The Dell Inspirion 537s was stuck in power saver mode. I reset the battery, cleaned some of the hardware inside. It powered on and was working. It was in Korean and password protected so I Installed Manjaro Linux and it is running beautifully. The fan was super loud when running windows. After installing Linux it is so quiet. Researching a wireless adapter that is Linux compatible. Ultimate goal is to upgrade and set it up with maybe or to run a home server.

Found 3 old Dell PCs on the side of the road today ( A Dell Dimension 3000 and a 2400 and a Dell Inspiron 537s) along with a monitor, keyboard and mouse. Having fun trying to restore them. The 3000 ran into a ton of errors when trying to install lubuntu and the inspiron powers on but needs a mouse and a keyboard. The 2400 is running nicely. Trying to install on it via bootable usb

Just arrived at the office. Powering up my laptop, I've got work to do 😊

Donnie aka donJuan enjoying his new home. Safe, sound, and well fed. Found him outside, 3 months old, he was starved. He has since put on healthy weight and I no longer am feeling his bones. Super smart, playful, and affectionate. My boyyyπŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ±πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™
