    That's odd. The two Apple Design Keyboards I own had screws and were easy to disassemble. Guess you have a later revision then.

    The ribbon cable is unlikely to be the issue, as many more keys would not work if even a single contact is bad. You need to disassemble the keyboard itself and clean the film and rubber contacts....

    When used for a second display, you can use a regular PC graphics card as well. It must only have Mac-specific firmware when used as the primary card.

    Simple answer: no. That's also not the purpose of DOSBox.

    "even at"? 70 Hz was very low and what you got with standard VGA. Flicker-free wasn't achieved until at least 85 Hz.

    I own a Megafile 30 for the Atari ST, which has an MFM hard disk inside. The manual tells you to let the drive warm up for 10 minutes before using it, otherwise it may malfunctioning. I guess that...

    Same here. No idea what people do with their keyboards to let them become that gross.

    Not knowing the full story, but if you don't do the hobby for yourself, you're probably better off stop doing it. A hobby isn't something you do for others.

    A tested, working GUS has quite a value. At least when speaking about eBay. I bought a PNP one last year for 50€, not on eBay...

    But this one is untested. If the GF1 chip is dead, it's not even...

    Not using Win98. My audio recording system is based on Linux and using an Asus Xonar card. SNR is 116 dB with that one, but not that it would matter for tapes or vinyl records. I'm using it mainly to...

    Even if it is IDE, it's NOT that easy. USB-to-IDE adapters only work in LBA mode, not with CHS. A 500 MB drive is unlikely to already support LBA, as it makes no sense for drives not larger than 504...

    The Live! has a SNR of 100 dB, just like the Audigy. That's already very good for a consumer card. The Audigy 2 even had 106 dB SNR, but no idea if they made Win98SE drivers for that.

    A Sound Blaster Live! for example. Since tapes don't have "high quality" in the first place, you don't have to care that much for anything better. Most work on tape recordings is done afterwards...

    There was no scroll wheel during the DOS/Win3.1 era. You can try some modern stuff like the Arachne Browser for DOS, but I doubt that even that will support a scroll wheel.

    Battery leakage doesn't happen that often. I'm collecting Macs for 20+ years now and only lost a single PowerMac 7100 because of a leaked battery. If the system still works, the battery is not leaked...

    The 65C02 has the illegal opcodes removed (breaks some software) and the WDC one has a different pin-out and needs an adapter.

    But apart from that, if it says "6502", it will work as a replacement.

    I would recommend checking the stability of the +5V rail from the PSU. RAM errors like this can be a result of voltage dropping or ripple current. And the fact that you get mixed results with...

    I like to use MS-DOS 5.0 for everything pre-386. For me, it has the best balance between memory usage, features, and compatibility.

    Very old drives like that one normally don't need any modification, as the Amiga followed the standards and old drives can be jumpered to use the standard pin-out as well. The hardest part is finding...
