    Yeah, my main goal here was to get a viable RAM expansion going for the EX/HX, since they're pretty limited without it.

    Everything else is just window dressing at this point, but I'm quite...

    The backlight isn't my biggest concern, to be honest. It's pretty readable without it, though a polarizer would be nice for playing games, since the pallet is inverted. CGA games are still playable,...

    You think that riser board might be a power supply for the backlight?

    Also, do you think you could probe out which pins on the connector go to the data bus for the memory chips? Without that...

    I ended up cobbling my own replacement battery together out of some generic Ni-Mh cells from Digi-Key. The onboard voltage regulator seems to take 7.2v from the battery just fine (I tried charging...

    Glad you were able to pick that up. My business has been shorthanded since this whole coronavirus thing started, and haven't had time to work on any of my hobby projects. :mad:

    I can understand doing that if the guts don't work, but I hate it when people ruin a perfectly good vintage machine.

    Are you using a CRT or an LCD as monitor? For the LCD I use, I always need to fiddle with the RF tuning to get the colour to display properly, but that could also just be result of the cheap cable I...

    Shadow RAM just copies the BIOS into RAM so it can be accessed quicker, so I doubt it.
    My money is on the BIOS just not looking for option/LAN boot ROMS. What's the make/model of the motherboard?

    Check the AMIBIOS settings to make sure it can support booting from external or 3rd party (ISA/VESA card) ROMs. I haven't used an AMIBIOS in years, so I don't remember exactly where the setting would...

    That's a studio/broadcast monitor, and DAYMN does it have some nice features! The thing must weigh a ton though :/
    I concur about using a CRT with vintage computers. For sure, it makes sense to get...

    Looks like Sony CCTV security monitor, or perhaps a studio monitor of some type. Does the model 1 use RF modulation for it's video out like the CoCo does?

    I haven't found one either. I've found CM-4 and CM-8 service manuals online, but no CM-5. There are similarities between the two monitors, and between them I might be able to trace what's wrong with...

    My dad taught me to tune the colour and focus on live CRTs when I was a kid, which must, by necessity, be done live. He never taught me to properly discharge the thing before doing any other work...

    Within DOS Shell, it's definitely from reading the directories, not from calculating free space. I think it tries to fast load the entire tree into memory so you can browse it quickly. On a small...

    One of the guys at my local retro-computer club brought a 4P for show-and-tell the one time. I was intrigued that it has the same style keyboard as the earlier Tandy 1000 models.

    Try from within DOS Shell. It has to do a directory and file count each time you select a drive.

    Still, how long does it take to do a DIR listing on an 8088 when your hard drive is in the gigabyte range? I dumped some archives of stuff from a few DOS machines we had years ago onto a CF card for...
