    You know, I have done that more than a few times on all kinds of machines, XT through the end of the AT era, and I do not think I have ever fried something doing it. The thing that has killed more...

    There are a few places online that can make 1"x1" replicas on silver that do the job really. I bought some from case-badges.com which were done really well and you can buy small numbers of them.

    The same data on exFAT will more than likely take up more space than when stored on NTFS, especially on multi TB drives. So I'd guess that the drive which uses more space for the same data is either...

    Scanning the drive with what? Chkdsk?

    A 4Tb drive with 2Tb of data on it would take quite a bit of time to scan with Chkdsk, even longer if you have it set to fix. IMO if you have a good copy of...

    I don't have a spare keyboard, but how about I send you an entire 6300 setup for the cost of shipping? It needs a new power supply, and the battery was yanked from it (so no leaking issue there).

    So if I am not mistaken in order to test components, like capacitors, you'd need to remove them right? IMO if you are removing them, then you may as well replace them since they are well beyond their...

    I'd say the second most common failure after caps are RAM ICs and then other such ICs around the board.
