Hi Eelhead. Sounds to me as if the connection to the LED is wrong. The point of the resistor modification is to force the LED to behave correctly in the absence of the "real" Cube signals. So there must be something wrong with that connection somewhere.eelhead said:HALPS!!!
OKs so I still lack the PICO power brick so I am using a regular PSU to do this for now
So I followed minihacks guide to getting my touch sensor to work.
I did the resistor off the LED to the #2 on the plug - from that I put it to LED+
#1 goes to 5v constant
#4 I put to PWR+
#5 I put to PWR-
so thing is when the board is not running LED is on and as soon as I touch the sensor it turns on the board but the LED goes out ??
So any Ideas? I swapped the PWR ones around, I put the #2 on to the LED- instead of +
Also I have the back plate the that touch sensor is on grounded with it to the groung on a 4 pin molex off the PSU for testing.
Hmmm....every ASUS board I looked at either a) had the memory slots in a similar position as the GA board, or b) had the memory slots much more towards the middle of the board BUT had the ATX power connection between the outside memory slot & edge of the board....basically leaving me with the same issue of **something** being a bit too close to the touch sensor mechanics.eelhead said:That asrock and then there is also an asus board, I would try to use as the memory, like you said, are positioned a tad in leaving nice bit of room.
I was definitely looking at that one for sure - but alas, the proximity of the power connector sort of scared me away - I thought with the ASRock board, there was nothing in the way to worry abouteelhead said:This one

the power plug might come close but there can always be a work around for that unlike the memory sticks
