    Cleaning the Brightness Pot?

    sometimes they are very hard to remove, I'd use a heat gun (just a few seconds) or a hair drier in order to soften the plastic and make the removal a little easier. Also, do you really need to remove the knob to apply D5?

    Bummer! So finally a ROM and HPV card arrived (both untested), same as symptoms as before. :cry: I'll PM LaPorta in order to test with another motherboard.

    Macintosh SE/30 Ram upgrade

    For the 32Mb you were trying to get, I believe a cheaper and more reliable way to do it in the SE/30, should be getting eight 4Mb SIMMs.

    HDI-45 to another monitor via a VGA adapter (which used to work and displayed video many times before the failure) There´s two versions of the HPV card as I understand, both PDS, sometimes called PowerMac High Performance Video: -820-0522-A, (2MB VRAM frame buffer), came with the 7100, but fits...

    8100 not displaying text in dialog or menus!

    This got weirder... so the machine had 8.5 installed, the CD's I booted from were 8.1 and 9.0.4, no text with those. But I was playing with a new RaSCSI which had a volume with a 7.5 version, booted from that version and text was shown!!! Everything looked ok. I was happy, then upgraded to 7.6...
