    Check if any of the switches inside the floppy drive are stuck or broken off (those left and right at the front). The PC may not notice a disk change in such a case.

    Depends. The one offered by Asus may not have had any changes at all. That is, if it was just called a Windows 10 install disc or something.

    Those modified to fit the device are normally called...

    You can use any of the standard images by Microsoft. If it does not contain all the drivers for that notebook (which I'm sure the image from Asus did not either), it will download what's missing from...

    I don't see how driving an LCD module over parallel has anything to do with his question.

    For text, this might work, but you could just use the serial port and terminal emulation for that.

    Graphics? No way. Not only too slow (for a 320x200 VGA screen, you would not even get 3 fps at...

    A surface test is quite pointless for a flash drive (due to wear-leveling, transparent error-correction, and general abstraction by the flash controller) and also a good way to kill a flash drive...

    Small advice: fix the CMOS battery first before trying to find out what's wrong with the system. Many early systems simply act weird if the CMOS battery is flat, which can result in all sorts of...

    If you were in an urgent to sell stuff in order to pay bills, you'll most likely offer it for a very low price so that it sells fast, because you gain nothing if no one buys because of a too-high...

    Why? Because they talk about these old hardware and have a large audience? I agree that probably for a short time after they release a new video prices on that item go up - but not in the long run....

    You can not pull a bid back if an auction ends in 12 hours or less. So while your story might be true, "a few hours before the auction was to end" is clearly exaggerated. But yeah, that sucks if you...

    That's odd. At least eBay Germany does that differently. In such cases, the asking price is crossed out and it says "offer accepted" next to it. It does not show the actual offer, however.

    I archive sealed vintage media and would love to have one of each type. But I guess shipping costs would kill it.

    Buy-it-now prices have no meaning. Filter for sold items instead. Also tell that anyone who refers to ebay prices. Just *listing* e.g. a C64 for $2000 doesn't make it worth that much.

    Nice to hear. One of my retro systems is a 200 MHz Pentium system as well and I'm loving it. :)

    Most likely just a display anomaly since the BIOS lacks an entry for that CPU. If you set it to 66 x 3.0, it will run at 200 MHz, as the multiplier pins are a direct connection to the socket 7 and...

    I use HFVExplorer and WinImage. With HFVExplorer you can copy stuff into a blank Mac disk image and then write it to disk using WinImage.

    Probably pre-Pentium II era, as no USB port would not be an issue otherwise.

    btw, if that "new USB printer" is dumb (e.g. GDI - all work done by the driver, not the printer), there's no way to...

    If it's just for testing USB converters, I'd get a Classic instead. These are cheap and can even boot System 6 from ROM. Also, they come with a FDHD disk drive by default, so getting software onto it...

    I've never seen a 1541 with a bad belt, so don't care too much about it.


    And it is. It's a C64 minus the SID, the VIC-II, and less RAM. The fact that it is a computer is actually used by some...

    Wrong. Artisoft for example made LANtastic cards using DB-9 serial connections with 2 mb/s. I even own one of these and you can find them on ebay (e.g. https://www.ebay.de/itm/164160304838 - ignore...

    And a bulk-eraser, too, hopefully, as it won't help you much otherwise if you still want to use a 1.2 mb drive to write to them.
