    what i want to do is take an acer one and remove the monitor and mold the screen into my dash...then mount the pc part of the laptop under my passenger seat running a monitor extension to the dash....

    would you be able to tell me what kind of cable the monitor uses?

    It's one of those plastic ribbon type cables, same as what a Lilliput monitor uses between the board and the lcd. It has a metal retainer clip on the motherboard end, much better that those plastic ones that always break as soon as you look at them. I use mine for many different things, so when I did my install I had to keep the laptop intact and usable outside of the truck. I'm not entirely sure how you would go about extending that cable unless you can find a longer one somewhere. The problem might be matching the connector on the mainboard end. I was going to take pictures of the internals when I did all the mods but forgot to get the camera out until I was done.

    thanks for the reply.


    im thinking i could probably cut that wire in half and solder in some wires to extend it, i really dont see why that wouldnt work, but i could be wrong

    I want to put an acer aspire one into the back of the car and pretty much leave it there but i dont think theres an auto boot on power option for it which is a pity.
    Anyone know of a way around this ? I read something about a wake on lan option but its not very reliable.

    Go with the momentary power switch that has been developed by a mp3car user (http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/user...own+controller). That's what I'd do if it annoyed me to push the power button that much. Mine is mounted on a RAM mount right next to me though. I don't require it, but do use the shutdown software that was released here by blessani (http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/soft...omentary+power).
