PlayStation 1 PC

post #1 of 159
Thread Starter 
I had an idea a few months ago to put a PC inside a PlayStation 1 (The original one). i figured that you could do a little bit more than just put some components in it and turn it on.

My ideas are:

-Make the On/Off switch fully functioning
-Make the Reset switch work
-Have a fully working DVD/RW drive where the original CD-R drive was
-Use original game controllers when gaming.

I thought about going down the line of Mini ITX, but i thought the advantages of using it were were not good as using other forms.

So what im going to use is the Motherboard from a ACER Aspire ZG5, it is a 8.9" netbook, having an Atom N270 in it. Admittedly, it inst going to be an SR-2 with capabilities of restarting planets, but it will be sufficient for the HTPC that i plan.

Using the ZG5 Motherboard does have its advantages, for instance, the power supply is external so that saves space, it can be run on its battery which can last up to 9 hours! and the motherboard itself isn't a big unit, so it will happily fit inside this blast from the past.



Anyway, on with the Mod.
I had originally planned for one of my friends to give me his one, but that had 'vanished' into thin air.

So i jumped onto eBay and bought one, and it came this morning!

I jumped into disassembling it, and here is the pictures..


The original PlayStation 1, haven't you all missed it?

I subscribed too, goodluck with this project!
Please make logs of what you did with pictures to proove it because I have a similar idea.
+rep for the idea!

PS: Would be cool to make the controller and memory card ports USB or Mini memory card slots or even a built in wireless receiver for keyboard and mouse, maybe also a audio port for headset.

This is the outside of the case, that was a bit dirty as well, - Note, i forgot to put the controller block back in..
IMG_1572.jpg

The underneath of the top part of the case, this wasn't really dirty, but i didn't take a picture of it last time!
IMG_1575.jpg

This is the other side of top half, with the CD lid open, nice and clean! biggrin.gif

Subbed too. It's going to be pretty difficult finding stuff to fit within the size constraints. :s
