    iMac G4 - No bong or image on screen

    Just use the internal DIMM till it works then put it back together and then try the SODIMM till they both work. I would use a different machine to test the RAM (alone) since it would be easier. Did you get that metal piece you were missing?

    You just need PC2700 (333), any chance the modules are bad or slower then 333?

    OS 6 was kind of made for a lower then VGA resolution B&W display anyway.

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    I also have the 586/133 model with the octopus cable (built in sound) and original manual plus a couple 386 models.

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    I have that card (or somewhat close): Mine has all the chips filled and I noticed the CPU has an added voltage regulator with heatsink (for dx4 chips).

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    Ok, looked up that WD90c30 chip and it is a VGA chip. I had looked that CirisLogic chip up and it is not for video so I called it a day.

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    My only idea was the CPU (or a support chip overheating or shorting to something) causing timing issues with the software.

    Orange Micro NuBus PC Card - Need Help

    A20 is a keyboard error. I don't think that card has its own video chip or VRAM since there is no video out cable. The video is using the macs built in hardware for display. Does the card work 100% with the original CPU?
  10. This is the drive, I think it is a Teac CDR-56S. Not sure what version of toast I used, it was a long time ago. The drive above it is a 1.3GB MO drive.

    Super rare Macintosh II Daystar PDS adapter

    A Mac II and IIcx adapter recently sold on ebay cheap. I have one of both. I think a working Mac II is probably as hard to find as the Daystar adapter.
  12. Burning software needs to know the drive specs of a burner so you need drivers for that. You can use most SCSI cdr/cdrw as a cdrom without specific drivers.
  13. I have burned CDR using a IIfx and a Teac 6x burner without problems. 1x is 150KB/sec so you won't have issues burning until the SCSI HD has problems keeping up (or you saturate the SCSI Bus). 6x would be 900KB/sec (I was using the built in external SCSI bus and my HD was a more modern drive on a FWB jackhammer). There are updates to toast that support newer drives. https://winworldpc.com/product/toast/3x This has download links for Asatre Toast 2.x, to Adaptec toast 3.x and 4.x. (before Roxio purchased it). Some manuals and updates are there as well.

    Ethernet card stops SE/30 booting

    How exactly does a leg get removed from a densely packaged chip without even bending the other legs and not leaving some marks on the solder side that it was there?
  15. Any particular reason you want to test the 840av (40mhz 68040)?
