    Because this is a forum about retro-computing? You could also not bother at all and just run your stuff on Windows 10. If it runs on Vista/7, it will in 99.9% of all cases run on 10 as well. But that...

    Actually, there is something very important to note on my picture: That 5150 made for Germany is from 1985 and has a 230V PSU. 1985 was the first year in which Germany no longer used 220V but 230V,...

    If it is anything like the smaller LTE Lite, it has another battery somewhere for power-management. It will not turn one without that battery working.

    No. Have one from early 1985 made for Germany and it has the same 63 watt PSU as all others.

    Being case-sensitive and having upper/lower case letters are quite different things.

    I didn't say anything about an executable, I said "files". Yes, often these are just different sets of graphics files. Outrun seems to use one executable for all modes, but the versions floating...

    Actually, it's a common problem to only find cracked old games with Hercules and often also Tandy files removed. Most of these cracks date back from the time of BBS and were made as small as...

    Vista was only unstable in the beginning due to poor drivers. And as for being a resource hog, that's not relevant unless you want to use it on pre-2008 hardware.

    Vista was never that bad. It's just that the hardware back then wasn't powerful enough to run it. The difference between Windows 7 and Vista is very small. Vista generally asks for confirmation way...

    I think the Mac LC line was the first to have stereo sound.

    Anyway, my Performa 475 has exactly the same issue: output jack works fine, but the internal speaker stays silent.

    That's odd. The two Apple Design Keyboards I own had screws and were easy to disassemble. Guess you have a later revision then.

    The ribbon cable is unlikely to be the issue, as many more keys would not work if even a single contact is bad. You need to disassemble the keyboard itself and clean the film and rubber contacts....

    When used for a second display, you can use a regular PC graphics card as well. It must only have Mac-specific firmware when used as the primary card.

    "even at"? 70 Hz was very low and what you got with standard VGA. Flicker-free wasn't achieved until at least 85 Hz.

    I own a Megafile 30 for the Atari ST, which has an MFM hard disk inside. The manual tells you to let the drive warm up for 10 minutes before using it, otherwise it may malfunctioning. I guess that...

    Same here. No idea what people do with their keyboards to let them become that gross.

    Not knowing the full story, but if you don't do the hobby for yourself, you're probably better off stop doing it. A hobby isn't something you do for others.

    A tested, working GUS has quite a value. At least when speaking about eBay. I bought a PNP one last year for 50€, not on eBay...

    But this one is untested. If the GF1 chip is dead, it's not even...

    Not using Win98. My audio recording system is based on Linux and using an Asus Xonar card. SNR is 116 dB with that one, but not that it would matter for tapes or vinyl records. I'm using it mainly to...

    Even if it is IDE, it's NOT that easy. USB-to-IDE adapters only work in LBA mode, not with CHS. A 500 MB drive is unlikely to already support LBA, as it makes no sense for drives not larger than 504...

    The Live! has a SNR of 100 dB, just like the Audigy. That's already very good for a consumer card. The Audigy 2 even had 106 dB SNR, but no idea if they made Win98SE drivers for that.
