    Since everyone wants pictures of my aforementioned 5150, I'll see what I can do. Bust out my Canon 100mm f2.8L (that I'm actually looking at, to the left of my LCD) and get some REALLY DETAILED...

    LOL, because yes, this computer with the low serial came from Computer Reset. I already had a 16-64KB 5150 and a bunch of other stuff. In fact, Computer Reset brought me back to my childhood (and my...

    I only got it with the bottom part of the case, PSU and the motherboard. Nothing else. One of the caps on the bottom left under the first memory bank is cracked at the bottom. Of course, I didn't...

    It was at a computer business liquidation. I got it with just the case, PSU and system board. I don't think it had a top paired with it, though I'll have to look for it again. And I too am shocked I...

    I didn't think about it not working in an early Model A with the first ROM revision, but being that this option probably didn't exist then, also makes sense. I didn't realize the extender card had...

    IBM 5161 Expansion Unit compatibility

    Had a few questions on the 5161 (since I now have almost half a dozen of 'em)...

    1. Is it compatible with the XT (5160)?

    2. Since some of the original expansion units came with hard drives, if...

    That makes sense, and it is IBM. Good luck getting a lot out of them as it is.

    I'm kinda wondering if I have everyone beat on serial numbers. Still wish we actually had a serial number registry... Mine is 0100485.

    I've seen those before. I tried to be slick and picked up a small supply of DS12887 for some PS/2s and other systems. Semi-NOS (2013 IIRC).

    How much are your replacements, glitch?

    Sorry for resurrecting an old thread...

    Found this after doing a google search. So per minuszerodegrees.net, I definitely have an early Model A 5150. 2 holes in the back for a cover (which didn't...

    Not that it matters, since the OP already got his system fixed and posted up on eBay, but I just acquired a 755CD last weekend for beyond cheap (maybe 5 bucks? it was part of a lot of other vintage...

    It's odd, because he approached me trying to buy mine, claiming he wanted to play his childhood CD-ROM games, and next thing I know, he has a 755CD on eBay. Kinda odd, wanting one of these to...

    Thank you Stone. Next is the conundrum of running it. The machine only has 2 5.25" floppies (probably high density). I have 2 of these and neither look like they've ever been used before, with a cut...

    If I want to make an EPROM image, would I just read the image in an EPROM programmer, or is there another way to do it? I haven't checked my system to see what version BIOS I have (5170), but it is a...
