    Well actually I would be more interested in seeing it done to cards like the 9700 to make them into XT's. I know it is possible and I think that would just fit into the extreme sort of style of Bit-Tech. Any card which has been replaced by a slightly higher clocked gfx card.

    If you buy a on-off key toggle and a PS/2 or USB numpad you could build one.
    Simply wire the key toggle into the 5V line of the numpad.

    Then set your BIOS password to a number sequence and enable USB legacy keyboard support

    PS2 powered mouse recharger

    Here's one I really want:
    power my mouse recharging station from the ps2 port that it's plugged into.
    or take power from a USB port?

    Can anyone help?

    (I know I've seen something like this before, but the search isn't giving any results)

    A ps/2 port gives you 5v, same as a usb line. Problem is though, it gives you very little amps, so allthough you've got the volts, you still wouldn't be able to power anything more than a mouse or a keyboard (as they don't require very much power). Theres quite a few threads arround here that deal with it, I'll try an locate some for ya :thumb:


    [EDIT] Found It!!!! http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=49115 That'll give ya the info ya need (it's down at the bottom)[/EDIT]

    damn, I know I've read an article on modding a PSOne screen into a computer but I can't remember where I saw it. And no amount of googling turns up anything. I think that you can buy an s-video->psone adapter. Then if you have an s-video out on your video card you're set. But again, I can't find the article.

    I think that this has been mentioned in the Forums elsewhere, but there is a reasonable soldering / desoldering guide available here:

    Soldering Guide by Everyday Practical Electronics

    Click on the 'Pictures' link for more info - I think it is actually more useful than some of the text. If you think it's good enough, it may save acrimonious some work. (although it does lack any practical advice on splicing wires and plastic shrink wrapping, which I feel may be of use to modders)
