    As for if you can put regular PC components in it....it seems like it, however, the Motherboard form factor would come into play here. If you are going to update this, I would also consider looking at a new power supply.

    I would imagine it can be fixed, but you probably need computer repair skills. Have you ever built your own PC? If not you might have to take it to a repair place, keeping in mind this thing was never very popular, so finding a reasonably priced repair might be difficult.

    Maybe, but that device had a custom version of Windows Vista, I believe. I’m not sure if a regular PC can work with the display. Have you looked inside? Is there a connection cable for the tabletop screen? Is it a regular HDMI, Display Port OR DVI cable? Or VGA? You might have issues with the touchable display with a modern PC also.

    I found a different site that shows a meh teardown of the unit: https://joepweijers.nl/technical-not...osoft-surface/

    In there looks like a VGA and a DVI, along with several ethernet cables (not sure why).

    A big factor in this is can the OP get a board and all the add on boards to connect everything?

    Nice!

    The most important question of all do you see a power cable for the screen or a/c port?

    Since there are display cables, you should be able use a off the shelf motherboard or a mini atx case (presuming there is enough space in the chassis) or failing that a intel NUC.

    But without being able to power up the screen, every other question is really academic lol.

    This webpage looks VERY promising! I have marked it as "best answer".

    IF when you get this thing up and running please let us know. Sounds like a GREAT project. :) Pictures and videos would be cool also.

    I'd need to see some kind of tear down pictures or a video. I'll try to remember to look when I get home tonight.

    Cool! Was it cheap? It probably is just like a desktop computer case... And they probably even stuck with the standard atx form factor no?

    Usually you need a motherboard, power supply, then cpu, ram, hdd/sdd... Graphics can be onboard/on cpu now.

    It's hard to tell from the pictures provided, but all the cables there probably designed to connect to the motherboard ports to the table ports.

    There should be a big plate the motherboard can mount into, and start finding where a power supply mounts to... Dunno hard for me to talk it through without seeing it

    From what I have read this thing was designed for commercial purposes. To be used in restaurants, or other stores, and it had a price pretty much dictating that usage only. It retailed for 10k!

    I would imagine the interior is designed to allow for computer components to be installed. The poster just above me, gave you the list of components you'll need.
