    I'll have to crack open my z-148. I don't recall seeing that. On the other hand, it's been a long time since I opened it up.

    I really enjoyed your YouTube video on restoring that computer.

    Silly question: is it better to clip that sucker, or desolder it? I don't have a soldering gun these days. Come to think of it, I might not even have wire cutters... :(

    I just now checked the site (https://monotech.fwscart.com/Main_Products/cat6083515_4522226.aspx) and it seems to be working fine.

    Thanks for the link.
