    Doom? Well, then, those blue LEDs might just be appropriate since they come directly from hell. :P

    I recall Quarterdeck Manifest being quite useful for that, and I think it ran fine under DOS 3.x.

    It seems like it was quite common to start with a grand idea, and then reality hit and you had to shoehorn that design in to the second rate parts you could actually get.

    Somewhere there was a...

    Probably the ideal situation would be to get a quote for repair or replacement from an actual business. I think there are a few people on this forum that do vintage/legacy computer repair...

    The Kaypro 2000. Because if you dropped it, it would redefine your foot. :)

    Were all of these cards from the same computer originally? If so, then they would have the same amount of use/wear/aging and having multiple capacitors blow on different parts would not be too...

    That's Chang Labs MicroPlan spreadsheet, rather than Microsoft Multiplan. Just FYI.

    Windows for Workgroups has it's own built in network stack implemented as protected mode .386 VXDs. As such, networking is only available when Windows is running. That includes TCP/IP, file share...

    During the early days of MS-DOS, OEMs did some odd things with their version numbers. Some of them intentionally bumped numbers to make themselves look ahead of competitors, others just sloppily...

    Perhaps import them with Excel 95/97?

    [DUCKS]

    Or perhaps try loading them and re-saving them with some of the earlier Quattro Pro for Windows versions. There are a few on Winworld. Then perhaps...

    Most commercial video DVDs are COPY PROTECTED. It is usually not possible to view their contents via Windows Explorer. You must start your DVD Video player software and it should locate the disk and...

    That has got to be just a bad power supply. If there were anything wrong on the motherboard or controller you would not have been able to get that far without seeing smoke from either of those. ATX...

    The bigger question is, what else are you loading at startup? Some programs may not be compatible with loading high.

    But yea, if you aren't doing much picky DOS stuff, EMM386 is what you need....

    It depends on the order it is displaying it. SpeedStor would give you a textual list of bad tracks so you could see if it is just one head.

    You could try reducing the number of heads in the BIOS...

    Ah, a possible track zero error then? Speedstor does have a destructive testing option, and I *think* that would test the track the same as the others.

    What I would do if a track zero error is...

    How much RAM does that card have on it? Win9x doesn't like hojillibytes of ram, but I would think an MX200 would not have that much. Is that AGP? You might need to check your BIOS and adjust AGP...

    First use NDD to check the disk for errors. Then tell it to make the disk bootable - you will need to supply a bootable floppy disk with the version of DOS you want to use. It is easy to use, I'm not...

    You must have made a typo converting the file.

    IMD says it is trying to write "250K SD" - that is incorrect. It should say "250K DD".

    That could only happen if you specified the wrong "DM="...

    When writing, the only thing you need to specify is the drive letter, and double stepping - which should be off if you are using a 360k drive rather than a 1.2mb drive.

    When reading a 360k disk,...

    ImageDisk only knows how to read and write its own ".IMD" files. But you can convert to/from IMG files.

    So why use ImageDisk then? Because it is a fairly robust tool, and it is better at telling...

    That is kind of an odd way for an EPROM to fail, but it is possible (Although, I would suspect corrosion on the legs or in the socket). If the contents of the EPROM are not blank, then just try...

    If all you are doing is writing IBM PC disks, then the only line that matters is:
    "Double Density at 250kbps.......passed"

    That means Imagedisk can communicate with your floppy disk controller...

    Just a couple of thoughts - is there a known good soft sectored disk in the drive? Perhaps try running ImageDisk in alignment mode and see if it lets you step the heads or do anything else.

    Just cut or break it off and clean out any bits of debris. The import thing is to prevent the dead legs or other stuff from shorting against anything.
