Sup /dyi/, So I've got this led screen notebook with a power supply problem. Whenever I plug it on charger, the backlight goes off. I've done some research and found out that led screens doesn't have inverter, which would be point to be fixed in this case. Notebook on battery, screen is ok. A strange fact that may be associated to this is that the notebook charging led goes off when screen is on, and vice-versa (so it stays on when notebook is shut down). Any ideas to fix this? pic kinda related, its not this model

Will a wire wheel remove temper or damage the steel in anyway? I've always been curious about this. Not much info on it really. I'm curious because I've come across a truckload of extremely rare antique tools and want them in usable condition. Is it ok to use clean them with the wire wheel all the way down to clean metal? Most tools are down to that blackened but not rusted look. Wondering if it's cool to take that off.

I need to learn French in a year from right now so I can apply to a scholarship and spend a year in Toulouse (I don't even know if it's spelled like that, anyways) I barely have time to take extra classes because I work after school. I guess the question is, what are my chances of learning French all by myself? Implying I get an online course or something... Any ideas? Has somebody been in the same situation? Pic unrelated

Hey /diy/ I've been wanting to build my own gaming computer for a while and my friend sent me to this site to make a list of parts. I went through and picked some higher rated and lower priced items, but I'm not sure if it's a good setup. Thoughts? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TvQzpg

Plasti Dip!

I'm going top Plasti Dip my laptop lid matte black in a few days and I'm wondering if there is a limit to how small of pieces you can peel off without peeling up parts you want on. I need to get it off the Asus logo without damaging the rest. I've seen how-to's on HOW to do it but not the limits of it. If anyone knows, /diy/ knows. On a side note, what are some other cool tech related things /diy/ has done with plasti dip?

scultping over plastic

I'm wanting to modify my Roboreptile (or Robotyrannus) into a dragon. I'm attaching movable wings and skin. I'm also wanting to sculpt the head a bit to look more realistic (with scales and horns). What is a good sculpting clay I can use to cover the plastic? I'm wanting it to dry/ cure in place on the plastic. (I've dried simple play-doh, which worked, but shrank a little. I was just wondering if there is a better clay to use.)

Guitar Kit

19 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I was wondering what /diy/ thought of guitar kits? Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of tools, just some basics or else I'd love to build one from scratch. I kind of want to at least assemble and paint a guitar. I already have a decent Ibanez so I want this next one to stay in a different tuning since they'd both have a floyd rose. I will probably eventually change out the stock pickups from the kit down the line. So anyone try or made one of these kits? What do you think?

Friend of mine is piss poor with asshole family and can't afford getting any HEPA mask. Wet towel did not help at all, and is pretty much locked in a room because of allergy (dust and plants) are there any good home ways to make HEPA filter? or maybe there are filters of that kind lying around without knowing it?

Anyone into CB radios? Took my Cobra 29 LTD out of my old car and decided to hook it up to a PC power supply. Was wondering if this whip antenna looks good to you guys? I can hear great, but my transmit isn't so good. I think it's because of the garbage coax I got from Radio Shack. Other than replacing the coax with high grade, any suggestions to improve my send and receive?

So id like to show some people that would be interested in my work, what i can make out of that. But most importatnt question is - where ? if anyone has any idea, ill be thankfull for anything...

Air Compressor woes

4 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Heyo /diy/na-sores. I'm having some trouble with my air compressor that I received as a gift a few weeks back. I turned it on today and was using it for about an hour when it sputtered and stopped pumping in air, so I turned it off. After a half hour I turned it back on again, and instead of pumping air in, I only hear a hum, like an electrical buzz. After a little youtubing and googling, I tested the start capacitor and it's testing good as far as I can tell. It has approximately 145V and is steadily declining, so it's holding charge. My question is this - What other steps can I take to diagnose the issue? Are there any other resources you'd suggest to refer to? I want to become self-sufficient and want to learn how to properly use and maintain my equipment, pls halp. Pic related, it's the compressor I was given.
