Introduction: "Hacked" Laptop Mod
I have an old Gateway Solo laptop running Windows 98. Pretty boring. So I decided to spice it up a little. I followed these steps to make it look like some one 'hacked' the back of my laptop! It also glows like the Apple logo (on Mac laptops), from the LCD screen backlight!
1.Dissembled the LCD half of the laptop
2.Messily drilled holes in the area where the Gateway logo used to be (pic 2 and 3)
3.Taped layers of cut up a keyboard's key map onto the inside of the hole
4.Reassembled the laptop
5.Roughed up the edges of the hole with diagonal pliers
6.Took pictures and uploaded them to Instructables!
