Changing old touch screen desktop into desktop monitor

So I have this seriously old touch screen desktop from FEC. I've been browsing around and found how to turn laptop LCD screens into monitors using controller boards, finding them by looking up the model number of the screen. I could probably use find the monitor stuff by myself, but when it comes to the touch screen interface, I'm clueless on what to look for. These are the pictures that I took of the boards and model numbers, and I'm assuming I would need something to either connect to the middle board, or something to replace it. I'm willing to take on the task, I just don't know entirely where to go from here as this is the first time I've really dug deep into something like this. The model number and barcodes are from the back of the monitor. At the end of the think white wire there are a ton of connections that go the the old motherboard of the computer. Is there anyone that might be able to give me a hand on what to find? Number on the large center board:............................RG9000PB0880   V1.0                              Below the number there is another number: 0821 Number for the small connector on the far right:.....RG9000PB0260 There's USB1 and AUDIO1 connectors on the large board in the center, and I'm assuming the long board at the bottom is power. mini-update: Could it also be possible to change the touch screen controller, run it into my computer via USB, and then find a controller for the LCD screen?

Buy or Build a PC?

I'm having some trouble deciding whether to buy a bare bone kit computer for less and build it, or buy a more expensive pre-built one.Here's one of TigerDirect's bare bone kits-http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3825393I like this one but the main problem is that I'm worried i will get all the connections messed up (serial cables, pin connectors, etc.) But it is about $100 less than this pre-built one belowhttp://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=8885575&type;=product&id;=1212192194316So here's the whole thing in short- the bare bone kit computer i might screw up, but it is a lot less than a pre-built one (I'll probably trust the pre-built one more).Please help me decide which one.

spiral clock hands

I want to make a desk clock as a small project for myself. What I am looking to create is a slim clock with a spiral hour hand. The time would be told by graduated marks on the back-plate i.e. as the hour hand turns, the spiral increases and the correct hour is reached by the spiral, hard to explain, can't upload a photo as instructable server maintenance is under-way, hopefully I'll be able to upload the brief sketch I did in paint which might help!! What I am looking for is suggestions on a material which could be used for the hand, it needs to be thin so as to make it as easy as possible to tell the time and also strong enough not to distort under its own weight. Haven't decided whether it's going to be a normally incrementing spiral or a Fibonacci spiral (or similar logarithmic spiral)

Creating a Cell Phone (Kangaroo PC + 4G LTE module + LCD Touchscreen)

Good afternoon, all! As the title sums up, I am looking at the Kangaroo PC [1], which is a $99 battery-powered pocket PC, about the size of a cell-phone, with a tablet processor and a full Windows 10 OS, and I'm asking myself one question. Why is this not a cell phone yet?! Basically, I want to install an LCD touchscreen, a 4G LTE module, and some software. This project is similar to Raspberry Pi cell phones, in the sense that it will be DIY, and the new Microsoft Lumia, in the sense that it hooks up to a monitor for desktop. Does anybody have any advice, or know what direction to point me in? I am specifically asking for help with the 4G LTE module and maybe the LCD Touchscreen. I'm not sure what to get, where to get them, or how to install them. (I've searched and found miniPCIe and m.2 modules, so far.) Thank you!!

If you connect the 12Vdc and -12Vdc on a desktop PSU do you get 24 Volts?

I used to understand more about electricity and electronics, i swear. I have used the yellow-to-red (+12 to +5 Vdc) method to create 7 volt dc connections for my desktop and xbox fans. I understand the concept of differences in voltage. Do these concepts carry over into negative voltage available on the ATX power supplies?

How to upgrade an old PC to a simple media PC? Answered

I have a very old desktop about 7 years old and its in a very bad condition and can be barely used. It was a home computer before this and  now not many people use it anymore. So I would like to convert it to a media PC to attach it to my TV. I just want a simple media PC that I can watch streams and watch downloaded movies in good quality(Full HD) and just simple PC uses. So I was thinking of upgrading my old PC to a media PC by changing some parts like the graphic cards and all. Bare in mind this is my first time attempting to build a computer so im not very knowledgeable on it. However, I do know the basics of each components in the PC. These are the specs of my old pc ;- -AMD Athlon(tm) 64x3 Dual Core Processor 4200 + 2.2GHz -3.00 GB RAM -NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE -250GB HDD harddisk -32-bit Operating System When I opened up the PC it was in a bad condition and full of dust. When I took out the heat sink, the CPU was stuck to it so I think I damaged the pins of the CPU when I took it out.( But I wanted to change that anyway) By the looks of it there is barely anything I can salvage other than the case. I have attach some photos to show you the condition of it.  I would like to ask some help on some links or advice on is it possible to salvage anything(motherboard maybe) and what components should I be looking at for the uses I want it to carry out. I know a lot of people will suggest to just buy a brand new pre-builld desktop but I really want to try to build this for the experience so I can build a better PC next time in the future.  Thank you very much, Every answer is much appreciated.

How to combine AT and ATX power supplies to power same system (motherboard)?

Hello,   I am struggling to upgrade a certain medical system . The device I have contains an old motherboard which powered by an AT power supply. My problem is that the power supply board (which supplies the AT power) has other functions, and there's no way to be replaced (by an ATX PSU). I already bought the motherboard: http://www.ibase.com.tw/2009/MB970.html , with INTEL core i5 CPU  Cry Cry. I can't risk my power supply board in attempting to operate the new parts (motherboard, CPU, 4 Gb RAM, CPU fan, SATA harddisk, and DVD), I believe it won't stand that kind of power consumption. I know you'll say this won't work at all -I know, but I was thinking about using voltage regulators to generate the 3.3 v rail from the same AT power lines. OMG I really need help about: How I can connect the AT and ATX power supplies to this motherboard (and to the other parts), ensuring that I am not risking my AT power board at all?. Another headache is that the AT power board has to work at the same time with the motherboard. And in order for the system to work the AT power board has to work (you know that a feedback circuit should be completed) that's why it should be connected to the motherboard.   This really became a challenge for me. I can't stop thinking, planning, and dreaming about it. If you have any idea or any experience about this, I would like and hope to hear from you...

Battery powering a Mini ITX Gaming Desktop? Answered

Hi all, Firstly two things; 1) I just wanted to say thank you so much to all of the guys on this answers section, for giving a lot of their time whilst being incredibly helpful, patient and overall just awesome! Just to name a few of the most consistently helpful; steveastrouk, Kiteman, iceng and Downunder35m.  2) I know this question has been asked before and asking it again has been my last resort after trawling the web as I know reviving old topics can irritate the OP etc.. But anyway: I am building another PC, with the challenge of it being a portable 'console killer'. The idea is to make a Mini ITX gaming PC as small as possible (a challenge in itself) which can run for an hour or two on battery and then needing to be plugged in and recharged whilst still being usable. The current specs;  Asus H81I-PLUS Intel H81 DDR3 Mini ITX Motherboard (1150 Socket) Intel i5 3.2Ghz Processor Zotac Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB GPU CPU Liquid Cooler Corsair Hydro H55 120mm Fan So I need all of this...   ...battery powered... So I was thinking; all a PSU is is an AC adapter and step down transformer. So all I would need is several laptop batteries (and a way of charging them seperately) , a way of mounting them, a voltage regulator and wiring to power the computer and bypass the battery AND charge it when I am using a laptop external PSU. Right? But then, is the high current from a wall socket necessary to a PC's function? Thanks!

What to do with a bricked all-in-one pc?

I have a bricked Dell Studio 19 All-In-One PC, and wanted to know if I could use it for something. It was bricked by a failed BIOS update. There was a program from dell which came installed and updated any other of their software and drivers on the computer. Only after the failed update I found out that updating the BIOS is really unnecessary. The only fix I know for the motherboard is replacing it, and the only place I found out that refurbishes them are from a company in the US, and it's not cheap at all. (I used to live in the US, and moved to Brazil later) Well anyway, I wanted to know if I can use the computer for something else, like use the monitor for a different computer and use its bluetooth mouse and keyboard on a different computer too. I think the only thing really useful in it is the processor which is already old (Intel E7500 and a 320GB HDD). http://www.dell.com/us/dfh/p/studio-one-19/pd http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/studio-one-19/diagnose Thanks for the help!
