  1. One JACKED MoBo

    After I cleaned it off it was obvious to see that half of the contacts on the components were completely gone due to the corrosion. Atleast its already apart, maybe I can atleast make a few $ on ebay selling the parts.
  2. One JACKED MoBo

    Yeah thats what I think, tomorrow I have a long day at work so I might emplore the help of some electrical guys and some nylon brushes and electrical contact cleaner and see if I can get it cleaned up and working. Not crossing my fingers though...
  3. One JACKED MoBo

    So I acquired a laptop from my in-laws that had a bad power chord (tested it with a meter). So ordered a new chord off ebay and no dice. Damn! So opened up the cases and wasnt getting good power to any devices and only a few pins on the mobo. finally pulled mobo ALL the way out and looked at top side and think I found the problem.... Take a look! Guess this ones going to be scrap. compaq presario c500
  4. Kernel Panic while opening sys prefs

    That did the trick! Thanks, I realized that the problem was occurring when I was opening DMG's the first time was just a coincidence I was opening sysprefs at the same time. Thanks!

  6. About this MAC CPU reading wrong

    Well, after many tries, (5-6 distros and 3 boxes) I finally got my first box up and running! its running iPC 10.5.6 The machine is an emachine t3414 with an intel celron D 3.06 GHz processor. I would ASSUME that "about this mac" would read "3.06 ghz intel core solo" or similar.... HOWEVER it reads "1.5 ghz intel core solo" Any ideas? PS: Will post info to wiki soon after I work out a few bugs to help anyone else with this machine.
