Directhardware Acees to IO in NT/2K Fix
Hey all, i found this tonight, for getting a character display to work under NT 2K, (maby XP)
click on port/io to d/l it if you want to test it out
D/L Description: Simple user mode DLL and NT kernel driver to allow direct hardware I/O access.
Now the bad part is i havent been able to get it to work with any of the winamp plugins but maby someone will have some idea on configuring it.
however, theres this program LCDcenter http://www.borderfield.com/lcd.php
with the above port thing alows lcds to work under nt 2k, you can get it to display cpu/time/date/all tempretures/voltages/fans speeds/hhd free+total space/can check emails and display if u have any new/and also winamp but that didnt seem to work for me.
one problem i have eno****ed so far is that is only uses the first 2 lines of my 4x40 but u can program it to display lots of screens, e.g. screen 1 will come on for x mount of time displaying something on both lines then wipe clear and display the next screen and so on and repeat.
(sorry i never make sense when i ramble on ull just have to get it and play around with it)
oh yeah for the temps/voltages/fans etc. u need a program MBM (motherboard monitor) running and setup. i think maby why it didnt use bottem 2 lines is the program but been designed fro a different wiring up which ill check later.
its ok not to ignore me hey?
doesnt anyone have any thoughs on this,
ive read posts in several topics bout ppl wanting to run lcds in 2k and xp ?
well, I didn't mean to rip you off, I found the program too ya know...
Only a few people will know whAt I am talking about...
