    I don't see how that would be better, since the forum would be storing all of the full-size pictures anyway (unless you had an off-forum archival storage site in mind).

    Starting to sound like an issue with the hard drive. Let the system warm up 10 minutes, then hit the red reset button on the front, then boot from a disk, then try to DIR C: and let it sit for 120...

    Was this a patched version of Quake II? Original quake required a Pentium for an instruction that escapes me (probably RDTSC) so I'm curious how it's running without support for that instruction.

    Fascinating stuff. It reads like it's trying to teach PCjrs to people who would actively resist trying to learn about PCjrs.

    Counterpoint: If seeing the date codes or legends on the chips were important, I would have taken closer pictures anyway (and did, when a forum member needed that info). You don't document boards...

    Is that still the case? I can't upload with the Insert Image icon (there's no ok/submit button on the dialog I see), I have to use Manage Attachments, which rejects anything over 256K.

    There was already a thread where larger images were lobbied for, and approved. The forum supports images up to 1280x width and up to 256KB in size. That's usually enough; here's a sample I just now...

    704K.COM just tests to see if there is memory at A000; if there, it adjusts the BDA and then warm reboots. So, what happens on various DOSes? On my 5160 with 64K at A000, and an empty CONFIG.SYS...

    It's not a BIOS scan issue because the BIOS stops at 640k on the system I'm testing. The use of the extra memory is changing the BDA value and soft-rebooting. IBM PC DOS 7 just hangs when I do...

    Some DOS versions won't let this work even if it's valid. I did the same thing (added 64K to A000 in my 5160) but IBM PC DOS 2000 refuses to work (I can't remember if it hangs on the reboot, or if...

    Then literally any PC you can find for cheap with both 5.25" and 3.5" drives will work. You can use a CompactFlash card with a CF-to-IDE adapter if the system you find has no hard drive. You can...

    That depends entirely on what you're trying to achieve.

    In general, it is not difficult to code for DOS-era PCs defensively. It just takes more time.

    Correct, and there's a patch for it.

    16MB? That's somehow smaller than the typical disk of the time (20MB). Surely you've got something else to test with?
