I visit my local Thrift store a few times a month, or more. This time I was in for a surprise. I saw her as soon as I walked in and fixed my eyes over to the Electronics section. Now I find myself limited on any documentation for this rare find. Dip Switch settings, upgrades or anything else that might help me bring her back to life. See it on YouTube here:

It's a standard bigtower chassis from beginning of the 90's with large formfactor power supply, I had three of this kind at that time, one still there as it was already ATX formfactor. The ISA backplane inside is a bit special, but also not unusual. There were even more compact systems just having an ISA backplane and the CPU, memory and keyboard connector on a ISA card, for example Olivetti M290 286 class PC.

I have two, but I think I threw out both of the motherboards.
