    Glitch,

    Do you have anything in the works for a DS1497? Or will these work for the DS1497? The Compaq SystemPro uses a socketed DS1497 and at some point it needs to be replaced (if not already)....

    My issue with the account thing is that you get marries to the service and they change their terms on you (Photobucket I am looking at you...) If there is no accounts then they are just a disposable...

    sorry for the small image sizes. I went to the trouble of uploading them to an image service so that the full res 5MP image would be linked but apparently the image service decided to shrink them...

    Bear,

    That was my initial thinking as well. However, all the caps look pretty good. The PSU is actually in very good VISUAL shape for its age. I will post pictures later today. I have access to an...

    As a follow up question why would a functioning system (with the same current config) suddenly develop a short? i.e. asked another way what kind of component failing would make a system in a steady...

    No, my original message clearly states lights came on and fans turned indicating the PSU was connected to the computer when I tried turning it on so I was not sure why you were asking if it was...

    Not sure what you mean. For the initial attempt to start up the psu was attached to the system with multiple drives for load.
  11. Need help w/ PSU for a Compaq SystemPro XL

    I have a very clean and well stocked Compaq SystemPro XL (w/ original box and paper work) thanks to Chulofiasco.

    Unfortunately, the PSU died while CF was setting it up and it remains so. I am...

    Why surprised? Based on the ad it is definitely a fishing expedition. He doesn't know how much he can get for it so he is letting the buyers be poor saps and make offers. A real seller has a sale...

    Sorry to hear that. I had talked to him a number of times and we always meant to meet up in person.

    1. and 2. good to hear! I will keep an eye out. A vintage system honestly needs two serial ports and the LPT
    3. Yeah on the ED meh on the *" drive. Don't get me wrong. I fully understand why you...

    Couple of questions:

    1. Where you able to ever add in the parallel port?
    2. Any chance for a second serial port (i.e. total of two)?
    3. I saw the FDC supported FM and HD. Excellent! How about...

    How did you get into it? Did you drill the rivets?

    Chuck,

    I know that, you know that. Unfortunately, that does not make it interesting to most people. For most people it has to be a question of what can I do with this vs. it is just sitting in my...

    DM me.

    No need to get insulted. You are in a vintage computer forum. That would imply you are interested in vintage systems many of which were dead long before you were born. I have no idea when you were...

    This is exactly why I DON'T mention keyboards at all. I try to point out why the system is cool to get for its own merit. In this case I told OP it could make a nice CP/M machine and a very rare one...

    Caleb,

    Not to thread jack but have you tried taking the ZIP Battery pack apart? I have a few of them myself but I am positive by now the cells have gone bad. Would love to know if they can be...

    Well mine is fantastico - it was written in Apple Pascal on a IIc and it almost accurately approximates conversion of C to F temperatures! ;) But it is "L@@K Steve Jobs" rare! Only ONE copy in...

    Value is a f(desirability) and follows a logarithmic scale. Rarity only loosely correlates with value. For example my awesome temperature conversion program I wrote in AP Computers is "extremely...
