I have computer parts everywhere around my house. I'm used to putting random pieces together and throwing an operating system on it. It hadn't ever occured to me to mod anything though. Hardware or otherwise.
My current project/obsession is unlocking the AMD Athlon II x2 220 that resides in this emachine. It has an Acer motherboard (DA061L-3D) The bios is an AMI version P01-B3 with a core of 8.00.15 made on 08/01/2011.
I'm confident that I've done enough reading to learn that the CPU is of those that can be unlocked to a Phenom II x4 920. So far my main restriction is the bios. Even the advanced tab has limitations and I'm currently investigating it with AMIBCP 3.42, I believe. I'm starting to think the motherboard may be my downfall.
I'm about to start combing your forum for clues.
Anywayz, this is me introducing myself! XD
