    I decided to skip out on the whole XTIDE thing, since trying to figure out where the address of the network card's IC socket is is too-far-advanced for my knowledge. I'll consider using the knowledge...
  2. A Computer Finally Working, Now to Expand Its Capabilities... (XTIDE BIOS)

    Whew. I finally did it. I got a working motherboard (Chaintech 6BTM) that I was able to upgrade first time. I burnt out 3 Flash chips total (and burned my left-hand finger in the process) because I...

    Yeah, that's normal for old LCD computers like the Powerbook. These are computers with screens that don't change their images quickly.

    Now here's another question. Does this damage the motherboard in any way?
  5. Well, the motherboard is a Chaintech 6BTM, the...

    Well, the motherboard is a Chaintech 6BTM, the BIOS ROM was an MX28F2000PPC-12C4, and the programmer is a MiniPro TL866CS.

    I know I put the chip in the correct way in the programmer, because the...
  6. Trouble with BIOS IC - New Motherboard, Damage to BIOS Chip from Putting It In Wrong?

    I bit the bullet and bought a new motherboard. It was working last night. (And I've preserved the previous BIOS)

    This time, I've burned through not one, but TWO Flash memory chips!

    I don't know...

    (At least I can recognize the Stuntmaster "VR" Headset... :-P)

    That's the adapter that I bought. My IC programmer (TL866CS) does have settings for the Macronix chip, but it still does not read.
  9. Trouble with BIOS IC - Unusual Flash Chip

    I don't know if this is appropriate for this subforum, but I'm trying to build an MS-DOS/Win98SE gaming rig.

    Last year, I bought a motherboard (A Gigabyte GA-868LX), hoping to make the best gaming...

    When I used my 26-pin ribbon cable (i.e. not a flat-flex) adapter in my Toshiba T3200SXC, I had the same problem. I forget which two pins on the drive/adapter side have to be grounded with jumper...

    Is the floppy drive connector on the motherboard a pin header, or a flat-flex cable?

    If it's a pin header, then you have a good chance of a simple replacement. All a 26-pin drive really is is just...

    I've had good results with plastic cement (Oatey-brand) or acetone. They both soften the plastic just enough to make a good bond.
  14. Does the system scan rate that mean any of the...

    Does the system scan rate that mean any of the clocks on the display chip?
  15. Compatible Screens for Toshiba T3200SXC?

    For now, I've decided to abandon the restoration of the screen for my Toshiba T3200SXC in favor of using a more-modern approach; plus if the LCD type is the same as the T6400SXC, it might hurt my...

    Worst Computer i've ever encountered?

    Toshiba T6400SXC.

    The display hurts my eyes after a while, the memory is non-standard, the motherboard is very wasteful on space, the display is too small...

    Did you hear a motor running? If not, open the drive up and see if any of the capacitors (cylindrical-shaped, or yellow-round-candy-shaped components) have burst or have char marks.

    I have a Toshiba T6400SXC, and it is the strangest laptop computer I have ever come across.

    Poll: Modification of Rare Computers Question

    To restore a rare computer to full functionality, do you think it hurts the value to irreversibly modify the system?

    I'm asking because I have a very rare Toshiba T6400SXC without a working floppy...

    Capacitors are difficult to diagnose sometimes. Their failure may not be obvious unless you de-solder them. (I found one leaking in my Toshiba T3200SXC's power supply that looked fine until I took it...

    Do you have any information about the hard disk controller? That seems to be a custom Compaq-fabricated chip that doesn't exist anywhere else.
