    Really? Cool! Which resistor is it? A picture would really help.

    I love my 5155, but I really wish they had made the internal monitor a true-CGA. Composite creates weird artifacts on certain colors.

    But, once you get past that, it’s a fabulous machine. Also,...

    Haha, exactly!

    And yes, I love fixing this stuff.

    If I went, I would NOT bring a U-Haul truck. I’d bring an SUV, and whatever wouldn’t fit in the back of that wouldn’t go. That’s the best way I could think of to force myself not to get too much. Not...

    I watched LGR’s video of this place. Seeing the NOS Compaq/IBM stuff, stacks of first-gen Compaq Deskpros, a room full of vintage laptops, it was INSANE! If I went there, I would have to absolutely...

    Yikes, that doesn’t sound good. Almost sounds like it could be a head crash.

    Having a quick peek inside won’t hurt anything. These old drives aren’t very sensitive to dust.

    You’ve got yourself a great little machine there. Osborne 1s are awesome. Does it have the double-density upgrade installed?

    Also, I’d like to see some of the date codes on the chips inside of...

    Cool! I’ll look into that. It also appears there is a riser being made that would let me use a standard ISA RAM expansion, so I’ll look into that as well.

    Still very interested in this DMA memory...

    Sweet! Thank you for that link! I didn’t realize it would still work without the DMA; thanks for clarifying that for me.

    Wow, this is really cool! I’ve got an EX that needs more memory, and am very interested in this. I wonder what the reason of not building a DMA controller into the machine was?

    More memory on a 1000EX?

    I’ve got this wonderful little 1000EX that I found at Goodwill a few years back, but it really needs more memory.

    It’s got the stock 256KB, but I’d really like to have at least 512. Is there a way...

    Awesome. I’ll see if I can get some internal shots of mine later on.....

    Since someone bumped this fairly recently, I figured I’d add to it.

    The III was NOT the third model; it is the fourth (or fifth if you count the plus as a separate model, but since it’s still...

    Hah!

    Cool! Does that one have a 130W XT PSU or just a standard 63.5W?

    With all this talk about early 5150s, how about the newest one anybody has ever come across? I’ve got one that was made in 1986 which has a 130W XT PSU.

    I’d also like to see very early production...

    DAMN! That’s absolutely incredible. Never seen a small, yellow label like that on a black PSU. Must be a feature of the very earliest ones.

    Since (according to your signature) you have several...

    Good grief! You’ve got that many 5161s?!


    Yes, the expansion unit will work in an IBM XT, Portable PC, and even clones.


    There is a little bit of bottlenecking with cards in the 5161. It’s...

    I’ve got three revision B 5150s, but I want an A so bad! Definitely need to find me one. It wouldn’t have to be a super early one; any revision A would do.
  20. Very nice! I may have to try this sometime.

    I’m pretty sure I did, but it was about three or four years ago, so I may have been stupid and just blasted it all on at once. I have since restored several antique electric fans, and gained much...

    Shocked to here about these issues. SLTs are pretty much bullet-proof from my experience (both the 286 and the 386s/20). Never had a single motherboard or internal PSU-related issue out of any of...

    Very cool mouse!


    I also picked up another pretty cool accessory for it:
