Welp many people have been asking me about these and yes i'm Making them for people $40+shipping not bad at all for the price of the parts UGH
but its a max235 serial port chip with a 10pin mini connector like the IDE onebut only 10pin then on the other side of the chip are wires leading to a serial port adapter. JUST cut a hole in the case or put it where every and and plug it in. and you'v got a working serial port with ALL WORKING line's but no 12v supply. MOST all things should work. I'v yet to find any thing that doesnt work off the serial port.
Berinc@acadia.net drop me a line
TL082 dual op-amp audio hack's also, $30+shipping just solder 4 wires hot glue them and drill a hole for the audio jack then screw it in TIGHTLY. 1,2,3..6 done perfict cd quality to any set of powerd speakres or sterio. but its not great for head phones unless there VERY LOW power.
I'v been building these for people. though the audio one's take a lot more time to build
Some time i'm goignt o put up a web page with lots of pic's and info on my mod's
like serial, cpu, audio, cdrom just to name a few.
Oh yes many people have been addressing the VIDEO driver problem with win98 SE and the back light not shutting off. :) i'v got a simple problem fixer for you!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok this is realy tricky, go to the microsoft update util in windos by hitting the start button then windows updates. NOW once you'v gotten to the page you need to click on the PRODUCT UPDATES link which will bring you to some updates. you need only 2 updates, one is already checked for you the critical updates. Seccond one is now at the VERY BOTTEM of the page OH LOOK its your video card :) this cyberblade driver supports BOTH the shutting off of the backlight AND setting your system ram usage for your video card all in one and every thing works just nice :) I'd also suggest having dx8 installed but thats upto you. THOUGH i never install directx unless its the first time after FRESHLY installing winblows.
I do strongly reccomend using this vid driver. :) happy hunting
ANY ONE GET A DEER yet?? my bud just tagged one!! 10 pointer
