    Although I could certainly give it a good home, I would imagine that the shipping costs might be prohibitive. (Assuming of course that you'd be willing to ship it. I am located in the US, Illinois to...

    It is very likely that the power adapter has failed. In general terms, nothing you do on the output side of that power supply (including shorting the output) should cause any fuse to blow under...

    Software to provide Sound Blaster emulation for the M-ACPA does exist, although I may well have the last extant copy. It is reported to work only under DOS boxes in Windows, which counts some DOS...

    Just a little bump to report that the corrupted pictures (not sure what happened there) have been fixed. I'm also still looking for this computer or one similar to it.

    Your Model 55SX has only three slots. The fourth "slot" is actually connected to the hard drive via a long cable running from the top of the expansion slot riser and its 72 pin connector over to the...

    Wanted: HP Vectra 486xx/U Desktop PC

    I'm putting out some feelers to try and find a Hewlett-Packard EISA bus 486 PC from around 1992-1993 or thereabouts. Unfortunately, the example I've got is incomplete and may not have survived its...

    The flat orange discs are ceramic disc capacitors. The yellowish "orbs" are tantalum capacitors. A replacement would need to match both capacitance and voltage ratings of the original part.

    Not 100%, but I thought the Belkin cable I used for this task many years ago claimed to be wired straight through.

    It failed after many years of use on quite a few different computers, and I never...

    You might as well keep those parts handy, because you just never know. The motherboard(s?) in those pictures are both the 20 MHz, later revision "short boards". They're compatible with everything...

    Absolutely. You can always choose "test the computer" from the top level menu of the reference diskette once the computer has started from it. However, there is a MUCH better way.

    Immediately...

  12. Adapter Definition Files

    If the disk drive in the PS/2 turns out to be good (or you manage to fix it), and you get the reference diskette to start, you're going to need to know about Adapter Definition Files.

    These are...

    My attention was recently directed to this thread, as I don't get to this forum very often. I've read over some of the pages and looked at your pictures. Let's see if I can't shed some light on what...

    I do plan to get one. Since it didn't have any "guests" inside, I need to drag it inside and charge up the camera. Or find the memory card or something. I forget which. :p

    None whatsoever. It uses a non-rechargeable lithium battery. I've never known those to leak. I remove them anyway. No sense in taking a chance.

    Most of them are soldered in my other equipment, but...
  17. Early Zenith Data Systems 386DX-16 (special keyboard needed?)

    From my pile of "stuff I need to go through", I recently unearthed a large Zenith Data Systems desktop PC. I'd have figured this to be a 286 based system from its sheer size, but I found a note on...

    I was disappointed to see the Mozilla organization drop support for Windows 2000, yet only mildly surprised at the same time. As I'm sure many here know, they dumped PowerPC Macintoshes as well....

    IBM PS/2 Model 57SLC2 "486" Score!

    The supply of pretty much anything IBM PS/2 related has long since dried up around these parts. Toward the end, all I ever saw were really beat up PS/2 Model 25 computers, usually with heavy screen...

    I wonder if many people who wanted to have a color display simply used a existing color television set. It wouldn't have worked too well for 80 column mode, but I would expect games and such to be...
