So today I started constructructing a case to protect my $27 mobo and proc
I decided to use plexiglass with edges reienforced with dowel
I didn't care how it looked, it just had to fit
This is the glue drying, I didn't have any clamps to I had to prop it up at what looked like a 90 degree angle
Another side, it was much stronger at this point, I could hold it
I missed some photo ops at this point, but the mobo is in.
Because I didn't measure, I actually sanded my mobo down so it would fit
I also dremeled my vid card so that it would fit in the case (ghetto rigged low profile)
Here I am using a wrench as a clamp, and you can see how I angled the top of the case.
Who needs measuring tape? or straight edges?
At one time i ahd a working carputer in my car everything worked except the sound... now everything is f'ed up
I am currently trouble shooting my hardware
It all started with a hal.dll is missing.
I found about 10 fixes and tried all of them, and they didn't work
So I decided to reinstall windows... God hates me
I load all of the files, then when it gets ready to go to the GUI part of Windows install,
I either go back to setup/dos mode, or get error messages (error: can not load operation system)
The next pictures are our my PC emergency room at my friends house. I killed my home pc and
brought all my stuff to his house, we have my spare monitor and the PSU from my home system
We take turns hooking up our carputers to it and fixing them
This is the first night when we trouble shot from his tower with my mobo messy and dangerous right?
more of the same
Now the bar is for computers not alcohol
More of the same wiht my spare monitor
Overhead view of the operating table, btw we didn't have a switch so we had to
use jumpers to short out the power to turn it on
All the while another friend builds a home-made lcd projector for $80, I I ever finish my carPc this is my next project.
Does anyone know how to fix my hard drive, I can't load an OS onto it and get to the GUI part of the installation. I have messed with my bios non stop It is not just a matter of changing my boot sequence, god knows i have tried that
