Ok I got a Dell cpi-a 300xt for some work i did on a friends pc Here it is in all its crappy glory! lol Specs ATM. 300 mhz pII 128 meg pc100 ram 3.2 gig hdd. Any way i have ordered an mmc-2 pIII 500 mhz proc. 2 128 sticks of pc100 low profile ram And am hunting a hdd,i have a 10 gig maybe(depends if HAL will ever get off his arse..lol) Ill probibly end up just buying a 40-60 gig hdd. Ive done ALOT of research on the lappy and this is the max for the hardware. Im starting this project as a filler while im working on that stupid window for "uv dark energy" Yes Im still phucking with that. So first thing was to take her all apart. Going to start prep work now for painting.....But I wanted to do somthing a little diffrent. CD rom....check,took the top off,that was a pain(litle bitty ass screws) Here is the top in all its crappy glory!(pic from google images) I lost my cut out wheel shaft so i did this with a 1/16th drill bit, a grinding stone,and a emery board...lol lol Im not sure on this yet.Im eather going with plexi...Or plexi and this. Its just held there by tape at the moment till I can do a little shaping and get it to fit flush with the surface. After i figure out my paint color's ill think about what color leds ill use to light this bad boy up. So thats it so far,ill be taping and priming this weekend But I can't get to far with it till its upgrades come in,i have to flash the bios for the laptop to recognize the new proc.i had to order a floppy drive for it so i can do that.should be in this weekend. I want to make sure it works before I go any further. I also ordered a new keyboard for it as this one has a busted backspace,spacebar and B. I hope I will have a better cam this weekend.And Ill shoot some pics of the stuff I did, and the stuff that comes in for it. wooohoo!
