    Definitely. Wish I could find the Reply board for the Model 80!

    Well, that didn’t fix it, and I tried some other things that didn’t help either. No more early Toshiba Laptops for me until someone figures out what’s up with them. I’ll stick with the gas plasma...

    Well, I found where someone fixed theirs with similar symptoms to mine by replacing a particular mosfet, so I have ordered a replacement and we’ll see what happens...

    Has anyone ever figured out what’s up with these? I just got one of these, recapped it, and it’s still just giving me the blinking “DC-in” light. This is the THIRD vintage Toshiba laptop I have...

    It won’t open any further than that? Very odd. You have all of the tabs undone, so it should come off. I’d suggest shining a flashlight in there and see if you can spot any that might be holding it.

    "New" camcorder

    I have decided to move to a more modern format for videos, known as "VHS." No more of this "SD card" crap.


    All kidding aside, I had an idea a few months ago to start using a VHS camcorder for...

    Toshiba T3100e

    Figured I'd share my latest acquisition, a Toshiba T3100e, which I have been after for quite a long time.

    It doesn’t have anything to do with the drivers, it has to do with the bios and the type of display it sees. Even if you could adjust it, it wouldn’t really do much in the way of making the screen...

    You’re welcome! My Dell Inspiron 8000 series laptops, and my Dell Precision M50 have a native resolution of 1600 x 1200, and it looks amazing. 1400 x 1050 is really good too.

    Yours probably has the 1400 x 1050 screen then, as that was an option for the E500, and I’ve never seen an LCD that can go above its native resolution.

    Those controls are there for machines equipped with a passive-matrix display. They are essentially disabled on machines with active-matrix displays, as they aren’t really necessary. It was just...

    I’m sorry to hear that! Glad you’re okay though! I’ve never been bit by one and hope I never do. Absolutely hate the damn things.

    I also just realized that I wrote “byte” instead of “bite?” Why...

    Thatís the stuff nightmares are made of! The thought of finding a nest of even non-venomous spiders is a computer terrifies me, but brown recluses? That would be absolute Hell. I think I wouldíve...

    I think it’s fine personally. The buttons do have a fairly long travel before they “click,” but it doesn’t really bother me, and I’ve found that most early mice (my Microsoft gray-eyed mouse, for...

    That's pretty badass. Always liked the IBM POS machines. Some of the stainless-steel-cased Panasonic ones are pretty neat too. I had a newer Fujitsu POS for a while, but I didn't end up keeping it,...

    Hmm.... the listing seems to have vanished.


    Anyway, I don't think I'd be "afraid" to use it if I had it and was going to keep it (which I wouldn't). It's just as likely to break sitting as it...

    I think the *majority* of us active members on here have that goal. I think *most* of us are here because we like vintage computers, not because we like to make USB keyboards out of old switches. Is...

    Who the hell are you to try and tell people what they do and don’t care about?

    I absolutely care about what happens to these long-out-of-production keyboards.

    I think lots of people here...
