  1. Ohhh, that’s pretty sweet. I might do that, thanks!
  2. I have an extra brand new router that I have no use for. It seems like a shame for it to be gathering dust. Does anyone know of any projects or extra uses for routers? I didn’t really know which category to put this under so here it is.
  3. Hey guys, I am looking to use a phone or just the phone display as another monitor for my computer. Primarily to display music being played as well have pause play, etc. How easy and expensive is it to do this and is it possible to use the touchscreen aspect of the screen as well? I’m open to anything.
  4. Thank you! I will look into it some more. This is a big help.
  5. I agree, but she was simply busy and couldn’t afford the downtime to send it back and ended up accidentally keeping it past warranty. What would you recommend me do now to try and fix it. I don’t know what else to try.
  6. My sister has an Asus Q405UA. She has been having on and off problems with wifi, trackpad and her sd card reader the whole time. A while ago I tried fixing it and only resolved the trackpad issue. Today, I spent a couple of hours and followed every guide and reinstalled drivers from the asus website. I even reset windows 10. Nothing has seemed to work and I think it might be a hardware issue. Anyone have any guesses?
  7. Don't quote me on this, but you might be able to get an nvme to usb in that gap. If the converter is too big and the usb sticks out, you might be able to desolder the usb plug and attach a usb cable directly to it. It is just an idea, not sure if it would work or fit. Maybe modding something like this: https://www.amazon.com/ZEXMTE-Adapter-Performance-Bridge-Support/dp/B07MTTCC4H/ref=sr_1_17?keywords=nvme+to+usb&qid=1569184962&s=gateway&sr=8-17
  8. I’m late to the party but redbubble has a large variety of anime and geek culture stickers and merch for pretty good prices.
  9. The rgb cables should be pretty easy to fix. You can even get away without any soldering. Should be as easy as trimming away the mesh cable cover and attaching the cables to the connector and the connector to a new plug. Based on the pictures, I can’t tell which connector side was facing out. It looks like the female side was the plug being used. (Male=pins sticking out, female=receiving connector) If originally male connector: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Wholesale-10-100X-4-Pin-Male-Female-With-Wire-RGB-Connector-For-5050-LED-Strip/201163063179?hash=item2ed640bf8b:m:myW5oqnCqrMqzJWZ54YHU-A (This connects the cables without having to solder) https://www.ebay.com/itm/Whosale-Mini-4-pin-RGB-Connector-Adapter-for-RGB-5050-LED-Strip-Solderless-10mm/163386907851?hash=item260a9e5ccb:m:meE1kkFHIYHUJeBDz-ZOfkw If originally female (comes with non-solder connector by the looks of it): https://www.ebay.com/itm/10-x-4-Pin-Solder-Free-Female-Connector-Cable-for-RGB-3528-5050-LED-Strip-Light/223129023881?epid=1262241743&hash=item33f386b589:g:A3cAAOSwzrxUwxIj
  10. Where inside of the case are you planning to store these things?
  11. If you don’t care about looks and are looking for a way to diy it, I have a couple of possible suggestions. You could take a thin small sheet of aluminum and bend walls on and the required tabs to screw it on. Then you can just double sided tape the hard drive on or bend the aluminum to keep the hard drive inside and possibly make holes to screw it in. The easier route is to take a sheet of plexiglass/ acrilic or aluminum in the same size as the old one’s base. That way, it should slide in like the old one but have nothing to hold it in place. Then put thick screws in the holes of the case which would act like pins for the diy hdd sheet to be held onto. Kind of like a shelf is attached to a bookcase.
  12. Looks good and you hid the ketchup and mustard pretty well. Could you add a picture of the front for reference? Also, I hate the one thick motherboard power cable on psu like these. Always made my life a living pain when it came to closing the back.
