Okay... in an effort to end the nagging from my girlfriend to "clean the desk off" i hurried up and assembled my iopener...
it worked beautifully before the reassembly...
now... the top 1/2 of the lcd has vertical lines through everything... thinking there was pressure on a connector or something... i removed the board / lcd from the case as i had it running before, and it still has the lines through the top 1/2 of the screen.
THEN... i accidently touched some 3 solder point jobber near the lcd invertor... got the bajesus shocked outta my pinky which cooked 3 small dots on my skin like a hot dog (kinda cool)
anywho... anyone know what the issue may be with my lcd? is it the MoBo... or the LCD itself?
