    Yeah, option one is my preference as well, though finding a complete MACH 20 may prove to be a royal PITA.

    That's right, I completely forgot that the AT doesn't work with an XT keyboard.

    Ehhhhh... That's not really my thing personally, though it is an interesting idea.
  3. IBM 5155 Portable Project: Looking for ideas and direction

    So a little over a year ago now I picked up an IBM Portable 5155 that I found on the side of the road of all places. Anyways, to keep a long story short, virtually everything aside from the case,...

    Low patience is exactly why I try and have multiple projects going at once :lol: If I have to wait for one to sit around and "bake" so to speak, I'll hop over to another. Thanks for the tip on...

    9585 Update!

    So after spraying the whole case and case plastics down with bleach and hosing them off with hot water, the case looked somewhat better and was definitely much "cleaner" sadly a lot...

    Same sentiment over here... Watching LGRs video (as well as the other guy's livestream back in May) was a pretty big mistake on my end as well, as now I know exactly what I'm missing out on. As an...

    All of the SIMM sockets and MCA slots were clean. I removed the supply, powered it on (fan runs) and probed the main supply pins as well as the drive connectors. There was effectively no power to the...
  8. Removing "Rodent Grime" and Corrosion from a PS/2 9585 Case

    So I have a PS/2 Model 85 that I picked up alongside one other 85 and two 95s a few months ago, however this one has been sitting in my garage since I picked it up as it previously had "tenants"....

    Seeing as how I'm waiting on parts to finish my 95A and the non-infested 85, I decided to at least start stripping down the rodent infested one and examining the damage. All I can really say right...

    Quick update on the 9585s:

    So after some probing with a multi-meter I have found that the power supply for the non-rodent infested 85 (which is a K/N 85 by the way!) is in fact faulty. Guess it's...

    Since the 9595 planar has additional I/O (the second serial and parallel port), the rear I/O opening on the 9595s are longer. You can stick a 9595 planar into an 8595 chassis, but you'd need to cut...

    I'm not sure why it's labeled as a 9595, but it isn't. It is definitely an 8595. Do you have any 486 complexes you can try?

    It sounds like your system doesn't have the original planar then (if it is in fact a 9595), as that coupled with the board's FRU means it's an 8595 planar. One more quick question; On your operator...

    Does it have one of each port (serial and parallel) on the rear or two of each? That way I know for certain what board type you have.

    Hey... I know you! I'm the fellow Redditor that explained what the CP codes you were getting meant. Sorry to hear you're still having trouble with it.

    So yeah, according to the second photo the...

    It's likely your board just has faulty capacitors and that you could find the bad ones with a multi-meter and replace them yourself (if you know how to solder anyways).

    If not though and if...

    Oh! Forgot to include the elusive 72-pin, 32Mb ECC SIMMs (P/N 92G7210, FRU 73G3136) in my list.

    I currently have five and just need three more to hit that much sought after goal of 256Mb!
  18. [Wanted] Various Parts, Odds and Ends for PS/2 Model 95 Systems

    I've been in the process of restoring various PS/2 Model 95s I picked up a few months ago (there's a post in the "Later PCs section if you're interested in that) and I'm finding myself short a few...

    It's the DAC960M. I realized that I had forgot to specify that in my configuration list for the 95A this morning and that it may be a little confusing to some. Oh well, can't edit it now. :lol:

    Hah, if only... I don't get why SSKs are so damn expensive.



    I was thinking something more along the lines of OS/2 2.1 with NetWare 4.1 ;)

    Well, three of the six do anyways. Two are still waiting for parts and the third shudders well, the third had "tenants" at one point as someone left a filler plate out of the machine...

    Hmmm. In that case I may just try a multi-OS install of PC-DOS and OS/2, as the OS/2 setup does give the option to install a boot manager.

    Currently I'm just trying to install 2.0, as it's all I could find. As for machine type, it's an 8590 with an "M" complex.
