  1. Thanks for that link barry. I will be gettin one on order soon as payday gets here :)
  2. Wish I knew some of these people and could take that money off there hands. I'm sure I could find a bill to pay with it or even buy that new car or computer or somethin else i need, but a car wash? I'll never understand why they do that :(
  3. No way in hell I'd pay that much when I have a hose out back and can do it myself. That is such a waste of money.
  4. Yeah I haven't heard anything either and I filled out the for last Friday. I'm starting to think it's just another wonderful scam :(
  5. Sorry for the long delay without a reply but I recently moved and it took a while to find out who provides internet way out here in the woods lol. I looked at my SSD and it actually looks like it's connector is that of a pci express and that's no good for me because I don't have any computers other than that one that has such a slot :( I can provide a pic if you think that would help any.
  6. Digip it's cool I made an even bigger snafu then that lol. I just realized while doin a search for somethin else that i somehow set my google searches to default to news results. :( I have a pinout that shoud work. I'm going to try it out in the next couple days. Thanks for helpin though. Now I just have to figure out how to interface it with a DVI or VGA port. here's the pinout if it helps you any. Pin 1 ML_Lane 0 (p) Lane 0 (positive) Pin 2 GND Ground Pin 3 ML_Lane 0 (n) Lane 0 (negative) Pin 4 ML_Lane 1 (p) Lane 1 (positive) Pin 5 GND Ground Pin 6 ML_Lane 1 (n) Lane 1 (negative) Pin 7 ML_Lane 2 (p) Lane 2 (positive) Pin 8 GND Ground Pin 9 ML_Lane 2 (n) Lane 2 (negative) Pin 10 ML_Lane 3 (p) Lane 3 (positive) Pin 11 GND Ground Pin 12 ML_Lane 3 (n) Lane 3 (negative) Pin 13 CONFIG1 connected to Ground1) Pin 14 CONFIG2 connected to Ground1) Pin 15 AUX CH (p) Auxiliary Channel (positive) Pin 16 GND Ground Pin 17 AUX CH (n) Auxiliary Channel (negative) Pin 18 Hot Plug Hot Plug Detect Pin 19 Return Return for Power Pin 20 DP_PWR Power for connector (3.3 V 500 mA)
  7. I did some more searching with different numbers on the boards and finally found some info. There's a little problem though. All the links I found said that my LCD (LP125W02-A1) has the same pinout as another one so I looked at the other one listed and it shows that its supposed to have a 21 pin connection but mine only has 20 pins. attached is a pic of it which you'll noticed I mentioned the wrong colors earlier (dk what i was thinkin lol). Any ideas what I should do next?
  8. All but two wires are the same color (an orange color) and the other two are a blue. I have the LCD completely remove from the old laptop but I didn't throw anything away so that i can salvage more later if I'm able. I left the connector on the end of the cable that goes to the laptop mobo cause of how thin the wires are.
  9. I don't know if I'm looking in the wrong places or if I'm using the wrong search terms but I cannot seem to find the pinouts for the LCD from a Powerbook Pro 15in. I was hoping to reuse this screen without the busted laptop but I am a little uneasy about testing each wire individually applying power and signal until i find the right combination. If anyone can help me at least get started I would greatly appreciate it.
  10. Quick question, does anyone know where i can find an adapter to plug in my ssd from a netbook to my desktop so that i can save the files before i reformat and install a new system? I'm getting my netbook ready to go into my case for my carputer but before i put it in there and close it up i want to have this done.
  11. Here is a link to where you can find the manual and i've already looked it does talk about network setup. Maybe you'll be able to find what you need there.
  12. Did you have a GPS unit setup with yours? I'm looking at doing that with mine when i get the time and money. I was planning on gettin a usb one like the bu-353 or the nd-100 from US Global Sat INC. I don't know how well it'll work with the system I plan to use but surely i'll manage to find a use for it if not lol
  13. I would suggest takin a look at mp3car.com. They have several things of interest there. I plan on starting a project like this one day soon. I was planning on puttin a linux system on an SSD drive and using a netbook for most all the part. my plan is to take the screen off and put a touchsceen panel on it with a custom bezel to match the car interior. I'm goin to mount the motherboard in a custom case with plenty of ventilation and mount it behind the dash under the radio. I can go on but I'll quit for now lol. Let me know if you'd like to hear more.
  14. I would suggest contactin some of the local businesses and colleges. I was collecting several computers from local colleges simply by calling them and seeing if they had any old hardware they were gettin rid of and found one that gave me 6 computers at one time. Most were older than dirt lol, one was actually a pentium 100 and in a configuration that id never seen before but it worked for what i wanted it to. Just a note though some places will not have anythin to give away because they can donate it and get tax benefits but don't give up after the first few say they cant help you.
  15. Well I wonder if they learned their lesson or not lol. how long you think it'll be before they get back on?
