    WTB: twistless floppy cable and 3 1/2 floppy drive set to D0 for Tandy 1000

    So I'm looking to upgrade my Tandy 1000SX with a 720k 3 1/3 floppy drive to compliment the 360k 5 1/4 drive but I've had no luck untwisting my own cables. I keep getting general read errors and the such and I'm not sure if it's my floppy drive or my apparent sub-par ability to modify a floppy...

    Orchard Tiny Turbo question

    I recently acquired an Orchard Tiny Turbo 8088 to 286 accelerator. I've read a few places that this card is incompatible with the Tandy 1000 line. My question is, is the incompatibility due to the placement of the CPU socket on the tandy motherboard making the Tiny Turbo's cable far too short to...

    kind of an odd question but what was the first Macintosh to offer A/V in jacks as standard? also were there any A/V in Nubus or PDS cards for older Macintosh II systems?

    Wanted: lower bezel to a apple IIe color composite monitor

    I know this is a super long shot but I have an Apple IIe Color Composite Monitor missing the lower bezel. It's the hinged plastic part that folds down to reveal the adjusting knobs under. I figure it a long shot but maybe someone here has a completely dead or busted monitor their holding onto...

    installing a DF0 selector in an amiga 2000

    ok, so I bought a DF0 selector off AMIGAstore.eu some time ago to install in my amiga 2000 so I could select between my internal floppy drive and an external floppy emulator (to keep the origional look on the desktop). The instructions I found seem to be for an Amiga 500 where your supposed to...

    The Amiga 2000 only outputs monchrome via the composite jack?

    I just wanted to confirm this but does the Amiga 2000 only output monochrome via the rear composite jack? I wanted to do some simple video capturing via composite from my A2000 but all I was getting was a B/W signal. The Amiga is NTSC and not PAL. To firm this I even connected it up to a...

    WTB: anyone have any NEC VC SDRAM for sale?

    looking for NEC VC-SDRAM of any size. I think only NEC produced this RAM and it looks just like PC100/133. It was supposed to be a sort of competitor to RDRAM and DDR and was only supported by VIA Apollo PRO 133/133A and KX133 chipsets AFAIK. I was able to find this image of a stick...

    CPU voltage question on older Socket 7 board.

    I have a pretty early socket 7 board from 95 a Tyan S1468. Officially it only accepts up to a Pentium 166mhz and has 5v and 3.3v selectable voltages. My question is will something like a later AMD k6-2 400 work with this board? I know the BIOS almost certainly will not support it but I'm worried...

    WTB: bay rails for Gateway 2000 4dx2-66v

    This is going to be a bit of a longshot but I recently acquired a Gateway 2000 4dx2-66v I'd like to restore, unfortunately only one of the 5 1/4 bays was filled with a 3 1/2 floppy drive in a bay adaptor. Id like to install a CD drive and a 5 1/2 floppy drive in the other 2 bays but since this...

    what is composite CGA?

    so my previous understanding of a CGA video card was you had 2 options, you could output via the digital DE-9 for CGA, Hercules and all the other modes that use the CGA standard and then you had your RCA jack for outputting color composite via the analog cable to a TV with a composite jack. I'm...

    ATI small wonder CGA question and no color composite

    I have a few questions about the ATI small wonder CGA card. first off I have a version 1 and 2 and both have the same "issues". The cards seem to work just fine in CGA mode in almost circumstances and look correct with the exception of BurgerTime which in CGA mode looks very odd. I could only...
