Ok, so this lady wants to know if I can upgrade her computer, so she brings over this dinosaur. It's an IBM 6758 90U, Pentium 166, 6GB HDD...

I got stuck basically before I ever got started because I can't figure out how to open the case. Anyone have info for me?

That technology...dates back to 1996 (my first system had a 6GB hard drive and P166)...there really is no "upgrading" such old equipment, IMO.

It's been "new system" time for some time.

Systems today are much cheaper than whatever was paid for that one...and much better technology-wise.

I would suggest a new system...get an amount she is willing to spend...and then shop. I would suggest new system rather than refurb...due to warranty/maintenance/troubleshooting considerations.
