    I recently purchased a Workgroup Server 8550 Prototype on eBay, when I received the machine the AV card was dangling outside the case and the cable was fed through expansion card slot. I tried removing the AV module as it was an eye-sore and I will never use it, but now it refuses to post. The...

    Odd LC II Motherboard

    Piggy backing on the other "odd" motherboard posts, Ive found an LCII board at the flea that is missing some of regular LCII markings.  Firstly, the 4 main ICs have hand written tags on them. I haven't seen an LCII with these type of stickers. Secondly, the motherboard's serial number sticker...

    SE/30 Graphics failure after MOBO wash

    I got a steal on an SE/30 for $30 last weekend. When I went to the sellers house, the machine was fully working (without any audio). I took it home and opened it up to remove the battery as well as replacing all the caps. I ordered the caps online and washed the lobo in warm water to remove any...

    Painted 512k Restoration

    I posted the link to a painted 512k on CL yesterday. I went and grabbed it today and began accessing the damage. The machine came with the original cary bag and mouse.

    Powermac G4 Identity Crisis

    Picked up this 400MHz "PCI" Powermac G4. System profiler says this is a "Powermac G3" but it is in a G4 case with a G4 processor. Not sure what this thing is. Did apple just not bother to change the system Id? Sorry about the image. Guess it's not my lucky day.

    SE/30 Zebra Strip

    I recently got an SE/30 in a giant lot of Macs for $100 from a older gentleman. This specific SE/30 has 32MB of RAM and a 50MHZ Diimo 030 accelerator. After speaking to him, he apparently developed a couple of programs for the SE/30 and so the upgrades were justified. When I powered it up, a...

    Yesterday I saw an ad on CL for a free 128k, I immediately emailed the seller and asked to setup a time. When I got to his house he threw in an extra keyboard, mouse, floppy drive (Harvard stamped) and a bunch of other software. The 128k was upgraded to a 512k, and he even included the screw...

    Installing a Fan in a iBook G3 Clamshell

    My iBook G4 Clamshell seemed to be running very hot and during OS installs it would freeze up. I looked online but couldn't find anyone who had actually installed a fan in a clamshell. The built-in heatsink seems to cool the G3 fine, but with a G4 its not cutting it. So I went online and bought...

    Cloning software for Mac OS 9.2.2

    Im looking for software to mass clone my Mac OS 9.2.2 install on my iMac G4 to IDE hard drives. Some of the iBooks I own have dead hard drives and instead of reinstalling the OS on each and every machine, Id like to just clone a 9.2.2 install onto the iBook.
