I bought this laptop from a recycler for <$40 on November 25th of 2017. It booted to the BIOS when I tested it, so I bought it.

Unfortunately, I discovered only after buying it that it has the infamous "dead wireless" problem that plagues the dv2000/6000/9000 series laptops. Maybe I can fix it with my new X-Tronic #5040 soldering/hot air/preheater station!

The board's on the preheater!

This didn't work. I later realized that I reflowed the wrong chip. Time to do the correct one!
