I felt like I needed a shower after visiting that site.

You click on that link? No wonder people need anti-malware, antivirus programs. I read RBS' post, had a laugh and decided not to contribute to the click bait or take a chance on catching something unholy.

RBS....

You're simply too impatient, or perhaps you've not upgraded to the NEW IMPROVED Version .00000-1

I downloaded and ran what is an apparently P.O.S. software program on my T61 with a loose hinge, and not only did it fix my loose hinge....

1. It turned my planar into a P50 motherboard with dual Xenon processors and 128 Gb of DDR4 RAM...

2. Changed my screen from a lousy XGA TN panel into the beautiful BOE-HYDIS LED-backlit 1600 x 1200 res viewing display...

3. Re-imaged the BIOS splash screen to delete the Lenovo badge and re-instated the original IBM logo...

4. Added a real HDMI video-out port...

5. Improved the fan cooling capabilities to where I can run the Furmark burn-in program on the new dual-xenon processor and never have the temps get above 40C...

6. Resuscitated my 9-cell battery from barely ten minutes of battery life back to a better-than-new condition, and giving me almost 24 hours of CPU-intensive life... AND...

7. Re-installed all my worn-out keycaps with brand new ones...

In fact, this program is SO useful that I'm going to install it on the lawn tractor this spring.... I expect I'll be able to plow a hundred acres with little effort. The 16 HP engine should be able to easily pull (two) six-furrow, sixteen inch bottom gang plows at twenty miles per hour.... should have the whole farm plowed in under two hours!

Patience My Good Man...Patience!!

Regards.

Dave

I doubt he would have posted the link had it been dangerous. Besides the fact that I have enough virus, ransomware, and malware protection on this system for four computers.

I ran the software and now my T42p

Magically is back together with all parts
A brand new housing
A not fried motherboard
IPS QXGA Display
My Radeon 7500 can magically render 8K videos in seconds

Thanks RBS!
Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

Looking For: 386 laptop, IBM or not.
