    WTB/T 10base2 ethernet equipment

    After spending over 2 months trying to get my retro machines connected to my file server via 10baseT, and running into every possible issue, I've decided that I'm going to set up a 10base2 network.

    That's not an IDE interface, it's a Panasonic interface. Is your optical drive IDE? If so, that's why it's not working.

    The sound card that you were using that had the IDE channel on it, what card was it?

    You most likely need to install drivers for it before the optical drive will be recognized.

    Do you have an ISA IDE controller?

    Try setting the bios to use the external controller, and use that for the hard disk and optical drive.

    Then use the ide channel on the sound card for the CD drive.

    Use the sound card IDE channel for the CD drive

    Use the onboard IDE channel for the hard drive.

    Do you have a sound card with an IDE port on it?

    Some motherboards have bizzare issues with CD-ROM drives. My Compaq Prolinea 4/66 has problems with CD drives, as does my Packard Bell Legend 300SX

    Are the jumpers set right? The CD drive is slave, and the hard drive is master?

    Make sure the cable orientation is correct. (Done this before too many times)

    15" and smaller VGA CRT monitors

    My 19" Dell Trinitron monitor is starting to fail, as the colors freak out if the video cable, which is hardwired, is not in the absolute perfect position.

    I'm interested in any 15" and smaller...

    Any update for this?

    When all the caps are desoldered, clean the board off with isopropyl alcohol to remove any electrolytic fluid that may have leaked from failing capacitors.

    Electrolytic capacitors can fail short as well, usually caused by short but extreme power surges.

    I have a biostar board with caps that look fine, but have completely failed short around the CPU.

    Wait... You tried powering it up with missing capacitors?

    No wonder it doesn't work right. They're needed to complete some circuits.

    It's possible for capacitors on the inverter board of the screen to fail.

    Depends on the multimeter you have.

    They're not electrolytic capacitors, they're SMD tantalum capacitors, which when they fail, fail short.

    Have you tried powering up the board with nothing...
