Ok, false alarm. I'll be redoing the hard mod here in a day or two, as I have some extra trimpots. What happened is apparently I broke a 6Ω resistor while performing the mod. When i tried to boot with the card, I received beep codes saying no video card was installed, so i shut down and pulled the trimpots off. Then I realized I could fix it, so I did, but no trimpots anymore... The card is alive, but still on a pencil mod for now.
