problem with magic 3.1 install
Hi, I'm trying to install a magic 3.1 on my v5 ps2 with a chip clip v2.10. After the install, there seems to be no laser activity, no matter what type of cd/dvd I put in, it goes to the NO DATA screen and I don't hear the laser trying to read it. Could it be a problem with the 5v, ground wires? I used the ones attached to the clip but they aren't any bigger than the other wires.. or does it sound like something else? Also, does anyone know exactly how to test the bios clip? I used the continuity tester to check at all the labeled points and it seemed ok.. is that all I need to check for? Thanks..
Re: problem with magic 3.1 install
Your 5v and ground need to be a larger wire to support the current. So I would try to use a larger wire. And make sure the soldering poinst are done well. This issue you are having deffinatly sounds like a ground issue.
