    I'm confused, where is the mouse port on the original 520ST then? The models with built in floppy drives moved the port under the keyboard.

    I've seen those adapters but none of them look like they'd work with the models that have the mouse ports under the keyboard instead of on the sides?

    Wanted: Atari STE/STF/STFM

    Managed to get my hands on an Atari SC1224 monitor but sadly no computer came with it so I'm looking for an Atari ST. Both 520 and 1040 models are fine with me but I want one with the built in floppy...
  9. Question about Atari ST mouse/joystick ports

    I'm in the market for an Atari ST but the overwhelming majority of the ones for sale don't come with a mouse. Does the ST use some kind of ST-specific mouse protocol or is it shared with say, the...

    It turned out I was doing my math wrong! There's 4MB onboard so 4MB onboard plus 12MB worth of SIMMs = 16MB.

    Thanks for the link! I was just finding the text file.

    I managed to get my hands on a DX-2 66 myself and get the system booted today, despite 3 RAM sticks it states there's 16MB of RAM (that must mean a RAM stick isn't being recognized because there's no...

    There's 3 sticks in the 3 RAM slots, two identical GoldStar branded sticks of unknown capacity and then a single 4MB stick. I'd imagine the GoldStar sticks are probably 8MB each because they're...
  13. Compaq Prolinea 4/50: Mystery connector

    I recently managed to obtain a Compaq Prolinea 4/50 system, sadly missing its CPU thanks to one of those gold scrapper types. I noticed a strange expansion slot next to the CPU socket.

    Yeah, I have a 720k drive in my SX (factory Tandy upgrade!) so I'd have to do that.
  15. Running newer DOS versions on Tandy 1000SX?

    I read in this guide here that any version of DOS higher than 3.20 is not supported on the Tandy 1000SX because it is "unstable", as well as issues with formatting disks:

    I don't know, mine doesn't seem to have a battery as far as I'm aware. It also doesn't have a hard disk.

    Another question I almost forgot about: can the CoCo 2 be upgraded to the Hitachi 6309 or is it only the CoCo 3 that can use that upgrade?

    Here's a picture, it's kinda hard to tell though that the "clamp" is all the way down. But it is and it won't pop back up. I've fixed a 3.5" drive with this problem before but not a 5.25" drive.
