    Yeah, you will think there is something wrong with the LCD...but believe me, it's probably fine. It's that bad.

    Yeah, the 700C and 755C seem to use the same backlight/inverter board so I'm hoping one of TiPC's spares can help me here.
  5. Wanted: Compaq LTE Lite4/33c-specific DOS 6.00 and Windows 3.1 distributions

    So, I've got a LTE Lite4/33c that's been sloppily upgraded to a newer version of DOS and Windows 95 using generic media. This isn't optimal, so I'd like to roll it back before I just go for generics....

    I was considering just swapping in one of Glitchworks' 12887 replacements since it sounds like the 128's backwards compatible in most cases. Any thoughts on that plan?

    Anyone know where the inverter board is? The pertinent IBM Mobile Systems HMM doesn't say a lot on that note.

  10. Thinkpad 755C with dead backlight: Worth replacing? Possible to replace?

    I got a pile of 486s from a coworker earlier: Two AT&T Globalysts and a Thinkpad 755C. The former two didn't have any clearing issues, a dead HDD on one globalyst aside, but the Thinkpad's got a dead...

    Compaq SLT Chargers?

    So, I'm looking into plan Bs in case my sPORT SX plan fails and I'm considering Compaq's early true laptop fare. I like the SLT 386s/20's oddball design, but that power connector looks nuts. Are...

    while you're inside the machine, check the caps on the floppy drives for leakage...and be VERY careful with the PSU/ground wire arrangements. The power board is a deathtrap.
