First off... This site has some of the sickest modders out there. Awsome! This is my first computer mod. I've done Xbox's, Cellphones, and alot of cool car audio installs. I'm modding a Bluegear BG-V301. http://www.bluegear.com/products I got this laptop dead and had to mod it already just to get it to work. The voltage regulator and the battery charging circuit were both fried. These are built into the motherboard. I had to loose the battery and ad a 12V relay and a momentary push button. When I want to power it up, I have to hold down the button making the laptop think it's running off battery power. Just before the bios kicks in I let go of the button and the laptop switches to plugged in power. That’s all and now I have a working laptop. Since there’s no battery pack I have lots of room for stuff in there. A free laptop NEEDS to be modded. I always go by "Frogmonster" on the net. So i wanted a back lit plexiglass image of something that looks like a frogmonster in the lid of the laptop. It also needs a back lit keyboard and LED's in the usb ports. I have a small lcd screen out of a cheep PS2 controler sitting around. I'll try to toss that in there somewhere. Enough chat... Lets chop! Hers the laptop in all it's stock glory. The pic i want on the lid. Time to take it apart. Time to gut it! Here's there keyboard and pad live. This is about the only place i'd have the depth to add another LCD screen. So... Heres the LCD i'm installing. Isn't it cute? Here i'm trying it out. I does look better in person. Be great for winamp visuals .
