'box' upgrade

I've been contemplating trying the upgrade of 'box' to a celeron 1.1GHz again. Though it occurs to me that the mobo might not be the right rev to support this kind of upgrade (voltage?), and company that sold adapters seems to have gone away.

But, then the machine suddenly stopped working. >:XX

I decide to try swapping the CPU, to no avail.

I fiddled around with the guts for a while, when suddenly it POSTs....so I carefully close it up and let it go.

Just now there was a loud noise and poof, 'box' is dead again. >:XX

Guess it is time to see about getting another machine to replace it. Though should I buy another cheap box off of eBay or not? It doesn't really need to be much, but it also serves a very critical function to my home network.....namely its DHCP and routing functions.

I think at this point, another eBay search is what I'm going to do.... :**:

But, first to investigate the loud noise and getting 'box' (and myself) back on line.....

In the post mortem....what is leading to the death of this system is likely the violation of my cardinal rule. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!" )-o

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
