I'm restoring and upgrading a couple of thinkpad 7XX series laptops
I've replaced the MWAVE audio with the ESS 1688 from an 760EL.
Ordered a replacement LCD as the one it has is starting to rot.
Replaced the 810MB HDD with a 4GB CF card
Ordered replacement LCD
Replaced 1.4GB HDD with 4GB CF card
Thinkpad Dock-I 3545
I partially disassembled the dock due to the lock being engaged and no key.
I managed to remove the bottom panel with some force and disabled the lock.
I'm trying to decide what to install in the ISA slot.
I'm open to suggestions as installing a video or sound card makes little sense.
I'm leaning towards either an IDE controller and a DOM or a floppy controller with a Gotek or both with a ide and floppy card if thats possible
total investment $305
755c & Dock-I $80
LCD for 760 $45
LCD for 755 $60
ESS 1688 audio board $70
