    I wonder if this issue could have anything to do with the fact that the 5155 keyboard and some 5160 keyboards dont use the reset line on the cable. They evidently reset themselves at power up and...

    You're very welcome. Palmzip has worked great for me. Well worth the price, and, yes these zip drives aren't the fastest, or the most reliable solution. They can develop what's called the "Click...

    Yup, I should have specified in my first response that PALMZIP was what my link was pointing to.

    You should be able to use THIS Driver with your 8086.. It's no free, but well worth the small cost. I've used it with an 8088 and it works flawlessly. Forget about Guest.exe!! Even with V30 Guest...

    OH! I didn't realize when you said "power cycle" that you meant "rapid power cycle". I guess you must not have tried the "rapid power cycle" after the XT-IDE was removed or you would have seen...

    Actually, the ATI EGA Wonder, looks great on the 5155 amber monitor as long as you don't go above 640 x 200. What I believe is "Low Resolution EGA", 640x200x16 colors, looks fantastic on the 5155...

    Very strange that it doesn't work without the slot 8 option selected. The compaq doesn't have the slot 8 card select signal requirement that the IBM XT has for slot 8 only. Do you have the optional...

    Two golf cart batteries in series is what the serious RVers like for dry camping. They last a long time and have lots of space for water. You need a good quality float charger like a battery tender...

    Hmm... That sounds like a combination of a weak power supply on the Compaq and a wonky capacitor on the Lo-Tech. If you let it sit, the capacitor discharges and and it looks like a normal draw on...

    Yep. Kind of silly. But silly mods make these old machines a blast to play with. I have three 5155s. Only one is stock. Other two have a bunch of "Really Silly MODS". I play with all three but...

    The seller could at least put the picture in the proper orientation! Of coarse, if I could afford 14k for that I could pay someone to turn my monitor on its side;) Wait, I think I recognize that...

    I'm not a programmer, so, I can't tell what the issue is. I have an XT-FDC that uses sergey's BIOS and it is very slow in my 5155 when the BIOS is active. Would you be willing to look at the code...

    Makes sense that shadowing makes it faster. Do you still see it trying multiple times to boot from floppy before going to the hard drive to boot? Unfortunately, my 5155 obviously doesn't have that...
