  1. As long as the computer does not instantly shutdown you can... I.e. all it has to do is spin it's fans, it does not have to post...
  2. The cable the DFI uses is not wired differently from the "usual" spec, as for Example Epox is... I tried first with my cable that works on my Epox, not looking at the pinlayout and it did not work, so I cut the cable off and crimped it on "just using press on connectors" and it worked just fine... Using it to control one of my UPS units... Oh, and this is on a DFI Expert Take a multimeter and measure resistance between pin1 on the header to pin1 on the connector and so on, they should be "one on one" i.e. 1-1 2-2 3-3 etc etc
  3. It's most probably coil noise With a ground strap around your hand or with one hand hoding the properly grounded case start touching on the coils gently with your fingers, when the tone changes you have found the offending coil, it is caused by the ferrite core moving inside the coil by the ripple current in the circuit... On my DFI Expert it was the coil that is right up close with the PS/2 ports that created the noise, some hot glue took care of it... I've also got a Epox 9NDA3+ that I have been unable to fix it on, even though I changed out the capacitors I thought where responsible for not filtering out enough of the ripple current... But it could also be your powersupply, you can check it the same way as on the mobo and have a high risk of death, or use some rubber thing to poke at the coils with... But generally PSU manufacturers do glue their coils down to prevent this issue to begin with but not all do... (or someone had a bad Monday morning)
  4. Cool, I had no idea that worked, thnx for letting me in on that info! Sooo many times I've written down BIOS settings yet have had a LPT printer connected Anyway, I also think this is a great idea, but the settings for the "CMOS reload" they are saved in the EEPROM right? i.e. in the BIOS chip? And not in the CMOS?
  5. This thread explains it very very much better than I could ever do, it is written for a Soundblaster soundcard but applies here aswell... http://forums.creative.com/creativelabs/bo...essage.id=12170
  6. No mekanoplastik, I really see no reason for why you should downgrade from Windows 2000 to XP There is no performance difference whatsoever, if anything XP is slower with all it's extra services and ugly graphics... I.e. it is more bloated and uses up more RAM The only issue I know of is that SLI will not work in 2000, quite a big issue for those with SLI of course, but I myself do not run SLI and do not plan to so; Windows 2000 Forevva!!!
  7. A bit tricky to measure VCore on the DFI since heatsinks are covering the VRMs... You would have to measure at the positive side of the capacitors connected to VCore on the underside of the mobo, which can be a bit tricky if it's installed in a case
  8. In Network Places rightclick the NIC that is connected to your ADSL bridge, select properties>sharing, enable it... The other NIC will now get an IP of and a small DHCP server will be enabled if I'm not mistaken, otherwise you will have to config the ThinkPad with an IP in the 192.168.0.X range...
