  1. Hi, I have a Sony Vaio PCG-TR3A laptop from 2004. It has 1GB of RAM, and a 1GHz Pentium M which doesn't support PAE (It actually does, but it's not set in the CPU flags, so for all purposes, it doesn't). Looking for a lightweight distro that will run on non POE 1core CPU that I could possibly still get some work done. Thanks
  2. XP Professional. I know I can get stock XP ISO, I just want all the drivers, software, wallpaper (I'm nostalgic) in one neat package. Yes, I'm aware XP isn't secure, yolo
  3. Lol no I'm not. I just want to factory reset it.
  4. Lorex has a great system, I personally use it and it's very reliable : https://www.lorextechnology.com/4k-ip-camera-system/4k-ultra-hd-ip-nvr-security-camera-system-with-6-ip-cameras/4KHDIP86-1-p if you need WiFi, I recommend NEST cameras. However, PoE cameras are what I would go with, in terms of reliability and bandwidth. Cheers
  5. Hi, does anyone here have the ThinkPad T42P laptop? If so, would anyone mind creating recovery media for it using the built in application? Much obliged.
  6. Well, I'm trying to do a demonstration in my school about how we can take our laptops and fix them with SSDs instead of throwing them out and not replacing them. Our laptops are from 2004 but I don't have access to use one as a demo now.
  7. I think 44 pin is regular CF, and 50 pin is for CF hard drives that need more power (probably +5V or something)
  8. Yeah, I appreciate the help, but ZIF doesn't work here, neither does SATA, and it depends on which interface of IDE. CF is inherently IDE.
  9. Yeah, going back to my original question, is using a CF card viable for an OS? the read/write cycles might take a toll... This whole thing is really a mess. Could you recommend me a 2004-2005 laptop that is decently powerful for it's time? Most of the laptops from then we're really easy to find SSDs for, since they are a standard size. Thanks
  10. I appreciate it. However, that drive is 2.5" and wouldn't fit in 1.8" mount in the laptop. Otherwise, I would buy any laptop that was made in the 2004-2005 range (need it for a specific demonstration). Any thoughts?
  11. Hi, I have a Sony PCG-TR3A laptop which uses a Toshiba MK4004GAH hard disk drive. I'm looking for an 1.8" SSD alternative, which should have a "CF 50PIN" connector. I haven't been able to find an SSD, per se. I know I can use a CF card with an adapter, but will that be bad because of the write cycles of an operating system? Thanks!

    CPU Cooler

    Hello all, looking for a socket 604 cpu cooler. The one I have currently is VERY loud as it is meant for a server, so I need a cpu cooler that is relatively quiet. Noise level is almost as important as cooling performance. Thank you!
  13. But is there any reason/advantage to upgrade to a new sound card? I’m aware of what onboard audio is.
