    Senior Design Project

    I'm a senior in electrical engineering at my university. I'm in a group of four friends, three EE's and one computer engineer. We will spend one semester designing our project and the next building it. We are looking at a few projects, but I was wondering if anyone had any neat ideas. We...

    Dell Inspiron 9200

    I'm not a very big laptop guy, but with so many projects requiring matlab and pspice at school, I decided a laptop would be very helpful. I looked around for a week or two finding not only the best laptop for my needs, but also something easy on the eyes. I've never been a big Dell fan...

    LED with Switch help!

    Actually I made a mistake. The LED will be on when the switch is off and be off when the switch is on because there is no voltage drop when the switch is on. There is 12V before and 12V after the switch, so no voltage drop. Do what I said in my first reply and everything should work fine :)

    LED with Switch help!

    In your diagram, the LED will always be on. I'm not sure if that's what you're aiming for, but if you only want the LED to be on when the device is on, run the LED in parallel with the device. You will also need a current limiting resistor in series with your LED. For an LED to shine its...

    project CRT²PC

    Sounds like a great project, but is a terabyte of hard drive space necessary? I can't imagine what you'd store on that much space :o good luck with your mod, I'm very interested to see the final project though :)

    Advanced mod- Socket extension?

    Here is my two cents: There will be noise between the wires. There is noise in literally every wire in your computer. EE's working on motherboard circuits design the wires differently. Instead of "just resistance," it's modeled as an RLC circuit (inductances because the wires turn at...

    Trust NewEgg?

    I've purchased over $15,000 worth of computer components over the past two years from newegg, and I've only had maybe one problem with them : Problem : They forgot to ship a cpu along with everything else. Solution : Called them, told them, they overnighted a new one. Simply the best...

    Ipod trouble - won't restore

    Here's my problem : I bought a broken 15GB on ebay (hard drive was bad) and replaced the hard drive with a 40GB. Little did I know, the 40GB wouldn't fit. I sold the 40GB on ebay and got a 20GB. For some reason, when I try to restore it to factory defaults, it restores successfully then...

    ATI Tool Fan Control Problem (X800 pro)

    I had my X800's fan running at 70% for a couple days, and all of a sudden, 10 minutes ago, my fan stopped (didn't die). Needless to say the card got extremely hot and froze my system. I turned my comp back on and found my card temp at 75C Idle (and I'm thinking.. this isn't a 6800 wtf!). At...

    ATIX800Pro/XTPEsoftmod vs MSI NX6800Ultra

    It looks to me like the ATI card is getting some artifacting on nature. If you look at all the tests, they're relatively close together (10-25fps roughly). The nature one is over 70fps. I don't believe this is a reliable benchmark.

    How far can you push the X800 pro card (OC)

    I have had two X800 pros now and neither overlocked past 500/500. I keep getting the video recovery. Do you guys get this ? How do you get past it ?

    Poor performance

    double check to make sure your fans are running? that's my best guess (happened to me once)

    Should i cut the Lian??? Those are my LL case mods

    Krotch, try putting your hard drives further back in the bay and pushing them more toward the front of the case. You will have to remove one of the two 80MM front fans, but it will be well worth it :)

    LCD Mod - simple problem

    Or get a scan converter that will take a vga signal and convert it to a composite video signal suitable for input to the lcd. That is what I want, is that feesable? I don't really want to spend too much money hooking this stupid thing up :P If all else fails, I suppose I'll get the ATI...

    LCD Mod - simple problem

    I got my LCD and it powers on great. The problem lies with me being able to convert RCA into something useful. Does anyone have any links to some adapters/converters that will allow me to plug directly into my DVI or VGA? Thanks!

    How do I know when the AGP/PCI lock is working?

    I'm wondering the same thing. I'm going to be buying the same motherboard as you. Let me know how your board treats you :) Also, you might want to try ClockGen or just try bumping up the FSB to 220 or so and see if it randomly reboots.

    WeldZilla 2 "A New Beginning" Mod!!

    Just curious, why is the pump external? Are you old fashioned and went for a 115V pump :) Like I said though, the table, case, and mod in general is fantastic. I've only seen a few like this that have really gotten my attention.

    VPU Recover

    That definition seems broad and pointless. When does it decide that you need to do a recover? And is it safe to turn it off?

    VPU Recover

    What exactly is it ? It seems to me to be a tool by ATI to keep people from overclocking. Is it safe to turn it off ? Thanks :)

    Another successful x800 pro to XT mod - here's how

    Pro successfully modded into an X800 XT PE. Having two problems that I'll somehow fix : 1. ATI Tool won't show me the 3D View. It says "must have pixel shader 1.1" or something around those lines. 2. On webpages, IRC, etc., it looks as though its flipping through a book. Like, when I...

    Best X800 Pro VIVO model to buy?

    Wow, I ordered from and they shipped within fifteen minutes. If they could do that consistently, it's faster than newegg :O I'd cancel your order, who knows how long it will be before futurepowerpc gets them in. PCSS has them in stock and will ship instantly :) I'll...
