There might be differences, though, on which pin drove A20, on the 8742. That is possible but not likely. A schematic would show any pin differences.

    Thanks for that info again Dwight, I am not a skilled as you I am afraid my expertise is a Motorcycle mechanic and vintage Computers are just a hobby. Ive learnt loads over the years but its ongoing so please forgive my limitations. Anyway Dwiight its my fault but this thread has sort of gone off topic, which was originally about learning how to use my new Rom programmer & creating a set of SuperSoft Roms.
    I do actually have a dedicated and active thread on the problem with the Dell keyboard controller here: http://www.vcfed.org/forum/showthrea...Keyboard-error

    roadrash I'm in the Netherlands and my programmer can read and write the Intel D8742 so if shipping is not to expensive for you i can try to dump the firmware.

    Hi pietja, Thanks very much for the offer. I was going to send them to modem7 in Australia which can be a bit expensive. It would be a great help if you can read the code out of 8742 roms. I just hope the code is still in there. pietja can you also help me out with replacement "U127 keyboard controller" for a first version 5170 motherboard as well which I also need. The firmware for this keyboard rom is available here: http://www.minuszerodegrees.net/rom/rom.htm According to this all 3 revisions of the 5170 motherboard had the same firmware. If you Personal Message me your Home and email addresses and details of any costs etc, I will get it transferred to you, then I will get my 8742 rom posted to you.
    Many thanks
    Jon
