It's not that I doubted, but I was having trouble wrapping my tiny little mind around it
Christine, thanx for the pics! That was awesome, and it really brought it all together for me.
Looks like you are using something besides the mx700, but I get the idea much more now. I'm still not clear how you can recharge now, but maybe even putting regular batteries in is an easy enough price to pay for the mod!
Ok,here is how i did it.
When you open up the base station, you will see two white connectors. One has 5 pins, and plugs into the antenna PCB. The other, is a 2 pin male-female connector. You can upnlug it, nad see a male end, and the famale end. The famale end, comes out of the main cable (the back main cable), and splits in a y from the USB leads. So stuck this end, (the famel part) out of the floppy hole as well. On the charger's end, i pulled the male connection out the existing cable hole. If i want to recharge, all i do is plug the ends in, and its good to go.
|i have the 5680... does it have an enternal USB on the motherboard???? that would rock, although i have taken the laptop completly apart and did not notice one... i hope i missed it
I am not sure. I know there is the mini0usb connection for the bluetooth, however, i guess i may have been wrong in thinking it looks like a usb port (though will still operate as one).
Also, i have tried taking apart my 5680, but cant seem to find all the screws to remove.. any tips?
