor blemishes. Some Laptops may exhibit some shiny areas around the keyboard (space bar, touchpad and/or touchpad buttons), but the keyboard keys will be in excellent condition. Cosmetic blemishes will have no impact to the system’s overall functionality or performance.

Cosmetic Grade B: These units will have some cosmetic blemishes that include scratches and/or other surface imperfections. Some Laptops may exhibit shiny keys on the keyboard and/or shiny surfaces around the keyboard. All key characters will be legible. Grade B products are functionally equivalent to Grade A, and will include the same warranty and customer support as Grade A products. Pricing on grade B products will typically be lower than grade A products.
