    It's probably a Chinese brushing scam. Chinese sellers acquire information about people in the US and send them random packages so they can make fake reviews about their products on their online...

    Owing to the nature of the "pizza box" style case used for several models, you can play musical chairs with logic boards and go all the way up to a 68040 machine. Early Quadra 605s used the exact...

    The original Macintosh LC with a 68020 didn't have a 68841/51, so it couldn't support virtual memory. The LC II with a 68030 did support virtual memory though because the 68030 integrated a 68851 MMU...

    I was never really a fan of the LC or the LC II because they were such compromised designs. Apple retired the 68020 with the original Mac II only to re-introduce it with the LC less than a year...

    The cheap small "brick" multimeters are available everywhere and are more or less junk. I've used several of them and they're super inaccurate and/or the dial stops working properly, so you have to...

    https://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/144401/HITACHI/HD63484CP98.html

    Looks like it supports up to 16 bit color and up to 4096x4096...

    Has your install of System 7.1 previously experienced any crashes from misbehaving applications like MacDraw? It only takes one system crash to cause file system corruption. The Hierarchical File...

    I have 16 MB on my board and while Gemstart can see that it has 16 MB, increasing the available memory with the slider instead uses the hard drive as virtual memory.

    The problem you're having with MacDraw is running a 24 bit program on a 32 bit CPU and OS.

    MacDraw is an ancient 24 bit program released with the original 1984 Macintosh. Most Macintosh computers...

    I'm guessing you have the TotalSystems Gemini Ultra upgrade board, at least that's what it sounds like. I have one of those boards too, and it's actually faster than an SE/30.

    The only problem is...

    If the motherboard can't properly determine the CPU speed at 200 MHz, it very likely doesn't support it.

    Many motherboard vendors in the 1990s often included bus speeds and multipliers that didn't...

    I have both a regular SE and a SE FDHD and they're both identical in terms of board placement. The only difference is the FDHD has different holes stamped in the metal plate between the logic board...

    You can't just replace the ROMs and floppy drive and it will work. You also need to replace the IWM floppy disk controller with a SWIM floppy disk controller to be able to read and write 1.44M disks....

    There's really not a lot in the realm of "specs", all Macintosh SE machines are the same, bar the RAM and storage options. They can come with 1, 2.5 or 4 MB of RAM and either one 800k floppy drive...

    If you don't want to go through the aggravation of making a new stake to replace the broken one, you can try super glue. As long as you don't go conan on the key, it should hold well enough.

    I'd say check for shorted components, like the C1/C3 capacitors which look to be tantalums. The next thing would be to check the 74 series logic chips. If none of those are bad, the most dreaded...

    With those ping times, it sounds like you had some sort of satellite internet like HughesNet.

    The "fastest" Netburst by clock speed was the Prescott-2M Pentium 4 672 at 3.8 GHz, and its Xeon equivalents. But the raw clock speed doesn't have the grunt to back it up. For Intel to ramp up clock...

    They've done it in bad faith, they're basically a scummy patent troll company.

    Windows 9x was not really designed for high LAN speeds, the OS is a bottleneck itself. But more importantly, so is the whole system. Slower CPUs will have a slower ethernet speed because network...

    RDRAM being paired with the Pentium 4 was a really terrible idea. Netburst was a weak architecture to start that required lots of low latency cache and low latency main memory to perform halfway...
