Yeah tried the same thing too but it didn't work. I guess just have to disable it completely whenever you use the IDE.

Hi. Sorry for not updating.

I've solved it. Turn off any OSD software like Fraps or Rivatuner or the MSI Afterburner OSD.
3  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Arduino IDE Graphics Problem on: February 02, 2013, 08:46:37 am
Hi. I've encountered a graphics problem with the Arduino IDE. The interface is distorted.

I've uploaded a video.



Yes, I have updated everything. Graphics drivers, Java, Windows update. Even using the latest 1.03 IDE.
Yes, I've tried to search for such issues, I've only come across one but there was no solution.

Any help? Thanks in advance.

Computer specs,
AMD X3 720, Asus M4A785TD-V Evo, 8GB DDR3, XFX HD 5770 XXX 1GB.
No issues with games or any 3D applications. HD videos worked fine too.

Thanks for the link  smiley
I'll PM him to see if he has white ones.

It seems that it's only a layer, but it is also present beneath the copper.
Means after it is etched, the PCB is in white.

Here's the guy selling these PCBs.

I want to know where he got these from so I can get lots of it.

Many thanks.

Hi. I came across this copper PCB which is white in color on the other side.
Anyone knows where to get this? From what I found on eBay they're all brown.



Thanks.

Well done. I will make my own PCB version.
Thanks smiley Making my own PCB is one of the most satisfying things that I've done.

What is the board material? Looks very thick in that picture.
Why did only make Vin, +5 available? You will add seperate 3.3V regulator if needed?
I believe its Paper Phenolic, its written PP on the packaging. Yeah it's very thick, had to use a hand saw.
I've got two rails for +5V and ground. So far I've not found the need of using 3.3V yet but if the day comes I'll make another PCB smiley
I'm still in the learning process.

Congreats, you made a very good and comprehensive "how to". It even made me want to make my own PCB's. I've been looking into PCD milling, but you explanation made it very simple.

Oh, one question. Why din't you just use the female headers with long legs? Now you use male and female, can't really see why?

Well done and a very slick tutorial.
I wanted to use female headers with long pins but couldn't find them in my local electronics supplies store. I could have bought it online but it's just a few small parts so why the hassle right.

Okay, had a chance to read your post. Nice job on the process.

Female headers/long legs - these can be tough to find.
If you don't have a part number on hand, they are just about impossible to find.

I've bookmarked some options as I came across them:
Sets of 4 headers:
http://www.sparkfun.com/products/10007
http://wickeddevice.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=8&products_id=90

Single headers:
Bent  header for the oddly spaced D8-D13 header
http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9374

6 & 8 pin headers.
http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9279
http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9280

Haven't seen long-leg 10-pins yet for the new Uno's.

Lots of PCB length headers here

Need to order a lot for free shipping tho.

Thanks for the links bro smiley
I guess I'll buy them in larger amounts for future projects.

Hi. I've made my own Prototype Shield by making the PCB and soldering the connectors on it. It fits my Uno R3 well smiley



I've documented the process in my webpage and I split it into 3 parts.

Part 1 : http://waihung.net/?p=815
Part 2 : http://waihung.net/?p=849
Part 3 : http://waihung.net/?p=863

Oh my bad. Thanks for heads up smiley

@remiss
Thanks smiley

@vishalapr
Try referring to the official schematics and check each connection. it will be tedious but it will take at most 2 hours.
well worth it instead of writing the arduino off.
11  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Cannot run sketches on Adafruit Uno R3 + Windows 7 64 bit on: February 06, 2012, 09:03:06 pm
@Relaxin
I own an Uno R3 also on W7 x64 and the drivers had no issues.

I encountered that error message before when I forgot to close a 3rd party serial monitor software before uploading a sketch.
The 3rd party program was still holding onto the COM port and disallowed the Arduino IDE from accessing it.

I'm a trial and error guy so maybe try disabling your antivirus or any firewall? Ive known some notorious firewalls that even stop me from running my c++ programs correctly.

@vishalapr
You're luckier than me lol. Like I said in my website, the issue is with the bad soldering. The PCB and the components are fine though.
Glad it worked out for you smiley
13  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Just built Arduino Severino (S3v3) and can't upload to it on: February 06, 2012, 09:46:36 am
Nice work!
Always wanted to build one myself but haven't got the right tools yet.

Glad your problem is solved and I should get my hands wet some day.

Thanks for sharing smiley

Hi everyone smiley
I've finally revived my Arduino Nano by checking the connections one by one referring to the official schematics. There was a tiny solder join that causes RESET to short to ground.
Please read it here for more info:

Thank you for your inputs. This is a great community and I look forward to learn more here. Thanks again smiley

@vishalapr
Oh boy I hope he's not a bad seller. Please report back whether it works or not. Thanks smiley

@jealin
Have you watched my video? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=7rZGrndTLjQ
Same symptoms? Where did you buy it?

I'm currently looking for answers too.

Thanks.
