/diy/, I have a weird fucking problem. I just moved my PC into an HAF 912 case, and I can get the mobo and case fans to spin up, but I get NOTHING but a black screen unless I use the old dell case power switch (OEM).
Now, I traced the wires on the OEM switch to line up the new power switch, because a pinout diagram for this motherboard doesn't fucking exist. I match everything up precisely, power switch, HDD LED, power LED... except a couple on the OEM switch on the bottom that don't go to anything. There's no reset button on the OEM switch, it appears... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
A stupid project I want to do is make a kart/mini cycle car with a bike engine, cuz revving to 15k going 60+ on a kart sounds like a blast. But I want to mount the drive package to the front but still have it rwd because 1) mounting it to the back is too easy so that's no fun and 2) weight up front means less wheelie. I could run a long ass chain through a conduit but that would be an absolute pain. I toyed with how to adapt the chain drive to a driveshaft system with bevel gears as a ring and pinion but it would also probably be a pain to get it right and reliable.... Comment too long.

Hey /diy/, so I ordered a soldering pen for 3$ online which I admit was probably a mistake in its own, anyways it includes 2 soldering wires. >pic related
Does anyone know if I can use these wires to solder on a circuit board? There is no instructions or descriptions of what material the wire is made out of, but all I know is that it's very flexible even more flexible than a regular staple.
Solder wire comes in 2 'common' types. Lead, and Lead-free.
Most old hands will tell you lead-free solder is utter garbage, blaming it for everything from tin-creep causing shorts, to poor thermal properties to causing cancer. I do know this: It requires much higher temperatures to flow nicely, meaning more stress on components during install and risking damage to legacy equipment. In my job I work with a lot of 70's and 80's era stuff, which is all quite... delicate. Lead free is just too stressful to use for that stuff.
Lead solder is more workable at lower temps, more stable as it ages (no creep), although it does have a lot of NASTY side effects - It's lead after all and it was removed from modern electronics for a good reason. Prolonged exposure can make you sick, and it's effects are cumulative.
The solder your pen came with SHOULD be lead-free and SHOULD have a label saying so. If not, bin it and decide which you want to work with. You can find datasheets online for all solder types (A LOT more than just leaded/lead free, those are just the most common, and even then the alloys vary).
>>918780 Depends on your hair really Experiment. I get dandruff from most shampoos except for like 2 brands I don't know why I don't like the price but hey it works and if you have extremely long hair like me combing it 2 times a day get rid of most of it
>>918780 change shampoo use fingers like a woman does when you are rinsing rather than just when applying will help but the right shampoo can stop it even if you pretty much jump out with lather still in your hair.
>>917590 You really couldn't manage to google this? You thought making an entire thread and waiting for people to respond was a more efficient way to answer your question? Are you 12 and never seen a valve before? WTF is going on here?
So X-mas is in a few days, and i found the *PERFECT* gift for my little brother, who just recently started getting into pokemon. My original Pokemon Blue cart! And my save file(which i poured more than 200 hours into) is still there too! Problem is, i bought it back in '98, so the fact that my save is still there is amazing enough, but its probably a matter of days/weeks before that battery that is keeping the save file dies. I have all the parts i need to swap the battery out(Soldering iron, solder, the replacement 2025 battery) and i see there are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>918210 I don't know about replacing the battery, but first I'd use a Pokemon Stadium (N64) cartridge and a transfer pack to backup all your pokemons (is that the plural for pokemon?) and then change the battery.
>I'm new to electronics, where do I get started? There are several good books and YouTube channels that are commonly recommended for beginners and those wanting to learn more, many with advanced techniques. The best way to get involved in electronics is just to make stuff. Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty.

I was fixing a hole in my basement today from another diy project gone wrong. Upon clearing the drywall (brown backed) hole I noticed that some areas that had been chipped had little clear/silver hairs popping out ...it was isolated and maybe in one or two area with maybe a handfull of tiny little strands sticking out. My question is...what the hell are they? It cant be asbestos as this basement was built around 2000...I know nothing about drywall so maybe someone can help?
