Welp many people have been asking me about these and yes i'm Making them for people $40+shipping on the serial port, not bad at all for the price of the parts UGH
and $30+3 for the audio out mod, premade.
The audio out is very simple, solder 4 wires and drill a hole in the case then screw the jack down tight into place.
The serial port hehe even easyer, brake out the old dremal cut a shape of the serial port and 2 holes for the screw's then just plug it onto the mother board and put the port into the hole and screw it inplace tight. any question's???
now to be a little more indepth....
A max235 serial port chip with a 10pin mini connector like the IDE one is pluged into the io mother board. On the other side of the max235 chip are wires leading to a serial port adapter. JUST cut a hole in the case or put it where ever you feel is best and 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.

TL082 dual op-amp audio hack's for the yamaha sound chip, $30+shipping just solder 4 wires hot glue them and drill a hole for the audio jack then screw the audio jack in TIGHTLY. 1,2,3..6 done perfict cd quality to any set of powerd speakres or sterio. but its not great for headphones, it works fine on them but if you put the vol much over half way you find that the sound on any set of headphones will start to decay, though to me half way vol using this mod is blasting my ears. Thats what other people have told me in the past???? oh well. I'v never had a complaint other wise, heh i gues if ya can't hear the music from 5 feet away comming from a set of head phones its not loud enuff, like that of any old walkman.
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.
This is a REPOST from an other post so if you use the driver above MAKE SHURE you are installing it as a vergin (OR read the post's), meaning FRESHLY HAVE installed windows DONT LOAD ANY VIDEO drivers yet you dont need to. when you go to the microsoft web page they will find your chipset. but i suggest you look at this page
one of my last post's discribes the BEST way to use this driver and i'v had many people say they'v had NO problems, if you do have problems i'd bet almost any thing you fall under one of the problem sources in my post. :)
I do strongly reccomend using this vid driver. :) happy hunting
ANY ONE GET A DEER yet?? my bud just tagged one!! 10 pointer
