I snagged 2 IBM PS/Valuepoint 433SX/Si computers along with a matching monitor, mouse, and 3 model M keyboards.

I saw a socket for a math co processor or upgrade cpu, the 486SX is soldered to the board. Does anyone know which jumper to change when I put in a DX2-66? Plus I'm having a hard time finding the system reference disk. The IBM ftp site no longer has anything for this machine. Machine type is 6381 Model is K50.

I'd like to make it my vintage gaming box.

And for those of you about to ask. Yes, I am using one of the model M keyboards on my modern desktop. C'mon clicky key boards are awesome!!!

IBM PS/ValuePoint files and information

IBM PS/ValuePoint files and information

Congratulations on obtaining those ValuePoint systems. Specifications of your system and details of other ValuePoint models are in the Personal System Reference at http://www.lenovo.com/psref/pdf/vpbook.pdf.

IBM's FTP site still hosts the old IBM PC BBS at ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs. Some of the ValuePoint files are in the "valuepnt" folder and elsewhere. Unfortunately, the files are hidden from view, therefore you have to know the file name you're after, but I list the files in the "valuepnt" folder below.

For example, BIOS flash updates for your ValuePoint are there. Jumper settings for your ValuePoint are listed in the ValuePoint Hardware Maintenance Manual located at ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/valuepnt/s61g1423.pdf; see also the ValuePoint Hardware Maintenance Manual Supplement at ftp://ftp.software.ibm.com/pc/pccbbs/valuepnt/d2uf4spl.pdf.

There is lots of historical information on 1990s IBM PCs in the IBM PC Partner Information hosted at http://ps-2.kev009.com:8081/pcpartnerinfo/ctstips and the IBM Electronic Pocket Reference Manual at http://ps-2.kev009.com:8081/eprmhtml. Use a search engine to search for content inside kev009.com.
