Glad I removed it. Now I can put some AC5 on it after removing that thermal 'lotion'.
If its not something like cement or something

I don't think you can make that into a better computer with $0. I would just get a new PC.

If he don't use it much, he could probably pick up a cheap video card that is ~better~ than the one he has now...

Mine is utter crap right now. :-/

I think we've established that a new computer would be a better idea.

But why throw out a perfectly working system when we can fry it with extra volts first?

Lol wth guys, we are all aware that the PC sucks and he needs a new one. Let's stop stating the obvious.

I have nothing to contribute really...i just found it funny that 75% of the posts in here say get a new a computer.

Although you could try that software overclocking... clockgen i think it's called, it wouldn't work on my laptop

Then take the processor and turn it into a keychain! I saw an FAQ somewhere around here about it...

I have a perfectly good 533MHz Celery on an un-overclockable OEM HP board for that purpose.

Hmm... when it fries, take his and give it to him!

Say, "I call it computer on a ring!"

Didn't know they made BIOS chips other than manufacturers
