 Post subject: What do I need for DVD
PostPosted: Mon Aug 04, 2003 8:00 pm 
I have a Lombard 333 runing OS 9. What do I need in order to watch DVDs on it. I don't think it will be as easy as just purchesing a DVD module because acording to Apple System Profiler, there is no DVD decoder installed. Thanks.

You need to either replace your logic board with a logic board from a 400mhz machine as it will have the DVD decoder, or you can purchase a DVD PCMCIA decoder card. That is in addition to a DVD drive of course.

On a scale of 1 to 5 how hard is it to replace the logic board. If I had the help of your take apart guide?

Replacing the logic board is probably the most difficult repair on the Lombard, but then again the lombard is an easy take apart. If you've never worked on a laptop before then it would be a 4. If you have, a 2.

Thanks, you have been a lot of help. I am going to buy the take apart guide and try it. I have never worked on laptops before, or computers for that matter, but I am a electrition and am pretty good with my hands, so we will see what happens. If I break it it is my own stupid fault.

PS I am confident in my self, I don't think there will be a problem.
