    CRT Repair in the MIdwest US

    Is anyone aware of somewhere or someone that would repair a computer CRT in the Midwest still? I am located in Central IL. I have a IBM P275 and Viewsonic (P-something?) that could use some fixing. The IBM runs fine for the most part but the colors seem a bit washed out and the brightness is a...

    IBM Aptiva 2161/2 Proprietary Power Supply

    I am trying to power up an Aptiva 2161 system board with a 300gl 6282 PSU. They are rated at the same wattage the only thing is that the 300gl does not include the 3 pin power connector required on the 2161 board (at least not directly). The 300gl PSU does have two 3 pin connectors but it does...

    IBM Aptiva Stealth Access Station for a 2159 or 2162?

    I was curious if the separate floppy/cd access stations for the Aptiva Stealth split-system models are interchangeable between the 2159 and 2162 models? From what I can see the access station itself looks nearly identical for each. However, I did notice, after looking through the hardware...

    List of every IBM Aptiva Split System Model

    I was getting tired of having to dig for the system variation specs of all the U.S. Aptiva split systems so I made it easy for anyone else who gets OCD over small portions of computer history like me 😀.

    Monitor Stand for IBM Stealth Series Monitor

    Sorry I posted this in the Pentium section but meant to post here... Was able to get a 17" Aptiva Stealth Series monitor recently but it lacks the stand that allows it to sit over the top of the media dock that this model of Aptiva comes with. Was wondering if anyone has one available or knows...

    Modifying Character Set on a Tseng ET4000AX

    I have a Tseng ET4000AX video card that I recently got off eBay. It works well other than the fact that it displays a few weird text characters. For example: instead of \ it shows Ð and instead of @ it shows Ż. Is there any way to change this back to the normal character set in the bios?
