ThinkCentre M57 9181 Upgrades
Just got this old computer up and running. Someone gave it to me for free because it wasn't booting up. Turns out one of the ram sticks went bad, so now it seems to work.
I wanted to see if anyone had experience working on something like this or something similar. This
appears to be the model I'm working with. I've attached some pictures.
It appears to use the Q35 chipset, which is suppose to be able to support Core2Quad 65nm and 45nm. So I ordered a Q9300 for 10 bucks off ebay and am awaiting it to see if I can upgrade.
If it works, next upgrades will have to be ram and a video card. Then maybe storage, but as it only has two sata ports I may have to get creative.
