  1. A mouse that causes pcs to fail booting?!?

    So recently I bought a pair of Packard Bell branded mice off an auction site. I got them in, tested one. It worked. Didn't think anything else about it. Yesterday I was working on a Packard Bell...

    Sorry for the long delay. I have been very busy with life. I have completely replaced all of the 22 caps on the board. Machine still does not function. I have to wonder if I used the wrong caps,...

    Finally got the caps in today. Took my time. I have changed all but 7 of them. The 7 left are a bit difficult for me to get to at the moment. However, the issue persists. When it sits long...

    I found a really tiny 486 from Dell that is LPX, looks like 3 ISA slots, but looks to be about 2.5 times the width of a 3.5 inch floppy drive on the width of the case, and depth would be long enough...

    That's a terrible shame about the 486 getting smashed. I hope you have good luck getting another small one. The only slightly smallish machine I have here is a Pentium 200MMX machine from the...

    Oh yeah, having the cache enabled makes the machine run exactly as you would expect a 486DX-33 to run. Not super fast, but faster than it was. But yes, Packard Bell are strange machines. Which...
  7. Restoring the system files with the Cache enabled...

    Restoring the system files with the Cache enabled fixed the weird issue it was having. Everything is working now. Thank you for the suggestions and the help.

    Thank you for that Suggestion T-R-A. I happened to just try that. It did not work. It's so strange. It's currently in the process of restoring the factory settings as suggested by Stone. I am...

    If I have to do a reinstall, I can try to restore the hard drive contents from the System Restore CD. It has a lot of things added for the machine to Windows, and I am not sure if I can restore all...
  10. Unusual Issue with a 486 based machine

    Hello everyone,

    I apologize for coming back with more questions, but I have something strange going on, and I thought someone here might know what is wrong so I can correct it. I have a...
  11. Thank you for the information. I really wish I...

    Thank you for the information. I really wish I had taken electronic engineering and soldering classes when I was in college, but since they weren't needed for my degree, I stuck to the courses I...

    I found these, they are low impedance, will they work? - https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/647-UPS1E220MDD1TA
    Also, from what I am being told here and a couple of other places, even these Maxim...

    The DS12887+ and A+ chips I was looking at were on Mouser.com. I was buying them new I thought. Are they old stock as well? Hmm. I did not know that. The only difference between the Nichicon and...

    Okay.. I am getting ready to put in an order for some parts from Mouser, and I have come across suggestions for Caps from several places, and I am uncertain of which type to get. They have Nichicon...

    I found a ruler. I took some measurements. Are these numbers possible, or am I missing something? the Caps appear to be 5mm diameter by 15mm tall? The space between the pins on the back of the...
  16. I have been looking for the past couple of days...

    I have been looking for the past couple of days for my ruler but my daughter has absconded with it. :D But these are tall and very thin, so I would have guess that they are the 5x10 instead of the...
  17. Thank you for the link Agent Orange. I have been...

    Thank you for the link Agent Orange. I have been meaning to get a container of that freeze spray. The next step to try at this point, will be to replace the 20-something odd caps on the board. ...

    I am not confident that the video is okay. However, considering that the symptoms and issues continue regardless of whether I use on board or ISA based video I would have to guess, that even if the...

    The cost on the system was negligible at about 30 bucks plus about the same amount for shipping. Recapping as long as they aren't surface mount is fine. I can do that no problem. Honestly, I don't...
  20. Right. :D But based on what I am seeing on the...

    Right. :D But based on what I am seeing on the screen, it would be indicative of something not being right voltage wise. I noticed today, if I looked carefully at the screen while it was running,...

    I don't think it's the PSU. I just pulled a working AT PSU that runs a Pentium 233MMX machine and plugged it into the board. After several minutes, the machine locks up. Upon reboot, the machine...

    I'm pretty certain that the power supply for the 386 can be fixed, I just don't know if I can do it. My skills with soldering and de-soldering are very basic. I want to improve them, and I have...
  23. I didn't think about the power supply, but it was...

    I didn't think about the power supply, but it was tested a bit. After I cleaned the motherboard, and was in the process of cleaning the case, I had the motherboard in here on my desk with a...

    I disabled the on-board memory, put in a FPM module I had that was 8MB, and booted the system. I loaded a boot disk, as there is no Hard drive in the machine. After 4 minutes, the machine locks up....

    I have troubleshooted this pc to the end of my abilities. I wondered if part of the issue was something wrong with the on-board graphics chip. So I disabled it and used an ISA card I had. Issue...
