    Being overwhelmed is a terrible feeling. I'm glad you seem to have things under control. Looks like you have some interesting stuff on those blue shelves.

    I think I'm going to have to set a rule...

    I've got one of these cards somewhere, never tried to use it. They were marketed as a cheap low end product with huge capacity for the time. One place where they would have made sense is in a TV...

    I've got an internal TEAC 5.25" tape backup unit somewhere that uses tapes that are basically cassette tapes. IIRC they are slightly different in some way to regular tapes. People have modified the...

    If you want to have private conversations you could just play loud music, like they did in the Godfather.

    There is a scheme where you use negative sound to play back sound waves that are the...
  6. Does anyone have a BIOS for a SIS 460 (85C460) 486 based motherboard?

    I've got this 85C460 based VL-BUS motherboard that I'm not getting a clock signal at the ISA bus. I've traced it to the chipset, and there is nothing there either. There are two clock signals going...

    Ok, well I've been getting the RTC oscillator confused with the CPU/BUS oscillator, so this is all irrelevant anyway. Turns out that pin 24 (VDD) is connected to a bunch of resistors and whatnot and...

    When I saw it offered I though of your benchmark software. Good card to get a baseline.

    As a side note, are benchmark submissions supposed to be identifiable computers (Like Compaq 386s), or...

    If you look at the duct above, there are 3 rivets holding on a loop of plastic. This gets squished upwards by the DIMMs, forcing the air between them. I have run a supermicro board in a cheap Antec...

    AFAIK the BIOS is Intel, which is based on a modified AMI BIOS. Intel was making it's own BIOS in the '90s. Even then their POST codes strayed way off from AMI. Beep codes I'm not so sure about.

    I chose both, though vertical is often easier. I plan at some point to have all the XT, AT and AT clones, horizontally mounted in a custom rack with pull-out shelves and a KVM. But that's been on the...

    Thanks Chuck, but shipping to the UK kills it. There are 100s on eBay UK right now going for peanuts. I used a NetVoyager a few months back to make a pFsense router and it worked out very well. I...

    I think 'was an an early model A' is more accurate. To the OP, good luck with it, but, well, that thing is horrendous. Was it stored outside?

    I may be mis-remembering but I was under the impression the 4-way 450GX has two FSB, and the 6-way was a hack of the 450GX. I know it supported two independent PCI buses, and two memory controllers. ...

    It could be power-state. That's why i suggested forcing it on. Another less brutal way is to hold down the power button for 10s, might do something. I'm not sure you can set the BIOS to do what it is...

  18. Acer Labs M5818 A1 24-pin chip datasheet. RTC on a 486

    I've got this 486 board with this chip on it, that has an oscillator heading to it via another chip. AFAIK it is a RTC, but I can't find a datasheet for it anywhere. Pin 24 isn't connected to 5V, and...

    It might, but get one that has LEDs for voltages too. I've found it very useful today with a frustrating 486. I would recommend getting one anyway, but you will need to find the document that...
