    notebook displays

    Exactly, if the asus display is not full HD and uses software trickery to simulate 1080p, then I'm not interested. Still waiting for a reply from asus.

    i dont own one. but good idea, i'll head to officeworks and try it on their display models if they have one.

    the thing is that the advertisement quoted above suggest that the 1080p resolution happens when watching videos with their app True Theatre. I was hoping there would be some owners of this laptop to confirm. I will post the question to asus and update this when I get the answer. Cheers

    sorry i mean can the 15" notebook display run at 1920x1080 full time

    notebooks/laptops like the asus n53 have displays rated at: 15.6" HD (1366x768)/Full HD (1920x1080) True Theater delivers full HD enjoyment While normal DVDs play at 740p at most, True Theater upscales that to 1080p full HD with no performance drawback. At the same time, color and brightness settings are optimized, so movie viewing becomes even more of a pleasure. Action fans benefit from True Theater frame rate boost, going up to 72 frames per second, so fast-moving scenes render smoother than ever. http://www.asus.com.au/product.aspx?P_ID=zzD4OFFWhspritlV can normal computing (word, excel, internet, games) be done at 1080p? or only HD video viewing?
  6. ok I got the computer working but still unstable. It was one of the ram. And I had to put the remaining ram in one particular slot otherwise it won't go past the post screen (just black screen with the blinking underscore). The computer now works but will monitor it as it did crash and won't let me go in the bios (keyboard works). The beep code was useless.
  7. thanks i came across that too but my beep code does not match any of those. but on second thought, maybe the 8 long beeps are actually continuous long beeps indicating VGA problem (there is no post screen after all) before the PC resets. 3 short beeps indicate keyboard but my 3 beeps are long beeps (at least 1.5sec long).
  8. long beeps. Unfortunately I have no spare parts to test them. I must be so unlucky if its the CPU
  9. I had this desktop of for 2.5 yrs: intel core 2 quad q9300 gigabyte ga ep35 ds3r 2gb ddr2 800 ram corsair asus gf 9600gt VGA It just stopped booting (didnt modify/upgrade or even open the thing). No video and the gigabyte mb beeps 3 times, pause, 8 beeps then restarts and repeats. I can't find the beep codes for this mb (waiting for gigabyte response) but a google search suggest either VGA or CPU incompatibilty but this CPU has worked for 2+years. I removed the RAM, VGA, HDD one by one till it was only CPU, mb and PSU but still got the same beep code. Any idea? I even reseated the CPU but no difference.

    ok i did freespace's mod: " Now when ACC is high, and the door is open (sw closed), the current through T1 will go through the 1K resistor then R1. This sets up a voltage divider that is by design, produces a voltage less than BATT/2. This should turn the light on." this parts works! the light now turns on when door open/door sw closed when ACC is high " when door is closed and door SW is open, and ACC is high, it will still turn the light off, though with a small delay with a time constant of 1k*C1." unfortunately this part didn't work. the delay is the same as when ACC is off basically ACC doesn't affect the behaviour of the delay now. do you think a burnt out T2 is the cause? because i've solder/desoldering it a few times when changing resistors... sorry this must be frustrating for you guys

    oh crap i forgot to mention that i replaced the 1k2 resistors with 2k2 resistors in the circuit! does that affect the suggested mods? so sorry about that.

    Hrm, that's strange, it should instantly start fading, but not turn off instantly. Rob. oh ok, maybe i didn't do it right or my circuit thanks freespace, is it ok to use a 1k2 resistor instead of 1k? 1k2 is all i got atm until tomorrow :)

    That's a good thing, right? :P Do you mean that with the modification the fade starts immediately, or it immediately turns off with no fade? Uhm, maybe. I'm not sure, would have to think about it. Rob. the mod turns off with no fade. yeah its a good thing so it doesn't interfere with driving.

    thanks again rob. I moved R1 as instructed. the interior light still stays off when in ACC regardless of door position and won't turn on until the car is off. however, i noticed that when the car is off, if a door is open=dome light on, and then i turn the key to ACC (door still open) the dome light turns off immediately whereas before the R1 mod it would delay fade off (door still open). is it possible to just disable the capacitor when in ACC? so the dome light works as normal(doors open=light on, doors closed=light off) and when all doors close the light turns off with no delay, in ACC mode?

    Whoops, I didn't make that terribly clear. ACC only connects to R1. That terminal of T3 connects to 1) BATT via a 470ohm resistor & 2) The base of T2. [edit]: Schematic has been updated to reflect this much more clearly. If a BC549 used to work as T2, then a BC559 will work in my new function. The original T2 was an NPN transistor, I changed it to a PNP transistor. (Usually transistors are available in complimentary pairs, one an NPN and one a PNP) But please please please run it by someone else (preferably a few someone elses, heh) before you build it :P It's all-too-possible that my idea won't even work, or that there's a simpler way of doing it. Also, at this time in the morning not many people are on Atomic, if you wait till later today there might be a couple more that can help. Rob. ah ic thanks for clearing that up. yeah i'll bump this thread at a more reasonable time lol and maybe bring it up on mp3car.com thanks again mate. you've got the ball rolling :D haha cool. keep the ideas coming! :D but of course get some sleep too :P
