Netbook mini-pcie mod

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I've decided to try to add a Broadcom Crystal HD video decoder to my old Asus eeepc 1000HE. To do this, I need to add a working mini-pcie slot to the motherboard of the computer, which I believe has been done successfully in the past. So far, I've added the slot and connected a lot of broken traces, but I still can't figure it out, so I figured I'd throw it out to the internet to see if anyone has any suggestions that might help me out. I haven't bought the crystalhd card yet but I'm using a wifi card instead (identical to the stock card, both working)

to be honest, I tried this a few years ago and never got it done and I don't remember why I did half of these, but it seems to be in line with everything I can find on the internet right now, so I suppose it's right.

So here's the slot, and above it are the pcie lines PETp0/PETn0 and PERp0/PERn0


Connection of USB lines, clock signals and power


some more power? lines


and the last connection for the PETp0/PETn0 lines



I'm using this http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sgy-net.com%2F1000he.html&act=url for my main reference for the soldering and this http://steveries.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/mini-pcie.jpg for identifying the connections.


computer still boots fine and I can measure voltage on all points of the card except the 3v3 aux pin (Connected 3v3AUX as well, still not registering), but it isn't recognized by the computer (using linux right now, doing lspci to check hardware)

anyone ever done this before or have any ideas?

a bit of extra info - I can't seem to figure out if pin 7 (CLKREQ#) connects anywhere. Do you think I could take that signal from the other pcie slot and have it work?

it didn't
