    Or sometimes the tenses are confused: The seller states "works great" but really meant to write "workED great" i.e. as in "the last time I used it before all the magic smoke came out" :D. Not saying...

    Chuck,

    Thanks for the information. I meant to mention the bit about the chips on the CC IV and the fact that the chip is socketed so you can order replacements for the Intel 82077. I switched all...
  3. Microsolutions CompatiCard Comparison Table

    So I threw together a quick comparison table of the different CompatiCards for my own edification. I am posting it here in case it is helpful to anyone else or for when people go googling around. I...

    That's why I am double checking. If those are CIB games then I am interested. Otherwise meh...

    Hi,

    Is the SW complete? Original CD/Disk? Or are these copies?

    I can live with that! :D I think it would be a nice option to have even with trade offs. If you can't get video going/get some sort of output there is no pint in having a counter that you can't see!...

    A bit of necroposting here but I found more evidence that the initial conclusions were right/confirmed some of the info presented. These pictures are from a recent listing in eBay:

    Syclops,

    Actually those are it/very close. Not sure about length though. However, I already got the screws from the link Chuck(G) posted. Now just need the sleds.

    Chuck,

    You are awesome (for anyone keeping track I say that a lot about Chuck because it is true). That seller still does not show up when I do a search for "Compaq screw". Got to love eBay. Sorry...

    KC9UDX,

    Check out the second pic above. Head is 0.117" in height.

    Chuck,

    Your link isn't working. I think if you want to get real technical they maybe considered "Low Socket Head Cap" as they are flatter then the normal Socket Head Cap screws. If you look at...

    Chuck,

    I had done that search last night and I really didn't find much. There are lots of "laptop" screw sets for sale. Also it seems like the Chinese have created knockoffs of the Compaq/HP...

    No, definitely different on this system. This is a SystemPro/XL. I had heard about the extra screws in other Compaq and HP systems (e.g. extra screws mounted on the back of the PSU) but this one has...

    I have some green sleds from Dell my self but I don't believe they are compatible (at least mine are not). Here are the Compaq ones:

    Oooohh I like how you properly capitalized and trade marked it! ;)

    Well Semblex advertises a dual drive screw that sounds right. I have an email out to them to see if the screws are readily...

    I guess while asking for screws I may as well as for the green sleds as well. I have only one and need more to install additional drives. Anyone have nay idea what systems used the green sleds?

    Chuck,

    That is actually the one place I had not checked. So I just did and the green sleds are held in by regular Torx screws. These are used to install the outside accessible drives (e.g. floppy,...
  19. Not really HW but Compaq Slotted/Torx Dual Drive Screws

    Hello All,

    In the middle of a restoration project with a Compaq and I am in need of replacement screws. According to Wikipedia these screws were used in electronics manufacturing for awhile. In...

    Could be. :D The question is how well the rest of your system stands up. For example my 5150A is a bit later then yours in the serial number list but it is all original, super clean, in the original...

    Hi Chuck,

    I doubt it which means I have to keep the CCIV as the main BIOS in that system does not support 2.88MB drives and I doubt Everex is about to put out an update! Thanks again for checking!

    Chuck,

    Thanks for checking. So you are saying that the Adaptec card BIOS does not have the floppy code and it is dependent on the main system BIOS for the code?

    If Shadow Lord had the technical capabilities to do this it would have already been done ;). Frankly, I am surprised it is not a standard feature in the testing BIOSes (and I don't mean just yours,...
