    If you can get past not having sound (on an MCA PS/2), they are amazing. The lack of sound doesn't bother me. The PC speaker sound on Wolfenstein 3-D is good enough for me. But, if you are the type...

    Capacitors! There is an SMD capacitor on the inverter board that leaks and causes these issues. Clean the inverter, replace the cap, and I bet your backlight will return to normal.

    The Inboard 386/PC is a wonderful accelerator. I’ve got one in one of my 5150s, and I will never part with it :)

    Yes, I don’t mind using solid state either if I need to. For example, my PS/2 model 25 had no molex, so adding a drive can be tricky.

    Sellers do tend to reach for the stars on these drives, but if...

    Oh yes, we have all had our share of floppy disk nightmares. It would be great if someone would create some brand-new diskettes. I suspect someone will once the supply gets low enough. Stuff like...

    I found an IBM-branded Miniscribe 2012 MFM hard drive for cheap!

    Always wanted one of these. To my amazement, it low-level formatted just fine, and doesn't have any bad...

    Well, I tried to replace one of the chips on the board, and now the light just “blips” on the board. Put the original chip back, and the same thing still happens. Don’t know what happened. I have...

    Having some issues with the internal PSU on the Toshiba T1200 I got recently.


    When I first got it, I noticed all of the caps were leaking, and the entire PCB was covered in electrolyte, so I...

    None taken. I need to put Geos on something and see what it’s like.

    Can’t go wrong with the good old Model 30. I’ve got two and I love them.

    Geos looks neat, but I will say I love early versions of Windows. I have an early version of Windows on pretty much all of...

    First of all, congratulations on an early-model 5150 with the black PSU! Also never seen a Hercules card with a wide, black backplate for an early 5150.

    Keep in mind that games have to be...

    I have a particular passion for hard disk and storage history, so it’s a very special item to me.

    As you can see in the image, there are quite a few platters with it. They are 5.25” in size.

    Thanks for the reply. So this thing was for technicians to carry around platters to repair hard drives with? Pretty damn cool.

    That’s pretty neat. Looks like one of those “build-your-own luggable” systems, that can take a standard AT motherboard. You would have been able to purchase these empty portable cases at one point...

    DisCaddy - info wanted

    I found this at Goodwill years ago, and have never really been 100% sure what it is:

    It appears to be a storage container for loose hard drive platters? But why and for what...

    On WD controllers, when the model number ends with an “X”, I’ve usually found that means it’s an RLL controller.

    Yes, the Plus and Original have the same PSU. Also keep in mind that the IBM 5155 was never offered with a hard drive, but its PSU is around 104 watts I believe.
