Okay, then you will need to buy the Sony Picturebook AC adapter which should cost around $20 USD in the market to see if your Picturebook cab turn on without any issue.

Just want to give you the head up impression of this Umpc when you manage to get it working. With a very limited in ram and CPU, you can only do very light word doc. PC gaming is possible but limited. You can't go to the Internet with this laptop. You will need to get a PCMCIA Internet adapter with the software to get it working. If your is 2000 or CE, you won't able to use Internet USB adapter as I did try on mine. Maybe it might work if you updated the OS to XP.

Note: because it's harder to find the proper Software on this laptop, if you have to update the OS to XP, quite a bit of the software which make use for this laptop won't work. The laptop will still work, just those special software won't.

Other than that, hope you can get the Picturebook working and do post it here when you get it up and running.

True. Just my Picturebook don't like certain PCMCIA WiFi cards when I am trying to get one up and running for it. This is the same with the software for the PCMCIA WiFi cards. I guess it's something I need to see if they is a way I can fix this issue on mine. Don't know if it's the Window ME which causing this or the Sony software which making it more hard than it have to be.

Either way, I manage to find a Sony PCMCIA WiFi cards. Just need to find the software which is comparable with Win ME OS and I should able to get it up and running to the internet. I already test it with my Sony Vaio PCG-GT3/K and it work fine (but that is on Win XP).

The thing with the Amiga ones is, they are common and 16-bit, just normal PCMCIA WiFi cards, but searching 16-bit PCMCIA Wifi on something like eBay will also do the trick also.

I guess you don't get the purpose of those turbo switches. They're 50% marketing.

All they do was switch from like half the speed to 100% speed when in "turbo" mode.

They were there because lots of older programs and games were programmed lazily and ran WAY TOO FAST on 386 and 486 machines.
So now you had the possibility to just detune your pc to a lower speed with a button.

Actually they weren't that much marketing but real useful.
Usually when you pressed the turbo button it would go down to 5MHZ or 8MHZ, because older programs and games where programmed with the 8086/8088 in mind, running to fast on anything faster.

Turbo would imply that somehow it makes the computer run faster while in reality while in turbomode it just runs at the normal speed.

it's really incredible how nice it is in context

even basic shit like hostname changes and network configuration in Solaris are pretty much terminal or bust, CDE is an unstable piece of poorly documented shit that routinely fucks itself in the ass every time you so much as look at it funny (I never even log out my Solaris 10 VM because it always breaks in some way without fail, whether dropping panel submenus in strange, unrecoverable ways or crashing GWM with no survivors) and little to no bundled applications beyond extremely basic facilities like a text editor and a calculator

even my ancient IRIX 5.3 systems have none of these problems despite running an OS two decades older, you can almost do useful work with these things out of the box, the audio facilities are especially impressive to me, considered getting myself an O2 just for recording and editing

Was trying to find something to show how fucking thin it is (literally thinner than an MBA despite being nearly 15 years older) and that was all I had. It hasn't been too far up my ass, I just use it for labeling CD-Rs.

I only just noticed that tiny hinge split starting in this picture after taking it a year ago and I'm really triggered right now.

My model is the PCG-4RIT with 3MP camera and Wi-Fi 802.11b built in. Should've came with Windows XP originally.

I just wanted a picture of the DC-in port because mine just looks like there's 2 bare pins with no middle strain relief.

Here's a pic btw.

Sorry for not posting my Picturebook pics you need. Here is mine. As you can see, it does have the two pin on the DC IN but it have some sort of a plastic that goes around it. I don't know if the later model of the Picturebook have a slight different DC IN connector or your is damaged somehow. The only way to find out is to buy the AC adapter and then test it out.

If you're wondering, mine is PCG-C1VN which is the older model than your and with Win ME.

That would be a easy connector to fabricate yourself! Not bad at all.
