    SE/30—my first recapping, so close to success

    I tested it tonight: starting with HD disconnected=question mark. I swapped the board into the other SE/30 and got the same as on the first: a chime, a cursor, and no booting or question mark. So I'm 99% positive it's the board. Any ideas where I can start looking now?

    I gave up for the moment on my Classic, and started on one of my my SE/30s. It had no startup chime, no drive activity, and the screen showed the simisimac pattern. I recapped with the Console5 set and cleaned the board with 99% IPA. It's not the neatest soldering job I've ever seen, but...

    Classic with battery damage—can it be saved?

    Update: it looks like the corrosion was holding some of it together. I'm going to hold off doing anything to it until I get a little better at this stuff. Or I find a Classic MB for cheap!

    Techworks 3DFX 8 MB Power 3D II PC PCI

    I think that's only for Voodoo 2 cards, though.

    Techworks 3DFX 8 MB Power 3D II PC PCI

    Any PCI-based Power Mac will be able to run it, with drivers and the pass-through cable, of course. Stability suffers once you get into OS 8 and above, because the drivers never got updated after Techworks and 3DFX went under. Are you sure that's an 8MB Power 3D II, though? That appears to be...
