Ps3 laptop

Post by Malott21 » Sat Sep 17, 2011 11:22 pm

I have searched all over this forum, not just once but many times on finding out information about the ps3 laptop/gateway 1775 wiring help and getting power from the ps3 psu.

The only one I have found that helped was this one

http://forums.benheck.com/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=37510" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And I looked at bens guide but it doesn't say anything of to where you solder the wires from the gateway 1775w psu to the ps3 and so on.

I'm using 120gb ps3 slim
Gateway 1775w monitor (ben's monitor he used)



If you can shoot any links my way to help me out I'd appreciate it, again Ive googled it and searched threads many times and now I'm giving up on that and asking on the forums!

Thanks

Well, I was just planning to split the power cable to power both devices. However, I'm probably the worst person in the world to take advice off. So if it goes fatally wrong, don't hold me responsible :D

I'm using the same one as ben is and I see how he cut the monitor psu and put it on the back but when he shows the other half inside the ps3 it definitly looks like he cut it into 3 parts or is using a different psu to power the monitor... This is my only question.

Heres the board where he cut it

And as you can see the leftover piece that is on the right side of the ps3, that piece is like in a rectangle as to the piece cut out before. Did he use different psu?
