Dead Dell Inspiron 1300 :(

I would surly hate to see its life cut short out of neglect.

Not that I'm attached to it. After all it had two previous owners when the screen got smashed. I got it for free, removed the screen, attached it to a monitor and used it as an XP desktop for a couple of years until the battery died, then after I wiped it and installed Ubuntu and it served as a portable backup TV connected system I carried around when moving. After that I put Puppy Linux on it with a monitor and UPS for a couple of years. Then suddenly out of the blue it started shutting off randomly.

I think this is close:

There must be something I can do with this thing. I just don't know if its project worthy yet. Its at least worth a look inside.
