    Yes, but Win 3.1 definitely fits the "vintage" category. Probably best moved to "Vintage Computer Software".

    Could be that there's just enough short-wave UV-B there to do some work. Direct bright sunlight is supposed to take about a week, but I've never tried it.

    Or you could wait 200 years and the...

    This may have something to do with me using a TP-Link N300 WiFi repeater as a wireless-to-ethernet bridge.

    I'll pull the TP-Link box and run a cable straight to the router tonight and report back...

    It's a Cipher 525 drive. Bit of a pig on power, but otherwise pretty reliable for the time.

    As a related note: A lot of Chinese "Corn" LED lamps are being sold as UV-C units. They're not. Big Clive had a post on YT not long ago where he tests UV LED lamps.

    "LED UV lamps" may be the source of your problem. UV EPROMs generally require exposure of 254 nm or thereabouts. Longer wavelengths won't do it, at any amount of time.

    That's what's reported by DHCP. Is there a way to sniff out the conversation to verify? FWIW, WinXP and Ubuntu don't have a problem with it.

    Finally got around to installing the Realtek PCI card with packet driver in a P3 Win98SE box (not running the GUI, just DOS). The NIC is connected to a wireless adapter. (FWIW, I can't run the...

    ...I didn't see where the OP said he was using a USB keyboard, but he did mention PS/2.

    In any case, if he could install MSDOS 6.22, legacy keyboard support had to have been working, regardless.

    Whut? Windows 3.1 dates from 1992, long after the PS/2's introduction in 1987. Besides, The PS/2 keyboard protocol is exactly the same as the PC/AT protocol.

    Look to the peripherals and their...

    One hint are the TI ZA1250 "piggyback" 128Kx1 DRAM chips. If you need to replace them, they can be a bit hard to find--but I've seen ebay sellers offering pulls.

    There's still a pretty fair amount of CP/M embedded in industrial PLCs. The old iron lasts and lasts.

    Yeah, 5.25" drives in 1973 didn't exist. Most of my Wang WP samples are 8" hard-sectored floppies.

    That's the idea--but before you apply power, make sure it's dry (i.e. no water trapped under components or in sockets).

    Some folks use the dishwasher (no detergent, just water), but you probably...

    Isn't that a water-base (i.e. Latex) paint meant for walls and wood? I don't know how well that will work on metal.

    Good luck.

    Wash the crud off. dry thoroughly--start with plain water. The IDE drive controller's nothing special, but you could try cleaning that and see if it's salvageable.

    For me, pre-1975, the only bit of Wang gear was the LOCI-2 that the psychology department owned. After that, nothing. So I was oblivious to the 2200.

    Was the 2200 any more "personal" than the HP 9830A/9831 with its BASIC in ROM?

    I doubt that either was "personal" in a budgetary sense and I doubt that either had a significant effect on PC...
