    posted a message on Compressed Air
    Man, sorry it took me so long to get back to this! But thanks for all the responses. I took a look at this two days ago, and I found the responses really interesting. While I actually meant colonizing a closed facility rather than Mars' atmosphere, it was still pretty cool to look at! But I decided to compress the filtered oxygen to 10,000 PSI; whether or not it was safe and/or plausible I wasn't sure, but the teacher never said anything that challenged it. But I was the only student to take bringing oxygen to the planet into consideration, and I won the contest! Thanks for all the help everyone:)

    posted a message on Using a MIDI Keyboards Speakers for Computer Use
    Quote from SeaWry

    I would assume it would not work well. Also fact your using OSX, compatability is in question.
    Considering it is a MIDI keyboard, it would be best to assume it is ajusted to MIDI level sounds.
    Reason, for absolute reproduction of the sounds on board.


    I just said MIDI to state that its a music keyboard, although it is compatible with General MIDI. But it is programmable too, so I can put sounds on to it to play, but thats not what I was thinking. I'm just wondering if theres any way to utilize its speakers and only that.

    posted a message on Using a MIDI Keyboards Speakers for Computer Use
    So I am basically done building my new computer, but I have a question. I can hear audio fine through it, but I have to use my headphones, because I don't have any speakers at the moment. I'm getting studio monitors in a couple months because I cant afford them now, but my MIDI keyboard has some great speakers, and its right by my computer. I'm just wondering if there is any way to use its speakers for casual use while I'm waiting. I have a Custom PC running OSX and a Casio WK-200 (Also a TASCAM US-122 Audio Interface if I need to run through that.) Thanks to anyone who responds!

    Well we dont want it to turn into a liquid, so thats what I was asking for :P Me and my partner chose mars. What would be a reasonable PSI level for storage in that environment? Or is that even what its measured in? We need about enough to accomodate 100 people for around 400 days. So we would just bring a huge compressed air tank I guess. And It doesnt really have to be intirely plausible (I'm using the Hohmann Orbit Transfer to get there anyway hahaha), since we have like a weeks class time to "realistically" colonize a planet for a year, so whatever.

    For a science project we are talking about colonizing a planet. Because I'm in 8th grade most of the presentations are like "Were gonna fly up there with cows and stuff and make a forest and heres some houses and stuff.", but I'm a bit more interested. As part of the project, I need to bring oxygen to my planet. Of course, compressed air was my first thought. But I am not very good with PSI measurements and stuff like that. But my question is, to what extent can I compress air safely? I've heard answers ranging to 40 PSI to 3000 PSI, but I'm not even sure if thats the right measure for it. And another question I've been thinking about, is if the air gets cold enough as well as compressed enough, at any point will it turn into a liquid? Just a couple thoughts, thanks for any answers!

    Quote from ImThat1Guy

    When I built my Hackintosh, I had a Pentium G620 (no HD3000) and an Nvidia GT 520. I plugged in the 520, booted it up, did the install, Multibeast, etc., and it worked fine.


    Sigh. I want that hahaha. I seem to following the exact instructions I've been given from several people. You'll probably know this though. Am I supposed to to boot from USB-HDD, or USB-ZIP, or what? I assumed it meant one of those two when they said choose USB from the boot menu.

    Go into your BIOS and switch the default output to the HD3000.

    However, you should be able to use the graphics card just fine for installation purposes on OSX. You will get a video output, and AFAIK hardware acceleration is the only thin not enabled without drivers, though then again I don't remember even installing any GPU-specific drivers, and my system works fine. Regardless, boot up with the graphics card, install OSX and Multibeast, then reboot and you should be good to go.


    Have you made a hackintosh before? I've wanted to talk to someone on here rather than Tonymac, because theyre not sure what to do. But I heard NVIDIA 6XXX series cards have trouble, so to install with HD3000, and then switch back once its installed. But anyways, PM if you have and I'll explain my situation.

    posted a message on Video Output Problems
    I am in the midst of a hackintosh build, and have encountered a problem. My graphics card works great, and the video works fine. But, while I am installing OSX, it is required to use my Intel HD Graphics 3000 from my CPU. Only thing is, when I try to use video through my motherboard, nothing displays on the screen. But when I use the GPU, it works fine again. Is this a defective motherboard, or defective CPU, or am I doing something wrong? Build is:

    posted a message on Booting Into BIOS
    It worked!!! I switched to a different PCI-E cable that came with the PSU, and then I messed around with different combinations like DVI into MOBO, DVI into GPU, VGA into MOBO, etc, and it worked on an alternate DVI port on the graphics card. I then spammed the delete key instead of holding it, and the BIOS popped up! Thanks for all of your help!

    Have you tried DVI?


    Yeah, Ive tried DVI into both the MOBO and GPU, as well as VGA into both.

    How does it beep?

    It should just be one short "blip" for a successful POST.

    You might need to leave it on for a minute or two.

    It should default to the graphics card, there is no need to use the intenal graphics unless the mobo is set to ignore the PCI graphics.

    Your PSU should have a 4 pin CPU connector, use that instead of the 8 pin one.

    Are you sure everything is plugged in properly? The graphics card for instance?


    Read your mobo manual.


    Yeah, Its just a short high pitched beep. And I cant seem to find it. I'll look through all the cables again though.



    Quote from SeaWry

    Honestly if there is no motherboard beeps, its all working. Just something video level is not, also double check power connection as said above to your GPU. It should have one PCIE 6 pin connector on it.


    Alright, I'll check the GPU again. Thanks for all of the replies so far!

    But to anyone who can answer, what do I need to press on the keyboard to boot into the BIOS? Or do I even need to press anything?

    posted a message on Booting Into BIOS
    I just finished building a new computer last night. I booted it up for the first time a couple hours ago. All fans are operating, all lights are on that show power, and the little speaker you plug into the front panel connectors beeps when I boot up. Only thing is, nothing displays on the screen, at all. Monitor is on, plugged into the motherboard via VGA instead of the graphics card via DVI (good idea?). I'm basically clueless at to what to do. My motherboard is revision 1.3, so I held F3 while it was booting up. Is that right? The monitor works, because when I turn it on the Acer logo comes up on the screen, then it says no signal, then it goes black. And I think because of the fans and stuff, the computer is working? I dont know... Is there a disc I'm supposed to boot to?

    Build is:

    Also, at the top of the motherboard, the processor controller, or whatever plugin it is, was only 4 holes, and the cable that came with the power supply was 8. Was it a good decision to go ahead and plug it in? It still fit perfect, there was just 4 holes hanging off the side.

    Thanks to anyone who responds!

    This is epic! Did you perhaps make a post of this before it was finished? I remember seeing a post with a similar design a while back. I was going to recommend covering it up, but looks like you already did that. Nice job bro!

    I am thinking about putting an additional $100-150 for better parts. I was thinking about getting a 120gb SSD drive (I dont need much more memory than that) and upgrading something else.


    If you were to do that, I would still keep an HDD too (even if its 250 GB), so you can backup files and have some extra space. Even an external drive will do, but I would not completely rely on an SSD.
