Internal Upgrades

To install more devices internally, more USB-connections are needed. I hooked into one of the regular USB-ports and routed the D+/D- signals from the southbridge/chipset to a 4 port USB-hub. To make the port I hooked into work again, one of the 4 ports is connected back to the USB-port via the USB-hub (Hub-to-USB-port and USB-port-to-HUB).

The reason I choose to hook into the USB-port and the spare Mini-PCIe USB connection is that I want to:

  • To be able to use Mini-PCIe cards based on USB later
  • Disable the USB-ports in BIOS and disable all the new devices
  • Not have the devices disabled if I used the webcam or wifi connections

USB hub

GPS with antenna

Bluetooth 2.0+EDR

SDHC card reader

Pendrive

Other Possible Internal Upgrades

  • Modem hook-up via MDC 1.5
  • USB relay power switch
  • New keyboard (non-taiwanese) [2]
  • FM transmitter
  • Switch/relay/transistor to cut power for:
    • Integrated: Webcam, Wifi PCIe adapter, SD card reader, Sound card, Atheros eithernet, Atheros Mini-PCIe adapter
    • USB hub: Bluetooth, SD card reader, GPS adapter, FM transmitter
  • CPU/GPU/Chipset voltage mod
  • Silicon Motion NAND flash replacement
  • Modemport - Wifi antenna, additional ethernet port
  • Modemport as a switch - remove to turn off, plug in to power
