    This is the sketchup of my case. My brother-in-law thinks he can get this done for me at his work. If not, I'll probably get blk02si to cut and bend it up for me.

    Tomorrow starts my vacation. I've got no more workdays until next year! Yay!

    I am ordering through blk02si. His work has impressed me all over the place and my brother in law fell through.

    Yesterday I hooked up a USB adapter to my notebook DVD-ROM and made a power cable for it. Oops. It takes 5V and not 12V. Still works, thank goodness. I at least got the polarity correct.

    I have the case from Joe! Woot. Looks so great. I have a bit of drilling and tapping to do. Tomorrow I am going to head out and grab a few standoffs. I will take some pictures of the process.

    And the roads here in Seattle are driveable again.

    Here's what my car looked like when I got home from my trip to NYC the day before Christmas Eve.

    Thanks.

    I have things together, but the image on my monitor is upside down and backwards now. I searched around for an answer, but only found one other thread that had a similar problem. I asked for help over on the LCD/Display forum in this thread.

    If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thx.

    Red face Driver

    Firstly check the actual screen isnt in upside down, im sure uve done it right but try checking nyway, i would then at this point usually say drivers, but its upsidedown at the post screen so doubt its drivers, mebe the bios is getting confused, check there for a setting that looks wrong, (BE CAREFULL IF YOURE UNEXPERIENCED WITH BIOS DONT FIDDLE WITH IT IF YOURE UNSURE, U SCREWED BIOS IS A BAD THING), or mebe some connections are wired incorrectly, I dunno if thats possible with these screens? Im not an expert on screens, im a computer technician not a scren guru (yet ).


    Good Luck, let me know how u get on!

    It's not the BIOS, as the "NO SIGNAL" message is also upside down and backwards.

    I have hacked BIOSes before. This isn't that. The problem exists in the monitor. Between the input and the display itself. (Hooking up the computer into a different monitor works fine.)

    Since I'm planning to install a touchscreen, this was an interesting problem. I Googled "touchscreen upside down" and found this post from Techguy Forums. It suggests that you press <Ctrl> and <Alt> and the <UP arrow> at the same time to flip the vertical orientation. Maybe it would work to press <Ctrl> and <Alt> and the <LEFT arrow> -- or <Ctrl> and <Alt> and the <RIGHT arrow> -- to fix the horizontal orientation. I haven't tried these.

    Then I Googled "touchscreen image upside backwards" and got a link to the Technology Questions forum, where one answer was to use Ultramon. You can try before you buy.

    When I Googled "touch screen upside backwards", one suggestion was to "have a look in your video cards control panel. It may have been set to rotate the display by a hotkey accidently."

    Another gave this more detailed advice:
    "Go to a blank spot on your desktop
    Right click
    go to "Properties"
    click on "settings"
    click on "Advanced"
    go to "graphics driver"
    click on "graphics properties"
    click on "rotation"
    Then rotate it by 180degrees. Thats all..."
    (I did this on my EeePC, and the setting is there.)

    And one last suggestion was to update the TS drivers.

    I hope one of them works for you . . .

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    Most of these are used inside Windows to change the orientation. I am going with most likey due to Post is upside down that the screen has gotten placed in the housing upside down. I would check the orientation with a known working one of the same type. I know I have done this once and on most displays it is easy as the screen will fit either way. Just my 2 cents worth.
