  • Motherboards with built in LCD controllers

                gizmomkr, when it says low-power pentium processor does that mean a laptop processor. There was the other board that said it just took a regular pentium processor, what is the difference? Thanks
                Got started with computers on this board early in high school...now I run a web development company and am about to build my dream machine.

                  I *think* its refering to the CPU voltage requirements.... some use 2 to 3 volts..... others up to 5 volts.

                  I used a standard p133 in my board.
                  Took it out of an old desktop.

                    The cables came in yesterday wooohooo.

                    I was so excited. I had the board sitting on my desk for 2 weeks, all I could do was boot off a flopy and stare at the dos prompt.
                    ( had no keyboard hook-up)

                    I pluged it all in last night. everything works great.

                    I loaded win98 on it, all the drivers autodetected except for the NIC. I found NIC drivers at www.realtek.com

                    Its completely functional, and let me just say for annyone that was thinking of ordering connectors , and soldering there own cables. Its *WELL* worth the 100.00 I spent on the cable kit. the headers are TINY, and tons of pins, with no space between them. It would be verry hard to solder.

                    To annyone else that got this board off ebay-
                    I paid 37.00 for mine, lanner Inc. sells them for 450.00 I highly recomend the board to annyone looking.

                      I also got one of these boards and called Lanner for their prices...then I called Amer.com and found their AE-PLVA board is the same board and their prices for wiring kit was cheape and after the USD-CDN dollar conversion I saved even more..
                      Call Wes in sales in the industrial computer division at 1-800-241-1644..he is quite intriqued with our projects....

                          $66.10 USD for the 3 kits

                          EM-COM-02 COM Cable Kit
                          EM-UKMS-02 USB/Keyboard/Mouse/Sound Cable Kit
                          EM-PLVA-CB FDD/Printer/IDE Cable Kit

                          I called Lanner and they wanted to charge me $39 + $37 + $37 for these 3 kits.
                          $66 sounds like a better deal to me

                          Call Wes..he is cool to deal with..

                            Cyberphox -

                            Glad I used my Amex card, they have a price garentee thing. If I find the same thing for a lower price, they refund the difference

                            I am having a REALLY HARD time finding the cable to connect this thing to the Sharp 8.4 from e-bay.

                            The closest thing I have come across so far is p/n lk-029 this seems (based on a description from a guy that had no idea what he was reading me) to be the correct connector..... who knows about the pin out ...

                            I am trying to get specific data on the pin out from the mb. I called about 10 different supliers today. everyone says " we will look into it and call you back"

                              Did you download the PDF from www.lannerinc.com/users.htm ?

                              They have the pinout for the lcd out in there.
