    That's a standard AT power connector. If it's not keyed, connect it so that the black ground wires of P8 and P9 meet in the middle of the connector.

    Just add a USB 2.0 PCI card. I never got any USB 1.0 controller to work in Win9x, even with the drivers correctly installed.

    You can't stop it, unless you find a way to freeze time. It's like trying to stop fruits from rot. You can slow it down, but never stop it from happening.

    The stuff I retrobrighted in the past has...

    UV light is not the problem; this is just still a very common misbelief. If you put a piece of yellowed plastic in the sun outside, it's the UV light that actually removes the yellowing. And inside...

    Set it up to boot from ROM and forget about the hard disk. Most games you can run on it will fit a single floppy disk anyway. :)

    Than you have some other issue here. There is no way that a LLF will *not* remove these partitions.

    And you know for 100% that checkit really tests the hardware RTC and not just the time reported by the OS? The RTC gets its power from the battery all the time, no matter if the system is on or off....

    The RTC isn't really in use when an OS like DOS/Win9x is running. The OS is taking care of the time in that case. I have some systems with the same issue, because they have their 3.6V rechargeable...

    You certainly fried the CPU, and most likely damaged the VRM. Start by checking the voltages incl. those from the VRM. Also, a POST code card will most likely help finding out if there is any life...

    Forum description says: "Sell or Trade your vintage computer items here" - quite unambiguous to me.

    Also, we have extra threads for posting interesting links to stuff sold by other people.

    Correct my if I'm wrong, but isn't that section of the forum for posting own stuff for sale or trade?

    It says "HP [some number] DATA SYSTEM". Too bad the number is impossible to decipher on that photo.

    That's a generic SCSI DAT drive (either 1.3 GB with 2 GB compressed, or 2 GB with 4 GB compressed - I'm too lazy to search for specs), nothing special. Backup software for Win9x should find it...

    First, boot the system into DOS mode instead of using the command prompt from within Windows. Second, try to find out if the program is actually compatible with a CPU that fast. If the program was...

    His point was that an ordinary VGA monitor can not sync to the signal the Mac outputs in 512x384 mode, as it is below 31 kHz. The adapter won't change that - it only sets some ID pins so the Mac...

    No, this is why you had no success so far:


    How did you even come to think asking that much? You did start all your other auctions at $1, why is this one $5,000 BIN?

    Because Windows NT never allowed direct hardware access, which the LPT one however requires. So a driver for an LPT device must run in kernel mode as opposed to user mode and I think this was no...

    I assume your 286 mainboard has no color trimmer? CGA composite color relies on that. It may just not work with this mainboard.

    The card has 16 kb of video memory, so certainly CGA. I'd guess it can do MDA/Hercules as well and the dip switches are there to configure that and the type of the attached monitor. For the composite...

    The few I see there are too expensive with shipping added. For an equivalent of $40, I can already get a whole C64 mainboard minus SID+VIC and take the CPU from there.
