Hi all!

I'm have Macintosh IIx computer (system case) but he don't have power adapter inside. In motherboard we have 14 pin power connector, anybody know what voltage i must connect to each contact? And this Mac don't have classic macintosh video. Some "miroGRAPH PRISMA v2.1d 2/88 miro datensysteme" videocard stay in computer. Video connector like CGA/EGA. Anybody know her pinouts? And what type of monitors she want?

That may very well be a monochrome video card. Probably to drive a fixed scan monochrome monitor. It might be easier to find another video card - any standard Nubus video card will work.

Another thing about the Mac II series - there are two batteries on the logic board. If one or both are dead, the machine will NOT power on. A lot of people blame the power supplies when this happens.
