I have a general problem, and a unique idea for fixing it. I just need a crap load of help to figure out how to do it. I have an HP ZD8000 Laptop (P4 3.0Ghz, lightscribe, 1 GB ram, 80 GB HD) that I want to use to build a carputer. Seeing as how this is my only laptop at this time, i would like to be able to use it out of the car as well. (already have a quick mounting option taken care of) I wanted to know if anyone had devised a method of either detected hardware or whatnot to boot on using a different profile that would be the correct resolution (currently run 1680x1050, too much for a xenarc) and start the front end. My only idea so far that i doubt would work is to have a USB harddrive and attempt to make it a primary drive while switching my laptop to the "slave when primary is present" state. Any help is apprectiated.
No announcement yet.
