OK... I am not sure what forum to put this into..... but how much damage would my computer suffer if I were to store it in a self-storage place here in NJ... for about 3 months.

I notice the cost of climate-controlled storage is much more expensive and I was curious as to using regular storage. I certainly would rap up the PC well........ do you think I could get away with doing that? Or, will I need climate-controlled?

Thanks in advance :)

Does the weather in NJ get below freezing?

If so, just wrap the computer in a blanket and give it something warm to drink.

Barring the blanket and drink suggestion. No harm should come to a computer stored in the cold so long as it doesnt get too cold.

Sometimes, with old computers, the cmos could be reset by freezing the motherboard, but, i wouldnt worry about that.

Other than the cold killing the CMOS battery, I wouldn't see that it cold be that big of a problem. As stated already, wrap it up in plastic & a good heavy blanket.

Make sure when you take it out that it "completely" warms to room temperature before firing it up. If it's too cold you could very well create a bit of condensation. :(
