I had a cable that fit and was able to power if up. Unfortunately, it's running at a 1.0 performance score. It's also running a bootleg copy of Windows 7, while the stickers say it's a Windows XP laptop. It doesn't really have any bells or whistles (in fact it took me a few days to figure out how to get any sound out of it--drivers needed replacing, I guess).
I'm hoping someone can walk me through reverting this from the bootleg Windows 7 to an XP install. I don't think this computer could handle anything beyond XP, although I am typing this in windows 7, so who knows?
I'll be very happy with any help you can give me. I just want it to be functional so I can give it to my brother who's only familiar with XP, and I can be rid of it (I know that's not realistic, but I can hope...)
