Upgrades and Accessories / Internal USB/BT
« on: April 15, 2008, 10:52:56 AM »
Ok, sorry I don't have pix and I know this forum is loosing interest w/ the age of these laptops, but I did find something interesting.  The bluetooth module used internally is essentially a USB device.  The first 4 pins of the cable that comes with it are +3.3v, Gnd, D+, D- (if memory serves it's D+, D- and not the other way around...check online for acer bluetooth mod).  Some USB bluetooth sticks can use 3.3v instead of USB spec 5v.  I recently hacked the end off of a USB bluetooth module and built a cable inside my laptop and it WORKS!  Module turns on and off w/ the wifi button on the front.  If you could find a 5v supply somewhere you could potentially have an internal USB port if you didn't want to mess with bluetooth.  The module I built was heat-shrunk and still fit where the OEM module would go.  I used a cable I got online that fit the motherboard and then 4-wire phone cord to attach the module.  USE THIN CORD as there's not a ton of room to run the cable, mine barely fit!

Does anyone know what the pinout is for the internal bluetooth module?

Does anyone know if there's a good way to activate the external VGA port?  I'd like to hook up to my plasma tv when I work from home :)
