    Nailed it. When all else has been ruled out whatever is left, however unlikely, must be the culprit. Even though the error code indicated a problem with bank 1, I took a chance and removed bank 0,...

    I'm going through a few PC and XT motherboards here. One of the 16K-64K PC boards is showing error code '0401 201' followed by 'Parity Error 1'. Occasionally it displays '0400 201'. I've replaced...

    Here is the Concept in portrait mode using the Extron scan converter. Looks better than the OEM monitor, IMHO. I need to tie RGB together for a white foreground, but this is plenty usable.

    I never found the startup latency to be objectionable, but perhaps MM CP/M is an outlier. I'll give it a try here. The nzblitz approach that fritzeflink documents sounds like a good workaround as...
