    Non-POSTing MSI MS-903

    So I'm building a SFF box with a Mini-ITX MS-9803 board and a Merom T7500 Socket P Core 2 Duo CPU. The board is acting strangely. When I power the board on it will be powered for several seconds, power off for several seconds then power on and stay turned on. There is no beep code or...

    Why so much MicroATX?

    I know this is Hardforum and all but why so much Micro ATX? Is anyone else out there building smaller form factor machines, such as Mini ITX (or smaller)? I don't game much these days (Just Eve Online on my MacBook Pro) and so only take interest in servers and clusters (eyeing Intel's...

    Very finicky mainboard - which CPU?

    My partner has been building a pair of mini-ITX machines to replace a machine in a full tower. One box is serving up storage over fibre channel and the other is intended to run VMWare ESXi using storage from the SAN. When she was building the processing (ESXi) side she chose an IEI KINO-9454...

    Visual alert mechanisms

    I'm losing my hearing and right now and I can't hear my main server 6" away from the case. I need something that can alert me if this overheats so I can tend to it. What are my options for something like this? What options do I have for hard disk failure as well?

    First mac ever and a problem

    Hi guys, I got a macbook pro last month and I have a problem with it, I think. With any pair of headphones the left channel is staticy. It appears that a standard jack isn't getting a full seating in the side of the mac. Does Apple have some weird size jack? Aside from this I love the MBP...

    IE7 Final - does your site render properly now?

    Any gigabit wired router with G-WAP?

    Okay this is a confusing topic. I need a WAP with at least 5 wired ports that support gigabit. Must be available in the UK and it would be a plus if I could mod it to accept an molex connector for power. Will be used in this project, eventually.

    Nikon D100, your thoughts?

    My fiancée is thinking of buying a friend's D100 as a gift to me. He's including a Nikon 25-80mm lens, a battery and charger. He's willing to part with it for £300. I'm wondering what I should expect from the camera. I've read reviews and now I'm looking for practical experience.

    One power supply, five boards?

    I'm in the planning stage for a cluster project which is going to stuff five mini-ITX boards, a whopping six hard disks, and run a five port switch running off of a power supply unit. Now, I fully expect that I'm going to need more than one power supply, but I really don't want to put five...

    CSS media types and testing

    For a while now I've been blindly ignoring a glaring accessibility problem with my website. Go ahead, take a look at the source. To generate the menu on the left I essentially print an entire site map which, given an aural media type, will be read off. That is not what I had in mind when I...

    Any VT-310DP users?

    I'm thinking of building a cluster using this board. I'm wondering if any [H] people are using it or have used it and could give me some impressions of the board. And, of course, what you used the thing for. ;)

    The other side of the lense

    Yesterday my fiancée and I went to London for a photoshoot for a magazine. We were the subjects, and we don't do this as our normal thing. We arrived at the studio at about 12:45, went through hair, makeup, wardrobe and lunch before even starting to get ready to take photos. I never imagined...

    The "I hate backporting" thread

    I'm writing a shell script and it's written on a fairly up to date Gentoo machine. And then I thought "Hey! I know! I'll see if it works on my Solaris 9 box!" And I get tons of errors. o Bash 2 doesn't seem to like the 'local' keyword. o tar, of course, doesn't recognise the 'z' (gzip)...
